  A study was conducted during the months of December-January involving sixty one week old broiler chickens, distributed into two experimental groups having three replicates of ten birds each. The birds of the first group were fed a basal diet (22.5% CP & 2830 K cal/kg ME) while the second group birds were fed a basal diet supplemented with a liver tonic, Superliv concentrate (Ayurvet Limited product) @ 50g/quintal. Body weight gain was significantly higher (P<0.05) in the Superliv concentrate group compared to the control group at 2nd week, 3rd week, 4th week and 5th week of age. FCR was significantly higher (P<0.05) in the Superliv concentrate group than control group during 1-4 wk period (1.9 vs 2.1) and 1-6 wk period (1.97 vs 2.17). Total immunoglobulins and mercaptoethanol resistant (IgG) antibody titer (log 2) values in response to sheep red blood cells (SRBC) was significantly higher (P<0.05) in the Superliv concentrate group compared to the control group. Further, mercaptoethanol sensitive (IgM) antibody titer (log 2) values in response to sheep red blood cells (SRBC) were apparently higher in the Superliv concentrate group compared to the control group. Cell mediated immune (CMI) response (foot web index) was significantly higher (P<0.05) in the Superliv concentrate group compared to the control group. There was no significant difference in the nutrient retention between the Superliv concentrate group and control group. Hence, it may be concluded that Superliv concentrate may be added to broiler diet during winter to elicit growth performance and immunocompetence traits of commercial broilers.

  Tinospora cordifolia also known as Giloy or Guduchi, is an indigenous climber plant indigenous to tropical areas of India, Myanmar and Sri Lanka. Its stem is used for treatment of fever, jaundice, emaciation, skin ailments, diabetes, anaemia and various infectious diseases. The study was undertaken to evaluate the proximate and elemental analysis of the stems of Tinospora cordifolia. The proximate analyses were carried out using standard methods, while mineral elements were analyzed using Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer, equipped with air acetylene flame. The proximate analysis of the stems of Tinospora cordifolia showed that it contained moisture 34.39%, ether extract 0.912%, crude protein 7.74%, crude fibre 56.42%, total ash 7.96%, nitrogen free extract 26.97%, cellulose 23.02% and hemicellulose 3.70%. The mineral analysis of the stems showed that they contain the following essential minerals: Calcium (102.23 ppm), phosphorous (24.81 ppm), iron (26.058 ppm), copper (3.733 ppm), zinc (7.342 ppm) and manganese (12.242 ppm). The study revealed that Tinospora cordifolia stems to be a potential source of nutrition and minerals for man as well as animals.
