A Live Probiotic Specifically Developed for the Avian Gut and Intestine
AVI-CULTURE-2™ is over 1,000 times more effective than most other avian probiotic products available to date! This new version now contains 10 viable strains totalling 5 Billion CFU's per gram!
AVI-CULTURE-2™ is produced using proven, field-tested microorganisms that have been shown to implant on the villi of the intestinal tract in birds: Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Bifidobacterium lactis, Bifidobacterium longum, Bifidobacterium bifidum, Lactobacillus salivarius, manufactured through a fermentation process and freeze-dried. This combined culture is blended with Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) a prebiotic, Magnesium stearate (Plant-based) as an anti-caking agent and Rice Maltodextrin as a carrier for a guaranteed potency of well over 2 Billion (02x109 CFU/g) at Best-if-used-by date shown on bottle label.
Probiotics boost the immune system. Acidophillus also helps to restore the microbial balance within the digestive tract. The probiotic strains acidophilus and bifidum release anti-fungal enzymes and alkalinize the body, so pathogens, such as candida, can't flourish.
AVI-CULTURE is a totally safe and beneficial product that utilizes species-specific "friendly" bacteria that arrives in the gut in sufficient quantities to allow birds to get back on track to a healthy, happy and long life!
Probiotics are recommended ...
- Recommended for stressed; breeding or molting birds; or growing chicks
- Sickly / ailing birds: When "good" or "friendly" bacteria are low, pathogenic (harmful) bacteria are able to multiply causing diarrhea, "pasted-up" vents, weight loss, "going light" and a variety of other problems.
- Healthy bacteria also help reduce allergies by balancing the immune system in a bird's gut.
- They are important after all antibiotic treatments to put good bacteria back into the digestive system. The benefits of probiotics are essential to good health and full recovery after treatments.
- Please refer to an article published in the Parrots Magazine called the "Holistic Parrot Avian-Specific Probiotics" (pdf file) which outlines the benefits of avian probiotics and specifically recommends Avi-Culture (published with permission)
