Also, it has antimicrobial properties, which enhance & improve gut functions, and promote growth.
Phytogenics feed is mainly extracted from herbs, spices and other non-flowing plants. These are used for production of animal food and nutrition. Herbs and species have various medicinal properties such as antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial. Feed phytogenics are majorly used to improve animal health and feed quality. The addition of feed phytogenics to animal nutrition’s promotes healthy digestion in livestock owing to its anti-inflammatory, antimicrobials, antioxidants, and immunostimulants properties. Furthermore, the ban on the use of certain antibiotics as growth promoters is likely to drive the market.

Phytogenics feed additives are mostly used in poultry and animal diets because it is easy to digest and helps in various metabolic processes among animals.
Photogenic feed offers various benefits such as increased feed intake, digestion stimulation, immunity support and bone & muscle development among animals. Also, additives play a very important role in enhancing the quality of the feed for livestock. The technological advancement in poultry industry and the improvement of feed nutrition should accelerate the incorporation of feed additives in animal feed. Use of feed additives in the poultry sector, as a growth promoter is beneficial for improvement of production and prevention of diseases. However, this large utilization has led to the increasing resistance of pathogens to antibiotics and the accumulation of antibiotic residues in animal products and in the environment.
European market from poultry was valued over 59.5 million in 2019. Increasing demand for organic and safe poultry meat, will boost the growth for market.
