AviFlax is a human-grade milled flax product processed specifically for
feeding to birds. Aviflax is chemical free and non GMO. AviFlax is an all
natural product that 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 atheriosclerosis. In another interesting study, the hatchlings of
parents fed flax oil were found to have higher levels of antibody production.
Only premium Northern-grown flax seed is used for AviFlax. 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, lignans and proteins missing from oil in an
easy to feed form.
AviFlax can be sprinkled on dry or moist food or mixed
into egg food. AviFlax can also be baked into "birdie bread recipies.
