The ACTIVATE® nutritional feed acid family of products contains a blend of organic acids and methionine hydroxy analogue (HMTBa), a highly bioavailable source of methionine. The combination of organic acids in ACTIVATE effectively reduces the pH of the gastrointestinal tract, promotes the establishment of a desirable and more balanced intestinal flora and aids in digestion, providing more nutrients from feed and improving performance.

Gut health is essential to overall animal health and well-being because the gut is the primary area of nutrient digestion and absorption. When it is not healthy and functioning at an optimal level, animals are less efficient at absorbing nutrients.

Today's production processes present several challenges to gut health. Animals are exposed to pathogenic bacteria at multiple points throughout the production process. They also experience stress from changes in feed and environment. That often contributes to reduced feed intake, which increases the potential of disease taking hold.
