GEMTHEPAX


500ml & 1,000ml bottles


The use of Gemthepax during the year is strongly recommend, especially during breeding and racing. it has been specially developed and carefully controlled to have a specific positive effect on the beneficial gut micro flora by providing essential nutrients in a highly bioavailable form. Independent studies carried out in several laboratories (including the world famous 'Institute de Pasteur in Paris') have shown that gemthepax is able to stimulate these beneficial species. Other independent studies carried out show that Gemthepax can stimulate and protect the beneficial gut cro-flora even during antibiotic therapy. Always use GEMTHEPAX if ever the loft requires the use of antibiotics. GEMTHEPAX is produced using a patented process to ensure a consistent product with high Bioactivity Coefficient. It is also backed by a extensive European research program. It can be seen therefore that the pedigree of GEMTHEPAX is second to none, but we all know that pedigrees are only pieces of paper. So what can you the fancier expect from using GEMTHEPAX ?

BREEDING:-         You will rear better youngsters when they are raised on GEMTHEPAX. The robustness and feather quality of Y.B.'s on weaning has to be seen to be appreciated. You will see the difference around the nest bowl, the quality of the droppings tells you that the birds are doing well. The parents show no stress from rearing, they are full of health and vigour. Very important for stock birds if you want to raise more than a couple of rounds. When weaning youngsters always put them on GEMTHEPAX for the first few days in the new loft. The stress of leaving their parents, being handled and put into a new section can more often than not send them backwards so the use of GEMTHEPAX is recommended at this time.

RACING:-         We firmly believe that using GEMTHEPAX during racing will give your birds the edge needed to reach the top. There are no magic potions that win races - you need good pigeons and good management first, and that's up to you the fancier. If you have these two qualities then the use of GEMTHEPAX will give you those extra yards that are the difference between being first and last. Use at the rate of 5ml per litre of drinking water 3/4 times a week during both racing and breeding. The rest of the year twice per week to keep the birds in top condition.

STRIKE II


YOU ONLY HAVE TO USE STRIKE ONCE TO SEE ITS EFFECT.     Strike has been the number 1 trouble shooter in thousands of lofts world wide for over a decade and has been one of the best selling products in the UK during this time. It has with out doubt stood the test of time.
However science moves on and so does our knowledge of our pigeons and we are now proud to introduce Strike II

You only have to use Strike II once to see it’s effects. It’s not an antibiotic but a unique combination of natural plant derived sulphur containing compounds and avian specific lactic acid bacteria. The bugs in Strike are avian specific and have been selected on their ability to colonise the intestinal tissues of pigeons. The other component, Allicin was shown to be effective against a whole range of bad bacteria by amongst others ‘an independent trial at the Porton Down Research Establishment’.

We have now added a prebiotic, natural sugars called Fructooligosaccharides. These sugars are resistant to digestion by the bird but are used exclusively by specific probiotic organisms (those included in Strike II ) allowing them to compete with and thereby excluding disease-producing bacteria in the intestines. Research has shown that these sugars can improve the probiotic effect within the birds gut by 2-4 times.
We have also added the very important amino acid L-Glutamine a major source of cell energy; it carries nitrogen in body tissues. It also helps preserve muscle mass during trauma. In addition Glutamine stimulates the immune system and promotes maintenance and repair of the gastro-intestinal tract.

When would you as a pigeon fancier use Strike II ? Weekly at least once or twice to keep the pigeons gut in optimal condition. If the birds droppings become loose, which all lofts suffer from at various times of the year, usually when the birds are under some kind of stress. Breeding, ill health and of course racing are some of the times stress can become a real problem. During this time Strike II comes into play. At the first sign of problems reach for Strike II.

If a loft has problems and antibiotics are/have been used (always use Gemthepax at the same time)
Give the birds 3– 4 days on Strike II to help reseed the gut. This ensures that the bad bugs don’t get a chance to establish themselves. Strike II should be used every time the birds come back from a race, this is important because birds can often bring problems back as they have come into close contact with other birds, Remember the old saying ‘ You are only as clean as your dirtiest club member’. How very true that saying is, fanciers should be on their guard in this day and age as there is so much disease around, especially with Young Birds.

TRIKANOX


Trikanox represents a significant step forward in pigeon healthcare and provides fanciers with a totally natural product containing three powerful active ingredients which work together to boost the pigeons defences against diseases. Two of these properties have been shown by independent research to exhibit anti-protozoal and anti fungal properties.


