In animal husbandry, the process of oxidation is well known and is considered one of the main causes of disease or premature aging of cells.
Oxidative stress is caused by the interaction of oxygen with other molecules and leads to the appearance of highly reactive compounds, called free radicals. These free radicals react with the surrounding cells causing a chain of damage that can extend to the entire body. Oxidative stress is a frequent consequence of other types of stress: thermal, dietary, and the result of an excessive metabolism during certain key periods of the production cycle.
The addition of antioxidants to animal feed is a widespread strategy in animal nutrition, notably through the addition of vitamin E or selenium to feed rations. Win’Ox supplementation is a natural, effective alternative with high antioxidant power and synergy with other antioxidants such as vitamin E.
