New nutritional solution in heat stress management. Ganoderma lucidum: An ally to fight heat stress

In many regions, animal production under hot conditions is a major challenge and is expected to become more common in the future. During heat stress, several strategies are used to dissipate excess heat. When high temperatures, water consumption increases, and feed intake decreases (thus reducing nutrient absorption).In order to dissipate heat, livestock will increase the heart and breathing rate. Metabolism is severely affected and usually leads to oxidative stress.
Poultry is a homothermal animal, and its whole body is covered with feathers to increase its resistance to cold. In summer, this mechanism is not conducive to heat dissipation and causes heat stress. Heat stress is a common stress effect that affects the growth performance, productivity, and health of animals. Heat stress affects livestock production, resulting in an increase in the net energy required for maintenance and a decrease in the energy required for growth and production. Therefore, it is important to help animals dealing with heat stress.
In order to overcome the sickness caused by heat stress, Life Rainbow Biotech has developed a liquid supplement-Gano-met® for broilers and laying hens to overcome discomfort and provide essential nutrients. Ganoderma lucidum is an edible traditional medicinal mushroom, an oriental fungus, has a long history of use for promoting health and longevity in China, Japan, and other Asian countries. It is a large, dark mushroom with a glossy exterior and a woody texture. (Figure 1) Ganoderma lucidum is composed of more than 400 biologically active compounds. Ganoderma lucidum is a kind of precious Chinese medicine. It has been used as a tonic and to prevent and treat various diseases in our country for a long time. Ganoderma contains a variety of biologically active compounds, such as polysaccharides, triterpenes, and glycoproteins, which have the effect of promoting health. Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharide is the main physiologically active compound of this precious mushroom.

Gano-met® has been proven in field trials to show its effectiveness in relieving heat stress and promoting growth. Heat stress is a major economic threat to the poultry industry, especially in summer, and affects growth performance. Although environmental changes cannot be controlled, we can still provide appropriate preventive measures to protect animals, such as providing liquid supplement Gano-met®.

Good product! I would have also love to assess the effectiveness of this product under a hot humid tropical environment. This is because the ability of poultry species to loose heat to their external environment in humid climates is usually compromised. Thanks
