Alquernat Nebsui, a key product for intestinal health

Both health and production performance are closely related to animal nutrition. One of the mechanisms of nutrient absorption in the intestine is through the paracellular pathway, where tight junctions between enterocytes have an essential role. These binding complexes are in charge of regulating the selective passage of molecules through the intercellular spaces between enterocytes, allowing the passage of nutrients, but avoiding the passage of toxics, antigens or other harmful substances.
