Our exclusive formulation, when used as directed, provides one million colony forming units (CFUs) of live probiotic microorganisms per drop. In addition, each drop delivers 1.25 mg of vitamin C (ascorbic acid), together with chelated iron equivalent to .08 mg Fe. Research has shown that feeding vitamin C along with probiotics improved fish health to a greater extent than resulted from probiotics alone. Separate studies have shown that iron in small amounts is an essential trace mineral in the diet of fishes, required for the formation of hemoglobin, for example.
Some aquarium manufacturers have added probiotic organisms to their food recipes in response to new research. However, the heat necessary for processing pelleted and flaked foods destroys living probiotic microorganisms. No research has been done that would suggest the dead organisms are as effective as living ones in improving fish health, stimulating the immune system and boosting growth rates. Aqualife’s formula creates a shelf-stable product that maintains beneficial probiotics in their natural, living state.
