They play a major role in good health since even minute portions of them can powerfully affect health. They are essential in assimilation and utilization of vitamins and other nutrients. They aid in digestion and provide the catalyst for many hormones, enzymes and essential body functions and reactions. They also aid in replacing electrolytes lost through extended diarrhea and protect against toxic reaction and heavy metal poisoning.
There are minerals in the foods we serve our birds, such as fruits and vegetables. Unfortunately in today’s world, naturally nutrient-rich foods are becoming a thing of the past. The combination factors of nutrient-depleted agricultural soils from centuries of use and synthetic fertilizers forcing crops to grow rapidly with no regard to nutrient absorption, results in foods having very little mineral nutritional value. These aggressive farming techniques have depleted our soils of macro minerals in this country. The essential trace elements are not in over 95% of any of the foods available to captive birds today. Trace Minerals obtained through natural plant sources are the absolute best type of trace minerals for your bird. But, if the plant is deprived, so too your bird is deprived. It is our job to provide these so very vital elements such as those contained in our Trace Mineral Dust.
Our Mineral Dust provides 63 trace minerals. Serve in a treat cup for free choice or sprinkle on their soft food. This will ensure your birds are getting the key components needed for robust health and vitality.
