Calcium is the predominant mineral in a pigeons body comprising of about 1.5% of the overall weight. Calcium is vital for bones, egg shell formation and blood clotting as well as for nerves, muscle and enzyme systems. Sport C has been formulated especially for pigeons as a supplement to aid the diet during breeding, rearing and youngster growth. Calcium absorption is regulated by Vitamin D3 and Phosphorus. Sport C helps to augment this uptake within the upper and lower intestines to maintain a constant and level nutritional supply. Sport C should be used as directed during the breeding season and for youngsters from weaning through to racing. It is important that Sport C is used with high protein diets to assist with calcium absorption. Avoid high fat diets as these could impede rapid absorption.