Active Component 1 - Mixed Alkaloids

The first component of TRIKANOX is a mixture of plant Alkaloids with the dominant one being Berberine, which has been scientifically proven to have extensive activity in preventing the growth of many micro-organisms including protozoa such as Trichomonas.


Active Component 2 - Allicin

The second active component of TRIKANOX is allicin. This non antibiotic sulphur containing plant ingredient is now recognised as having a dramatic inhibitory effect on a wide range of micro-organisms including protozoa.


Active Component 3 - Echinacosides

The plant family Echinacea has long been associated with beneficial effects on the immune system. Scientific evidence is now showing that certain components within the plant are largely responsible for these effects. The end result is that the Echinacosides can boost the pigeons normal defence mechanisms.

FLIGHT FUEL

Flight Fuel is unique in providing the most important multiple co-factors which are essential to the maximum release of sustained power in the racing pigeon.   FLIGHT FUEL contains five essential co-factors to the "energy pathway". Each of these act almost like "spark plugs" along the energy chain, ensuring it keeps moving at an optimum rate.It would be very often pointless to try to improve energy efficiency and hence performance by targeting one particular point in the chain, as all that will happen is that an additional deficiency somewhere else in the chain will then become the limiting factor.

FLIGHT FUEL targets all major points along the energy chain

PROGEM-PLUS

A UNIQUE TRIPLE ACTION PRODUCT - Beta 1,3 Glucans are specific factors which help support the immune system of the racing pigeon. In addition Progem contains Elderberry, Propolis and Allicin all of which help ward off disease challenges which can occur in the most hygienic conditions.

A Complete spectrum of amino acids that are a rich source of B vitamins required by racing Pigeons to maximise performance with Fructooligosaccharides natural sugars that feed the ‘good bacteria’ in the birds gut, but are not readily available for the bad bugs.

Progem is designed to either be fed on the corn, or can be used in the drinkers. Simply sprinkle I scoop over 1 kilo of damped corn, or scoop into 2 litres of water.

Strongly recommended after any treatments given to birds

Use twice per week for race team, especially YB’s were the stress of training and racing can quickly bring on YB sickness if the fancier is not observant.

Try Progem for three days and see the difference it makes to the droppings.

ENERGY OIL

Twice the Calorific value of Glucose/Carbohydrates due to having a mixture of coconut and palm kernel oils that have been extra refined and purified.

It is a clear oily fat with little odour or taste and fortified with vitamin E to ensure maximum anti-oxidant effects.

This unique mixture of fatty acids ensures quick metabolism (used efficiently by the body of the bird),which means there is a reduced amount of fat deposited and it has a calorific value of 8Kcal/ compared to glucose/carbohydrates which have 4Kcal/g.

Energy Oil also has different absorption and metabolism properties so as not to interfere with glucose/carbohydrate or other fat metabolisms, unlike other fats and Oils.

Gem Energy Oil is more readily digested, absorbed and metabolised and is instantly available for the bird when there is a need for large amounts of energy during racing, breeding and recuperation.



Simply mix 3ml per kg of corn 3 times per week.

GARDEX

Gardex has been developed by Gem Supplements in collaboration with some of Europe's leading researchers on garlic. The following have been reported in scientific literature as the major properties of garlic.

* Anti microbial activity

* Detoxification and anti antidioxodent activity

* Reduction of serum lipids

* Blood thinning or anti - coagulant activity

Of these the most important to the pigeon fancier are the antimicrobial, detoxification, and blood thinning activities, as these will have the effect of enhancing performances from pigeons. gardex also contains added Vitamin C to boost overall conditioning of the birds.

Simply add to drinking water

ELECTRO-B

A highly effective and bioavailable liquid supplement which helps balance the body electrolytes (salts) in the pigeons.


Body salts are essential to help maintain and replace lost body fluids, especially during hot weather and racing.  Electro - B also contains B group Vitamins which are required for growth, metabolism, skin, blood (anti body production) digestion and the nervous system.  Strongly recommended during the racing season, especially when the weather is hot.  Young birds are prone to get over excited and can quickly become dehydrated.  Also use when birds are experiencing loose or wet droppings.

Use 5ml per 2.5 litres of water
