A REVIEW ON MULTI DISCIPLINARY ACTIONS OF HERBS IN POULTRY WORLD: ADLIFE NUTRACEUTICALS

A REVIEW ON MULTI DISCIPLINARY ACTIONS OF HERBS IN POULTRY  WORLD: ADLIFE NUTRACEUTICALS

Among the livestock sectors poultry production systems are the most intensively reared with

developments especially in the areas of nutrition, disease control, genetic improvement, management

and organization of dietary requirements along with the pressure of increasing demand for poultry

products as well as threats of emerging pathogens so this sector is badly in need of sustainable

therapeutic and production ads especially based on herbs. Many herbs have been recorded fruitfully

used by veterinarians to treat a variety of disease conditions in animals. The present study on ADLIFE

NUTRACEUTICALS discusses the various useful and practical application of the rich heritage of herbal

wealth for safeguarding poultry health in general, combating infectious as well as non – infectious

diseases caused by microbes and parasites along with immunomodulatory actions for countering

immunosuppressive diseases. Moreover highlighting herbs based poultry growth promoters for

increasing production performances use of herbs as antioxidants and their role in organic egg and meat

production is a special attraction of the review that will draw the attention of the poultry specialists as

well as farming communication. The information will be useful to increase poultry production and

protect the health of birds in a better way from traditional ways towards modern perspectives and also

would promote and popularize usage of herbs amongst poultry produces people around the world are

now aware of the limitations of synthetic drugs and chemicals in terms of higher cost, anticipated

toxicity and adverse effects.

Around 4 billion people around the world use Organic Medicine for their needs. These

medicines are prepared and handled using Organic means. In Organic production there is no use of

chemicals during the entire production, processing and preservation processes. No chemical pesticides,

fertilizers or preservative are used for making these organic medicines or their ingredients. These are

produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and

water to enhance environmental quality for future generations. Organic farming enhances ecological

harmony by

 Promoting biodiversity biological cycles and soil enrichment.

 Utilizing methods that minimize pollution from air, soil and water.

 Optimizing the health of soil, plant, animals and people.

The practice of using herbal medicines based therapy is now a days gaining more attention worldwide in

both human and animal care system.

ADIMMONE

Adimmone is a combination of herbs and ethno – veterinary medicine having multiple beneficial

advantages have been used since long for strengthening body and its immune system and to keep away

or fight against disease over the past few years , vigorous emphasis has been made for enhancing the

growth and production performances in the poultry industry which badly resulted in an adverse effect

on the immunological parameters of poultry thereby damaging the natural defensive mechanism against

various micro organisms including viruses, bacteria, pathogenic fungi, ecto and endoparasites and

various toxins etc. due to development of antibiotic resistance by the bacteria and pathogenic microbes

researchers are now thinking towards immunomodulation. Now a days immune based therapies are

gaining more importance than monovalent approaches which are having limited befits. A part from the

action like treating diseases, control of ecto and endo parasites, fertility enhancement ADIMMONE also

fights against several diseases.Various benefits of Adimmone are as follows;

 Highly concentrate multipurpose herbal feed supplement for immunomodulation.

 No effect of seasonal variation.

 Better adaptation of birds to stress there by minimizing associated losses.

 Increases Non-specific immune response for overall protection against various infections

agents.

 Antioxidants, antibacterial, growth stimulator

 More eggs in layers.

 Higher weight gain broilers.

ANYTOX

Due to emergence of drug resistance microorganisms, side effects of antimicrobials and the harmful

residual toxicity observed in the food chain, there is an increasing trend towards the use of alternative

or complementary medicine for maintenance and therapeutic purposes for treating toxicity and other

liver disorders. ANYTOX is the only remedy for the above problem

BENEFITS:

ANYTOX herbal is an ideal hepatoprotective & hepatoregenerative herbal liver conditioner. It guards the

liver against various toxins, chemical drugs and toxic effect of the feed contaminants & numerous other

conditions where the liver is directly or indirectly at risk.

