The potential benefits of natural growth promoters
Intensive research has focused on the
potential of natural growth promoters (NGP) to replace antibiotics. The
beneficial effects of NGP are mainly attributed to their potential to promote a
beneficial gut microflora which protects the host against pathogens and helps to
alleviate periods of stress. Tobias Steiner of Biomin argues that a
well-adjusted combination of different strategies will maximise the efficacy of
NGP in antibiotic-free feeding systems.
