CLOSTAT® contains a proprietary, patented strain of Bacillus subtilis, PB6, a unique, naturally occurring, spore-forming microorganism. Kemin has identified and selected the specific strain of PB6 isolated from the gut of a healthy chicken surviving a necrotic enteritis outbreak. PB6 secretes an active substance that helps maintain the balance of microflora in the intestinal tract of livestock, poultry and equine.
Kemin has tested PB6 in various species of animals to show its benefits in the inhibition of pathogens. By inhibiting pathogens in the intestinal tract of livestock and poultry, PB6 can help improve gut health and overall efficiency.
