Vitamin A Plus
MICRO-FINE VITAMIN A SUPPLEMENT
Micro Fine Vitamin A Supplement for Reptiles and Amphibians.
Contains Preformed Vitamin A as well as Natural Ingredients which
provide Beta Carotene.
INFORMATION: Preformed Vitamin A (Retinol) is an essential fat
soluble vitamin that in nature comes from animal sources only. Plant
sources of Vitamin A, such as Beta Carotene and other Carotenoids, must
be converted into this active animal form to be utilized by the body.
Carotenoids can be converted into Retinol by some species given optimal
conditions, but it has been shown that deficiencies can develop if
Preformed Vitamin A is not directly provided in the Retinol form. This
Supplement provides Preformed Vitamin A in the form of a spray dried
water dispersible Retinyl Acetate powder in combination with natural
sources of Beta Carotene derived from algae.
GUARANTEED ANALYSIS: Vitamin A 2,000,000 IU/lb.
This product contains high levels of preformed Vitamin A
(Retinol). As a regular supplement, it should not be used more than
once per week by “dusting” insects, or sprinkling on fresh vegetables at
a level of one teaspoon per pound. Retinol and other fat soluble
vitamins can build up in the body. Prolonged over supplementation can
lead to toxicity and overdose or kill your specimens.
Refrigeration will extend freshness.
