Repashy SuperCal MeD, 6 oz
Captive reptile diets are often low in calcium, which can cause health problems related to calcium deficiency. When reptiles don't receive adequate UVB lighting, they can also become vitamin D deficient. Reptiles that don't get enough calcium and/or vitamin D can develop life-threatening Metabolic Bone Disease (MBD).
Repashy SuperCal MeD is a micro-fine calcium supplement powder with high levels of vitamin D — 11,340 IU/kg. This makes it a suitable regular calcium supplement for use with reptiles that don't have UVB lighting in their enclosure or frequent access to unfiltered sunlight, but have low vitamin D requirements or receive most of their vitamin D from whole prey.
Repashy's calcium carbonate is mined from the Mohave Desert in California, where it was deposited 300 million years ago during the Mississippian Age as a large graveyard of marine animals. This calcium is micro ground to an average size of 3.5 microns, enabling it to stick extremely well to feeder insects.
Note: All reptiles can benefit from exposure to levels of high-quality UVB lighting appropriate to their species. It is highly advisable to provide UVB whenever possible. Browse our selection of the best UVB bulbs here!
