Brazil Nuts are the highest natural source of Selenium which has been found to be very important nutritionally for all African Parrots, especially African Greys. They contain decent amounts of Phosphorous, Potassium and Vitamin B. They are also a good source digestable protein and some of the fats that are beneficial to us and our birds - in limited quantities!