FEATURES:

It helps in rapid regeneration of liver tissues and cells.

It stimulates sluggish liver parenchyma cells and restores liver functions.

It improves feed metabolism and its utilization, which results in better feed conversion, growth and

productivity.

INDICATIONS:

To enhance growth, weight gain FCR & livability.

To enhance liver metabolism & reduce ill effects of aflatoxins, pesticides, antibiotic, etc.

To maintain proper feed intake, digestion, absorption of nutrients.

DILACOX

Due to vast usage of sulphanilamide, ionophorous antibiotic amprolium or synthetic chemical

compounds for the treatment of Coccidiosis in poultry results in emergence of drug resistant stains and

antibiotic residues in poultry meat posing serious problems to the meat consumers. To overcome this

major threat, safe alternative anti – coccidial herbs is required which can only be fulfilled by the usage of

DILACOX.

SYMPTOMS OF COCCIDIOSIS

1. Passing blood in their poo.

2. Drop in egg production

3. Droopy, hunched, withdrawn chickens with ruffled feather.

4. Not feeding or drinking.

CAUSE

1. Coccidiosis is caused by a parasite coccidia found in contaminated ground and damp litter. It can

be transferred on contaminated boots, clothing, feed sacks, insects and rodents.

2. Poultry are exposed to the parasite via their droppings, dirty drinkers and damp litter in their

housing. Wet areas around drinkers are particular areas of infection.

3. Coccidian can also be found in water that is not kept clean and free of chicken droppings.

4. Young birds and chicks of all kinds are most prone to infection and will quickly die if not treated.

5. Overcrowding and intensive rearing of chickens leads to infection passing quickly throughout

the flock.

6. Infections parasites can live in housing that was previously contaminated for a number of month

and so will infect new birds when they are introduced.

PREVENTION

The disease has a high mortality rate in baby chicks and mortality usually occurs within a week of first

seeing symptoms, so fast treatment is a must. Even if a chick survives, permanent intestinal tissue

damage often occurs. Since a chickens Immune System is centered in the intestine, survivors could have

compromised immune system for life this is why prevention is so important.

1. Keep your litter dry, cocidia proliferate in wet conditions. Stir it weekly and remove any matted

or caked litter soon after it forms.

2. Remove and replace any bedding that is wet.

3. Do not feed chickens feed that contains wheat.

4. Isolate and keep warm any sick chickens so they cannot contaminate others.

5. Add probiotic (MOLPRO) powder to their daily feed.

6. Keep all equipments clean, especially feeders and drinkers.

7. Proper ventilation is absolutely necessary to avoid damp litter conditions.

CURE

Coccidiosis is somewhat hard to cure and if you do have and outbreak it is important to take action

quickly. Hens that do survive will not thrive and may eventually die. The only cure is to administer an

anticoccidial drug and a combination of natural medicine. Coccidiosis can strike any time after the chicks

reach 2 weeks of age. Don’t wait for all the birds in the house to show symptoms before giving a

treatment. At the first signs of this disease get an appropriate drug from your veterinarian.

Despite your best preventive measures, if you do notice any symptoms, collect a fecal sample

coccidiosis can be detected or confirmed by a quick test if diagnosis is confirmed, use only natural

methods . Try to use organic herbal products as much as possible to avoid any side effects caused due to

antibiotics. Our natural herbs are the complete solution for all the problems or diseases occurred in

poultry especially for the treatment of coccidiosis. Use organic herbal products naming DILACOX. This is

the only organic herbal treatment and prevention. Since ancient times, plant and plant parts have an

indispensable source of medicine for indigenous poultry production system. Although modern medical

science has developed to a great extend but still farmer depends on plant parts and herbal remedies for

indigenous poultry health management. Unfortunately, local medical traditions are being lost because

they are communicated orally from generation to generation and are largely undocumented. Very little

has been done to verify and validate information gathered. This unique product naming DILACOX is

based on traditional preparation with the objective of curing coccidiosis for poultry health management

both in small scale and large scale poultry production system. This Herbal and organic treatment should

be followed strictly for best results in treatment of coccidiosis.

