PhytoStar® | Phytogenic products
Gives a natural boost to your production efficiency
The PhytoStar brand covers a range of products based on synergistic blends of plant-derived compounds carefully selected for improving the animals’ fitness by alleviating oxidative stress and strengthening their natural defense.
The value of natural essence
Production animals are continuously exposed to various stress factors such as heat stress, pathogens, weaning, toxins, unbalanced diet, … . Oxidative stress is the process that plays a central role in all these situations. It causes damage to cells and tissue and induces inflammation. Countering this inflammation together with the repair of damaged tissue requires energy, meaning less energy is available for production, resulting in economic losses for farmers.
PhytoStar products contain a blend of carefully selected natural ingredients found in plants such as cinnamon, garlic, oregano, rosemary or thyme. Through stimulation of antioxidant production and modulation of the immune system, PhytoStar strengthens the animals’ health and production efficiency.

Heat stress in poultry explained
Heat stress is one of the most important environmental stressors challenging poultry production worldwide as it has detrimental consequences on growth and production, leading to significant economic losses.
Impact of heat stress on poultry
In poultry, heat stress has undesirable effects on gut health, nutrient digestion and absorption, the immune system and increases the oxidative stress levels. Read more about how heat stress results in a decrease in productivity and increase in economic losses for producers.
