Supplement of essential vitamins supports the health. Vitamin A is important for the renewal of skin cells, vision, reproduction and metabolism. Vitamin D3 stimulates the intake of calcium / phosphorus and thus supports the bones. Vitamins E and C are important antioxidants that protect the body against free radicals. Both vitamins also support the body's natural immunity. All Complete feeds are supplemented with stabilized vitamin C. In contrast to the crystalline form, stabilized vitamin C is much less susceptible to oxidation and biodegradation, so that it remains active longer.
The addition of natural plant pigments, lutein and β-carotene, has a positive effect on the overall immunity and health. On the one hand, the carotenoids are known as strong biological antioxidants. On the other hand, they strengthen the body's natural immunity by stimulating the development of antibodies against diseases.
