Exploring the Differential Effects of Synthetic Choline and Herbal Choline on Hepatic Lipid Metabolism in Broiler Chicken

Dr. N Singh | Dr. P. Bhardwaj


Abstract: This study examines the effects of synthetic and herbal choline sources on hepatic lipid metabolism in broiler chickens. One hundred - and fifty - day - old Ven Cobb broiler chickens were observed over 42 days. They were randomly divided into three groups: a control group without additional choline chloride and two treatment groups. The control group received feed without added choline chloride. One treatment group was fed with feed containing a herbal product (NATU CHOLINE? DS by Rivansh Animal Nutrition Pvt Ltd, Paonta Sahib India) at a rate of 150 gm/tonne of feed, while the other treatment group received a combination of synthetic choline chloride at 1kg/tonne (60%) and biotin at 150 mg/tonne of feed. Serum triglycerides and cholesterol levels were measured on days 21 and 42 to assess hepatic lipid metabolism. Gross pathological changes in the liver were observed in representative birds from each group at the end of the study. Results showed that both synthetic and herbal choline sources led to reduced cholesterol and triglyceride levels compared to the control group, indicating a decrease in fatty liver occurrence. However, there were no significant differences observed between the two treatments. Gross pathological examination of the liver revealed no noteworthy alterations compared to the control group, suggesting that herbal supplements could potentially replace synthetic counterparts in broiler diets.
