KEEGO HARBOR, MI / ACCESSWIRE / February 6, 2020 / ZIVO Bioscience, Inc. (OTCQB:ZIVO) a biotech/agtech R&D company engaged in the commercialization of nutritional products derived from its proprietary algal cultures, announces today that several poultry gut health studies conducted in the last two quarters of 2019 have yielded statistically significant and repeatedly successful results across five (5) different research studies performed at three (3) independent research facilities. After receiving and analyzing reports from contract research organizations and university researchers, the consensus findings were then further reviewed by independent, widely renowned poultry health scientist Dr. Thomas Jeffers to confirm their potential benefit to the poultry industry.
Based on these most recent findings, the Company intends to file additional patent applications to protect research and processes relating to the promotion of poultry gut health with its natural vitamin A, carotenoid and fiber-rich feed ingredient product. These consensus findings are yet another meaningful step in a decade-long quest by the Company to develop novel products that take on significant, global animal and human health/nutrition issues.
The most significant of these recent findings confirm the value and utility of the Company's natural products to positively affect poultry performance while providing poultry producers with flexibility in how a product may be applied or integrated into a feeding program. Of particular note are results from three (3) studies which demonstrate that the ZIVO algal biomass product enhances the performance of broilers when co-administered with coccidia vaccine. Other studies have confirmed the nutritional benefit of ZIVO products when provided to broilers in either feed or drinking water, providing further flexibility of use on the part of the producer. This may be especially important during heat waves when feed is sometimes restricted, and more water is made available to the birds. Finally, analysis of intestinal bacteria of broilers fed rations with and without ZIVO's product in feed suggest that the ingredient facilitates positive changes in the gut microbiome.
The Company's poultry & swine feed ingredient marketing partner NutriQuest will offer these findings to its customers and distributors around the world, along with samples for testing. NutriQuest, a global innovator in animal nutrition, has scheduled additional research and validation of the ZIVO algal biomass as a feed ingredient in a European poultry diet and growing conditions. The trial is slated for late winter/early spring 2020. The Company has already shipped product for this study.
