Rep-Cal Vitamin A Plus
Rep-Cal Vitamin A Plus Ingredients

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.

INGREDIENTS: Calcium Carbonate and Cellulose Powder (as carriers), Algae Meal (Chlorella), Vitamin A Acetate, Rosemary Extract, Mixed Tocopherols (preservative).

DIRECTIONS: 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.

Arcadia not recommended

Note, Arcadia does not specifically call out their vitamins for use with dart frogs. These newer lines should be used with caution as they have not been widely tested in the dart frog hobby.

So the EarthPro-A is basically a Calcium mineral supplement with no vitamin D3, which means its for UVB backing animals.
