The use of herbs to preserve health though is age old science and abundantly practiced in Indian sub-continent yet, its usage had been restricted due to lack of scientific evidences. 
However, the concern for safety of Human, ever-increasing problem of resistance in micro-organisms & emergence of newer and newer problem due to lack of inherent resistance in the animals and human alike has once again put focus on alternate approach. 
In last two decades or so, with plethora of scientific research, efficacy and safety studies as well as meticulous placement of information has made it more palatable, useful & enticing. 
One area in animal production system which has gained maximum momentum in last decade is mycotoxin problem and various approaches ranging from dilution to UV exposure, binding to inactivation & enzymatic reaction to biological degradation. Yet, the issue is there rather its omnipresent due to various factors e.g. multiple mycotoxin, weather, grain quality vs. cost, limitation of various approaches. The use of phytogens as a part of comprehensive solution to the problem of multiple mycotoxicosis is thus an honest and sincere endeavour.
The endeavour is to research the existing practices through herbals, combined with most advanced & reliable contemporary approach like binding and inactivation of toxins. The new dimension added to the concept will provide extra edge in terms of excellent efficacy, safety of animal as well as human & less or no problem of resistance emergence. This will open a new dimension to the approach towards mycotoxicosis in animal production.  
 Some of the herbs are really powerful anti-fungal and mycotoxin inhibitors and plethora of information is available now on their mechanism of action, potency and standardization.
