Effective Against Gram-Positive Bacteria and Protozoa


Decreases Free Radicals and Helps Cellular Growth



Down-Regulates EP-3 Receptors

Developed after years of research, Essential is a unique combination of functional oils that is a natural feed ingredient used to replace antibiotics from animal and aquaculture feeds. It improves animal productivity while lowering overall costs.

Oligo Essential is a synergistic mix of functional oils with antimicrobial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties. Inclusion of Oligo Essential is suitable for all livestock including, but not limited to: poultry, swine, and ruminants.

Oligo Essential acts as a naturally occurring ionophore with two modes of action by disrupting both monovalent and divalent ions. Having two modes of action not only makes the product extremely effective against gram-positive bacteria and protozoa, but also makes resistance development nearly impossible.

The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects of Oligo Essential help to improve epithelial cell regeneration and improves intestinal recovery. This increases nutrient uptake efficiency and reallocates energy towards growth, instead of maintenance and repair.

Oligo Essential complies with all international standards for feed ingredients and the manufacturer, Oligo Basics Agroindustrial Ltda. is FAMI-QS certified.


Protozoa / CoccidiaProtozoa / Coccidia

Each coccidia species has a specific host species and no coccidiostat is effective in eliminating all species of cocci. To make matters worse, there are limited reliable antibiotic alternatives when it comes to coccidiostats.
Oligo Essential is effective in eliminating Eimeria acervulina and Eimeria tenella in the poultry gastrointestinal tract, thereby helping to alleviate coccidiosis. As cocci “opens the door” to further infection and possible necrotic enteritis (NE), Oligo Essential has been shown to effectively treat acute NE and help to prevent its onset.


Gram PositiveGram-Positive

Gram-positive bacteria in poultry, swine, and ruminants, can cause clinical and sub-clinical digestive problems resulting in large financial losses. Necrotic enteritis in poultry is caused by Necrotic enteritis in poultry is caused by Clostridium Perfringens.

Diarrhea in swine can be partly attributed to Clostridium spp.

Acidosis in ruminants is caused by the lactic acid production of Streptococcus Bovis.

All of these bacteria, plus many others, are effectively eliminated through the antimicrobial activity of Oligo Essential

Enteric Health and Recovery

Antibiotic treatments fall short when it comes to enteric recovery. Pharmaceuticals can be effective in killing the problematic bacteria, but the damage that the bacteria has caused still leaves the animal vulnerable to subsequent infection.The multifunctional properties in Oligo Essential include antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities. These additional effects aid in repairing damaged epithelial cells and allow the reallocation of energy to growth, instead of immunity and recovery.
