Vitamin C

Just like in human nutrition, animal diets require a set of nutrients necessary for the proper functioning of the body. One of the segments of these ingredients are vitamins, classified as micronutrients. vitamins can increase animal life expectancy, productivity and meat quality. They can also help lower stress levels, improve gut health, and boost the immune system, thereby reducing the need for antibiotics. Vitamin C is essential for the body due to its numerous functions. Most farm animals synthesize vitamin C in their bodies. This vitamin is stored in organs such as the adrenal glands, pancreas, skeletal muscles, brain and liver. Vitamin is obtained from typical feed mixes, but its synthesis is reduced under stressful conditions.

 

Application

It is also known to be involved in wound healing and to facilitate adaptation to stress. . Vitamin C increases the absorption of iron from the gastrointestinal tract (1). It stimulates the inactivation of various toxic substances. It is one of the most important food antioxidants that protect cells from the harmful effects of reactive oxygen species.

In a pig's diet, insufficient levels of vitamin C can cause weakness, fatigue and bone pain. In poultry, vitamin C supplementation is recommended to increase growth, egg production and fertility.
