Mechanism of positive influence of Natuzyme in poultry feeding
Natuzyme, supplied with mixed fodder in the body of the bird, begins to show its activity immediately after ingestion of the food in the oral cavity and in the goiter. In slightly acidic with fluctuations up to a slightly alkaline reaction of the goiter contents, Natuzyme amylase is significantly activated. As a result, the work of enzymes on the cleavage of starchy polysaccharides to dextrin and glucose is enhanced. As a result of a 1.5-3 hour treatment in goiter, a significant portion of the starch disintegrates, and in parallel with this, the accessibility of the substrate to proteolytic enzymes improves when the goiter chyme enters the glandular and then into the muscular stomach. Thus, accelerated and more significant starch degradation involving Natuzyme amylases becomes a prerequisite for more successful work of proteolytic enzymes in the stomach of the bird.
In the stomach, the proteins of the fermented food swell under the action of hydrochloric acid, are exposed to proteolytic enzymes that break down their quaternary and tertiary structure. Fats are emulsified and partially digested to glycerol and fatty acids.
In the lumen of the small intestine, starting with the duodenum, the acidity is restored to the level of 5.6 and then increases as the chyme moves to the large intestine to 7.5. These pH intervals fully activate all the components of Natuzyme and include its amylase, xylanase, protease and phytase. As a result of their work, the proteins are completely cleaved to amino acids, starch dextrins to glucose, non-starch polysaccharides to glucose and phytic compounds to ionic phosphorus. In the small intestine, absorption of the cleavage products occurs.
In the blind processes of the large intestine the pH increases further, which causes the activation of Natuzyme cellulases, which ensures an increase in the degree of cleavage of the pulp of the feed.
In the thick intestine, Natuzyme provides enhanced structure of the chyme with the release of unbound water. As a result, water is actively absorbed in the rectum, and the consistency of the bird's litter is normalized.
