Bee Pollen - Nature's Power-Packed Conditioner

Bee pollen is a natural power packed conditioner! Balanced in essential nutrients, it is an excellent conditioning food for our canaries and they love it.

Bee Pollen contains 16 essential amino acids and approximately 25% complete protein.  Because of the protein level it should feed in small amounts or added to other conditioning seeds and fed a couple of times a week. (Avoid Overfeeding as too much protein will cause the bird's feet to turn red and if overfeeding continues it will favor its foot, standing on only one foot.)

In addition to protein, bee pollen provides more than a dozen vitamins such as  A and B1 - 2 - 3 - 5 - 6 -12  and D and E and folic acid ,  all 28 minerals such as major minerals like calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, selenium, and iodine, 14 beneficial fatty acids, and 11 carbohydrates. What a great combination!
