Keto-Nia Drench is a liquid oral supplement for cows. This drench consists of Propylene Glycol, Niacin, and other B-Vitamins to help maintain normal energy and vitamin levels at freshening. Keto-Nia Drench is a safe follow-up to conventional IV treatment for ketosis.
Niacin has been shown to reduce ketosis and increase milk protein percent in some experiments but not others. It has been shown to increase a protozoan species, namely Entodinia in the rumen that engulfs starch, potentially helping to protect the cow from acidosis. If the rumen pH is normalized due to the presence of more entodinia then more bacteria would be able to grow there. Rumen bacteria are the best source of protein for the cow. Another function of nicotinic acid or niacin in mammals is that it increases blood flow and potentially helps alleviate heat stress during the summer.
