Effect of Turmeric Rhizome Powder on the Activity of Some Blood Enzymes in Broiler Chickens

M. Emadi and H. Kermanshahi

In order to study the effect of turmeric rhizome powder (TRP) on the activity of some blood enzymes in broiler chicken, a 49 days experiment using corn-soybean meal based diet containing four levels of TRP (0.0, 0.25, 0.50 and 0.75%) as treatments with five replicates in a completely randomized design was conducted. 200 Ross male broiler chicken from 0-49 days were housed in 20 pens and received feed and water ad-libitum. At 21 and 42 days of age, one blood serum sample from each replicate of treatment was collected. Inclusion of TRP significantly increased LDH and AST enzymes (P< 0.05). TRP in the diets also significantly decreased ALT and ALP enzymes (P< 0.05). Under the conditions of this study, it was concluded that TRP might have some positive effects on liver enzymes that directly or indirectly reflects a healthier liver status in broiler chickens.
