AB Vista announced that it has expanded its portfolio with an anti-inflammatory product designed to enhance gut integrity.

An innovative new natural anti-inflammatory product designed to enhance gut integrity and improve the performance of production animals is the latest addition to AB Vista’s expanding product portfolio, underlining its commitment to providing cutting-edge gut health solutions to the industry to reduce reliance on antibiotics.

Progres® is a patented natural resin acids product that supports gut integrity, helping producers to mitigate the impact of different stress factors and improve animal productivity and resilience.

Growing health and environmental concerns about antimicrobial resistance, have had a significant impact on the industry. As the sector adjusts to the demands of animal production with less medication, farmers are searching for alternative nutritional strategies to improve their livestock’s health and wellbeing whilst optimizing performance and farm profitability.

Gut health is central to this. A healthy gastrointestinal system is a prerequisite for optimal animal performance and wellbeing. Whatever our approach to gut health, we will aim for a good condition of intestinal epithelium/villi and optimal composition of microbiota. Achieving this will result in effective digestion and absorption of nutrients, as well as improved animal resilience and wellbeing. This in turn means more efficient feed use and less need for medication.



That is why AB Vista is focused on developing its gut health product portfolio to support its customers in their journey towards more sustainable animal production. The acquisition of Progres®, a product originally developed by Finnish biosciences company Hankkija – is another step towards this direction.

“Progres® is an exciting natural product based on strong research and scientific background that supports a more sustainable approach to animal production, so it fits well with our whole ethos at AB Vista,” explains AB Vista Managing Director Juan Ignacio Fernandez.

“Adding Progres® to our portfolio expands the support we can provide nutritionists, veterinarians and production managers, looking for strategies and production programmes that deliver improved gut health, nutritional optimisation, and food safety and security. This acquisition also demonstrates our commitment to growing our offer into the wider additives market,” he adds.
