PIGRED is a High technology innovation product developed by UAB Spain, to make skin and meat redder when using in the feed.
Fe-Porphyrins and Erythropoietin (EPO)
Heme B group of hemoglobin. An iron (Fe) atom in the middle is shown in red, complexed to four
interior nitrogen atoms shown in blue
Make the pig skin and lean red.
EPO can induce Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) produce more Red blood cells (RBCs), also called erythrocytes. And hemoglobin present in the red blood cells makes skin and lean red. Because hemoglobin can bind oxygen in the red blood cells.
Improve immunity of young animals
After red blood cells immune adhesion bacteria, viruses and other organisms’ immune adhesion, which not only can be generated by peroxidase (pod) of their direct killing effect, but also can contribute to the phagocytosis of phagocytes to them. Erythrocyte immune function, therefore, can be seen as one of the factors of the anti-infection immunity of bacteria, viruses and other organisms after immune adhesion.
