Antimicrobial (as opposed to protozoa and Gram + as Clostridium). It acts as a natural surfactant by destabilizing and breaking down microbial walls and exerting its action similar to ionophores but in a natural way.

Antioxidant (chelator of substances that act as free radicals + inhibition of pro-oxidant enzymes such as xanthine oxidase)

Anti-inflammatory (inhibition of enzymes such as lipo-oxygenase that mediate inflammatory processes)

The use in different species such as bovine, porcine and poultry helps to reduce the loads of Gram + bacteria such as Clostridium perfringes, Streptococcus suis (causing meningitis in pigs) and also protozoa such as Eimeria bovis, Eimeria Tenella and Cryptosporidium, with a mortality of these pathogens of up to 90% (Calvo, M.A 2017)
