Flower-based supplement to intensify the color of yellow areas in bird feathers

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 support 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 physiological effects (as biological antioxidants or immunostimulatory effects). Tagetes also contains active ingredients that are involved in the formation of new plumage.

In order to increase the quality of NEKTON-Gelb, we focused on great value natural components. NEKTON-Gelb contains pure brewer's yeast & yeast cell walls and combines the advantages of the prebiotic and immunostimulatory effects of yeast cell walls with valuable nutrients of brewer's yeast.

Brewer's yeast is one of the most valuable products of all because it is a combination of health-promoting nutrients. These include essential amino acids (Such as methionine, which is particularly important for birds), B vitamins, various minerals, trace elements and enzymes. The nutrients contained in the brewer's yeast has a positive effect on the bird organism and is an important components for new plumage, which are increasingly needed during molting. Brewer's yeast can strengthen the bird's immune system and can help support the intestinal flora.

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 period.

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 and therefore, a combination of NEKTON-Gelb with NEKTON-Biotin / NEKTON-S is recommended.

Feeding Recommendation

1 to 3 level measuring spoons of NEKTON-Gelb with 100 g soft food. It is advisable not to administer NEKTON-Gelb with water, as the supplement contains natural components that are not water-soluble. NEKTON-Gelb is administered shortly before and during molting. Storage: NEKTON-Gelb should be stored dry and out of sunlight, between 15° and 25°C. DO NOT STORE IN THE FRIDGE!!!
