Shrimp have only an innate, so-called primitive immune system. This means that it can not "learn" with time and must defend itself again and again against the same "attackers". So if an infection with a certain opponent is over, it can attack again, the immune system of the shrimp does not recognize him and the fight starts again.
The most common cases of bacterial infections in shrimps in aquariums are caused by non-pathogenic bacteria, that is, they are not pathogenic bacteria, but normal bacteria that live in every aquarium and every living thing. Unfortunately, these too can quickly lead to a problem, namely, when the immune system weakened and / or not quickly becomes active. A sleepy "sentry" or a lethargic "fighting force" can be decisive for the fight.
So if you New shrimp / snails / fish in an aquarium, in which there are already shrimps, then often no "diseases" are transmitted, but simply normal bacterial strains, but may be unknown to the already living in the aquarium shrimp. Thus, the new bacteria can quickly settle in the shrimp, multiply rapidly and if the immune system is not fit enough for us, unfortunately, often lead to deaths ...
In short, without an immune system, a shrimp is just a piece of meat that wants to be decomposed by bacteria. Alone the immune system prevents this, so it is so important to strengthen the immune system of the shrimp, so that it can ward off optimal and keep the shrimp healthy. That alone is his job to be faster and stronger than opponents can spread. ShrimpFit supports it in this task, the ingredients act as immune boosters in various ways.
Advantages of GlasGarten ShrimpFit
- High binding force and inactivation of toxins (toxins) and pathogens by bacteriostatic effect
- Activation and multiplication of defense scavenger cells
- Formation of a protective membrane on the intestinal mucosa (infection barrier)
- Reduced loss rates for infections
Beta-1,3-1,6-glucans are structures that are recognized by the immune system as quasi-pathogens. Without being a pathogen, they trigger immune activation but do not cause any disease symptoms. The immune system is thus made fit.
Beta-glucans are recognized by special receptors of phagocytes (macrophages) and immediately absorbed. Thus, the phagocytes activate the formation of additional cells for the immune defense, which can effectively protect the body against new pathogens in the blood and lymphatic system and reduce the reaction time for a defense.
As soluble fiber in the yeast hydrolyzate used, the beta-glucans are fermented by the intestinal flora to short-chain fatty acids such as acetate, butyrate and propionate. The consequent reduction in pH prevents in particular the incorrect colonization of the large intestine by pathogenic germs. Short-chain fatty acids are important regulators for a healthy metabolism, butyrate is the main source of energy for the intestinal mucosal cells and has an anti-inflammatory effect.
Mannan oligosaccharides promote by their prebiotic effect the probiotic bacteria in the animals and a positive composition of the intestinal flora.
Minerals and chitin
The contained minerals and chitin support the structure of the exoskeleton and counteract moulting problems. Each moult is a great show of strength for the shrimp organism, and especially during this time, when all the forces are focused on moulting, the shrimp are weakened and easily vulnerable. Unnecessarily long moulting phases put the shrimp in additional stress, which lowers the immune defenses, so it is so important that the moulting is smooth and fast.
Feeding recommendation (approx. 100 liters each)
First aid (immediate aid) may help prevent major damage, as the immune systems of the still uninjured or already infected shrimp are activated faster and more efficiently. At the same time, pathogens and toxins are bound by GlasGarten ShrimpFit and released from the intestine.