CRD PLUS

Chronic Respiratory Disease disease has been reported in chickens. CRD is specific disease caused by one

of the group of organisms known is pleuro pneumonia like organism (PPLO), but more closely defined is

Mycoplasma; the particular organism directly associated with CRD is Alycoplasma gallisepticumwith or

without any secondary complications.

TRANSMISSION:

M. gallisepticum is transmitted through eggs but organisms can also pass from bird to bird through nasal

discharges and through droppings. It can also be transmitted by hands, feet and clothes of attendants of

visitors. Symptoms: Uncomplicated CRD is frequently sub-clinical. When symptoms are present they are

normally milk in nature and include coughing, sneezing, and a nasal discharge. Sinuses are frequently

swollen. On postmortem examination the trachea may be found inflamed and the air sacs thickened

with pus. The condition affecting air sac is often referred as "air sac" disease but it is more pronounced

when other factors including bacteria, complicate the original CRD infection.

The- organism has long incubation period of 10 to 30 days. Therefore only few outbreaks-seen in birds

under 4 weeks old

PREVENTION AND CONTROL:

As uncomplicated CRD is not a major problem today, it may be necessary to protect only against the

probable complicating factors. Increased ventilation without drafts reduces the spread and severity of

CRD. Buying replacement stock from CRD free source greatly reduces the risk of spread. A very high

standard of hygienic condition is of course, supremely important.

TREATMENT:

Apart from above said prevention and control CRD Plus is the only solution for various symptoms of

Chicken suffering from any respiratory problems. As it contains Eucalyptus Oil towards cough, cold,

coryza, influenza, Chronic Bronchitis and respiratory problems. It is also used for

 For the prevention of respiratory problems.

 Assisting recovery from respiratory infections along with specific therapy.

 Curing all type of cough, influenza, chronic bronchitis.

 Promotes growth and weight gain and prevents CRD.

 To relief from symptoms associated with CRD like sniffing, rattling, sneezing, coughing & other

signs of respiratory distress.

DOSAGE:

1ml/ Ltr for Prevention

2ml/ Ltr for cure in initial stage of disease

3ml/ Ltr for cure at chronic stage

MOLPRO

Probiotics are live, non – pathogenic bacteria that contribute to the health and balance of the intestinal

tract. These good bacteria can strengthen the immune system and help chicken digest food more

efficiently, helping them stay healthy and grow better most of us are familiar with the benefits that

bacterial cultures in yogurt contribute to our own digestive health and some farmers give yogurt to their

chickens to impart these some benefits. What many farmers do not know is that chickens are not

equipped to digest most dairy products and would be better served by ingesting beneficial bacterial

cultures alone. Molpro is a combination Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium Bifidus,

Streptococcus faecium, Oligosaccharides, Aspergillus oryzae, Torulopsis fortified with Vitamin C which

are easily digested by chicks

SALIENT FEATURES OF MOLPRO

 Enhanced survival of day old chicks

 Improves FCR

 Faster implantation in gut

 Increases growth rate

 Reduces stress due to antibiotic

 Develops immunity

 Competitively excludes E-Coli and salmonella species

 Improves absorption of nutrients

 Helps to prevent intestinal diseases

 Helps to reduce early chick mortality

RENALFIT :

Renalfit prevents the production or formation of excess uric acid crystals in kidney & renal Tubules it

also prevents accumulation of uric acid crystals in various body organs, soft tissues and joints. It

regulates excretion of uric acid crystals. Renalfit also dissolves small size uric acid crystals which

maintains the urinary flow as a result chances of Ascites reduces. It also cures Gout.

