Flower-based supplement to intensify the color of yellow areas in bird
NEKTON-Gelb is a pet food supplement given to birds, to intensify the yellow
areas in their
feathers. NEKTON-Gelb prevents feather colors from fading and can help to
the bird’s health in a natural way during the molting period.
NEKTON-Gelb contains ground marigold flowers. Tagetes is a natural product
that contains various carotenoids and can intensify the yellow color in
feathers. Carotenoids are of vital importance for colored feathers.
The main pigment of the marigold flowers is xanthophyll lutein. Feeding
experiments have shown that the yellow plumage in birds only occurs when lutein
is ingested with the food.
Carotenoids are not only known for their coloring effect, they are also awarded

In addition to brewer's yeast, NEKTON-Gelb contains brewer's yeast cell
walls, which consist of mannan oligosaccharides (MOS) and beta-glucans. These
ingredients can have prebiotic effects on the beneficial microflora of the
intestine and can naturally promote a balanced intestinal flora.
The need for individual amino acids during the molt is particularly high.
Birds with a diet insufficient in amino acids can present a delayed change of
feathers as well as disturbances of the feather morphology (such as, for
example, curved or very soft feathers). NEKTON-Gelb contains 18 amino acids,
which can support the formation of new plumage during the strenuous molting
In order to obtain an optimal coloring, NEKTON-Gelb should be used
immediately before and during the period of molting. A daily diet must contain
sufficient vitamins, minerals and trace elements for a functioning metabolism
