Hey Mr. Kuttappan
Is there any evidence of occurrence of wb genetic or breed?

At what age do you recommend your 2 products of inorganic minerals and synthetic antioxidants?

Dr. Hussain,

Thank you for your interest in our work. Based on the information we have so far, woody breast and white striping appear across various modern broiler breeds and regions of the world. But, we are continuing to study the myopathies for further understanding the actual etiology of the condition.

We recommend using our two-pronged nutritional strategy, which is a combination of our organic trace minerals and effective antioxidants. These two ingredients help to address both sides of the myopathies: reduce the oxidative damage in muscle and improve tissue repair (as well as maintain high structural integrity in the muscle). To get the optimal benefit from the program, we would recommend using the products through the grow-out period.

I hope my comments answer your questions, and please feel free to get back to me if you need any additional information.