ASCITES

Ascites is an accumulation of noninflammatory transudate in one or more of the peritoneal cavities or

potential spaces. The fluid, which accumulates most frequently in the two ventral hepatic, peritoneal, or

pericardial spaces, may contain yellow protein clots. Ascites may result from increased vascular

hydraulic pressure, vascular damage, increased tissue oncotic pressure, or decreased vascular oncotic

(usually colloidal) pressure, but is most commonly associated with venous hypertension resulting from

right heart failure in response to increased pulmonary resistance.

The most common cause of ascites is increased vascular hydraulic pressure in the venous system, which

is most commonly caused by right ventricular failure (RVF), also associated with hepatic fibrosis. It is well

documented that most cases are caused by a genetic predisposition to pulmonary hypertension, which

progresses to congestive heart failure and terminal ascites in many cases.

GOUT

Avian species excrete nitrogenous wastes as urates bound in colloidal form with mucus in their urine.

Renal dysfunction decreases the clearance of uric acid from the blood, which results in hyperuricemia

with precipitation of insoluble products within the kidney itself or other organs, leading to urate

deposition or urolithiasis (gout). Urate deposits are white and semisolid and must be differentiated from

yellow fibrinous or purulent inflammatory exudates that are secondary to infectious causes, such as

synovitis, peritonitis, perihepatitis, and pericarditis. Many factors may result in gout in poultry such as:-

1. Excess of protein, especially protein of animal origin in the diet of poultry.

2. Deficiency of vitamin A.

3. Disease involving kidneys.

4. Specific diseases such as infectious bursal diease (IBD) or infectious bronchitis (IB) in chicks.

5. Fungal toxins in the feed.

SYMPTOMS

The kidneys appear swollen, molted and grayish in colour due to deposition of urates. The urates are

dilated with white pasty material. In advanced cases whitish chalky deposits are also seen on the serious

membranes and surface of the liver, heart etc.

PREVENTION AND CONTROL:

Removal of the possible cause adequate supply of vitamin A and water are to be adopted suspected

fungal toxicity salt poisoning the feed may be changed

The solution for all the problems for Gout, HPS & Ascites is Renalfit as it:-

1. Optimizes renal functions

2. Prevents damage to the organs.

3. Prevents chances of uric acid crystal deposits

4. Optimizes performance of birds

5. No accumulation of uric acid crystal in various soft tissues and joints.

ADS PLUS

The production of healthy poultry depends on the maintenance of health and hygiene throughout the

entire production system. Some measures can be taken to ensure good water hygiene to prevent

disease at the farm like a footbath should be installed containing disinfectant at the poultry house

entrance and its made compulsory. Poultry sector suffers huge losses due to contamination of feed with

pathogenic bacteria and their related impacts in the birds such as lower weight gain or ever increased

mortality. Hatchery hygiene is recognised as an important factor in healthy poultry production. Poor

standards of hatchery hygiene may lead ultimately to an explosion of pathogenic organisms resulting in

severe economic losses. The environment of a poultry hatchery is very susceptible to contamination by

microorganisms which are believed to adversely affect chick quality and cause embryonic deaths include

E-Coli, Stapthylococci specieces, strephococci and Aspergillus fumigates.

Therefore the development and maintenance of an effective hatchery sanitation programme is essential

for the successful operation of a poultry world for this, we need acidifiers, sanitizers and disinfectants to

clean the water at its best. So that contamination could be abolished from its roots. Also hygiene inhibit

the growth of microorganisms and maintain a desirable level of hatchability of fertile hatchery eggs.

ACIDIFIER

The potential of organic acids is feed preservation protecting feed from microbial and fungal destruction

but also directly in bird nutrition due to its effect on stomach Ph and gut flora is already known for

decades and is proven in uncounted laboratory and field trials. Acidifiers are organic chemicals that

either produce or become acid. The chemicals increase the level of gastric acid in the stomach when

ingested thus decreasing the stomach ph.

