      Not using any Vitamin or supplements as most of them are made for poultry or cattles, very few are available here in Pakistan which are for exotic birds and importers are selling at sky high prices.

      I am giving my birds all types of seasonal fruits/vegies, soaked/sprouted beans, pulses, boiled rice, soft food, corn on comb and a good seed mix. My birds never show signs of any kind of defficiency.

      NOTE: This thread is only for listing the Vitamins/supplements used by any fancier, not to debate either they are good or bad. Please stick to the subject

          AssalamoAlaikum Saboor Bhai
          I am using faraminovit and nutreka
          both are in powder form being water soluble

          have attached a comparison file of ingredients of the products that were available to me here in Karachi.Based on this comparison,i finalized nutreka and faraminovit for the birds

            Re: what vitamin supplements are you using ?

            I am personally not using any vitamins or other supplements ... below is the list of useful vitamins, their benefits and sources from natural foods and solubility level...

            Vitamin A = good for Vision , healthy bones , immune system and reproduction
            Sources (eggs,carrots, potatoes, dark green colored vegetables like spinach)
            FAT SOLUBLE

            Folic Acid or Vitamin B9= Being used by pregnant women all over the world to help minimized the defects in new born baby
            Sources (Dark green colored vegetables like spinach, Oranges, some grains)
            NOT WATER SOLUBLE

            Biotin or Vitamin B7= very essential in body's metabolic reactions and good for cell growth.. It's a common ingredient in creams that are used in men and women for hair loss ..
            Sources (Lettuce, carrots, tomatoes )
            NOT WATER SOLUBLE

            Thiamine or Vitamin B1 = good for nervous system and heart , helps convert food into energy and good for normal growth...
            Sources ( lentils , peas , wheat bread , spinach, orange , wheat germ (contains the most) ..
            THIAMINE ALONE IS SOLUBLE IN WATER BUT IF USED AS THIAMINE*HCL THEN ITS ONLY SOLUBLE IN ACIDIC WATER

            Pyridoxine or Vitamin B6= good for women as it balances the hormonal change in them, good for cell growth, and immune system .. it is also good for skin and heart problems!!
            Sources (eggs, chicken, carrots , fish, walnuts)
            NOT WATER SOLUBLE

            Riboflavin or Vitamin B2 = good for red cells, respiratory system, skin nail and hair growth, and good for healing wounds ..
            Sources ( whole grains, green vegetables, milk, fish, eggs, almonds and mushrooms)
            NOT WATER SOLUBLE

            Cobalamin or Vitamin B12= good to maintain healthy nervous system and to make blood cells ..
            Sources (Dairy products and eggs)
            WATER SOLUBLE TO SOME EXTENT

            Niacin or Nicotinic Acid or Vitamin B3= main purpose is to convert food into energy but also good for hormone production ,nervous and digestive system.. good for lowering bad cholesterol .
            Sources (chicken, beef(liver and kidney), fish, beets , strawberry and peanuts)

            Sources (most of the raw fruits and vegetables)
            Now human body can not store Vitamin C but it is soluble in water

            Vitamin K= is good for production of coagulation proteins.. or in simple words it helps regulate the blood to clot when needed ..
            Sources (Asparagus , green vegetables, olive oil )
            ONLY FAT SOLUBLE

            Vitamin D = helps in the absorption and metabolism of calcium and phosphorous..

            Also has chains D1-D2-D3-D4-D5 ...

            Vitamin E = Protects blood cells, good for DNA, also protects eye retina , nervous system and muscles.. good source as an antioxidant also it acts as a shield against poisons and diseases that can damage the body..
            Sources (cod liver oil , wheat germ oil , nuts , green vegetables , sprouts , soy beans , olive oil, broccoli , spinach)

                Re: what vitamin supplements are you using ?

                Guys here is a multi vitamin/ multi mineral supplement with the trace elements. I use it for my finches and parrots. It is recommended to be used on soft food and fruits and is not soluble in water. I have intentionally not mentioned the name of the manufacturer and its brand name, otherwise it will be observed as an advertisement.

                This product is from Holland and sold through their distributors world wide over.

                    Thanksto all the brothers who have replied,

                    brother cokeguy i will certainly be picking your brains at some point certainly so i can look at what i am using myself, watchman can you please share the name, i am hoping to look at a comparison similar to brother usaid who has currently done faraminovit and nutreka, permaso and prime, i have vitalyte from brother imran, is there any others which people are using, i will search the forum but i'm sure i have heard about nekton products.

                    And finally, this is not a thread about who does and who doesnt use supplements.

                    thanks again

                        sir jee

                        i dont want this thread starting to discuss artificial v's natural for a reason, in fact you have quoted this yourself, the reason will come clear some time later once i have done my comparison.
