Allicin is a naturally occurring active substance extracted from garlic and has a wide range of biological activities and health functions. The use of allicin in feed additives can bring the following benefits:

1.Antimicrobial effect: Allicin has broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity, which can inhibit the growth and reproduction of a wide range of bacteria, fungi and parasites, and reduce the risk of animals being infected by these pathogens.

2.Immunomodulation: Allicin promotes the functioning of the animal's immune system and strengthens the body's ability to fight disease. It can increase the number and activity of white blood cells, improve antibody production and enhance the effects of cellular and humoral immunity.

3.Promote growth: Allicin can promote the growth and development of animals. It can improve feed utilization and increase the absorption and utilization of nutrients by animals, thus promoting weight gain and muscle growth.

4.antioxidant activity: Allicin has significant antioxidant activity that scavenges free radicals in the body and reduces the effects of oxidative stress on animal health. This helps to increase the antioxidant capacity of animals, reduce inflammatory responses and protect cells from oxidative damage.

5.Promotes Healthy Digestion: Allicin promotes the functioning of the animal's digestive system by increasing the secretion of gastric juices and digestive enzymes, improving feed digestion and absorption. It also reduces harmful flora in the gastrointestinal tract and maintains intestinal microecological balance.

Now that we've seen its efficacy, let's take a look at how to use it

Allicin can be used in feed additives in the following ways:

1.Direct addition: allicin is added directly to the feed. This can be in liquid form or powder form of allicin. Allicin is mixed evenly into the feed at the recommended addition rate according to the formulation of the feed and the needs of the animal.

2.Coating treatment: Allicin is applied to the surface of the feed particles. This can be done by spraying or dipping. The coating treatment provides a slow release of allicin and prolongs its release in the digestive tract.

3.Premix addition: Allicin is premixed with other feed additives to form a premix before being added to the feed. This method ensures that allicin is evenly mixed with other additives and facilitates subsequent feed processing and use.
