Added value of a condition preparation…

Condition powder as an additional source of energy.

During physical exertion over a longer period of time, pigeons switch from burning carbohydrates to burning fat. Fats are the most important source of energy on long-haul flights. Fat burning in pigeons also provides twice as much energy as carbohydrate and protein burning. A conditioning supplement must therefore have a high fat content in order to increase the calorific value of the feed.

Addition of lecithin as an emulsifier to better digest fats and as a transport aid for fats in the body.

Since pigeons have no gallbladder and therefore no bile and since fats are not water-soluble, an emulsion is necessary so that fats can be digested in the small intestine. Lecithin fulfills the role of an emulsifier and must therefore be supplied to the pigeons with the feed. Soya, sunflower seeds and rapeseed contain relatively high concentrations of lecithin, but they are not always present in sufficient amounts or the pigeons absorb too little of it. Lecithin also ensures that fatty substances in the blood can be converted into energy more easily and quickly.

L-carnitine is indispensable for burning fat in muscle cells.

Carnitine is partially formed by the body itself from the essential amino acids methionine and lysine. Since these amino acids are not sufficiently contained in most pigeon feed mixtures, the pigeons also produce too little themselves. It is therefore necessary that carnitine is supplied through feed supplements. This is possible with animal products that contain carnitine. However, since pigeons consume little or no animal products on traditional pigeon feed, an extra carnitine intake in combination with a pigeon feed mixture with sufficient fat content is very useful for pigeons.

Vitamins: the more, the better?

Vitamins are essential organic substances that the body only needs in small amounts. Each has a specific function and they are important in building enzymes and coenzymes. Vitamins cannot be produced by the body itself and must be ingested through diet. The daily vitamin requirement can increase in pigeons when they have to do a lot (when rearing, moulting or in the racing season), after an illness (in the case of diarrhoea, intestinal inflammation) or after taking medication. The vitamins that play a role in (fat) metabolism and (fat) burning are sometimes referred to as sports vitamins (B vitamins, vitamin E and biotin). Vitamins that support growth and resistance are called breeding-or-moulting vitamins (vitamin A, vitamin C, and some B vitamins).
