AviFlax milled flax seed is processed specifically for feeding to birds. Aviflax is chemical free and non GMO. It is vitamin fortified and stabilized for enhanced bioavailability and shelf life. AviFlax is an all natural product that supplies elements (Omega fatty acids) that improves the health of parrots and their offspring. Omega 3 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. If ground too aggressively, nutrients can be lost due to oxidation and other damage, so AviFlax flax seed is gently milled to retain maximum nutritional benefit. While flax oil contains Omega 3, 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.
