Nor-Guard® OMV Concentrate is a premixture consisting of 100 % natural flavouring compounds. The product helps increase the palatability of the feed and thereby the appetite and feed intake of the animals. This may contribute to an increased weight gain.
The product contains a combination of active constituents from parts of the following plants:
- Olive leaves (Olea europaea)
- Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis)
- Grapes (Vitis vinifera)
Nor-Guard® OMV Concentrate contains a unique combination of water and fat soluble antioxidants. This provides the product with allround effects, and it is therefore well suited for all types of production animals. The product is highly concentrated, wherefore only low dosage rates are required.
Nor-Guard® OMV Concentrate’s content of fat- and water-soluble antioxidants provides the product with a strong antioxidative capacity. There is evidence that there is a synergism between water-soluble and lipid-soluble antioxidants (Salami et al. 2016), and that combinations of water- and fat-soluble antioxidants are more efficient in ameliorating the detrimental effects caused by heat stress (Sahin et al. 2003; Jena et al. 2013).
Nor-Guard® OMV Concentrate has anORAC-value of 5100 µmol TE/g. This compares favourably with the ORAC-value of a typical Vitamin E 50% adsorbate, which – when the product is formulated on the basis of dl-alfa-tocopherol – is below 585 µmol TE/g.
According to literature, antioxidants of the types present in Nor-Guard OMV® Concentrate have been proven beneficial to both humans and animals (Rice-Evans et.al. 1997, Albarracin et al, 2012).
