Gastrointestinal Functionality

Effective gastrointestinal (GIT) functionality is becoming increasingly important in animal nutrition and health, where it plays a key role in profitable and sustainable production. Addressing the complex mechanisms and interactions that regulate gastrointestinal function requires a multidisciplinary approach that encompasses a balanced and tailored diet, effective structure and function of the gastrointestinal barrier, host interaction with the gastrointestinal microbiota, digestion and absorption of feed, animal welfare and immune status.

Scientific evidence now suggests that previously unobserved factors can potentially revolutionize the current approach to nutritional strategies, allowing farm animals to become more resilient to environmental and physiological challenges while optimizing their gastrointestinal nutrition and health.
