Stress reduction by drinking water

Dr. Eckel Animal Nutrition

Dr. Eckel Animal Nutrition GmbH has developed an innovative anti-stress additive, combining magnesium and plant extracts. This can reduce stress in poultry flocks, for example, via the drinker.

The water-soluble anti-stress product MagPhyt WS has been specially developed for the drinker and promises MagPhyt WS fastest stress reduction and improved resistance based on a combination of proven plant extracts, highly bioavailable magnesium sources and vitamin C. During stressful and challenging times, poultry producers in particular need immediate relief to calm their birds and prevent stress symptoms from spreading. There is usually no time for a feed change.

Rapid effect

According to Dr. Eckel, the new product offers the decisive "more" thanks to its unique triple complex: it is more than magnesium, more than vitamin C, more than rapid stress reduction. Because with the combination of proven plant extracts, optimally bioavailable magnesium sources and vitamin C, and the innovative formula for rapid solubility, MagPhyt WS strengthens poultry flocks against stressful situations and calms nervous animals quickly and reliably. This allows livestock farmers to act at the first signs of restlessness in the house and take timely countermeasures before stress affects animal well-being and performance. This means fewer injuries, better carcass quality and fewer animal losses.

More than just magnesium

The premium manufacturer from Germany relies on two particularly high-quality sources of magnesium for MagPhyt WS: Mg citrate and Mg glycinate. Vitamin C and selected plant extracts are also added. According to Dr. Eckel, the various ingredients in a complex dissolve without leaving residues. As a fine powder, MagPhyt WS is added directly to the water tank, dissolves immediately and distributes evenly in the water. There is no need to replace the feed.

Anne Möddel, Senior Technical Sales Manager and Product Manager at Dr. Eckel, is personally enthusiastic about the new MagPhyt WS: "MagPhyt WS has a holistic effect on the animal. In the drinking water you can smell it immediately, it smells intensively of lavender. In the organism it works highly effectively and incredibly fast, already within one day. You can literally watch how the animals become calmer." This is also confirmed by the company's initial practical experience with selected turkey and chicken farms. MagPhyt WS is available immediately on the European market, in numerous Asian countries, and in other regions.
