Usually, when one recognizes that damage has been done, one tries to mitigate the impact by offering antioxidants that provide electrons to neutralize the free radicals. So, the mechanism is supplying a certain extra number of electrons. On the other hand, one could also look at the process as such from a quality point of view as an alternative to this. What could be done to neutralize the free radicals preventive even if there is no excess of electrons? Could phytogenics play a role in this as it is known that the efficiency of the anti-oxidative process also depends on different enzymes. Wouldn’t it be more efficient if one could additionally stimulate the secretion of these anti-oxidative enzymes or increase their activity by using the proper phytogenic molecules?
Phytogenic molecules are known for their variety of biochemical and physiological activities. Wouldn’t it be an opportunity to look for natural molecules that are able to stimulate the secretion of antioxidant enzymes in the cell? Where in nature can we find molecules or ingredients that are not toxic to poultry but still have this stimulating effect on the secretion of antioxidant enzymes?
