The latest product focusing on improving animal health from the Berlin-based start-up PerformaNat
is in the final phase of development.
After the first product is aimed at preventing hypocalcaemia in dairy cows, the underlying technology has now been successfully transferred to pigs. The aim is to improve the health promotion of piglets by a targeted modulation of ion channels. Weaning poses enormous challenges for piglets, which leads to a sharp drop in performance. The newly developed product supports this difficult phase. The piglets recover more quickly from the growth depression and can move into the next phase of life in a healthier way.
The product is based on the targeted modulation of ion channels in the gastrointestinal tract, which increases the epithelial absorption capacity of certain nutrients. The health-promoting effect has already been proven in extensive laboratory and feeding studies.
