LEX-C: Give your poultry the immunity to fight stress and diseases.



  • Ascorbic acid or Vitamin C is a vitamin reported to have beneficial effects in poultry exposed to environmental or nutritional stress (Mirabdollbaghi et al, 2006)


  • Protection against heat stress this summer season
    • Layers are susceptible to heat stress due to their high metabolic heat production caused by increasing egg formation (Blem, 2000)
    • Heat stress adversely influences feed intake, reproductive and laying performance, economical traits and decrease overall health of laying hens
    • Vitamin C (200 g/MT in feed) given to layers under heat stress conditions (38 °C ± 1; 55–65 % RH) increased production traits (Attia, 2016)


  • Increase egg production and egg weight in this period of low market supply of eggs
    • In a study by Khan and Sardar (2005), results indicated that the mean egg production, egg weight and egg shell thickness improved (P<0.05) for layers supplemented with Vitamin C


  • Build up immunity in this challenging condition
    • A study by Lohakare, et. al in 2015, Infectious bursal disease (IBD) and Newcastle disease (ND) titers measured post-vaccination showed significantly higher IBD titers in the group given 200 ppm Vitamin C
    • Supplementation of Vitamin C at 200 ppm is beneficial for improving the performance and immunity and for exploiting the full genetic potential of the commercial broilers




  • All-natural antioxidant to counter oxidative stress
  • Immune booster
  • Performance enhancer
  • Thermostable
