Why do we recommend Parrot B-Calm?
Parrot B-Calm contains ingredients L-tryptophan, thiamine and turmeric.
L-Tryptophan is a natural pre-cursor for the synthesis of serotonin in the body. Serotonin is the key hormone that stabilizes mood, feelings of well-being, and happiness.
Thiamine is an essential vitamin that is not synthesized in the body. Therefore, it must be absorbed from food sources. Thiamine plays a large part in the function of the nervous system, as well as in the metabolism of energy in the body.
Turmeric contains curcumin, this is a plant derived product that has anti-inflammatory properties as well as being a stimulator for the release of dopamine and serotonin – two hormones that stabilise mood. Curcumin also enhances the synthesis of DHA and Glutathione which play important roles in the health of the brain.
Parrot B-Calm is designed to be fed at a rate of 80% of your parrots total diet, with the remaining 20% to be primarily fresh fruit and vegetables to provide variety and enrichment. Fresh water must always be available.
Parrots require a minimum of 10% of their bodyweight in pellets per day, for example:
➢ 90g Cockatiel: Requires a minimum 9g of pellets per day
➢ 150g Sun Conure: Requires a minimum of 15g of pellets per day
➢ 300g Galah: Requires a minimum of 30g of pellets per day.
Symptoms of avian anxiety and stress may include changes in vocalisation, feather destructive behaviour, aggression, pacing, head swinging, shaking, decreased appetite and hiding. Time and care should be given to consider a bird’s environment and other potential stress/anxiety triggers that may require management in addition to feeding Parrot B-Calm.
