That's a good breakdown from a reputable source. One of the big reasons I use and recommend his products quite often.

Hello,

Great article from the reptile magazine. I completely agree.
I wish the information got out to more people regarding the importance of balance.
Thanks for posting it.

The main consequence of vitamin D toxicity is a buildup of calcium in your beardie's blood (hypercalcemia) and Hypervitaminosis D when too much vitamin D is ingested.

It's worth noting that while the discussion points based on other publications are probably quite relavent the UVb portion of the above paper ( https://www.vitamindwiki.com/dl959 ) failed to be replicated recently. ( http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1 ... 12728/full ).

None of the animals in the control group had detectable levels of 25(OH)D3, whereas in the Arcadia group, all animals had levels above the detection limit of 4 nmol/L (Table 3). This group also had a higher mean 25(OH)D3 plasma concentration than the four other treatments, which were all close to the limit of detection.
