1 – POSTBIOTICS Another Racing Pigeon Supplement First for Aviform!
What are Postbiotics?
Postbiotics are non-viable microbial products or metabolic byproducts that are produced during the fermentation of probiotics. They have been shown to provide many benefits to avian species including racing pigeons.
What are the benefits of giving postbiotics to racing pigeons?
Improved gut health: Postbiotics have been shown to improve the composition and function of the gut microbiome. This can improve digestive health, leading to better nutrient absorption and utilisation.
Enhanced immunity: Postbiotics can stimulate the immune system and increase the production of immune cells, such as antibodies and cytokines. This can help pigeons resist infections and diseases.
Reduced inflammation: Postbiotics have anti-inflammatory properties that can help to reduce inflammation in the gut and other parts of the body. This can be especially beneficial for racing pigeons that are under stress from racing.
Improved performance: Postbiotics have been shown to improve performance, including enhancing endurance, reducing fatigue, and improving recovery.
Backed by science?
Postbiotics have more than 500 controlled research studies and over 140 peer-reviewed publications covering immune strength, additional digestive health, optimal overall health, performance and even faster recovery.
2 – L-Carnitine
What is L-Carnitine?
L-carnitine is an amino acid that plays an important role in energy production in cells by helping transport fatty acids into the mitochondria, where they are burned for fuel.
What are the benefits of giving L-Carnitine to racing pigeons?
Improved energy production: By aiding in the transport of fatty acids, L-carnitine can help improve energy production in the body. This can be particularly beneficial for racing pigeons, which require high levels of energy to sustain their performance.
Increased endurance: L-carnitine has been shown to improve endurance in racing pigeons. By improving energy production, L-carnitine may help pigeons sustain their performance for longer periods of time.
Improved recovery: After a race or a long flight, pigeons may experience muscle damage and fatigue. L-carnitine has been shown to aid in muscle recovery and reduce fatigue.
Reduced stress: Racing pigeons experience stress during racing and training. L-carnitine has been shown to reduce stress levels, which will help pigeons perform better and recover more quickly.
The recommended daily intake of L-Carnitine per pigeon is 25 mg for maintenance and 50 mg as a pre-race booster. RAPIDE Factor 4 provides a full 50mg per pigeon per day when given at 2.5 ml per litre.
3 – DMG
What is DMG?
DMG, or dimethylglycine, is a natural amino acid used as a performance supplement for racing pigeons.
Aviform was one of the first companies in the world to produce a DMG supplement for racing pigeons in the 1980s.
What are the benefits of giving DMG to racing pigeons?
Improved oxygen utilisation: DMG has been shown to improve the utilisation of oxygen for racing pigeons. By improving oxygen uptake, DMG will help pigeons perform better.
Enhanced immunity: DMG has immune-boosting properties. This could be particularly useful for racing pigeons, which are susceptible to various diseases and infections.
Increased endurance: DMG has been shown to improve endurance in racing pigeons. By improving oxygen utilisation and reducing fatigue, DMG will help pigeons perform better, particularly during distance races.
Reduced stress: Racing pigeons may experience stress during races or flights, which can affect their performance. DMG has been shown to reduce stress levels, which will help pigeons perform better and recover more quickly.
4 – Vitamin B12
What is Vitamin B12
Vitamin B12 is among the most important additives in the racing pigeon sport. Vitamin B12, also known as cobalamin, is an essential nutrient that plays several important roles.
What are the benefits of giving Vitamin B12 to racing pigeons?
Supports red blood cell formation: Vitamin B12 is necessary for the production of red blood cells, which carry oxygen to the muscles.
Additional benefits: Improved performance and recovery. Increased oxygen utilisation. Improved metabolism of protein, fat and carbohydrates.
