Specific live yeast: LEVUCELL SC

LEVUCELL® SC, Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain CNCM -1077, is the only naturally occurring, rumen-specific active dry yeast probiotic selected to help optimize digestive function. This strain has been carefully selected from thousands of other yeast strains to enhance fiber digestion, maintain proper gut microbiota, and optimize digestive function in dairy and beef ruminants, small ruminants, and horses. A properly functioning digestive tract drives animal productivity, performance, health, and profitability.

Product Description

How it works

S. cerevisiae CNCM I-1077 stimulates the growth and colonization of fiber-digesting microbiota, improving the availability of nutrients captured from the diet to support animal performance.1

In ruminants, the active live yeast found in LEVUCELLL SC decreases the production of lactate-producing bacteria, S. bovis. In response, this stimulates the production of lactate-utilizing bacteria, M. elsdenii and S. ruminantium, to increase rumen pH and decrease the animal’s exposure to Sub Acute Ruminal Acidosis (SARA).2

Why it matters

LEVUCELL increases feed efficiency and diet digestibility, helping to increase performance without increasing dry matter intake.3,4 Producers can rely on LEVUCELL SC for a positive return on investment due to increased performance and production from improved animal health and well-being.
