Butyric (C4), Caprylic (C8), Capric (C10) and Lauric acid (C12) are synergic combination of monoglycerides of fatty acids in NovoVital. These monoglycerides are pH independent. They may providing a broader action against intestinal pathogens (protozoa, fungi, bacteria and some fat enveloped viruses up to a certain extent). NovoVital prompts beneficial gut flora development and enhances beneficial population and promotes villiae growth. It also helps to improve feed intake due to characteristic of monoglycerides that are less corrosive than acids. To sum up, NovoVital helps to increase:
- intestinal integrity,
- nutrient absorption,
- weight gain and feed efficiency
- Group homogeneity and meat quality
All mentioned beneficial results of using NovoVital are related to each other. Thus, improving one could lead to achieve others easier!
A new study shows positive effects of Novovital on 7 different gram-negative Bactria in aqua, namely in fishes. Aeromonas salmonicida, Photobacterium damselae subsp. Piscicida, Tenacibaculum maritimum, Vibrio anguillarum, Yersinia ruckeri, Aeromonas veronii and Aeromonas hydrophila were examined. These bacteria are important due to negative effect they could have on different fish species. Trout, salmon, tench, perch, catfish, pike, turbot and halibut fish are susceptible to Aeromonas salmonicid bactria causing Furunclosis. Bream, seabass, turbot and sole fish are susceptible to Photobacterium damselae subsp. which can damage kidney and spleen causing Pasteurellosis. Turbot, bream, salmon, olive flounder, seabass and sole fish are susceptible to Tenacibaculum maritimum which could cause Tenacibaculosis. Salmon, trout, bream, eel, catfish, tilapia and mullet are very susceptible to Vibrio anguillarum causing vibriosis. Yersinia ruckeri bacterium could affect Rainbow trouts and all salmonids in general causing Red mouth disease. Aeromonas veronii is especially exist in Asian and Australian waters. This bacterium which is zoonosis causing Epizootic ulcerative syndrome. Aeromonas hydrophila is another critical zoonosis bacterium which is studied in this study.
Results demonstrated that NovoVital is highly active against most of the strains tested in 6 different examined dosage (1%, 0.5%, 0.25%, 0.125%, 0.06%, 0.03%). Expectedly highest dose (0.1%) has best result for all bacteria. Under this dosage, Yersinia ruckeri was not killed but it did not also grow (MIC). 0.5% dosage was not effective (+) on the mentioned bacteria and minimum bacterial concentration (MBC) was observed for Aeromonas veronii and Aeromonas hydrophila. It is concluded that NovoVital is highly active to Aeromonas salmonicida, Photobacterium damselae subsp. Piscicida, Tenacibaculum maritimum and Vibrio anguillarum in different dosages and Tenacibaculum maritimum is the most susceptible bacterium to NovoVital in all different used dosages. These results are promising for what concerns the activity in vivo.
