[ATLANTA, Ga.] - Marking 25 years as a provider of natural solutions for the animal feed industry, Alltech did not go unnoticed at the 2005 International Poultry Exposition in Atlanta, Georgia 25-28 January 2005.

The 2004 Crystal Egg winner for "Best Overall Booth" again touted the benefits of Sel-Plex? (organic selenium) by serving a "Sel-Plex breakfast" complete with made to order omelets and Sel-Plex tablets were also distributed to guests at the booth. Traditional Irish dancers were the highlight of each afternoon, entertaining the crowd while Irish coffee was served to all that were present during Alltech's Happy Hour.

Professor Frank Edens, North Carolina State University presented "Alzheimer's Disease and the Role of Antioxidant Protection" at the Thursday morning breakfast. Professor Edens explained the benefits of a diet that is sufficient in selenium, including the reduced risk of Alzheimer's Disease. Professor Edens is a leader in selenium research in poultry, including the areas of fertility and broiler nutrition. His latest findings show that organic selenium may play a role in treating Alzheimer's Disease.
