Uses and Proprerties

Usos y Propiedades

Maslina markets a complete range of products based on active ingredients from the olive tree, which can be applied both separately and in combination in the field of animal nutrition. Their beneficial effects on the organism translate into an improvement in production parameters. 

As a result of the knowledge and experience accumulated in recent years, Maslina has developed proprietary protocols that allow the production of functional food, from the enrichment of the animals’ diet with their products.

As a result of the knowledge and experience accumulated in recent years, Maslina has developed a series of protocols that allow the production of functional foods, from the enrichment of the animals’ diet with their products.

usos y propiedades

For this purpose, a facultative label called Himacol® has been developed, which guarantees that the foods that incorporate it come from animals whose diets have been enriched with natural extracts from the olive tree, providing the final product the differentiation and added value that enable its valorization in the market.

Properties of Terpenes and Phenols of the Olive Tree

    • Increased intestinal transcellular active transport (Liehr, Martin & Mereu, Alessandro & Pastor, Jose & Quintela, Jose Carlos & Staats, Stefanie & Rimbach, Gerald & Ipharraguerre, Ignacio. (2017). Olive oil bioactives protect pigs against experimentally-induced chronic inflammation independently of alterations in gut microbiota. PLoS ONE. 12. e0174239. 10.1371/journal.pone.0174239.)
    • Increase in the mass of the intestinal epithelium and the integrity of the epithelium. Prevention of colonization and damage to the epithelium by pathogens

    • Local and systemic attenuation of the inflammatory response and the tissue damage associated with it (rostoll cangiano, Lautaro & Zenobi, Marcos & Nelson, Corwin & Ipharraguerre, Ignacio & Dilorenzo, Nicolas. (2019). A bioactive extract from Olea europaea protects newly weaned beef heifers against experimentally induced chronic inflammation1. Journal of Animal Science. 97. 4349-4361. 10.1093/jas/skz285.)

    • Reduction of the enzymatic activity of the serine protease group:
      * Inhibition of the parasitization of microorganisms of the Apicomplexa filum (coccidia, genus Cryptosporidium and genus Neospora)
      (García-Granados López de Hierro, Andrés; Martínez Rodríguez, Antonio; Parra Sánchez, Andrés; Rivas Sánchez, Francisco; Osuna Carrillo De Albornoz, Antonio; Mascaró Lazcano, María Carmen; Rodríguez Cabezas, María Nieves; Kalifa, Latifa.

    • Hyperplastic effect of the intestinal epithelium.
