Nekton B-Komplex 35g B-vitamiinivalmiste linnuille ja matelijoille.
Nekton B-Komplex 35g on tarkoitettu ensisijaisesti linnuille B-vitamiinilisäksi, mutta sitä voidaan käyttää myös muilla eläimille.
HUOM! B-vitamiinilisäys on erittäin tärkeää raakaa kalaa syövillä kilpikonnilla ja käärmeillä, koska kalan sisältämä tiaminaasi tuhoaa B1-vitamiinia.
A Vitamin B supplement for all kinds of Birds
Vitamins are complex organic compounds essential in a bird's
organism for maintenance, growth and reproduction.
The members of the water-soluble vitamin B complex are vital
for a bird as parts of the enzyme systems that catalyze the
metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Those in the
NEKTON-B-KOMPLEX are interbalanced to complement and
support each other.
Although there are a number of vitamin B food supplements
already on the market, there is none especially suited to the
requirements of a bird. We felt this was a task for us at NEKTON
as we had already developed and produced a wide range of
special supplements with a bird's health in mind. Our experience
and the proven success of past products have enabled us to
find just the right combination and blend of vitamins to meet a
A vitamin B deficiency can lead to a number of different reactions
in the organism. These are particularly apparent during times
of stress, meaning a bird owner should take care to make not
only NEKTON-S as usual, but also NEKTON-B-Komplex available
to his birds daily.
Animal requirements for Thiamine, or vitamin B1, vary in
proportion to the intake of energy and increase when the diet
contains a higher amount of carbohydrates, as this vitamin is
needed for the breakdown of carbohydrates into lipids. If the
diet contains a comparatively high percentage of protein, however,
then the share of vitamin B6 must be increased proportionally
to encourage the amino acid metabolism.
The vitamins of the B complex play an important role in the
smooth functioning of the nervous system and a deficiency
results in over-excitability, muscle contractions, uncoordinated
movements and even leads to death. One of the phenomena
of a vitamin B1 deficiency, for example, is the bending back of
a bird's head.
Caring bird owners will also find NEKTON-B-KOMPLEX
invaluable during illness, as the availability of the B vitamins
during treatment with antibiotics and sulfonamides is considerably
