The importance of MSM used in the supplements for racing pigeons.

MSM, or methylsulfonylmethane, is a naturally occurring compound found in many plants and animals, including humans. It is also commonly used in dietary supplements and topical creams for its potential health benefits. However, MSM has also been found to be a valuable ingredient in products for racing pigeons, offering a range of benefits that can help improve their overall health and performance.

One of the key benefits of MSM for racing pigeons is its anti-inflammatory properties. Inflammation can be a major issue for racing pigeons, particularly as they age or become injured. Inflammation can lead to pain and discomfort, which can ultimately impact the pigeon’s ability to race or even fly at all. By reducing inflammation in the body, MSM can help alleviate pain and discomfort, allowing racing pigeons to perform at their best.

MSM is also believed to support joint health in racing pigeons. As birds age or suffer from injuries, joint issues can become increasingly common, leading to discomfort and a reduced range of motion. MSM has been shown to help support joint health, promoting healthy cartilage and reducing inflammation that can contribute to joint pain and stiffness.

In addition, MSM has been found to support respiratory health in racing pigeons. Respiratory issues can be a significant problem for racing pigeons, particularly during times of stress or in crowded conditions. MSM has been shown to help support healthy respiratory function, reducing the risk of respiratory infections and promoting optimal breathing capacity.

Finally, MSM may also offer benefits for the overall health and immune function of racing pigeons. By supporting healthy cellular function and reducing oxidative stress, MSM may help boost the pigeon’s immune system, improving its ability to fight off infections and maintain good health.

Overall, MSM is a valuable ingredient in products for racing pigeons, offering a range of potential benefits for their health and performance. Whether you are looking to support joint health, respiratory function, or overall immune function, MSM can be a valuable tool in promoting the health and well-being of your racing pigeons. By incorporating MSM into your pigeon’s diet or supplement regimen, you can help ensure that they are able to perform at their best and enjoy a long and healthy life. You can do that by choosing one of our products that contains MSM, such as Biotics, Fly Power, Fly Power Tab or Protein Plus.


The dangers of over-supplementing racing pigeons and the importance of the probiotics and prebiotics

Racing pigeons are incredible athletes that need proper nutrition to perform at their best. Many fanciers use supplements to help maintain the health and performance of their birds. However, over-supplementing racing pigeons can be dangerous and detrimental to their health. In this article, we will explore the dangers of over-supplementing racing pigeons and the importance of probiotics and prebiotics for their digestive health.

Excessive supplementation of racing pigeons can lead to various health problems, including liver and kidney damage. Pigeons are very sensitive to high levels of certain nutrients, especially fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamins A, D, and E. These vitamins can accumulate in the liver and other organs, leading to toxicity and damage. Too much vitamin A can cause bones to deform, while too much vitamin D can lead to calcium deposits in organs and blood vessels. Vitamin E overdose can interfere with blood clotting, leading to bleeding.

Another danger of over-supplementing racing pigeons is the risk of imbalances in the bird’s diet. Pigeons need a balanced diet containing adequate amounts of protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, and minerals. Excessive supplementation of one nutrient can lead to a deficiency of another, leading to malnutrition and health problems. For example, overeating protein supplements can lead to excessive production of uric acid, which can cause kidney damage.

What we recommend you to use consistently to ensure your pigeons have a healthy digestive system are probiotics and prebiotics. Probiotics are live bacteria that help balance the gut microbiota, which is a collection of microorganisms that reside in the digestive tract. Gut microbiota plays a critical role in digestion, nutrient absorption, and immune function.

Prebiotics, on the other hand, are a type of dietary fiber that feeds the gut microbiota. They are not digested by the body but are fermented by intestinal bacteria, producing short-chain fatty acids that provide energy to intestinal cells and help maintain intestinal barrier function. Prebiotics can also help improve gut microbiota diversity and promote the growth of beneficial bacteria, leading to better digestive health and overall well-being.

Probiotics and prebiotics work synergistically to support healthy gut microbiota. Probiotics help introduce beneficial bacteria into the gut, while prebiotics provides the food they need to thrive. Together, they can help maintain a healthy digestive system, improve nutrient absorption, and support immune function.

It is important to note that not all probiotics and prebiotics are created equal. Different strains of bacteria and types of prebiotics have different effects on the body, and not all supplements are effective. This is why we recommend using Biotics which has the best types of probiotics and prebiotics for pigeons. In conclusion, excessive supplementation of racing pigeons can be dangerous and detrimental to their health. It is essential to use supplements judiciously and adhere to the recommended dosage and frequency. Providing a balanced diet that meets the nutritional requirements of your pigeons is the best way to ensure their health and performance. Probiotics and prebiotics are essential supplements for maintaining a healthy digestive system, which is essential for the overall health and performance of racing pigeons. By paying attention to the supplements you use and the nutrition you provide, you can help your racing pigeons rise to new levels of performance.

