Science recognizes three highly successful pathways for improving the immunity response in our birds. These pathways (or delivery systems) are laid out in my article (click here to read part 1). Two of these delivery systems are already available to the pigeon fancy through oligosacharide based products like Chisholm Trail and probiotic based products like Primalac and Health Gard. Recently, RacingPigeonMall introduced the third and most unique delivery system for building immunity and controling microbial infections with its Max Immune Plus product.
Show Stopper, takes the best of all three delivery systems for immune building and puts it in one super product for your use. See my FAQ section below for more information on the difference between Show Stopper and Max Immune Plus and whether you should use both or just one of these products.
The active ingredients in Show Stopper include:
Vitamins (A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, D3, E, K, Folic Acid and Biotin)
Select oligosacharides specifically tailored to capture entero-pathogens before they can attach to the intestinal lining of our birds. These unique oligosacharide chains function by "binding to" and then "flushing out" these pathogens before they can establish themselves in our bird's digestive tract.
The new "Bio-Fresh" Probiotic System for outstanding friendly bacteria protection
Pre-biotics to supply specialized nutrients for better friendly bacteria growth and effectiveness in protecting your birds, increases the probiotic effect in your birds by 2 - 4 fold
"Cocci-Gone" the proven "all natural" coccidiosis inhibitor
Specialized Amino-Acids / mineral complexes which are proven to regenerate scarred intestinal tissues restoring them healthy tissues which improves nutrient absorption and allows for better removal of toxins from the digestive system
Important mineral including: Calcium, Potassium, Phosphorous, Sodium, Magnesium, Iron, Zinc, Copper, Manganese, Chromium, Molybdenum, Selenium, Cobalt and many more
All amino acids are present along with important natural enzymes (Alpha Amylase, Protease, Lipase, Cellulase, Pectinase, and beta-Glucans) for better protein, carbohydrate, fat utilization, improved mineral absorbability, ammonia/urine treatment and toxin removal from the bird's systems.
Most importantly, this product contains a unique combination of immunity building ingredients not found anywhere else in the pigeon sport, including Immunoglobulins, T-cell activators, Glycoproteins, and antibodies for more than 19 specific disease-causing pathogens including; Rotavirus, Coronavirus, E coli, Clostridium, Salmonella, Paratyphoid, Streptococcus, Staphylococcus, Candida, H pylori, Cryptosporidium and many other pathogens.
You could spend hundreds of dollars on competitor's products (like Chisholm Trail's Oligosacharide based Health product, Primalac or Health Guard's probiotics based products, multiple antibiotic treatments, respiratory aids, coccidiostats, and still not be able to match the "All Natural" protection available in one container of Show Stopper.
While our competition recommends that you use their products on a daily bases, we recommend limiting your usage of Show Stopper to 2 - 3 times a week. The amazing synergy gained by combining the best of all three immunity building pathways into one super immunity delivery system, allows us to provide superior protection (through the Innate, Acquired and Passive Immunity pathways) with only two or three treatments a week compared to the other product's daily usage requirement. With Show Stopper, your birds are better protected, your cost are significantly reduced and you are free to use other products the rest of the week if you so choose. This is a win-win situation.
Everyone has their own system, one in which they feel most comfortable and confident with, we just try to simply this for you with our "All Natural" three-in-one immunity building product ~ Show Stopper!
Don't other pigeon health products also include probiotics? some do have probiotics and vitamin, minerals, and enzymes as well. However, Show Stopper has nearly 10 Times the probiotic count than most other products. Also, we do not use yeast media grown probiotics as we believe birds are more highly susceptible to yeast problems than are other animals.
I have concerns about pigeon health that are somewhat different than most other suppliers and have created what I feel is a better product utilizing additional immune response pathways to bring optimal condition and health to the birds. If you read my article (mentioned above) you will understand how important higher levels of probiotics can be to your bird's overall health. Basically, with Show Stopper, you get most everything found in the Chisholm Trail product, without the yeast culture, you also get increased amounts of probiotics as per the suggestion of Dr. John Kazmerziack, DVM (at the AU convention), and you get the three-in-one immunity building delivery system pioneered by RacingPigeonMall. Finally, you use our product twice a week on the feed not every day as other products recommend.
How is Show Stopper different from Max Immune Plus? When I created Max Immune Plus, I was looking to develop a product that could be used in the water as a preventive and during recovery from YB Sickness, Circovirus, Adenovirus, Enteritis, etc. A product that would destroys viruses, bacteria, yeast, fungus, allergens and other toxins. And, that contained antibodies against Rotavirus, Coronavirus, E coli, Clostridium, Salmonella, Paratyphoid, Streptococcus, Staphylococcus, Candida, H pylori, Cryptosporidium and many other pathogens.
Used once or twice a week, Max Immune Plus provides protection for your birds and greatly reduces or even eliminates the need for antibiotic usage throughout the season. However, I knew that there were a class of non water soluble ingredients including: certain oligosacharides, beta glucans, glycoproteins, glycolipids, and polysaccharides, that provided additional immune support not available in a water soluble product like Max Immune Plus.
What I have done with Show Stopper is to group in one product, these oligosacharides, beta glucans, glycoproteins, glycolipids, and polysaccharides, along with the "Cocci-Gone" product, and select chelated amino acids which are not soluble in water, into one product. I even include a totally different vitamin / mineral source than that used in Max Immune Plus.
The ingredients found in Max Immune Plus and the ingredients in Show Stopper are not the same. They are really separate stand alone immunity building products. Max Immune Plus is water soluble. Show Stopper has oligosacharides, beta glucans, glycoproteins, glycolipids, polysaccharides, digestive enzymes, a coccidia inhibitor and ingredients which repair damaged intestinal tissues which not found in Max Immune Plus. And, Show Stopper is meant to be sprinkled on the grain at the time of feeding.
Max Immune Plus utilizes two different sources to provide the specific antibodies against Rotavirus, Coronavirus, E coli, Clostridium, Salmonella, Paratyphoid, Streptococcus, Staphylococcus, Candida, H pylori, Cryptosporidium and many other pathogens. Show Stopper incorporates these same sources but has more Immunoglobulins, T-cell activators, and Glycoproteins while Max Immune Plus has more of the antibody sources in its approach. However the addition of the different probiotic strains, the oligosacharides, beta glucans, glycoproteins, glycolipids, polysaccharides and digestive enzymes, create favorable synergenic function, providing health results comparable to Max Immune Plus, yet at the same time, significantly different in delivery and utilization by the bird's immune system.
The ideal health program for our birds would incorporate both Max Immune Plus and Show Stopper within a weekly routine. Use Max Immune Plus once a week and Show Stopper twice a week. This is the ultimate health program for your birds! You get all the antibodies and Immune response pathways available in Max Immune Plus, plus you get the antibodies, oligosacharides and digestive enzymes found in Show Stopper. Between these two products you also get many different strains of friendly bacteria and a full spectrum of vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
Having these two products (one water soluble and one on the feed) gives you a choice. Either product provides you the protection you need and is a stand alone health product, but using both products during the week provides a broader spectrum of protection.
Here is my recommendation: Instead of using Max Immune Plus 1 - 2 times a week, or using Show Stopper 2 - 3 times a week, try using Max Immune Plus once a week (in the water) and Show Stopper once or twice a week (on the feed).
