Nutracid InteStim

Supports the immune system to optimize gut health

Nutracid InteStim

Nutracid Intestim is an innovative product for pigs, that supports growth and improves feed conversion by modulating the immune system, stimulating villi growth and increasing absorption capacity.

the first line of defense

Gut health has a significant effect on pig performance.  The gut has three fundamental roles to fulfil. Firstly,  the gut must ensure an effective digestion and absorption of dietary nutrients. Secondly, as the gut is in constant interaction with the environment, it must provide an effective barrier and thirdly an effective immune response against pathogenic bacteria and toxic substances. Throughout their life cycle, production animals are exposed to several stress factors that negatively affect the digestion and absorption of nutrients and increase gut permeability. Therefore, maintenance of an optimal gut functionality is crucial for animal health and performance.

Nutracid InteStim is a slow-release feed ingredient, consisting of a blend of calcium butyrate and nucleotides embedded in a matrix of vegetable triglycerides. These components have a positive effect on intestinal morphology and intestinal defense mechanisms.

Indeed, butyric acid is a source of energy for the intestinal cells while exogenous nucleotides stimulate intestinal cell growth, resulting in longer villi an thereby an increased absorption capacity. Additionally, butyric acid and nucleotides have beneficial effects in maintaining an intact intestinal barrier, limiting undesirable translocation of bacteria and toxins and activation of inflammatory reactions. In addition to their effects on intestinal integrity, butyric acid and nucleotides are able to modulate the immune system.
