CAYENNE PEPPER – Cayenne is native to tropical where many of our feathered friends hail from. Cayenne is known for its blood cleansing properties, fending off disease and to also equalize blood circulation. Don’t worry, Cayenne wont “burn” birds the same way it does we us. Cayenne strengthens the heart action but at the same time it does not increase blood pressure. It is known to have antibacterial properties and to prevent heart attacks and stroke.
QUINOA – Quinoa is jam-packed with lysine and healthy amounts of the other amino acids that make a protein complete, besides being a repository for phosphorus, calcium, iron, vitamin E, and assorted B vitamins.
