Abstract:
The effect of essential oil from Zingiber officinale on hemato-biochemical parameters was assessed in a total of ninety six, day old Vencobb 430 broiler chicks which were randomly assigned to one of the three dietary treatments representing: basal diet with no supplements as control (T1), basal diet + essential oil from Z. officinale at 100 mg/kg (T2) and basal diet + essential oil from Z. officinale at 200 mg/kg (T3), each treatment having four replicates, with eight chicks each. The antioxidant activity of essential oil was analyzed by DPPH assay. The feeding trial was conducted for 42 days and the blood was collected on the 42nd day and subjected to hemato-biochemical assay. The complete blood count and HDL level were statistically similar (p˃0.05) among treatments while the total cholesterol and LDL level were significantly lower (0.05) in T2 (97.25 and 32.75 mg/dL) and T3 (98.50 and 34.00 mg/dL) than T1 (136.00 and 48.25 mg/dL).
