Application of tangerine peel extract in animal breeding
Effects of tangerine peel extract on the digestive system:
In the in vitro environment to simulate the digestive environment of a pig gastrointestinal tract, the effect of adding Chinese herbal tangerine peel extract on the digestibility of crude protein in the feed was observed. The results showed that adding tangerine peel extract could improve protein digestibility. The effect of the 1.0% group was better. The possible mechanism of tangerine peel extract promoting digestion is that the volatile oil in the tangerine peel can enhance the activity of pepsin and pancreatin, thereby improving the digestibility of crude protein in feed.
Hypoglycemic and lipid-lowering effects of tangerine peel extract
Under normal circumstances, the decomposition and anabolism of sugar in animals maintain a dynamic balance, so the blood glucose concentration is relatively constant. Since blood glucose circulates with the blood, it is closely related to the cells of various tissues in the whole body, so the change of blood glucose level can often reflect the situation of glucose metabolism in the body, so the determination of blood glucose content is of great significance for judging whether the metabolism is normal or not.
Antioxidant effect of tangerine peel extract
The free radicals in animals have a strong oxidative ability and lively properties, which are very harmful to the body. The reason is that they can denature various macromolecular components after interacting with lipid peroxides in the body. The main components of tangerine peel extract flavonoids can scavenge free radicals and protect cell membranes from oxidative damage caused by free radicals.
