Spirulina Supplement

Postby Longfellow777 » Sun Nov 29, 2020 1:55 pm

Has anyone ever used Spirulina? its a green powder some vendors sell. I got it from reptilianarts.com
Says its good to dust on bugs feed to your colony also has benefits for our birds. We have birds aswell so thought it would be a good buy don't know much about it but for the price and amount i figured wouldn't hurt to have around I've searched the internet and found one thing about it making the colors on someones beardie more vivid and vibrant so I'm excited to use but was hoping i could get some input i have her supplement down and want to know how to fit it in. Does anyone know of this product its a plant based protein I'm not sure something like that lol

Hello,

Spirulina is considered a "super food" & safe to give as a supplement to reptiles.
It is rich is nutrients, trace elements/minerals & has non purine sources of protein.
You can definitely use it several times per week if you would like, quite safely. Just
use a small pinch or scoop (1/8th of a teaspoon) on the greens/veggies or mixed in
with water for your dragon.
