The Effectiveness of Gano-met® on the growth performance of broiler

Published: August 27, 2021
By: Life Rainbow Biotech
Poultry is a homothermal animal, and its body covers with feathers to increase its cold resistance. However, Taiwan is an island that lies in the tropic of cancer, and the general climate is marine tropical. During summer, this mechanism is adverse to heat dissipation and causes heat stress.
Heat stress is a familiar stress effect that will affect animals’ growth performance, productivity, and health. Heat stress affects livestock production results in increased demand for net energy for maintenance and reduced energy for growth and production.
Therefore it is crucial to help the animal dealing with heat stress. To overcome the sickness caused by heat stress, Life Rainbow Biotech has developed a liquid type nutrition supplement – Gano-met® for broiler and layer to exceed the unwell state and provide essential nutrition instantly. Gano-met® contains extracted Ganoderma lucidum, rich in active compounds such as required amino acid, polysaccharides, and triterpenoids.
Ganoderma lucidum is an edible traditional medicine mushroom, also known as “Lingzhi”(Chinese) and “Reishi” (Japan), which have been used in traditional Chinese medicine as an immune booster herb for more than 4000 years. Ganoderma lucidum consists of more than 400 biologically active compounds such as polysaccharides and triterpenoids.
Gano-met® was proven through field trials and showed its effectiveness of heat stress relief and promoted the growth performance. The farm trial period was conducted from April to May (2020) and located in the north of Taiwan. The average temperatures of these two months were 31°C and 32°C, respectively. Total 200,000 AA broilers were tested in this experiment. Farm scales with 100,000 birds as a batch also treat as a group. The control group (100,000 birds) was conducted during April whereas Gano-met® group (100,000 birds) conduct during May. Both groups were fed with commercial diet throughout 5-week experimental period. Starting from trial second week, the Gano-met® group was applied with Gano-met® (1L/ton) into drinking water, 3 days per week till the experimental period ends. After 5 weeks, all broilers sold to the market.

Compared with Control group, Gano-met® group increases Avg. selling weight by 80 grams and improves feed efficiency by 4.8%. Heat stress is a significant economic threat to poultry industries, especially during summer and affecting the growth performance. Although the environmental variations are unable to control, we still can provide suitable precautions to protect the animals, such as providing nutrition aspects, including Gano-met®.

Thanks, could you send a COA with the specific composition and standardized analytical numbers, especially then the polysaccharides and the respective analytical method. Since you mentioned presence of amino acids, also the profile is welcome to enter into the feed formulation (based on digestible amino acids).

Have these more than 400 biological active compound being identified and able to analyse in your product ? This would be essential to be able to standardize the product and assure the eventual effect is stable. Nature is not perfect and not stable, so conditions change, also composition of natural products. It would be hard to believe that all those 400 compounds have a beneficial effect, since they are there for one reason. Probably to protect the fungus from intruders, so some components might be even very toxic. If we look at literature about Ganoderma lucidum and applications in human domain, we see many WARNINGS on undesired side effects (bleedings, irritation, etc). Maybe a better approach would be to define and isolate the "positive" compounds only in this Ganoderma fungus.

Dear Dr. Kotaiah Talapaneni, Thank you for your message. Gano-met ® is a natural liquid immune enhancer without antibiotics, containing Ganoderma lucidum fermented extract. Ganoderma lucidum consists of more than 400 biologically active compounds such as polysaccharides and triterpenoids. Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharides can block or slow down the oxidation reaction to protect the integrity of the cell membrane. So in all our animal experiments animals have better performance.

The live birds know how th take care of themselves when they feel thirsty. Our job is to provide ampe quantity of clean water well accessible. They dont need medicine. Probably some body needs to sell

Bird has no heat loosing mechanism except panting. The out side temperature should be less than what bird is experiencing. If it is 7 to 8C , the panting will help. No medicine in the world can mitigate heat stress. The farmer also will get in to heat stress by paying the medicine bills.

Thanks Jenny for your reply, but in research claims data is never fragile. Rather it is always in exact number & calculations. So one must be careful for claims of significant differences claimed.

Good article but unable to understand survival rate more than 100%.

I am Dr Md Beplob Hossain from Bangladesh. Our Bangladesh is a hot climatic country. Here 42°c temperature rises in summer season. At this time huge poultry face to heat stress conditions & occurs heat stroke. Huge mortality occurs by heat stroke. Otherwise, your Gano-met® products how much recovered at this heat stroke problem. Thanks
