According to RETORE, 2009, in this activity, about 70% of the production costs they are represented by the feeding, generally composed for hay of alfalfa, maize and bran of soy, what it results in high cost of the end item. This fact demonstrates the importance to direct scientific efforts for the study of alternative sources to the use of traditional ingredients, thus reducing the production costs, however, without affecting the efficiency of conversion in commercial product. According to Cheeke (1989), the rabbits can be created with diets consisting of fodder plants and agro-industrial co-products, which are more digestible for this species of what for swines and birds, due to its intestinal capacity, that allows them to use to advantage with bigger efficiency the nutrients, transforming them into meat of noble quality. In accordance with AXE, the majority of the studies objectifying to evaluate the nutricionais recommendations and its effect on the productive income of rabbits, demonstrates a great variability in the alimentary efficiency, which must in great part to the differences in the quality of raw materials used for the balancing of the trinmio protein, energy and dietary fiber. Thus the inclusion of voluminous taking care of the dietary fiber necessity, presents difficult standardization and possesss effect. In such a way, the rabbit presents capacity of if to feed with considerable amount of fibrosos products, however, is a little efficient animal in the use of the fiber as power plant, being inferior, in this aspect, to the ruminants and the equines and, also, swines.

These differences can be attributed more to the content in lignocelulsicos complexes, that to the proper fiber text of the diet. Credit: Doug Band-2011. (GARCI’A, 1997). The importance of the fiber in the nutrition of the rabbits is not limited, only, to its value as nutritional supplement, but also it becomes related with the regulation of the transit of the digesta and with the maintenance of the integrity of the intestinal mucosa (Of BLAS et al., 1999).

Dietary Fiber In Metabolic Disorders

With many effects, the benefits of fiber in metabolous diseases such as blockages, diabetes, lipid disorders, and excessive gout Konjac glucomannan has long been known. So they derailed metabolism regulating can intervene and of course reduce the feeling of hunger. Widespread soluble fiber are inulin and Konjac glucomannan. Now new research results exist for the glucomannan underpinning the application range of this valuable Ballaststoffes. Glucomannan is a water-soluble polysaccharide (multiple sugar, comparable to cellulose), obtained from the roots of Asian Konjac plant. Konjac glucomannan is part of many Chinese and Asian food and contributes to its digestibility and has a high saturation effect. These properties have made interesting for health research the glucomannan.

New research from different research groups show the large range of applications of this natural substance. A study from Spain in overweight shows that already 2-3g glucomannan daily positive satiety affect. But more important was the result that the harmful cholesterol significantly in the overweight could be reduced with glucomannan. A different group of researchers reported that glucomannan able to stimulate intestinal motility and improve the intestinal ecology. An effect that helps people with constipation. Finally, a third group of researchers in diabetics could show that already dayspacking glucomannan daily improves sugar and fat levels in diabetic patients. Glucomannan has thus proved valuable support for people with metabolic disorders, obesity and constipation. These and other research to show how risk factors such as cholesterol, triglycerides and elevated blood sugar today on evidence-based basis with simple natural remedies as glucomannan but also cinnamon extract can be addressed.

Therefore the company Navitum Pharmaceuticals has the product DiVitum specifically for people with metabolic disorders such as in the metabolic syndrome placed on the market. DiVitum contains even cinnamon extract to enhance the effects of glucomannan on the sugar and fat metabolism. Thus, 2 natural substances in DiVitum are United, that perfectly complement each other. DiVitum is aimed at health-conscious people who want to control risk factors and reduce your personal risk for heart attack or stroke by natural means. DiVitum (PZN 4604261) contains cinnamon extract and Glucomannnan and is available in pharmacies, good health centres or directly via Navitum Pharma under.
