The primary active ingredients in Karbo Caps are mannan and glucan sugars. The mannan sugars contain oligosaccharides, which have proven, in animal field trials, to reduce diarrhea, increase food intake, increase ADG improve activity, and reduce feed costs.
Many pathogenic bacteria, viruses, and toxins in the GI tract, and the whole body, are attracted to and attach themselves to the mannan sugars. Once attached to the sugars, or oligosaccharides, they become inactive, cannot colonize, and are rafted out of the body.
In addition to the above, Karbo Caps contains Calcium Carbonate, Dried Yeast, Brewers Dried Yeast, Dried Saccharomyces Cerevisiae Fermentation Solubles, Yucca Schidigera Extract, Dried Bacillus Subtilis Fermentation Extract, Oligosaccharides, Encapsulated Enzymes, Niacinamide, Kelp and Origanum Essential Oils.
The addition of the proteolytic enzyme CL fortifies the Karbo Caps formula to bind ammonia released during protein and amino acid breakdown. High ammonia levels are toxic to bacteria necessary for complete digestion. The ammonia binding by the CL enzymatic fraction is reversible, and the ammonia release takes place when the level of ammonia present drops to a constant level.
In the digestive tract, the reversible binding of ammonia for amino acid synthesis can create an additional pool of ammonia for amino acid synthesis. This leads to bacterial growth, which creates a more constant and uniform supply of non-ammonia nitrogen with bacterial origin to the small intestine.
