Repashy SuperPig is a Carotenoid Supplement designed to enhance the diet and appearance of Reptiles, Fish, Amphibians and Birds. Repashy SuperPig contains different carotenoids, which are organic pigments that cannot be formed by animals, and are generally produced by plants, algae, or fungi. Carotenoids act as antioxidants, can be converted into vitamins, and even absorb harmful light in the eye. Most notably of all, carotenoids are often absorbed into the body and increase the amount of visible red, orange, or yellow coloration in a variety of animals, reptiles and amphibians included. Carotenoids may not have visible effects in all species, but when used correctly, are beneficial to your pet's health. At the very least, carotenoids are a great source of antioxidants.
There are several carotenoids commonly used as color enhancers. Quality color enhancers will have many different carotenoids from different sources.
Alpha Carotene - a precurser to vitamin A
Astaxanthan - a red pigment responsible for the red color of salmon and cooked shellfish.
Beta-Carotene - a very important precurser to vitamin A
Beta Cryptoxanthin - an important antioxidant and provitamin A
Canthaxanthin - a red pigment used to increase the pink/red color in farm raised salmon
Capsanthin - a red pigment, present in paprika in conjunction with Capsorubin
Capsorubin - a red pigment, present in paprika in conjunction with Capsanthin
Lutein - a yellow pigment, present in many leafy green vegetables
Lycopene - an orange/red pigment present in tomatoes and other yellow, orange, or red vegetables
