ONLINE CONFERENCE: Digestive Ecology, Dysbiosis and Pronutrients
ONLINE CONFERENCE: Digestive Ecology, Dysbiosis and Pronutrients is organized by the Peruvian Academy of Veterinary Sciences
The event is organized by the Peruvian Academy of Veterinary Sciences
On July 6, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. (Peru time) Dr. Jaime Borrell Valls, Dr. Anna Tesouro Rodríguez and Dr. David Díez Arias, will give a virtual conference at the Peruvian Academy of Veterinary Sciences (APCV).
The talk, entitled “Digestive ecology, Dysbiosis and Pronutrients“, will deal with the balance between the microorganisms that transit or colonize the digestive system, temporarily or permanently, the causes or factors that lead to their imbalance and that trigger dysbiosis and, finally, the pronutrients, natural molecules that stimulate organic functionality to physiological levels, in order to prevent these imbalances.
Dr. Gordon Rosen, in his initial statistical studies, observed distortions in the results of tests in which he used chemical additives. That is, he obtained results that could not be attributed to these chemical substances, and he defined pronutrients by their origin, microbial, mineral, and natural. Years later, once those of microbial origin, already described as probiotics; and those of mineral origin, defined as mineral correctors, were discarded; Dr. Borrell classified natural pronutrients by their function, so 10 types of pronutrients were defined that stimulate the functioning of different body organs.
This allowed the use of these molecules from vegetable origin to design new products for use in animal feed. In essence, they are botanical molecules, derived from shikimic acid, that only vegetables (bacteria, algae, plants and fungi) “manufacture” in their cells, following what is called the shikimic route. Animals do not know how to reproduce these cells by themselves, but they do know how to use them in their physiological processes, which are optimized, with positive effects on animal welfare and the prevention of dysbiosis.
