EviBaN®

The word nutraceuticals is a combination of the words ‘nutrition’ and ‘pharmaceuticals’. The term refers to a group of substances which are derived from food or feed. These substances have, in addition to their nutritional value, a beneficial effect on health and can be used in the prevention and treatment of (animal) diseases.

We see potential in the application of nutraceuticals to support and improve (animal) health. Especially in the current day and age in which the usage of antimicrobials in livestock is under great pressure, nutraceuticals can show their value. It is of significant importance that the beneficial effects of these substances are evidence based.
