A warning.

The health food industry has designated SPIRULINA a SUPER FOOD. This is a bit ‘hypie’ but in fairness in this case they have got it pretty right, so much so that here at NFB we include it in all of our supplements.
Not by itself, but working together with some of the other ingredients in our products, it will have a beneficial effect on fertility, the immune system, feather colour and growth.
The analysis below will give you an idea of how amazing this ingredient is:

WARNING – wonderful though Spirulina is, like many things in life, the right amount will do you a world of good, but too much is bad for you, and in this case, give too much to your birds and they will get tummy troubles.
There is the correct amount of SPIRULINA in NFB products to give you all of the benefits without a vestige of harm, so don’t add any more!

NB. There is no danger of overdosing your birds on any NFB supplement.
