To combat this disease, high investments are made in conventional products such as vaccines, synthetic coccidiostats, ionophores and probiotics which, due to their continuous use, create greater resistance and in the long run become inefficient, requiring more and more applications and expenses with antibiotics.
On the other hand, the worldwide concern for chemical-free foods is growing to the point that some markets are already banning foods treated with antibiotics.
It is in this context that Norponin®XO₂ was created, extracting from nature the solution to fight coccidiosis in a natural and more efficient way. It uses the association of saponins studied among 2,000 different plants, selecting the species that have the greatest potential for synergistic effects, efficacy, availability, safety and cost.
Saponins are activated by plant enzymes in response to tissue damage or pathogen attack and have antimicrobial activity. The higher the sterol level, the better the saponins act on protozoa.
