In an attempt to improve the immune system of birds, Dr Harrison has been searching for a new product that will be of benefit. During extensive searches for a natural compound, he discovered the benefits of palm oil extracts. Harrison's Bird Foods has now combined certified organic extracts of palm oil with their Power Treats. Feeding trials have been underway in the USA and The Netherlands for three years. Many benefits of this new product are already evident.
1. high antioxidant content (vitamin E and coenzyme Q10)
2. high carotenoid content (precursors to vitamin A)
3. good balance of essential fatty acids
4. high antibacterial and anti parasitic properties due to the presence of lactoferrin.
-Dry flaky skin (beak, nails), balding of the feet, lack of sheen and proper color to feathers. -Most aging birds on formulated diets benefit from it. -Some members of certain species known to eat high oil diets do better with this oil in their diet. For example African Grey Parrots, Hyacinth Macaws and Palm Cockatoos. -There seemingly is an increase in reproductive activity. Since this is considered normal, it is not considered a detrimental side effect. Nor has the product yet to be shown to increase reproduction rates in birds fed the product. -Preliminary results have shown two cases of juvenile cataracts to have regressed.
Veterinarian's suggest use during the weaning of hand-fed birds or to provide special supplements for birds that not eating a nutritionally sound diet. Also use Harrison's Bird Food Power Treats when you are changing your birds diet from seeds to Harrison's. Birds needing to gain weight or resume normal diet following an illness will benefit from Harrison's Bird Food Power Treats.
Studies showed birds on a SEED DIET supplemented with only palm fruit oil developed fatty liver. Power Treats with palm fruit oil need to be part of an otherwise balanced diet, not just a supplement for seeds.
