TNT Tortoise Nutritional Supplement

 Dried weeds, flowers and plants are an excellent way of supplementing grocery store greens. They add fiber, balance the amino acid content, provide the most bioavailable calcium. The ground weeds flowers and plants are easy to mix with store bought produce. They nutritionally similar to their non dried counterpart, just minus most the water (dried plants are typically around 5% water whereas their fresh counterpart is 95% water)

This blend of powders was developed for Russian Tortoises, but is excellent for all grazing torts. It has been tested over the last 10 or so years on hatchlings and adults. By using this I have eliminated the need to use any other supplements including calcium powders. All ingredients were chosen for their health benefits, palatability and nutritional content. The result is a mix with balanced amino acids, high calcium and magnesium, low phosphorous and high soluble and insouluble fiber.
