Supporting the immune system
The immune system consists or a very complex set of defenses that the body
uses to fight infections. A whole range of vitamins and minerals are
involved in its effective functioning but modern nutritional ingredients
enable us to provide even better support.
Unique white cell support system
Recent Birdcare Company development work has focused on the white blood
cells. These are the immune system's "Rapid Reaction Force". When invaded by
an infectious germ like a virus or bacteria the immune system makes huge
quantities of white blood cells that rapidly spread through the blood system
and kill the invaders.
Any of you who have worked in a factory will know that, when there is a
sudden large demand for a particular product, you inevitably can't make it
because you are short of stocks of at least one raw material. This can and
does occur in the body as well, and limits its ability to produce those
extra white blood cells.
In addition, white blood cells use large quantities of fats to power
themselves as they go about attacking invaders. Fats are burned in the
cells' "boiler houses" (called mitochondria) and a special vitamin-like
substance is used to get the fats into the mitochondria. Again this material
can be rapidly depleted in the face of a hostile enemy.
So, by adding the special nutrients most in demand for rapid white cell
production and by adding the special vitamin-like substance, the bottlenecks
can be prevented and the immune system can work at full power.
Our new product, Guardian Angel, is based around these two
revolutionary new concepts. In order to make the use of this product as
simple as possible we have also included many of our other unique
nutritional ingredients. So Guardian Angel contains the vitamins and unique
Rapisorb minerals normally found in the "Essentials" products. It contains
the beneficial probiotic bacteria and herbs from BioPlus and the highly
bioavailable minerals found in Maxima and ProBoost SuperMax. A maintenance
level of calcium is provided and this has been developed from Calcivet
Finally the whole package is mixed in with the electrolytes, extra vitamin C
and long term energy found in Spark (Energise). Like Spark (Energise),
Guardian Angel is 100% active ingredients.
So Guardian Angel, used as a single dietetic supplement to a normal
diet, should meet all of the patient's nutritional supplement needs as well
as providing unprecedented immune system support. This means that Guardian
Angel is both easy and economical to use. Sometimes, if you think extra
calcium would be of value extra Calcivet (CalciBoost) can be used.
Guardian Angel is designed to be applied either in the drinking water
or on suitable fresh foods and eggfoods.
The white cell support system has also been added to Poly-Aid (Survive
outside Europe) making this the most sophisticated emergency food on the
Other immune support
Many Birdcare products contain a variety of ingredients (such as our
Flourish herbs) that support the immune system.
These herbal ingredients are mostly used to keep healthy birds fit. Flourish
herbs are used in Poly-Aid (Survive), Feast eggfood, Special Needs Diet and