DISINFECTANT

The modern domestic animal farm environment furnish an appropriate medium for pathogen

replication one of the most effective methods to reduce level of pathogens includes the application of

proper management and husbandry practices such as regular use of disinfection especially before

introducing a new flock. The choice of disinfectants is critical in establishing a successful sanitation

programme as not all disinfectants are effective against the major pathogens that cause economic

diseases in the poultry and dairy industries. Organic disinfectants target bacteria, fungal compound and

viruses. Therefore disinfectants are efficacious against the wide spectrum of aetiological agents of

economic diseases in animal farm.

SANITIZER

There are number of water conditioning options with water softening, filtration, sequestering and

sanitizing being the most common because bacterial contamination is primary concern in poultry

production water systems can be contaminated either from groundwater sources or from the

environment in the barn. It is possible for colifarm bacteria to enter a well due to poor construction

shallowness of the well or abandoned wells in the area. However the bran environment is by far the

biggest threat for bacterial contamination. Coliform bacteria is easily conveyed to the waterers by the

birds during their daily activities.

Total dissolved solids (TDS) are the sum of all solids that have been dissolved in the water and are

generally expressed in parts per million (ppm). Many have little or no effect on water quality. However

iron and manganese do.

A combination of above said water cleaners is not created yet. But with great efforts and lot of research

this combined product naming ADS Plus (Acidifier, Disinfectant and Sanitizer) works well. ADS Plus is

unique combination of herbs and organic salts as

1. It is revolutionary product which is used in poultry world

2. It is made up of many Organic herbs.

3. It provides not only good sanitation but reduces ph of water

4. It eradicates all infective and reproductive forms of all microorganisms (bacteria, fungi, virus, etc.).

5. It is also used in domestic as well as commercial tanks to purify water in an organic way.

6. It is used as an Organic Disinfectant.

7. It removes more than 50% of disease agents it also makes them less effective.

8. It is most reliable and economical product.

9. Extremely safe for poultry.

10. Continuous use results in a tremendous decline in medication cost

11. It is a super water sanitizer which is used in all types of livestock

CONCLUSION

Deficiencies or disturbances of nutrition cause a variety of diseases and can arise in different ways. The

amount of a particular nutrient in the diet may be insufficient to meet the requirements, the diet may

contain substances that inactivate the nutrient or inhibit its absorption/utilisation, or metabolism may

be upset by the interaction of dietary and environmental factors. Peroxidation of lipids or oxygen free

radical generation in general is a physiological process important for cell metabolism, division and

differentiation and also for the biosynthesis of hormones and prostaglandins. Free radicals generated

through these processes are effectively scavenged by the antioxidant defence system. Uncontrolled lipid

oxidation caused by disturbances of that system may play a crucial role in some important poultry

diseases and toxicoses.

Herbal medicine or herbalism is a time-honored practice of natural medicine that is older than mankind

itself. The practice of using traditional herbal medicine based therapy is nowadays gaining more

attention worldwide in poultry world especially in the areas of nutrition, disease control, genetic

improvement, management and organization of dietary requirements along with the pressure of

increasing demand for poultry products as well as threats of emerging pathogens. So this sector is badly

in need of sustainable therapeutic and production aids especially based on herbs because of the

advantages like, low cost, easy availability, no residual effect, free from the threat of antibiotic

resistance etc. Many herbs have been recorded to be fruitfully used by veterinarians to treat a variety of

disease conditions in animals. The present study discusses the various useful and practical applications

of the rich heritage of herbal wealth for safeguarding poultry health in general, combating infectious as

well as non-infectious diseases caused by microbes and parasites )both ecto-and endo parasites( along

with immunomodulatory actions for countering immunosuppressive diseases. Moreover, highlighting

herb-based poultry growth promoters for increasing production performances use of herbs as

antioxidants and their role in organic egg and meat production is a special attraction of the review that

will draw the attention of the poultry specialists as well as farming community. The information will be

useful to increase poultry production and protect the health of birds in a better way from traditional

ways towards modern perspectives and also would promote and popularize usage of herbs amongst

poultry producers.
