Health and wellness circles have been praising the nutritional benefits of Red Palm Oil for a few years now, but this super-food is anything but new. In fact, herbologists have traced it’s use all the way back to the Ancient Egyptians!
So, what is it? And, more importantly, how can it help your bird? Don’t worry, we’ll get there!
The Parrot Shop’s Organic Red Palm Oil is sustainably extracted from organic palm fruit trees, native to West Africa. The result? One of the richest, natural sources of carotenoids on the market today!
Carotenoids are dietary building blocks that are chock-full of cancer-fighting antioxidants. They also promote strong cardiovascular health, assist in the formation of bones, improve infection resistance, promote healthy eye tissue, repair body tissue… this list goes on. Simply put, carotenoids are “of great dietary importance,” for humans and birds… and cats… and dogs. We all need them.
Usually, our feathered friends get their carotenoids from fruits, vegetables, and pricey dietary supplements. But, not anymore! Organic Red Palm Oil contains 15 times the betacarotene of a carrot, and also contains Vitamin E, Omega 3, Omega 6, and Vitamin A. Which is way more efficient, and way more cost effective, than a grocery cart full of produce.
It takes just two-teaspoons per week for your bird to enjoy the countless nutritional benefits of Red Palm Oil! Red Palm Oil is especially helpful for African Grey Parrots, Macaw’s and Palm Cockatoos, but can benefit birds of all shapes and sizes.
