Title: Effect Of Cinnamon And Ginger Compared To Doxystin (Antimicrobial Drug) On Serum Lipid Profile In Broiler Chicks
Author: Abdelhameed, Hind
Abstract: The aim of this study was to assess the effect of the medicinal plants cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum) and ginger (Zingiber officinale), as natural feed additives in comparison to (Doxystin) ) “Doxycycline HCl 50 mg and Colistin sulfate” , known antimicrobial growth promoter) on the serum lipid profile of broiler chicks. One hundred and sixty (one day-old) broiler chicks were assigned to four groups of the same mean weight, each with four replicates of ten chicks. The first group was used as control group and fed broilers basal diet, the second group fed the basal diet supplemented with the (Doxystin) as 0.5%, the third and fourth groups fed basal diet mixed with C. verum, and Z. officinale as 2% of the diet respectively. The experimental diets affected all parameters measured follows, total cholesterol and serum (low dencity lipoprotein) LDL-C concentration was significantly (P<0.05) decreased in groups received spices diet compared to Doxystin and control groups. Whereas, the (high dencity lipoprotein) HDL-C concentration showed significantly (P<0.05) lower levels in the two spice treated groups compared to the control group only, and the antibiotic treated animals showed similar level to that observed in spice treated groups. Triacylglycerols and the VLDL-C fraction showed clearly reduced values in all treated groups compared to the control group, though the difference was not significant but it was more pronounced in the spice treated groups, as they reported half the level of the control group. It can be concluded that inclusion of C. verum and Z. officinale as feed additives acted as natural hypocholesterolemic agents in broiler chicks in particular and reduced blood lipids in general.
