.…combats the causes of calf nutritional diarrhea
Scours can be classified into two types, nutritional and infectious. Nutritional scours is usually caused by stress to the calf due to a breakdown in management routines. Nutritional scours often progresses to an infectious scour, which is caused by a high population of pathogens.
Nutritional scours is simply the end-result of an oversupply of lactose in the intestines, caused by milk moving too rapidly out of the abomasum, so it cannot be broken down quickly enough. Pathogens use excess lactose as a nutrient source to increase in numbers. The rate of lactose digestion is then further reduced as a result of damage to the intestinal walls by these pathogens. This damage also causes body fluids to leak into the gut, thereby increasing the rate at which the calf dehydrates.
1.PSYLLOLYTE works in two ways to help calves to overcome their scours.
2.Combat the causes of the scours and upports the health status and defense system of the calf.
PSYLLOLYTE: Products that have a supportive therapy in
Soluble & Insoluble Pectin Fibers Pectin can help a calf’s digestive system function well during the first crucial weeks of life or can help adult cattle with any digestive upsets. In a healthy gut, intestinal flora live in a delicate balance on the intestinal lining of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. But under stressful and/or infectious conditions, the pathogens become over populated and begin to create lesions in the intestinal wall. Cramps and continued production of digestive fluids and enzymes, in the almost empty gut, result in further damage. Toxins cause the intestinal wall to dilate, become fragile, leaky and susceptible to further attack.
PSYLLOLYTE can help normalize digestion and rid the body of infectious pathogens. The astringent properties of citrus pectins, which can be compared to the sourness of lemons, causes the dilated intestinal wall to “pucker up” or contract back to it’s normal state. This greatly improves digestion by reducing the loss of fluids. Soluble pectin fibers swell up to hold fluids and lubricate the intestinal lining which in turn helps restore the intestinal mucus layer that protects the villa. Insoluble pectin fibers have the ability to bind to and inactivate disease causing bacteria, then flush them from the gut. These pectins also form a soothing coat that protects the GI tract, therefore, stimulating epithelial growth and helping to overcome gastrointestinal disorders by slowing the passage of food.
When a calf is stressed and has diarrhea, the villa on the intestinal lining become shortened and, therefore, have less surface area to absorb nutrients. This protective coating enables the villa to repair itself and return back to it’s normal length.
Pectin fibers attach to pathogens and remove them from the body. The pectins also coat the irritated intestinal lining to sooth inflammation and allows proper healing. This process normalizes the GI tract so the animal can again properly absorb nutrients.
Psyllium (Plantago ovata) has a strong ability to create a stable gel, increasing its volume and capture among sand particles stuck in the intestines, as well as absorbing the excess intestinal fluids. Formed in this way gel has a significant impetus to the intestinal wall restoring proper peristaltic movements and accelerate intestinal transit. This does not rubbing the intestinal wall, so use psyllium is especially recommended for sensitive intestines. In addition, psyllium has a positive effect on the growth of good bacteria in the intestines and is a source of dietary fiber.
Lignocelluloses and yeasts. Are used to stabilize digestion and improve the consistency of the stools.
Citric and ascorbic acids. These acids can restore the right pH levels to promote beneficial gut micro flora.
Mineral substances: Potassium chloride, sodium chloride, sodium bicarbonate for the stabilization of fluid and electrolyte balance and maintain the acid-base balance.
Direct Fed Microbials Lactic acid bacteria Lactobacillus, whose job it is beneficial to health effects in the gastrointestinal tract, through immunomodulation and maintaining normal physiological flora. Lactobacillus plantarum is used for example in gastrointestinal inflammation and enterites. A characteristic feature of L. plantarum is the ability arginine catabolism with the production of nitric oxide, which inhibits the growth of other bacteria, regulates the secretion of mucus in the digestive tract, regulates blood circulation and stimulates peristalsis and intestinal immune system.
Lactose By the hydrolysis of lactose are formed the molecule of glucose and galactose. Glucose rapidly completes energy, when galactose is stored in the liver as glycogen, which enables long storage of energy. Lactose contains a lot of energy, where the equal osmotic concentration, provides two times more energy than glucose. Lactose also avoids reducing the production of enzymes lactic.

Mode of Use:
Calves: Prepare a 5% solution of Psyllolyte dissolving 100g of product in 2 lt of warm water (40°C) and stir quickly. Administer within 15-20 minutes. Don’t administer with other electrolytic mixtures. May also be used in smaller doses to help eliminate future problems due to stress, changes in environment, and changes in diet
