Powerful protection against endotoxins

Endotoxins are natural pyrogenic components found in the outer cell membrane of gram-negative bacteria, normally found in the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) of animals. The most common bacteria family to contain endotoxins is Enterobacteriaceae, typically present in the intestines. Stressors can produce a microbial imbalance in the GIT, stimulating the production of more endotoxins, whose toxic effects negatively impacts performance. Applying an effective endotoxin binder notably lowers the risk of this ever-present danger.

Where are they?

Found in the GIT, endotoxin containing gram-negative bacteria are ever-present in varying amounts. Outside of the gut, they can be found in feed, feces, and even the air. From here, they can enter animals through the feed, the environment, and even as a bioaerosol through the respiratory tract. Once ingested, they are then excreted via the feces to repeat the cycle. Since it is cyclical, high levels of endotoxins can have a compounding presence in livestock stables. A high presence of endotoxins is not only a threat to animals but also the workers on the farm or even people living near a farm.

When do they occur?

Though gram-negative bacteria is always present at some level in the gut. There are many factors that can increase translocation, release, and potentialization of endotoxins:

  • Changes in microbiota
  • Antibiotics use
  • Heat stress
  • Contaminated feed
  • Disturbed gut barrier
  • Parturition
