Seaweed Supplementation Failed to Affect Fecal Microbiota and Metabolome as Well as Fecal IgA and Apparent Nutrient Digestibility in Adult Dogs

Algal supplementation at a dose of 15 g/kg of diet failed to exert noticeable effects on the canine fecal parameters evaluated in the present study, and chemical and microbiological analyses did not reveal any effect by seaweed ingestion.

Seaweeds, Intact and Processed, as a Valuable Component of Poultry Feeds

Poultry production is an important area of the agricultural economy. Nowadays, there is an interest in novel sources of feed additives that will improve production performance and poultry health. As

A Review of the Varied Uses of Macroalgae as Dietary Supplements in Selected Poultry with Special Reference to Laying Hen and Broiler Chickens

An overview of the utilization of specific seaweeds as sustainable feed sources for poultry production is provided, including a detailed survey of seaweed-supplemented diets on growth, performance, gastrointestinal flora, disease, immunity and overall health of laying/broiler hens.


Histological observations concluded that birds, which received brown algae in drinking fresh water, had better intestinal health in terms of well-developed villi with their columnar epithelial lining, which indicative of an increase of the digestive and absorptive surface area leading to better nutrient utilization.



Effect of feeding intact brown seaweed Ascophyllum nodosum on some digestive parameters and on iodine content in edible tissues in pigs

Intact A. nodosum brown seaweed may be introduced in pig nutrition as a feed material with a double strategy: improvement of pig gut health and performances and iodine enrichment of porcine tissues.

Prebiotics: the concept revisited.

A prebiotic is a selectively fermented ingredient that allows specific changes, both in the composition and/or activity in the gastrointestinal microflora that confers benefits upon host well-being and health and the "dose argument" is not supported by the scientific data: it is misleading for consumers and should not be allowed.

Effects of diets containing different concentrations of mannanoligosaccharide or antibiotics on growth performance, intestinal development, cecal and litter microbial populations, and carcass parameters of broilers.

Under conditions of this study, MOS conferred intestinal health benefits to chickens by improving its morphological development and microbial ecology but, there were no additional benefits of the higher MOS dosage.

Cecal populations of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria and Escherichia coli populations after in vivo Escherichia coli challenge in birds fed diets with purified lignin or mannanoligosaccharides.

Birds fed MOS or LL had a comparative advantage over CTL+ birds in increasing populations of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria and lowering E. coli loads after challenge.

Antibiotic growth promoters in agriculture: history and mode of action.

The biological basis for antibiotic effects on animal growth efficiency will consider effects on intestinal microbiota and effects on the host animal and will use the germ-free animal to illustrate effects of the conventional microflora.

Effect of supplementation of prebiotic mannan-oligosaccharides and probiotic mixture on growth performance of broilers subjected to chronic heat stress.

The results showed that chronic HS reduces broiler production performance, intestinal microarchitecture, and increases adrenal hormone concentrations, and supplementation of the MOS prebiotic and the PM can partially lessen these changes.

Spatial heterogeneity and stability of bacterial community in the gastrointestinal tracts of broiler chickens.

The results suggested that the microbial communities of 7 main segments in the chicken GIT were distinctive according to both individuals and the different segments of GIT, but their stability was maintained along the GIT.

Effects of dietary inclusion of probiotic and synbiotic on growth performance, organ weights, and intestinal histomorphology of broiler chickens.

The dietary supplementations resulted in an increase in the villus height and crypt depth of intestinal mucosa of broilers and associated with improvement of growth performance for both synbiotic and probiotic.

Introducing inulin-type fructans

A series of animal studies demonstrate that inulin-type fructans affect the metabolism of lipids primarily by decreasingtriglyceridaemia because of a reduction in the number of plasma VLDL particles and the human data largely confirm the animal experiments.
