Default Suggestions for supplementing main food

Currently our 'Keets are being fed Lafeber's Parakeet Pellets Premium Daily Diet (https://amzn.com/B003WRHPLU) at the suggestion of our avian vet after originally being on the Nutri-Berries (https://amzn.com/B0002ARFNS).

Having a bird with fatty liver disease, I am doing whatever I can do optimize their meals to be the best and least-fattening as possible, and in addition to the above pellets, was thinking of adding one or more of the following to the 'mix'.

ZuPreem Fruitblend: https://amzn.com/B003SLM11Y
ZuPreem Natural: https://amzn.com/B001LK3E1U
Kaytee Forti Diet Egg-Cite: https://amzn.com/B000HHSIUK

Would one or more of these be good additions to their current lineup?

I don't recommend using Kaytee.
The company has had too many issues with salmonella and bird product recalls in the past for me to feel comfortable with that brand.

I use both the ZuPreem Fruity Pellets and the Zupreem Natural Pellets.

The natural have no added dyes and probably less sugar than the Fruity Pellets.

I recommend ZuPreem, to prevent fatty liver disease in my girl I put her on that brand and she's been doing wonderful!
Also milk thistle as mentioned by Randy is a great holistic supplement, and make sure they have lots of veggies! Tumeric is great for the liver too, I sprinkle a little on the food once or twice a week

I've read about Milk Thistle, I've just never been sure how it's given to them. Is it a liquid or pellet or what?
