NEKTON-R contains all essential vitamins, amino acids, minerals, the colorant Canthaxanthin and trace elements in balanced proportions. NEKTON-R prevents feather colors from fading and positively influences the natural shine and brightness of the whole plumage. Due to the vitamin complex contained within, the bird is supported through the entire molting/rearing process and additionally supplied with all important nutrients.
The colorant used (lipochrome) is identical to the natural substance and is thus physiologically safe. It is also used in the food industry to color food products. Carotinoides are of vital importance for colored feathers.
NEKTON-R is administered in the drinking water or soft feed at the beginning of molting/rearing until the end of molting or as soon as the bird’s color is fully restored. No other vitamin compound should be administered whilst using NEKTON-R.
Storage of colored pigments in the feathers’ horn (keratin) can only occur naturally during the keratinization process as a part of feather development.
NEKTON-R is administered shortly before and during molting/rearing. As the bird’s body is particularly strained during this stressful period, the compound has been added to with all essential vitamins, a variety of amino acids, as well as a balanced mixture of minerals and trace elements. NEKTON-R allows the bird to better cope with this strain
and thus enables orderly development of the entire plumage. NEKTON-R strengthens and supports the bird’s body during the whole molting/rearing process.
Daily vitamin supply with NEKTON-S should be merged with NEKTON-MSA in connection with this course of treatment.
