Abstract:
The experiment was aimed to study the efficacy of supplementation of Withania somnifera, selenium and vitamin E in layer’s diet on blood and egg lipid profile of layers. A total of thirty six healthy layers of twenty eight weeks age were randomly divided into 3 groups with twelve birds in each group. An experiment was conducted in layers with different feed formulations; standard diet, standard diet with Withania somnifera and standard diet with Withania somnifera, selenium, Vitamin E. Blood and egg lipid profile was estimated in each group of birds on day 0, 28, 56 and 84 of the experiment. The reduction in concentration of cholesterol in egg yolk of layers supplemented with Withania somnifera alone and combination of Withania somnifera, Selenium and Vitamin E was calculated to be 7.69 and 12.50 percent, respectively. Similarly, reduction in egg yolk triglycerides was also observed with 3.39 and 5.87 percent, respectively in Withania somnifera and combination of Withania somnifera, Selenium and Vitamin E treated group. Supplementation of indigenous herb Withania somnifera and antioxidants viz. Selenium and Vitamin E in the feed of layers significantly reduced the concentration of cholesterol and triglycerides in egg yolk. may be considered equivalent when being used as an adjuvant in mucoadhesive drug delivery systems.
