Product Description

From the experts in bird supplements...

NEKTON The animal body is like a machine in that it needs parts, catalysts and fuel if it is to function properly. These substances are called nutrients and most of them must be supplied by the diet.\

NEKTON BIO is a Protein-enriched food supplement to ensure good fether growth and help prevent plumage defects

After years of research and experiments we developed NEKTON-BIO to meet certain problems in a bird's plumage and to ensure healthy feather growth in all types of birds. Feathers are largely protein in nature, which is why 18 free amino acids have been included in NEKTON-BIO to help a bird build the proteins needed. Of the amino acids, arginine, methionine and lysine are particularly vital in a supplement because most cage or aviary birds are fed on bird seed, which is poor in these amino acids. Vitamins A, E, and Biotin also have a positive effect on feather growth. Altogether 13 vitamins, 6 trace elements and calcium have been combined with the amino acids to create a special formula to support the organism during the molt and encourage the growth of smooth and glossy feathers.

The animal body is like a machine in that it needs parts, catalysts and fuel if it is to function properly. These substances are called nutrients and most of them must be supplied by the diet.

Vitamins belong to these vital nutritive substances. Some are essential for the transfer of energy while some are vital for the regulation of the protein, carbohydrate and fat metabolisms. Without vitamins, and minerals, the body is unable to break down the food substances and turn them into structural units and/or energy. Because animals can synthesize only a few vitamins and no minerals they must form a permanent part of the dietary intake. According to reports from veterinarians, however, up to 90% of the ailments they treat in birds are due to an incorrect and inadequate diet. In the majority of cases the cause is a deficiency in the active substances - vitamins, macro and trace elements, especially in times of stress when a birds needs can fluctuate considerably.

At times like these the supply of vitamins is often either insufficient or not available to the body in full, namely, a hypovitaminosis. A hypovitaminosis is not easily recognized at first, but any long-term deficiency will lead to considerable damage to a birds health and finally to its death.
