I have been reading through a blog which touts the benefits of organic bee pollen to pet birds.
It says that a pinch should be sprinkled over their food of a morning.
My question is, is it worthwhle giving my 2 budgies bee pollen?
I would like to find out before spending money on it.
Below is an extract from the article.
“Bee pollen is a whole food supplement…that contains at least 130 substances of nutritional significance. The high quality of protein exceeds the amount in beef or chicken. Bee pollen is composed of about 50% carbohydrates, rich in fatty acids, almost all known minerals, amino acids, enzymes, trace elements, vitamins like B complex, A,C,D, E, beta carotene, an antibiotic potent against E. coli."
"Feeding bee pollen prevents nutritional imbalance, deficiencies, accumulations of toxins in the body, and helps strengthen the immune system and prevent disease…it is the richest food in nature.”
