Calcium deficiency is a major problem with captive reptiles and amphibians. Maintaining a correct calcium:phosphorous (Ca:P) ratio in the diet of 1:1 to 1.5:1 is equally important nutritionally as adequate calcium intake. Commonly used food items such as Crickets, Mealworms and Mice contain high levels of Phosphorous and low levels of calcium.
Ultimate Calcium assists in balancing the Ca:P ratio by producing a natural Phosphorous free calcium source together with Vitamin D3 to assist in absorption from the intestinal tract.
It is recommended that you combine Ultimate Calcium with Ultimate Vitamins for an equalised supplement for all reptiles and amphibians.
