Effects of dietary supplementation of arginine-silicate-inositol complex on absorption and metabolism of calcium of laying hens

Abstract

The effects of supplementation of arginine-silicate-inositol complex (ASI; 49.5-8.2-25 g/kg, respectively) to laying hens were investigated with respect to eggshell quality, calcium (Ca) balance, and expression of duodenal proteins related to Ca metabolism (calbindin and tight junction proteins).
