SEACHEM Nutridiet Discus Flakes 30g
- Probiotics Formula
- Enhanced with added GarlicGuard to attract finicky eaters and enhance palatability
- High in protein and a rich assortment of vitamins and minerals
- Promotes nutrient uptake, reduces waste, and supports the immune system
NutriDiet Discus Flakes is a tasty natural food with probiotics that promotes digestion, reduces waste, supports immune system for freshwater and marine fish.
NutriDiet Discus Flakes is an excellent source of protein, fats, carbo, fiber, vitamins, minerals necessary for the general growth and well being of fish.
NutriDiet Discus Flakes is a premium and nutritionally balanced diet formulated to meet the requirements of all discus. It contains only the highest quality ingredients including fish, squid, and earthworms. As with all of the Seachem NutriDiets, Discus Flakes have Chlorella Algae as an exceptional source of a broad range of vitamins, amino acids as well as all other nutrients required for animal life. Chlorella Algae is considered a potential super food that far surpasses the nutrients delivered by Spirulina Algae common to other diets. Additionally, Discus Flakes contain GarlicGuard as an appetite stimulant.
Vitamin C allows for enhanced immune function and collagen production and thereby tissue repair and growth. Natural color enhancers assist in making the most of the potential color of any discus.
Discus Flakes also contain probiotics which helps the digestive system of fish and inverts by promoting nutrient uptake, reducing waste, and supporting the immune system.
- Chlorella: It is an attractive food source because, and has been deemed a Super-Food as it is high in protein and other essential nutrients. When dried; it is about 45% protein, 20% fat, 20% carbohydrate, 5% fibre, and abundant in minerals and vitamins and satisfies all of the requirements of a healthy and balanced fish diet as established by the National Academy of Sciences. It is the highest-known source of chlorophyll. While these are all beneficial, the greatest value of chlorella lies in a fascinating ingredient called Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF). CGF is a water soluble nucleotide-peptide complex found only in chlorella. It is responsible for the rapid rate of growth of the alga. Experiments with microorganisms and animals have shown that CGF promotes faster than normal growth without adverse side effects by naturally catalysing the DNA to RNA to protein conversion. It stimulates tissue repair and protects cells against some toxic by-products of rapid growth. The process used in preparing Seachem chlorella products has been specially designed to maximise the CGF content retained in the final product. The effects of CFG are only observed in algae whose cell walls have been perforated, as the wall is composed of material that cannot be readily digested. The Seachem protocol breaks open the cell wall, allowing the cell contents to be fully available for digestion.
- Proteinates and Hydrolysates: Many of the ingredients in NutriDiets are present as proteinates and hydrolysates, making them much easier for fish to digest. This results in greater nutrient uptake by the fish and more complete digestion of the food. The fish benefits from receiving more nutrients from the food while expending less energy on digestion, and less nutrients are lost as waste in the tank, leading to better health for the fish overall.
- GarlicGuard: Seachem's garlic-based product is added to all of the NutriDiet flakes to enhance palatability with all fish. Garlic has a high vitamin C content. Garlic also affords the sulfur-containing compounds alliin, ajoene, diallyl polysulfides, vinyldithiins, and S-allylcysteine. Furthermore, it contains a phytoalexin (allixin). In addition, garlic has substantial amounts of beta-carotene, vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, C, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, sodium, zinc, manganese and selenium.
- Vitamin C: Vitamin C is a cofactor in the processes necessary for the formation of connective tissue, scar tissue in wound repair, and bone matrix. Vitamin C is difficult for fish to acquire in natural diets but is critical in addressing healing and growth issues in many fish. Vitamin C also allows for enhanced immune function.
