The sensitive digestive system of pet birds and Parrots can be very easily upset. Stress can increase the risk of infection by harmful bacteria. Potent Brew works so well because it contains bacteria that act immediately once they get into the gut. It also contains enzyme components for active food digestion.
If you want to add Potent Brew to water, then it is best to use bottled water and here is why:
Tap water would be fine, as long as there isn’t a lot of chlorine in it, as this will kill the good bacteria in the Potent Brew.
Bottled water would be better, but you do need to be careful with the type of bottled water. So try not to use distilled water, as again this would suck out all of the nutrients from the good bacteria and then they would die.
Also try not to use bottled water that says “pure” in the title, as this could be reverse osmosis water and would be the same as distilled water.
If your birds are eating moist foods or an eggfood, then it would be more economical for you and guaranteed that your birds would take it by adding it to these foods.
Potent Brew stimulates efficient gut function and improves the bird’s ability to absorb nutrition, therefore it contributes to bringing adult birds into breeding condition. When young chicks hatch they have no bacteria in the gut. They rely on their parents to supply them with their food. Potent Brew in the food starts the chicks digestive system off very quickly ensuring rapid early growth and excellent resistance to otherwise dangerous digestive issues.
