Avilact – Pro is a potent rumen alkaliser which neutralizes acids in the rumen. Avilact – Pro offers sustained and long-lasting buffering action and maintains pH at desirable levels in the rumen.
In a study conducted at the ACNS Avilact-Pro, as compared to Sodium bicarbonate, exhibited 5X longer lasting buffering at low pH.

Avilact-Pro is a combination of carefully selected Sodium salt of carbonic acid, Oxide of magnesium and specialised alkalizing agents, in a defined ratio
Ensures sustained and long-lasting buffering action
Avilact – Pro’s action mechanism involves the interplay of three different kinds of alkalizing salts:
i. Sodium Salt of Carbonic Acid
Dietary sodium bicarbonate acts as a buffer much like endogenous sodium bicarbonate found in saliva. Sodium bicarbonate, with a pKa value of 6.25 functions in an optimal pH range of 6.2 to 6.5.
Sodium bicarbonate acts in two ways.
ii. Oxide of Magnesium
Magnesium oxide is a slow-releasing alkalizing agent. Slow solubility in water enables long lasting activity against sub-acute acidosis. Oxide of Magnesium functions synergistically with Sodium bicarbonate in sub-acute and acute ruminal acidosis.
iii. Specialised Alkalizing Agents
Avilact-Pro contains specialised alkalizing agents which possess a powerful buffering capacity due to their high potential to neutralize acids when the pH goes down to between 4.5 and 5.0 thereby effectively addressing acute acidosis.
