Two molecules of vitamin A bound together. Beta-carotene is essential to sustain the corpora lutea in the sow. These produce progesterone, which is critical to maintaining the pregnancy. In the follicle, beta-carotene is the essential nutrient rather than vitamin A.
Essential for cell energy, betaine improves gut and liver health as it acts as a methyl donor and osmolyte. Betaine can also increase carnitine levels, which can prevent fatty liver issues.
FOLIC ACID AND VITAMIN B12
Can support early embryo development. Folic acid is important for nervous system development in the embryo. Litter size and embryo survival is also linked to vitamin B12 status of the sow.
Causes an insulin spike that leads to stronger ovulation and more viable egg cells. Flushing increases birth mass, improves litter uniformity, and lowers embryo mortality.
Improves gut microflora, which means better nutrient absorption for the mother and embryos.