Olimpiu Ilea, top results with CEST Pharma products!

The 2020 season brought Olimpiu Ilea other important results. At the end of the competitional season, the pigeon fancier from Alba will be able to add to his records the 2nd place in Fond Young county, 1st place in As Maraton Young county, 1st place in Marathon Young county, 1st place in Marathon Grand Prix Young and 1st place in Berlin National county.

Olimpiu Ilea: “At the National exhibition in Brașov I bought, together with a friend, several CEST Pharma products”

One of the “secrets” of such a productive season was the supplements and treatments produced by CEST Pharma. Throughout the season, Olimpiu Ilea’s pigeons were treated, prepared and recovered only with the products related to the CEST Pharma brand, a more than winning choice. “At the national exhibition in Brasov, I bought, together with a friend, several CEST Pharma products. I bought and used Sedo Plus, Electrolit and Protein Plus during the season, and as treatments I used Ri Special, Respiratory Plus, Tricoplus and, last but not least, I used Balance supplements. In addition to the small amount I had to pay for these products, their effectiveness was maximum. I do not use too many treatments, but when it was needed and I intervened with treatment, the results were seen immediately. For example, this year we had a small problem with trichomoniasis in my breeding loft. I used Tricoplus, and after five days of treatment, my pigeons were healthy again”, Olimpiu Ilea explained.

Olimpiu Ilea: “I would not give up Protein Plus, Electrolit and Sedo Plus”

Without reservations, of all the products he has used so far, Olimpiu Iliea declares himself most satisfied with those produced by CEST Pharma. For a successful competition season, pigeon fancier Olimpiu Ilea considers the Protein Plus, Sedo Plus and Electrolit supplements indispensable. “I was very satisfied with everything I used at CEST Pharma, but if I had to choose, I would not give up Protein Plus, Sedo Plus and Electrolit, but neither the treatments for respiratory problems and trichomoniasis. We could see that the pigeons tolerate these supplements and treatments very well and respond very well after administration. In the future I will use all these products. I even had a discussion with several colleagues from the association, to whom I recommended these supplements and they will also use them starting with the next season “, said the same breeder.


Fly Power – Probably the best race conditioner!!!

There are products for athletes, humans or pigeons, which greatly increase the performance due to the composition created by specialists that understand the functioning of the body and know how to enhance the effects of supplements.

This is how we designed Fly Power, in collaboration with Dr. Irina Bunescu, perhaps the best conditioner for pigeons of all time. It is specially made to improve performance and increase pigeon’s sport life by providing nutritional elements that build and strengthen a healthy body making it resistant to physical exertion, fatigue, stress and illness.

Fly Power contains a complex of carbohydrates, with different metabolic rate, which are consumed sequentially during physical exertion and, as one of them is depleted, the next will come into action, so that it permanently provides the necessary energy throughout the race. It has a higher rate of fat metabolism. The carbohydrates present in the formula will be converted by the liver into fat, the main fuel for sustained flight, and this is very important because in birds the production of fat from fructose metabolism is the most efficient compared to other carbohydrates and birds have a high storage capacity of fat, as energy reserve, compared to other vertebrates.

Fly Power contains natural anti-inflammatory substances that have the role of maintaining the integrity of the joints. It maintains muscle-joint functionality through the essential constructive components of the structure of articular cartilage, bones, ligaments and tendons with an effect in combating the inflammatory effects that occur as a result of sport activities. At the same time, it restores tissues that suffered injuries during physical effort.

Fly Power provides protection to the immune system:

  • In the intestine through the action of natural yeast cultures
  • At the white blood cells level due to beta-glucan, which is an immunomodulator that increases the activity of macrophages and neutrophils, intervenes in the process of phagocytosis, activates T and B lymphocytes and stimulates the production of gamma-interferon.

Fly Power improves vital functions by correcting liver disorders that occur due to intense or prolonged exertion. It promotes the elimination of toxins through its anti-oxidant properties, contributes to the regeneration of liver cells and repair old lesions, and helps fight inflammation of the bile ducts and fat infiltration in the liver. It maintains the functionality of the cardiovascular system by ensuring optimal oxygenation of all tissues.

Fly Power stimulates the growth of quality plumage due to sulfur rich substances, an essential compound in the production of keratin and collagen which are elementary proteins for the skin, plumage and claws.

Helps maintain a healthy liver by improving nutrient absorption and provides a quick recovery after illness.

 Administration: 5 g (1 measure) per 1 kg of food, as follows:

– During mating, molting and rearing periods: 2-3 times a week

– Before the competition: 2 – 6 administrations before the day of the flight, depending on the distance

– After returning from the race: 2-3 times a week.

In the cold season, in severe cases of recovery or due to nutritional deficiencies, it is administered for 30 to 45 days, to restore organic function.
