Table 6 Nutritional strategies to mitigate mycotoxins toxicitya

From: Invited review: Remediation strategies for mycotoxin control in feed


Nutritional strategies




Selenium, vitamins C, vitamins E, vitamin B1, carotenoids, silymarin, curcumin, butylated hydroxytoluene, alpha lipoic acid, quercetin, resveratrol, rhamnoides oil

Mainly by improving antioxidant capacity and detoxification enzyme activities to alleviate the harm of AFB1 to livestock and poultry

[11, 178,179,180,181,182,183,184,185,186,187,188]


Selenium, vitamins C, vitamins E, silymarin, curcumin, functional amino acid (methionine, glutamic acid, arginine, aspartate and lysine), antimicrobial peptide, astragalus

Primarily through enhancement of antioxidant capacity and immune functions to improve the resistance to DON in livestock and poultry.

[179, 180, 189,190,191,192,193,194]


Retinol, as-corbic acid, alpha-tocopherol, silymarin, soybean isoflavone

Alleviated the toxic effects of ZEN by improving the antioxidant capacity and inhibiting the estrogenic toxicity of ZEN.

[17, 190, 195]


Vitamin E, silymarin, curcumin, soybean isoflavone

Mainly via counteracting the oxidative stress caused by FB1 to livestock.
