ImmuGuard-Immune Stimulant

ImmuGuard, a combination from various fermentation products derived from Saccharomyces cerevisiae and fructo-oligosaccharides, is formulated to boost immunity, promote a healthy intestinal tract and improve animal well-being and performance.

The Challenge

The intestinal tract of new-borns is rapidly colonised by a complex microbial flora soon after birth. The protection supplied from mother to juvenile animal only lasts 4-5 days. Its own immune system does not appear until about the 21st day when antibodies start to be formed in the intestinal mucous membrane. During the intervening period, any lapse in the intestinal microflora balance is particularly important to prevent infections and strengthen the immunity.

The Solution

The β glucans in ImmuGuard are produced by extracting a purified type of β glucan from the wall of yeast cells. This material acts as a specific stimulator of the immune system. This results in greater activity of white blood cells to destroy pathogens and also to produce compounds such as peroxide and nitric oxide which inhibit pathogen development.
ImmuGuard rich in bioactive ingredients and nutrients such as peptides, amino acids, nucleotides derived from Saccharomyces cervicae positively effects probiotic bacteria such as Lactobacilli and Bifidobacterium by enhancing their survivability and stimulating their growth.

Mannan-oligosaccharide (MOS) in the product binds pathogenic bacteria including E. coli, Salmonella, Proteus and Klebsiella and prevent their colonisation in the intestine. Moreover, ImmuGuard serves as a substrate for the growth of specific beneficial bacteria in the lower gut and help to prevent the establishment of pathogens on the intestinal mucosa.
