EW Nutrition introduces new phytogenic additives

With Nutrax, German company EW Nutrition introduces a new generation of standardised phytogenic feed additives; essential oils, extracts and oleoresins obtained from herbs and spices of the highest possible quality.

For this purpose a combination of different patented extraction methods is used. These special extraction methods optimize the recovery of important secondary plant compounds used in the phytogenics.
Product synergy
According to the most recent scientific insights, these secondary plant compounds (phytamines such as bitterns, tannins, alkaloids, mucilage) interact within the plant and as such it is only the combination of these substances that determines the effectiveness.
Therefore synthesised or isolated substances often do not have the same effect when administered in animals.
For the Nutraxproducts, the phytamines thus obtained are combined to form synergistically acting complexes.
Depending on the intended use, these substances are then micro capsulated, coated, or put on carrier-substances via the most recent technologies.
They are then combined in a manner that stability until the site of action (gut) could be guaranteed.
Nutraxproducts are currently available for piglets and sows.
