Nutrobal is a vitamin/mineral supplement specifically formulated as a high calcium “balancer ” for insectivorous reptiles and birds, to assist in correcting the inadequate levels of calcium present in live insectivorous foods such as crickets and mealworms. The Calcium:Phosphorus ratio is very important in ensuring healthy bone growth and reproductive function and this potent supplement with a Ca:P ratio of 46:1 is extremely valuable in correcting deficient diets. It is particularly important for those species fed primarily on insects such as mealworms or locusts, used as a dusting powder. Some species fed mainly lean meat also benefit, as will growing chelonia which need calcium for their shells and the larger lizards and crocodilia for their normal bone development. Large lizards and Chelonia also benefit from ACE-High.
Contents per gram 200mg calcium & 150IU vitamin D3, plus vitamins A C E K B1 B2 B6 B12 folic, nicotinic & pantothenic acids, biotin choline niacin and minerals P Na Fe Co I Mn Zn Se Cu. NUTROBAL isn’t just calcium, the vitamin D3 is vital as without it the calcium goes straight through the animal. NUTROBAL is a calcium balancer and multivitamin product. A lot of time went into every stage, including selecting a particle size which ‘sticks’ to crickets etc without getting into their spiracles and killing them. We have maintained this carefully for over 20 years, and have launched Calci Dust containing the same calcium we use in Nutrobal. The product has been used by pretty much every reptile vet in the UK and the vast majority of zoos keeping reptiles.
