    Poultry given antioxidants diet maintain the structural integrity of cells by stabilizing highly reactive free radicals [10]. Therefore, the main role of vitamin E is to overwhelm the production of ROS at their initial phase and maintain immune system of chickens. Figure 4:Mechanism of fertility in poultry birds. Vitamin E and immune system.   Vitamin C is used all along the adrenal cascade and acts as an antioxidant within the adrenal cortex itself. The more stressed you are, the more vitamin C your body uses up. Unlike most animals, humans cannot make their own vitamin C and have limited capacity to store it, so vitamin C must be consumed regularly.

    Poultry in commercial settings are exposed to a range of stressors. A growing body of information clearly indicates that excess ROS/RNS production and oxidative stress are major detrimental consequences of the most common commercial stressors in poultry production. During evolution, antioxidant defence systems were developed in poultry to survive in an oxygenated atmosphere.   Vitamin C supplementation helps with the mobilisation of minerals from the bones and increases plasma calcium levels for improved eggshell formation. Using a vitamin and electrolyte supplement can increase body weight, improve energy levels and help alleviate the effects of heat stress in poultry. Source:

      Vitamin C helps to control the body temperature & Plasma corticosterone concentration hence decreases stress level of birds. It also improves shell quality due to role of formation shell organic matrix. It also protects immune system. Additional supplementation of – Gms per kg diet is required during hot climate. Abstract. Commercial poultry production is associated with various stresses decreasing productive and reproductive performance of layers. A growing body of evidence indicates that most of stresses in poultry production at the cellular level are associated with oxidative stress due to excess of free radical production or inadequate antioxidant protection.

Comprehensive information on the role of vitamin C in combating stress factors in poultry with the view of exploring its potentials for future research undertaking. Information compiled in this review were obtained from search engines such as Elsevier, Pubmed. Poultry can make vitamin C, so there is no dietary requirement established for this vitamin.

Vitamin C supplementation is useful when birds are in stress. Vitamin A is required for normal growth, reproduction and maintenance of epithelial cells in good condition (skin and the linings of the digestive, reproductive, and respiratory tracts). This review was aimed at providing comprehensive information on the role of vitamin C in combating stress factors in poultry with the view of exploring its potentials for future research undertaking.

Vitamin C: Stress Buster A study finds in addition to benefits related to the common cold and cancer, vitamin C helps reduce both the physical and psychological effects of stress on people.

Poultry synthesize vitamin C in their kidneys and can meet the needs, thus supplementation is considered unnecessary in normal environmental conditions.

But few birds live in superlative conditions, free from stressors such as heat or cold, handling etc which may. Hence, vitamin E (mg/kg), vitamin C (mg/kg) and vitamin A (IU/kg) are recommended for alleviating summer stress in poultry.

To learn more about alleviating stress in poultry, read: Stress, disease, nutritional solutions in poultry production. In breeding poultry, vitamin C can effectively moderate warm temperature declines in egg production and eggshell quality in laying hens, and sperm production in breeder males.

Other practices Delay activity in the barn such as moving of birds or litter conditioning. Provide shade for pastured poultry or decrease sun exposure in the barn. Pakistan is an agro-livestock based economy with a poultry share of 55% of the total agricultural GDP (21%).

The environment in Pakistan remains hot and humid during July to August, which renders the survival of poultry critical during these months, as birds are more susceptible to changing environments than other domestic animals.

Vitamin C is a vital nutrient for health. It helps form and maintain bones, skin, and blood vessels. It occurs naturally in some foods, especially, fruit and vegetables.

Vitamin C is needed for the strength of connective tissues that may affect teeth, bones, and joints and tissue health. Collagen makes up about one-third of total body protein of which vitamin C plays an essential role. Vitamin C antioxidant actions help. Effects of dietary vitamin C, vitamin E, and alpha-lipoic acid supplementation on the antioxidant defense system and immune-related gene expression in broilers exposed to oxidative stress by dexamethasone.

Poult Sci. () – /ps/pex [Google Scholar]. Low vitamin C concentrations can also occur in patients with end-stage renal disease on chronic hemodialysis.

Vitamin C and Health. Due to its function as an antioxidant and its role in immune function, vitamin C has been promoted as a means to help.

A vitamin K deficiency in poultry may be related to low dietary levels of the vitamin, low levels in the maternal diet, lack of intestinal synthesis, extent of coprophagy, or the presence of sulfur drugs and other feed additives in the diet.

Chicks with coccidiosis can have severe damage to their intestinal wall and can bleed excessively. Vitamin C can be given in the feed or in water to help regulate the body temperatures of birds (Khattak et al., ; Attia et al., ).

The addition of vitamin C to drinking water or feed helps to reduce corticosterone levels during heat stress (Farooqi et al., ; Attia et al., ). The antioxidant system includes enzymatic antioxidants as SOD, GPX, (CAT (B), and non-enzymatic antioxidants like vitamin E, vitamin A, Selenium, etc.

The role of antioxidants in poultry. A fourteenth and fifteenth vitamin (vitamin C and carnitine), should now be considered in overall vitamin supplementation programs. Vitamin C is synthesized by poultry and is, accordingly, not considered a required dietary nutrient.

However, there is evidence of a favorable response to vitamin C by birds under stress (Pardue, ; Nockels, ). Poultry can make vitamin C, so there is no dietary requirement established for this vitamin. Vitamin C supplementation, however, has been shown to be useful when birds are stressed.

Some vitamins are produced by microorganisms in the digestive tract. Vitamin D can be. Ergocalciferol (vitamin D 2) is used with an efficiency of of vitamin D 3 in poultry.

One IU of vitamin E is equivalent to 1 mg of synthetic dl -α-tocopherol acetate. Vitamin E requirements vary with type and level of fat in the diet, the levels of selenium and trace minerals, and the presence or absence of other antioxidants.

An adequate supply of vitamins and minerals is key for good poultry nutrition, strengthening the bird’s defenses against harmful pathogens. Proper nutrients in adequate amounts improve poultry production. Nutrition becomes increasingly important after periods of disease or stress when the immune system is weakened and energy levels are at their lowest.

Ascorbic acid is a vitamin reported to have beneficial effects in poultry exposed to environmental or nutritional stress (Thornton and Moreng, ; Pardue and Thaxton, ; Krautmann, ). Eggshell quality is one factor showing improvement, especially at high ambient temperatures, although the responses in individual experiments have been.

Vitamin B12 along with folic acid plays a crucial role in maintaining a healthy immune system. Sources: fish, meat, poultry, eggs, milk, and milk products.

Vitamin C.Vitamin C not only helps cells fight oxidative stress but also helps clean up this cellular mess by producing specialised cells to mount an immune response.

“So the role of vitamin C here is a bit like cleaning up the football ground after the game,” University of Newcastle nutritionist and dietician Prof Clare Collins wrote in The.Psychology Today: "Vitamin C: Stress Buster," Ap The American Institute of Stress: "Effects of Stress."
