EQUINE | helps ADVERTORIAL LEVUCELL SC to maintain a suitable environment in the hindgut to support a healthy balance of microfl ora and boost the level of friendly anaerobic bacteria present. LEVUCELL SC stabilizes hingut pH by competing for lactic acid producing bacteria’s substrates. LEVUCELL SC provides some of the nutrients essential for the development of a healthy balance of microfl ora (amino acids, B vitamins, etc …). As a result, the digestible fraction of fi ber (hemicellulose and cellulose) becomes more accessible to the action of specifi c microorganisms. LEVUCELL SC improves the feed value of this digestible fraction by stimulating the growth and increasing the activity of the cellulotic and hemicellulolitic microfl ora. 8 80 70 60 Control 6 50 40 5 30 20 LEVUCELL SC 7 dDry matter dNDF 4 dADF Total anaerobic flora (log10 CFU/g) Total cellulolytic flora (log10 CFU/g) Moscow State University of Applied Biotechnology, 2007, *p<0.05; ** p<0.01; ***p<0.001 LALLEMAND ANIMAL NUTRITION SPECIFIC FOR YOUR SUCCESS www.lallemandanimalnutrition.com SUPPORTS AND MAINTAINS DIGESTIVE HEALTH LEVUCELL SC 2 stabilises the hindgut reducing the risk of acidosis Accumulation of lactate and a parallel fall in pH in the hindgut is characteristically seen in horses fed high starch diets, especially where the level of forage is sub-optimal. This change can unbalance microfl ora and signifi cantly increase the risk of colic and other digestive disorders. LEVUCELL SC supplementation signifi cantly increases the number of lactate utilising bacteria and reduces total lactate in the hindgut. The stabilisation of the hindgut is seen in the consistency of droppings in horses fed LEVUCELL SC.
