Premium complete multivitamin powder, highly palatable nutritional booster loaded with all essential amino acids, vitamins, minerals and natural colour enhancers to keep your animals healthy.
Many reptiles’ nutritional needs are not being met simply because of the captive diet we feed them. For those that follow any of our social media, you know that we strongly advocate a mixed natural diet and recommend you use this philosophy in your approach to animal care. We also know that in this modern age we have access to good food at affordable prices and because of intense farming methods it is not as nutrient dense as the food our animals would consume as part of a naturalistic diet. This is also true of commercial feeder insect production; the facilities and production methods we have witnessed may be extremely good, however, the insects produced lack the full nutrient profile of their wild-roaming counterparts. This is generally down to the soil nutrient quality and the vegetation that grows in it. Natural soil is made from four basic components: inorganic minerals from the natural erosion of rocks, organic matter, such as decaying vegetation and decomposing animals, water and a mixture of gaseous elements that make up air. This natural soil enriches flora that grows in it, which in turn is consumed by wild insects and reptiles fulfilling their natural dietary needs. This is where the other two products in the range, Calcium Ultra and Insect Food plug the gaps in the captive diet. When used in conjunction with suitable lighting and heating products this should fulfil the needs of your pet.
See Calcium Ultra page for ingredients.
Brewer’s yeast is useful for digestive health; contains amino acids, minerals and is packed with B-complex vitamins include, B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (pyridoxine), B9 (folic acid), and B7 (biotin).
Natural Red Clay
Natural red clay or Pelagic red clay accumulates in the deepest and most remote areas of the ocean. It covers 38% of the ocean floor and accumulates more slowly than any other sediment type as they settle through the water column. These sediments consist of eolian dust, clay minerals, volcanic ash, residue of siliceous microfossils, accessory constituents found in red clay including meteorite dust and aquatic skeletal mass.
These clays are very mineral rich and include a wealth of trace elements.
Mycoproteins are considered ‘vegetable’ in origin and are derived from fungi. They contain all nine essential amino acids and fall into the category of being a source of first-class protein, comparable with other protein sources such as meat and fish.
Mycoprotein is a high-protein food with a high fiber content and is low in fat with no cholesterol.
Kelp grows in the "underwater forests" of shallow oceans and has been declared "the most mineralized vegetable on earth.” Seaweeds provide a rich and balanced source of key macro and micronutrients, antioxidants, polyunsaturated fatty acids, with 11 vitamins and 46 minerals and more than 15 amino acids.
Kelp health benefits are well documented for enhancing bone density, fighting inflammation, cancer prevention and boosting immunity.
Algae use carotenoids to make provitamin A
Spirulina with DHA
This is one of the algae that we have specially grown for us. It is extremely nutrient dense, containing almost the full spectrum of B-vitamins which are essential to the health of the central nervous system and the brain. High in many other essential vitamins and minerals, the nutrients in spirulina are highly bioavailable and easily broken down by the digestive system.
Containing all 9 essential amino acids, Spirulina is high in net protein utilisation, meaning it is 85% - 95% digestible – with its amino acids being delivered to the body for almost instant absorption.
Uniquely, Spirulina also contains the phytochemical phycocyanin, the pigment that gives it its blue-green hue. Often referred to as "The Wonder Molecule”, studies of phycocyanin have shown it has extremely high antioxidant activity and has powerful anti-inflammatory properties.
Gram for gram, Spirulina may be the single most nutritious food on the planet, it contains 26 x the calcium of milk.
Dunaliella salina is a type of micro-algae especially found in sea salt fields. Revered for its antioxidant activity and ability to create large amounts of high-quality carotenoids.
This is another alga that is grown exclusively for us, under license by the French government, in a protected area of outstanding natural beauty. It takes several months to grow and has a limit on how much can be harvested at any one time.
Due to the abundance of beta-carotene, which is a powerful antioxidant as well as a vitamin A precursor, D.Salina is a popular pro-vitamin A food supplement for both human and animal use.
Carotenoids act as antioxidants but are also crucial for eyesight by adding clear vison and preventing damage by absorbing near ultraviolet and blue light.
The best-known carotenoid, Carotene, gives carrots their bright orange color. The pink colour of flamingos and salmon come from carotenoids. Flamingos, salmon, shrimp and lobster get their pigments from consuming algae or algae eaters.
Algae contains eight times the carotene provided by carrots.
Carrots contain the best-known carotenoid, carotene, which gives them their bright orange colour.
Carrots are packed with vitamins and minerals and are rich in beta carotene, which your body converts into vitamin A. This nutrient promotes good vision and is important for growth, development, and immune function.
They also contain B7 vitamin Biotin, formerly known as vitamin H, which plays an important role in fat and protein metabolism. A group of related vitamins, B6, is involved in the conversion of food into energy.
Interestingly they also have Vitamin K1 which is important for blood clotting and bone health and good levels of potassium, which is an essential element and important for many bodily functions.
This is probably the most talked about reptile supplement in recent years, and rightly so, as it contains a wealth of nutrients with many benefits, over 250 biologically active components and is rich in minerals and antioxidants.
Papaya is rich in fiber, Vitamin A, C, E and antioxidants like beta-carotene which helps prevent damage from free radicals.
Silicic acid is a natural compound of the mineral substance silicon and oxygen. It can bind to a variety of harmful and toxic substances, including pathogens. This renders them harmless so that they can be removed naturally through the intestines and out of the body.
Silicic acid exists naturally in seawater as well as sand, quartz and even the human body. Orthosilic acid is found in tissues, bones, tendons, kidneys and the liver, and is necessary for life.
This mineral content is available in food sources such as beets, brown rice, bell peppers, soybeans, alfalfa and leafy green vegetables such as kale and whole grains.
Although we use mango mainly as a natural attractant, it also contains a wealth of nutrients and antioxidants.
Mangos contain over 20 different vitamins and minerals, one serving provides 35% of your daily vitamin A, 100% of your daily vitamin C and 10% of your daily vitamin B6.
