Abstract


Efficient liver functioning ensures effective metabolism, circulation, detoxification, excretion, defense and haemopoiesis. Objective of the experimental trial was to study the effect of polyherbal liver tonic Xlivpro premix (M/S Ayurvet Limited, India) on growth and performance in broilers. Day old chicks (n=60) were divided into 2 identical groups (T0 and T 1) randomly. Basal diets (starter and finisher) were given to broiler chicks as per standard NRC requirements as well as artificial lighting was provided for 12 hrs daily. Group T0 , control group provided with standard basal diet without any liver tonic premix and in group T1 basal diet supplemented with herbal liver tonic Xlivpro premix (250 g/tonne of feed from 0-35 days). Statistical analysis of results showed a significant (P>0.05) increase in live weight (g) and live weight gain (g) in herbal liver tonic Xlivpro premix supplemented T1 group (1885.66 and 1842.17) in comparison to control T0 group (1814.01 and 1771.39). At the end of experiment herbal liver tonic Xlivpro premix supplemented T1 group showed improved FCR in comparison of control untreated group T0. Dressing percentage was significantly improved in herbal liver tonic Xlivpro premix supplemented group T1 in comparison to untreated group T0. Plasma concentration of total protein (g/dl) and enzymes (AST/ALT) (U/L) was found to be non-significantly (P>0.05) different between the both groups, though numerically high in Xlivpro premix supplemented group. The trial investigation revealed better results in herbal liver tonic Xlivpro premix supplemented group in comparison to the untreated group. The product was found to be safe for usage.
