hope i didn't offense anyone but no worries, these can still be fed to the hamsters for normal "enjoyment' for them so it still wun be a waste..

just like human drinking yakult but if really wanna get the good amount of good bacteria for someone who has a real tummy issue, yakult will not be able to help at all..

hope you all get what i mean..


Haha WN , no worries , I'm not that Petty ! :)

Thanks for ur info too, I got to learn something new !

Hey i also saw this Chia seeds! Don't know whether can hamsters take in so never try. Better stick to Winternite's safe and researched grains and seeds that are listed in her Hamsters diet list. Here are some info abour Chia seeds:

Today, many research studies has been done to prove the health benefits of chia seeds. We have learned many new things about these seeds. One of the best things about these seeds is that they are extremely nutritious, containing around 22% of protein, 35% of healthy fats (Omega 3, Omega 6), and around 25% of dietary fiber. Not only that, they also contain plenty of minerals and vitamins – A lot of calcium, potassium, and iron is found in these seeds.
These little seeds help you fight against many diseases and keep the immune system strong by helping the body to absorb fat soluble vitamins.
Many people use these seeds to provide relief from arthritis or diabetes (by absorbing sugar), decrease blood pressure, help with acid reflux, or just improve the general cardiac health.
Chia seeds can also be used by people who would like to lose weight, cleanse their colon, and get rid of the toxins. These seeds can also be used to tone your muscles. Some research shows that it can also improve your mental performance and allow you to have a better rest during the night.
Chia seeds can offer plenty of health benefits, but as with any other supplement, it should be used in normal quantities, some side effects are found if they are used in extremely large quantities (such as, lower the blood pressure too much) Chia seeds are easy to digest (easier than flax seeds) and are gluten and cholesterol free.

My parents take those chia seeds. Soak them overnight in a Tupperware in the fridge and they become these cute little bubbles that look like frog eggs.

actually need not have to be too worries about the sucrose in the bene bac plus can still feed to dwarf maybe just once or twice per week..??

the old bene bac also got sucrose actually just that in the ingredients list the sucrose is listed on the last few but this PLUS one is in the 3rd ingredients list so i believe it has higher %age than the non-plus one.. :)


as for the Dr Ohhira Probiotics, it is a very 'pure' probiotic that meant for human actually..

Eat raw by adding to your water or other drinks like fruit juice. According to my mum's packet can put on salad or bread also, essentially 'whatever rocks your boat' :P

P.s I double checked with mum, no need actually soak overnight, about 10-15 mins can turn the seeds into 'gel' already

Taken from: http://jeanrogers.hu...d-Drink-Recipes




Cook Time


Prep time: 1 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 16 min
Yields: 1 cup chia gel




Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 1-2 tablespoons chia seeds

  • Add the chia seeds to the water and mix them in well using a fork or whisk.
  • Use less chia seeds for a thin gel, and more chia seeds for a thick gel.
  • Allow the chia seeds to absorb the water for 10-15 minutes.
  • Periodically stir the chia seeds to prevent them from clumping up. Stirring and separating the chia seeds will allow them to absorb more liquid.
  • Add the chia gel to any of your favorite chia seed drinks or just drink it as is.
  • Store extra chia gel in the refrigerator in a sealed container for several days

colostrum or Madre Labs, Madre-C, Whole-Food Vitamin C.. :)

i choose this vitamin C is cos of the powder form easier to 'feed' to hamster or mixed with other supplement like colostrum..

you can refer to this link for more vitamin C if you're interested --> http://www.iherb.com...=0&y=0#p=1&sr=0

btw as for the chia seeds, i never really research into it and i am not a nutritionist so can't really advise if it is really good for anyone here..

as for hamsters, due to this is a herb seeds and may have some side effect if overdose so i will try not to feed since i dunno what amount will be consider overdose for small hamster.. =/
