    Both essential oil and organic acid have been demonstrated to improve growth performance and gut health of broilers. With their different mechanism of action, it is hypothesized that combining them could provide additional benefits.

Thank you for your comment, Mangalmurti. The Novus essential oil blend product, NEXT ENHANCE® 150, is micro-encapsulated with a patented technology. Its physical properties, such as particle size, angle of repose, and compressibility, allow it to mix well at the low doses. To address concerns of some customers, we have a premix of this product that is 10X diluted with dosage increased 10X.
