Grasslands: a source of secondary metabolites for livestock health.

08:00 EDT 13th July 2017 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Grasslands: a source of secondary metabolites for livestock health."

Grassland constitutes a huge reservoir of secondary metabolites (e.g., phenolic compounds, alkaloids, saponins, terpenoids, carotenoids, and quinones). This phytococktail may positively and/or negatively affect livestock health and production, depending on numerous factors such as animal species and intake. This resource can be considered a low-cost, environmentally friendly way to contribute to the improvement of livestock health. Better knowledge and management of these animal health resources as well as understanding of their mode of action constitute a new multidisciplinary research field. This review uses examples to describe the impact of grassland secondary metabolites on animal health in husbandry. A particular focus is antioxidant activities due to the oxidative stress induced by farming practices. The first part of this review presents different health promoting or toxic grassland secondary metabolites, and the second part concerns assay methods to evaluate their presence and content.
