Scientific review of key ingredient in Eberglo for Poultry


Many users of Eberglo have reported that they are using less antibiotic treatments. Eberglo’s (liquid vitamin & mineral supplement) number one ingredient is neutralized (it is not live) Lactobacillus acidophilus (LB), which is a beneficial bacteria commonly found in the digestive tract of animals and humans. How does neutralized LB work?

Studies have shown the therapeutic antibacterial effects of both the live and neutralized Lactobacillus acidophilus (LB) culture. Several types of antibacterial action have been identified as direct actions by LB against gastrointestinal bacteria, or towards the abilities of the disease to develop and spread.

This particular class of harmful bacteria cause significant structural injuries of the cellular lining of the intestinal tract. This usually causes acute and persistent diarrhea.

Antibiotic-like activity. Secreted molecules present in Lactobacillus LB culture exert a killing activity against major dangerous gastrointestinal bacteria such as Salmonella enterica serovartyphimurium (S. typhimurium), Listeria monocytogenes, Shigella flexneri, Yersinia enterocolitica, enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli, enteropathogenic E. coli and diffusely adhering E. coli (DAEC) and gastritis-associated Helicobacter pylori.

In addition, bactericidal activity of secreted molecules from LB against common bacteria associated with inflammation, tumours, and ulcers has been reported. This bactericidal activity resembles the structural changes of dying bacteria observed after antibiotic treatment. (1)

The health of an animal’s stomach and intestinal tract is absolutely essential to its overall health.
