Description

NutriDiet® Goldfish Flakes are formulated to provide all essential nutrients for all Goldfish. As with all of the Seachem NutriDiets, Goldfish 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, Goldfish Flakes contain GarlicGuard™ as an appetite stimulant and a natural antibacterial/antiparasitic product to protect against a myriad of infections and infestations of bacteria and parasites.

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 goldfish.

Goldfish Flakes also contain probiotics which allow for more rapid and simplistic digestion of the partner nutrients. Less energy is required by the fish to digest the food. The food is more completely digested which reduces unnecessary waste in the system which is common to keeping Goldfish. This also allows for more nutrient uptake and increased immune function. Lastly, patent pending compounds complete the formulation to enhance immune function further as well as extend life potential, promote natural growth, and enhance the color of fish.


NutriDiet® Advantages

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% fiber, 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 catalyzing 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 maximize 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.

Probiotics

Probiotics are microorganisms that when consumed, confer several health benefits. We use these ingredients to allow all of the NutriDiets® to be much more digestible with the use of less energy by the fish. This also means that the foods are more completely digested. This maximizes nutrient uptake while at the same time reducing waste into the system. Maximized nutrient uptake also enhances immune function.

GarlicGuard™

Seachem’s garlic-based product is added to all of the NutriDiet® flakes to enhance palatability with all fish. GarlicGuard™ also has natural anti bacterial and anti parasitic qualities that can enhance overall fish health long term.

Garlic has been found to enhance thiamin absorption, and therefore reduces the likelihood for developing thiamin deficiency. It also has a high vitamin C content. It has shown promise as a medication in combatting protozoal disease.

Allium sativum yields allicin, an antibiotic and antifungal compound (phytoncide). Garlic also affords the sulfur-containing compounds alliin, ajoene, diallyl polysulfides, vinyldithiins, and S-allylcysteine. Furthermore, it contains a phytoalexin (allixin), a compound with antioxidant effects, antimicrobial effects, and antitumor promoting effects. 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.


Directions

Feed 1-3 times daily. Feed as much as the fish will consume in three minutes of feeding.
