Reduces the threat of endotoxins and mycotoxins to boost performance

EndoBan® FT

EndoBan FT is a combination product of our broad range mycotoxin binder range Free-Tox and our dedicated endotoxin reducer EndoBan. EndoBan FT simultaneously combats mycotoxins and endotoxins by eliminating them from the gastrointestinal tract before they can exert their toxic effects.

Disarm the endotoxins

 

Endotoxins

Endotoxins are toxic molecules from bacterial origin. The most well-known endotoxins are lipopolysaccharides (LPS), which are a component of the cell wall of Gram-negative bacteria. LPS molecules are released into the environment when bacteria multiply or when their cell membranes rupture through bacterial lysis. The gastrointestinal tract is the most important source of endotoxins. Once endotoxins pass the intestinal barrier, they trigger an inflammatory response, that will consume energy and nutrients meant for growth and production. Hence, an efficient gut barrier is essential to prevent the translocation of endotoxins. However, several external factors (e.g. heat stress, mycotoxins, pathogens, feed transition) are known to increase gut permeability, promoting leakage of endotoxins. EndoBan is a unique feed additive that combines different strategies to reduce the leakage of endotoxins.

Mycotoxins

Mycotoxins are secondary metabolites produced by molds growing on crops in the field or during storage under suboptimal conditions. Mycotoxins are mainly produced when the mold is subjected to stress conditions. The most important mycotoxins relevant in animal nutrition are trichothecenes (DON and T-2 toxin), fumonisins (FUM), ochratoxin A (OTA), zearalenone, ergot alkaloids and aflatoxins. After ingestion, mycotoxins exert toxic effects mainly on the gastrointestinal tract, the immune and reproductive systems and the liver and kidneys, resulting in a decreased animal performance. Our Free-Tox range offers effective mycotoxin binders, designed to reduce the risks associated with mycotoxins.

Mycotoxins and endotoxins are often present together in production animals and can enhance each other’s negative effects on animal health and performance. It is important to protect production animals against the risks of both toxins. Endoban FT combats the negative effects of endotoxins and mycotoxins simultaneously.
