For better Calcium Metabolism

The requirement of calcium in modern day poultry is enormous. A major portion of dietary calcium is used in bone formation in chicks, growers and broilers and for eggshell formation in layers. Laying poultry requires more calcium because of calcium carbonate content of eggshell. It is also well documented that as age advances the ability to absorb dietary calcium decreases.
The control of calcium and phosphorus metabolism in the bird is a complex phenomenon involving vitamin D3, Parathormone from the parathyroid gland and calcitonin from the C cells of the thyroid glands.
In recent years it has been observed that inspite of meeting the dietary requirements of calcium in right proportions incidences of perosis, lag weakness, cage layer fatique and thin shelled eggs are on the increase. This could probably be due to the fact that adequate free phosphorus might not be made available in the system for better utilization of calcium.
It is proved that about 80% of body phosphorus is deposited in the skeletal system of the birds. The rest is widely distributed throughout the body and is primarily involved in transfer of biological energy particularly through adenosine triphosphate. Phosphorus excrcises an important function in the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats and salts, also play a very important part in maintaining body pH.
Perosis, cage layer fatigue, lag weakness and thin shelled eggs also occur due to deficiency of choline, manganese, zinc, vitamin B12, folic acid, pyridoxine and pantothenic acid.
