A few key ingredients are:
- Bee Pollen

Over recent years uric acid has been noted to accumulate in the bodies of Dubia Roaches as part of their natural ability to store protein for future use. This is in itself harmless for the insects however it can impact on the health of reptiles that feed on them. Reptiles in general cannot store uric acid and so have to expel this through their kidneys which adds extra stress to the animals. In certain circumstances uric acid can also contribute to arthritis.
