WHY SHOULD YOU USE LEONARDITE AS A FEED MATERIAL
Advantages of potassium humate (Leonardite):
• It has a high biological activity and is environmentally safe
• It increased animal and bird productivity, accelerates their growth, increases weight gain and viability of young animals
• It increases the resistance of animals to stress and adverse environmental conditions
• It has no allergenic or mutagenic effect
• It can be applied with all types of dry and liquid feed
Product form: Potassium humate polydisperse granules of 0,1–4,0 mm. It is easily soluble in water, creates slight sediment. Its solubility in water amounts to 90–92 %. It is easily dispersed, does not sinter and is easily mixed with feed. It is made from heavily enriched brown coal - Leonardite.
Chemical composition: It contains at least 700 g/kg of potassium humate and fulvate, salts of silicic acids, sulphur, macro- and micronutrients in the form of a chelate.
Use: Humate is used as a feed additive in animal husbandry. It is a natural, highly efficient biostimulator, immunostimulant and adaptogen. It optimises all types of animal metabolism. It increases haemoglobin blood levels and normalises the content of proteins, lipids, lipoprotein complexes, minerals and vitamins. It stimulates the processes of cell regeneration, increases immunity and protective properties of the organism.
Humate does not contain genetically modified organisms (GMO).
Contraindications for the use of humate – none found.
It is compatible with other feed and medicinal products.
After application of humate feed additive, the products from animals, including birds, can be used in the food industry without any restrictions.
Preventive and therapeutic effects of humic acids on animal organism:
Mucosal coating and the binding effect
Humic acids have are able to form mucosal coating on the digestive tract and it protects the organism against infection and toxins. Macro-colloid structure of humic acids also provides a good protection of peripheral capillaries and damaged mucosal cells. In addition, humic acids help to prevent excessive water loss though the intestine.
Antibacterial and viricidal effects
Humic acids affect the metabolism of bacterial carbohydrates and proteins, they catalyse the process. This leads to direct rapid destruction of bacterial and/or viral cells. Another antibacterial mechanism is associated with the formation of ionic bonds of high-molecular fragments of infectious bacteria (toxins). Their toxic effect on mucosal cell physiological processes can be significantly reduced or completely neutralised.
Topical, oral and subcutaneous administration of humic acids helps to reduce inflammatory processes.
Anti-sorption and absorption effects
Since high-molecular humic acids are almost completely preserved in the digestive tract while reaching up to the small intestine, their anti-sorption and absorption effects occur exactly where they are needed – in the gastrointestinal tract. Primary cationic nitrogen oxides (protein toxins, toxic substances) are stopped; their absorption is significantly reduced or completely stopped, their excretion with faeces is accelerated. Since the absorption by humic acids involves not only physical and chemical interactions, but also complex formation and ion exchange, it means that it is more intensive and more dynamic than normal physical absorbers.
Impact on the immune system
Humic acids stimulate the immune system and increase phagocytosis. The inductive effect of humic acids’ phenolic groups responsible for immune effects is the basis for successful treatment of the so-called “factorial diseases” of young animals.
Humic acids stabilise intestinal microflora, help to absorb nutrients – improve feed efficiency. This leads to an increase in the animals’ body weight without increasing the amount of feed in the diet.
