Vision Mark brings Vita-Max AQ the latest in vitamin C - with "Poly-phosphate" base - offering advantages of quality, highest stability, and bio-availability meeting the international standards.
Vita-Max AQ is practically insoluble in water because of its unique composition. Vita-Max AQ is a well appreciated and proven source of stable, bioavailable and superior source of vitamin C.
Prawn and fish depend upon an exogenous dietary source of vitamin C because vitamin C cannot be synthesized in the body of prawn and fish due to the lack of enzyme L-gulonolactone oxidase (responsible for in vivo synthesis of vitamin C).
Ascorbic acid is a vital co-factor in the hydroxylation of proline to hydroxyproline - a precursor of collagen (the structural support tissue). A deficiency of ascorbic acid therefore results in an impaired collagen metabolism.
Vita-Max AQ is a new, highly stable, digestable form of vitamin C as a feed ingredient, which is readily absorbed by shrimp and fish.
Vita-Max AQ is a beige, spray dried powder consisting of a stabilized (phosporylated) Na/Ca salt of L-ascorbic acid. The highly reactive C-2 carbon atom of ascorbic acid is esterified with phosphate and thus protected from destruction by oxidation.
Vita-Max AQ contains a combination of ascorbyl-2-mono-, di- and triphoshates in a practically constant ratio. This guarantees a consistent chemical and physical product quality.
The experimental evidence7 has been confirmed by in-vivo tests demonstrated that the stability of Vita-Max AQ is very high when compared to other vitamin C forms, desired results can be obtained by adding recommended amounts of material.
Dosage and application
Dosage and application can be adjusted based on conditions prevailing in pond and prawn health or as per the advice of Aquaculture experts.
