L-Carnitine- Magnesium- Calcium Complex Powder for Racing Pigeons
The administration of Carmine causes less lactic acid to be produced in the muscles and the pigeon
suffers from fewer cramps. To burn fat, however, the organism also needs a lot of magnesium, which
is involved as a co-enzyme in the activation of over 300 enzymes.
Maybe you have seen sometimes pigeons coming home that are extremely tired and no longer can
reach their nest box? After several days they resume exercising, but we can see that they fly at an
angle, they can’t fly level. This is not a shortage of energy; it is a lack of calcium and magnesium.
Administering these two minerals will do wonders within a few days.
In addition, the vital mineral is responsible for the transfer of excitation from nerve to the muscle.
Sufficiently high magnesium levels in the muscle cell are a prerequisite for a functioning muscle
contraction and prevent muscle cramps and muscle soreness.
Furthermore, in the racing season both racing hens and cocks seems to get too little Calcium, which
is an important mineral needed for skeleton and muscle formation, movement of the muscles and for
functioning of many hormones and certain enzymes. As a results of the normal met shortage of
magnesium and calcium for racing pigeons, the Dutch nutritional expert Willem Mulder advices to
give additional Magnesium and Calcium to the racers in the racing season.
Since Pigeon Vitality’s L-Carnitine contains magnesium and calcium (CMCC), you will see the birds
improve before your eyes when you start to add this to the grain!
Add L-Carnitine-Magnesium-Calcium complex to the meals where the grain is rich in fat. Typically
this is the evening meal on the day of return, and the last days before sending to a race > 400 km.
At the return day from race, in the evening, high energy grain is given. This grain should preferably
be mixed with Turbo Flight (which contain short fatty acids which is rapidly adsorbed from the
intestines) and 2 heaped measure levels (̴ 2 teaspoons; 6 gram) of CMCC. Number of days to give
before race, depends on distance.
NOTE: The best oil to use in the days before race is Omega 3, as the unsaturated fats are the most
important for the red muscles. We recommend that you mix Omega 3 and CMCC the same number
of days that you add more energy rich grains to the pigeons.
Best time to use:
2 last days before basketing for 400-550 km
3-4 last days before 600-800 km
5-7 last days before > 900 km
