NEKTON-Rep-Calcium-Pur+ is a highly effective calcium supplement with minerals, enriched with trace elements without vitamin D3 to prevent calcium deficiency and its secondary diseases. It supports optimum development and maintenance of the skeleton and promotes a healthy calcium metabolism in all reptiles and amphibians.
NEKTON-Rep-Calcium-Pur+ does not contain vitamin D3 and specially developed for animals that are sufficiently supplied with UVB light in the terrarium or free-living animals with sufficient exposure to the sun (about 10 hours). These can produce the body‘s own vitamin D and therefore do not need an extra portion of the vitamin D3 in the product. Otherwise our NEKTON-Rep-Calcium+D3 is recommended.
Reptiles and amphibians need less food than mammals because they have relatively low energy requirements. It is therefore more important that the food contains all the necessary nutrients. This also includes minerals and trace elements. In addition to quality food, these substances must be added.
0.25 g NEKTON-Rep-Calcium-Pur+ per 1 kg of body weight daily, or 1.5 g once a week. One level measuring spoon (enclosed) corresponds to 1 g NEKTON-Rep-Calcium-Pur+.
Not soluble in water, suitable for pollination of food / feed animals / green food.
This supplementary feed should only be fed to reptiles to 5 % of the daily ration because of the over complete feed higher content of trace elements.
NEKTON-Rep-Calcium-Pur+ should be stored dry and out of sunlight, between 15° and 25°C.
DO NOT STORE IN THE FRIDGE!!!
Keep away from children
Disinfect drinking vessels and food containers daily with NEKTON-Desi-Care to guarantee hygienic and clean feed!
One of the most important supplements is calcium, which is very important not only for eggshell and bone formation, but also for other vital processes (such as muscle contractions). The calcium content in the feed is usually very low. The food insects in particular lead to a calcium deficiency if they are not supplemented.
Since the animals also take up additional calcium in the wild, it must also be offered in terrarium. Females and growing animals in particular have a higher calcium requirement.
In order for the body to be able to utilize calcium, reptiles and amphibians need vitamin D. This can be supplied through appropriate supplements or can be formed in the skin of the animal with the help of UVB radiation. There is no need to provide supplemental vitamin D through the food if the animal is offered the right amount and quality of UVB radiation. If healthy animals are sufficiently exposed to UVB radiation, there is usually no vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin precursors ingested with food (these are found primarily in plants, muscle and adipose tissue of animals) are converted under the action of sunlight (or UVB radiation) and heat in the skin into a precursor of vitamin D3 and finally in the kidney tissue into the active form of vitamin D3.
The required amount of UVB radiation (intensity, lighting duration) depends on the animal species. Desert-dwelling species, for example, require much higher levels of UVB radiation. With a sufficient supply of vitamin D, optimal calcium absorption in the digestive tract can be expected.
