Concentrated vitamin and mineral supplement

Alpamin: high-quality

vitamin and mineral

supplement

The natural habitat of alpacas and llamas is the plateaus of South America. These plateaus are sunny, with varied vegetation and a climate and environment quite different than on the European continent. To help keep the animals in optimum health on this side of the world, alpaca veterinarian Thijs Flahou developed a combination of vitamins and minerals to simulate the positive natural effects. Alpamin consists of tasty pellets that can win over any animal!

Only the very best ingredients and most modern technologies are used to produce Alpamin. We combine, for example, different forms of the same mineral in order to significantly increase intestinal absorption.

Why is Alpamin a must?

Alpamin is not intended to provide energy or proteins. In other words, it is not a concentrate, but a well-balanced vitamin and mineral supplement that keeps animals in optimum health. If this supplement is not used, the deficiencies can lead to health problems in both the short and long term, such as weak bones, fertility problems, weak crias, cria death, skin problems and overall lower immune function. Make no mistake, this supplement is necessary for every llama and alpaca, not only crias or pregnant and lactating dams! For adult alpacas and llamas, a daily dose of Alpamin is sufficient to never have to administer vitamin and mineral injections. 

The advantages of
Alpamin
The advantages of Alpamin
Healthy & strong bones thanks to Vitamin D

Alpamin contains a coated, heat-resistant form of vitamin D. This variant is highly stable and remains biologically available for absorption through the intestinal wall.

High zinc content for healthy fleece & skin

We use three different types of zinc, each of which is absorbed by the intestines in a different way.

Optimal fertility with selenium

Selenium promotes optimal fertility and the vitality of newborn crias. Alpamin contains both inorganic and organic selenium.

Healthy skin, fibre and nails thanks to biotin

Biotin not only keeps skin, fibre and nails healthy, but also stimulates milk production.

Sulphur-containing amino acids for high-quality wool fibres

These amino acids provide sulphur, which is then absorbed by the wool fibres. Sulphur is beneficial because it is an essential component of wool fibres. An optimal sulphuric level helps safeguard good fibre structure.

Good calcium to phosphorous ratio for healthy bone development

An ideal calcium to phosphorous ratio of 2:1 regulates healthy and strong bone development and good energy efficiency.

High-fibre raw materials

To support gut flora, we use high-fibre raw materials instead of starchy grain products.

Tasty pellets

Alpamin is packed with vitamins and minerals and can also be easily eaten by crias.

Did you know...

the type of feed that an alpaca or llama requires depends strongly on the physiological phase, age and living conditions of the animal? It is primarily the protein and energy needs that fluctuate. A separate dose of Alpamin makes sure the animals are in good basic health!
