Cria Vitamin AD3E 60ml

Vitamine D for crias

In the thin air of the Andean mountains, there is a lot of UV radiation. Alpacas and llamas in this natural habitat produce sufficient vitamin D in their skins. The alpaca pastures in Europe are at a much lower altitude, so the UV radiation is less intense. In addition, there are far fewer hours of sunlight in Europe during the winter, so the natural production of vitamin D3 by the skin during this period is lower.

Vitamin D regulates calcium-phosphorus metabolism, and is essential for a healthy bone growth. Deficiency leads to rickets. Especially growing animals between 2 and 12 months of age have an increased requirement for vitamin D. For them it is essential to supplement vitamin D during the winter months through this paste. Adult alpacas and llamas only need a daily dosis of Alpamin to maintain their blood vitamin D levels.
