Abstract: 

Introduction: Probiotics are microbial feed additives with beneficial effects on guest by improving the function of digestive system microflora. Bioplus 2B is a probiotic used to increase growth and weight gain in some animals. However, the effects of these compounds on other body functions have not been recognized yet. This study aimed to examine the effects of bioplus 2B on total protein, urea blood glucose, triglyceride and closterol of blood in lamb.
Methods: 32 lambs aged two to three months were randomly divided into four groups; they were feed with a standard feed and raised in the same conditions. The group 1-3 was given daily, 1000, 500 and 250 gram bioplus per ton of feed and the fourth group left as control. The lambs were raised for 3 month, and the blood samples were taken from each animal four times. The serums were separated from the blood samples by stirring and then placed in a fridge until analyzing. The amount of total protein, urea glucose, triglyceride and cholesterol were determined in each lamb serum. Data were analyzed by SPSS program using one-way ANOVA method to determine differences between groups. The p value less than 0.05 were considered significant.
Results: There were not significant changes in the level of total proteins in the serum of different groups. However, significant changes were shown in the amount of glucose, triglyceride and closterol of treated groups compared to control. These alterations were in a dose-dependent manner and it seems that changes in the first group were bigger. It was also shown that the amount of urea was significantly increased in treated lambs in some stages of sampling.
Conclusion: It can be concluded that bioplus 2B can reduce the amount of blood sugar and fat. It suggests that this probiotic can be considered in human food for lowering blood sugar and fat.
