Vitamin Supplement for Red Coloration in Birds

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 synthesizing 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 carotenoid Beta-carotene.

To be used when new feathers are growing in
