Development of AMR
Antimicrobial products are used to kill or significantly slow the growth of disease causing microbes
Under certain conditions, selective pressure drives evolution of mechanism that allows some microbes to resist antimicrobial activity
Resistant microbes are able to survive antimicrobial treatment and continue to replicate
AMR microbes pass resistance genes to other microbes via vertical/horizontal transfer
What is antimicrobial resistance (AMR)?
Anti-microbial resistance happens when germs like bacteria, fungi, viruses, etc., develop the ability to defeat the drugs designed to kill them. It is a natural phenomenon that happens naturally in microorganisms, but injudicious use of antibiotics accelerates this process and makes the available antibiotics ineffective.
Why a matter of worry?
In the year 2019, approximately 5 million human deaths were associated by bacterial antimicrobial resistance worldwide, including 1.3 million human deaths attributed to bacterial AMR and is forecasted to reach 10 million by 2050.
Why Animal production systems are criticized?
Impact of AMR by 2050 would be wide ranging
28 million people projects to fall into poverty because of AMR
Up to 7.5% decline in global livestock production
Up to 3.8% decline in global export
Up to 3 trillion USD global increase in healthcare cost
What are the impacts of AMR on human health?
Increased human morbidity and mortality
Reduced efficacy of related antibiotics used in human
Increased human health care cost
Increased potential carriage and dissemination
Facilitated emergence of resistance in human pathogens
What Livestock and poultry sector can do?
At personal level how can we reduce the risk of AMR?
Phytogenics to the rescue!
The search for efficacious alternative growth promoters (AGPs) continues alike in all major meat-producing countries where antibiotics have been banned and where such restrictions are still waiting to be imposed.
Phytogenics are one of the promising classes having with stood the test of time for the longest, exerting consistent results across disparate geographies and even species.
Phytogenics work at all possible levels through overlapping mechanisms and do not have pinpoint mechanisms of action as some other classes of antibiotic replacers do. Phytogenics work best when offered regularly over a period of time and they offer a multitude of benefits that other classes do not:
How it reduces the dependency on antibiotics:
Herbs as antimicrobial

Our stride towards Curbing AMR!
Throughout our evolution, the importance of natural products for medicine and health has been enormous and use of herbs in animal health and well being cannot be denied. The past few years have fuelled interest in the use of natural compounds for overall health of the animals due to their safety and efficacy.
Ayurvet’s products are used since last three decades to produce value added animal products with reduced usage of antibiotics.
A combination of ingredient herbs, extracts and essential oils are in best synergy, and are validated in different geographical location for its efficacy in biological convertors. There are a wide range of solutions that can effectively replace antibiotic growth promoters and bring about desirable beneficial effects in livestock and poultry.
