NEKTON-R-BETA is a vitamin supplement to brighten colors, enhance plumage and
prevent colors fading.
Feathers are given their colors by the deposits of carotenoids, red and yellow
pigments/lipochromes, found in plants and the fatty tissues of animals.
Although the deposits are minute they are spread over the whole surface of the
feathers creating the various shades. Carotenoids are the most widely
distributed pigments in nature and are found in all parts of plants, even in
the green parts, where they are overshadowed by the preponderance of green
chlorophyll. The bird is not capable of synthesising carotenoids by itself
which means these color pigments must form part of the dietary intake.
NEKTON-R-BETA achieves splendid red coloring through the natural
carotenoid Beta-carotene. Especially effective on red parts of colored
canaries without affecting yellow plumage.
Ensure your bird is ready for that all-important show or exhibition by
adding NEKTON-R-BETA with its 13 vitamins, 6 trace elements, water-soluble
calcium, 18 indispensable amino acids and that valuable provitamin and
To be used when new feathers are growing in.
