Avi-Immune is a formulation developed specifically for birds to supply DMG (dimethylglycine) in an easy to use and readily accepted form. DMG is an amino acid found in such foods as cereal grains, liver, and beans. As a nutritional supplement, DMG acts as a building block for the synthesis of many important substances such as choline, the amino acid methionine, several hormones, neurotransmitters, and DNA.
DMG is thought the improve energy and stamina by improving the cellular use of oxygen. And, most significantly, studies have shown large increases in immune response under treatment with DMG. There are also many other effects attributed to DMG, including antioxidant properties, cholesterol regulating effects, improved mental abilities.
Avi-Immune is therefore an excellent supplement for aging or chronically ill birds or birds experiencing stressful situations.
