Natural Biologics continues its commitment to solving animal health challenges with its recent introduction of Optishield, an innovative product delivering proven results against lipid-membraned viruses such as porcine epidemic diarrhea virus, porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus and African swine fever virus.
Optishield is a combination of monoglycerides, surfactants and immune-supporting oligosaccharides. New research shows that Optishield's monoglycerides are at least 20 times more potent against the ASF virus than free, or activated, medium-chain fatty acids.
In a recent webinar held in conjunction with the National Hog Farmer's Global Hog Industry Virtual Conference, Charlie Elrod states, "In collaboration with leading scientists around the world, Natural Biologics has identified the combination of monoglycerides that offers the greatest efficacy against lipid-membraned viruses."
Key resources about Optishield
Elrod, president of Natural Biologics, goes on to say, "Through detailed biophysical studies of lipids and viral membranes, Natural Biologics has created an optimal formulation to deliver the most efficient and cost-effective protection in the industry. Not only against ASF, but also against PRRSV, PEDV and pathogenic bacteria like Salmonella."
Natural Biologics also presented research at the 2020 Cornell Nutrition Conference and the 2020 Leman Swine Conference, all supporting the efficacy of the monoglycerides in Optishield. Natural Biologics has also developed a new video explaining the mode of action and chemistry behind this one-of-a-kind formulation.
