Natural antioxidants play important roles in maintaining chicken health, productive and reproductive performance of breeders, layers, rearing birds, and growing broilers. There is a wide range of antioxidant molecules in the body: vitamin E, carotenoids, selenium, ascorbic acid, coenzyme Q, carnitine, taurine, antioxidant enzymes, etc. In the body all antioxidants work together to create the antioxidant network called "antioxidant systems" with Se being the "chief-executive." Analysis of the… Expand
Nutritional modulation of the antioxidant capacities in poultry: the case of vitamin E.
TLDR
Evidence related to modulation of the antioxidant capacities in poultry by vitamin E is presented and it was shown that increased vitamin E supplementation in the breeder's or cockerel's diet increased their resistance to various stresses, including high polyunsaturated fatty acids, mycotoxin, or heat stress.

Cellular antioxidant mechanism of selenium-enriched yeast diets in the protection of meat quality of heat-stressed hens
ABSTRACT The effects and mechanisms of dietary selenium-enriched yeast (SeY, at Se 0, 0.25, and 0.50 mg/kg) on breast meat quality and oxidative stability of heat-stressed laying hens were studied.Expand
Antioxidant Defence Systems and Oxidative Stress in Poultry Biology: An Update
TLDR
This new direction in improving antioxidant defences for poultry in stress conditions is related to an opportunity to activate a range of vitagenes via Nrf2-related mechanisms to maximise internal AO protection and redox balance maintenance. Expand
Vitagenes in avian biology: protective functions of sirtuins
TLDR
It seems likely that the vitagene concept of stress management could be used for maintenance/improvement of eggshell gland health, gut health, and liver health of modern poultry under commercially relevant stress conditions, however, roles of SIRT modulation by nutritional means in stress adaptation/protection in avian species await further investigation.

Selenium source and level on performance, selenium retention and biochemical responses of young broiler chicks
TLDR
The current assay aimed to investigate growth and biochemical responses, as well as Se retention of growing chicks fed diets supplemented with organic and inorganic Se levels and where the trace minerals were provided as organic chelates or inorganic salts according to Se source assessed. Expand
Application of Selenium Conjugated to Animal Protein in Laying Hens’ Diet for the Production of Selenium-Enriched Eggs
TLDR
The results showed that the supplementation of organic selenium provided by SCIP in the diets of laying hens enhanced performance and egg quality without any toxicity effect, even at the 10 mg/kg inclusion level. Expand
Nutritional significance of amino acids, vitamins and minerals as nutraceuticals in poultry production and health – a comprehensive review
TLDR
In this review, the uses of amino acids, vitamins and minerals as well as their mode of action in growth promotion and elevation of immune system are discussed. Expand
Maternal Selenium and Developmental Programming
TLDR
Maternal nutrition affects the performance and health of the progeny, and both maternal and offspring Se supplementations are essential for the optimal health and antioxidant protection of the offspring. Expand
Synergistic effect of Spirulina platensis and selenium nanoparticles on growth performance, serum metabolites, immune responses, and antioxidant capacity of heat-stressed broiler chickens.
TLDR
Dietary inclusion of SP and selenium nanoparticles, particularly their combination at levels 5 g SP plus 0.2 mg SeNPs kg-1, improved growth performance, carcass yield, immunity, and antioxidant capacity of heat-stressed broilers. Expand
Taurine in poultry nutrition
TLDR
A great body of evidence from medical sciences showing protective effect of Tau in various model systems and in clinical practices clearly indicate a need for further research in the area, and nutritional modulation of commercially relevant stresses in poultry production by using Tau deserves more attention.
