ECOPIGLET Promoting digestive welfare in piglets

Ecopiglet is a mineral dietary supplement to promote digestive welfare in piglets

Ecopiglet prepares piglets for the challenges of weaning

The situation

Digestive disorders

Digestive disorders are frequent after birth and during transitory feeding periods, particularly weaning. These can trigger dehydration and the development of pathogens in the intestine, which rapidly compromise the integrity of the gut wall. The development of intestinal villi is significantly impacted, reducing the absorption of nutrients and undermining the benefits of feed.

The solution

Intestinal integrity of piglets

The algae extract selected for its marine sulphated polysaccharides stimulates the secretion of mucins in the protective layer of intestinal mucous, boosting the gut’s natural defences. Micronized clays help protect the gut wall mechanically. Clinoptilolite traps ammonia ions to delay the development of intestinal villi.

Protecting your piglets with Ecopiglet


  • 1

    Heavier weight at weaning

  • 2

    Reduced frequency and severity of digestive disorders

  • 3

    Less use of antibiotics and lower veterinary costs

Ecopiglet: Triple action

• Ecopiglet protects the intestinal villi.

• Ecopiglet retains water in the digestive system.

• Ecopiglet is rich in trace elements.

From birth to weaning

Ecopiglet is designed for use from the fifth day of life until weaning to promote feeding. It can also be distributed as a liquid in troughs by adding water.


- From day 1 to day 5: mix a scoop of Ecopiglet with a litre of milk or water at 40°C.

- From day 5 to weaning: use 50 g of dry Ecopiglet per litter daily to prepare piglets’ digestive system for the challenges of weaning.
