Karbo Combo is our most popular product. Karbo Combo takes the active ingredients of Epic II CL and Karbo Flour and combined them into one easy to use form: The Karbo Combo Pellet.
The primary active ingredients in the Karbo formula are "Mannan" and "Glucan" sugars. The Mannan sugars contain oligosaccharides. Many pathogenic bacteria, viruses, and toxins in the GI tract (and throughout the body as a whole) are attracted to and attach onto the Mannan sugars. Once attached to the sugars (oligosaccharides) they become inactive, cannot colonize, and are rafted out of the body.
Karbo Combo also has encapsulated Natural Vitamins, Amino Acids, Enzymes and Glyco Components. The encapsulated enzymes play multiple roles in the breakdown of plant and animal feed stuffs.
Adding these enzymes to the animal's feeds releases previously unavailable starches, lignins, proteins and minerals. The animal uses these formerly missing nutrients to fortify its complex immune system. Karbo Combo makes the feed more palatable and digestion becomes more complete. More complete digestion decreases the needed amount of feed for body maintenance, so rate of average daily gain is increased.
Karbo Combo also has a profound effect on the immune system - it increases immune system response - therefore a healthier animal.
Bacteria have lectins (proteins or glycoproteins) on their surface. These lectins recognize specific sugars on the cell wall and allow the bacteria to attach to cells. (Figure A)
Strong evidence now exists that these pathogens preferentially bind with the mannan oligosaccharides (Karbo Formula) added to the feed, giving greatly reduced attachment to the host cell walls. (Figure B) Because the Karbo Formula is not degraded by digestive enzymes, it passes through the body with the pathogens attached.
Normal GOOD bacteria in the intestine, and other parts of the body, are NOT bound by the Mannan. Therefore, they generally increase in numbers; promoting better health.
In addition to the above, Karbo Combo contains Natural Diatomaceous Earth, Calcium Carbonate (CaCo3), Calcium Oxide (CaO), Zinc Oxide (ZnO), and Citrus Bio Flavins and Encapsulated Enzymes. The above combination of natural ingredients has proven very beneficial in stimulating the immune system and providing a healthy gut to ward off attacks by bacteria, toxins, viruses and aflotoxins.
An addition of the proteolytic enzyme CL fortifies the Karbo Combo to bind ammonia released during protein and amino acid breakdown. High ammonia levels are toxic to bacteria necessary for complete digestion. The ammonia binding by the CL enzymatic fraction is reversible and the ammonia release takes place when the level of ammonia present drops to a constant level. In the digestive tract the reversible binding of ammonia for amino acid synthesis can create an additional "pool" of ammonia for amino acid synthesis for bacterial protein growth, creating a more constant and uniform supply of non-ammonia nitrogen of bacterial origin to the small intestine.
The use of Karbo Combo will help you to exploit the genetic potential of your livestock by managing the disease assaults on your animals.
