Parrot Flax™ is a human-grade, organic flax product. We've blended golden flax seed meal with flax seed powder giving this supplement a slightly sweeter taste and more palatable. It is an all-natural product that is a wonderful contributor to healthy feathers and improves the health of parrots and their offspring.
Omega 3,6 & 9 from flax seed has been shown the enhance antibody production and protect against hypertension. In studies of parrots, Omega 3 fatty acids were associated with a reduced incidence of atherosclerosis. In another interesting study, the hatchlings of parents fed flax oil were found to have higher levels of antibody production.
Flax seed is not usable whole and must be ground to release beneficial fatty acids. While flax oil contains Omega fatty acids, whole milled seed is better for birds as it provides the fiber, antioxidants, lignins and proteins missing from oil in an easy to feed form.
