AviFlax Gold is a human-grade organic milled flax product processed specifically for feeding to birds. Aviflax Gold is chemical free and non GMO. It 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 Gold. 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.
