Ultraviolet LED Lights
The Exo Terra Ultraviolet Lights are designed to replicate the natural UV radiation reptiles receive in the wild, providing optimal levels of both UVA and UVB. In their natural habitats, reptiles are constantly exposed to UV radiation. Even nocturnal species, often thought to avoid sunlight, occasionally benefit from UV exposure. One of the standout features of the Exo Terra Ultraviolet Lights is the great Vitamin D3 yield index. This ensures optimal vitamin D3 photosynthesis, which is crucial for calcium absorption. Adequate calcium absorption is essential for the health of reptiles, helping to prevent metabolic disease.

Prevents Metabolic Bone Disease!
Metabolic bone disease (MBD) is a common ailment among captive reptiles, arising from mineral imbalances, notably in calcium, and a deficiency of vitamin D3. Recognizable symptoms encompass weakened bones, tremors, and lethargy. One pivotal factor contributing to MBD is the insufficient exposure to ultraviolet B (UVB) light. By incorporating Ultraviolet LED Lights, you can create an environment where your reptiles can naturally synthesize Vitamin D3, promoting optimal calcium metabolism. This process not only stimulates vitally important biological processes but also serves as a preventive measure against metabolic bone disease (MBD), mirroring the conditions they would experience in the wild.
The absorption of UVB light, especially when complemented by Infrared-A heat rays, significantly contributes to reptile health by facilitating the synthesis of vitamin D3. Vitamin D3 not only aids calcium metabolism, vital for bone structure, but also regulates the proper functioning of their most important organs, preventing cardiovascular diseases and stimulating the immune system. UV rays also constitute a highly effective defence system against viral, bacterial, and fungal infections.
Reduces Energy Costs.
Ultraviolet LED Lights surpass traditional UV Lights in energy efficiency while still replicating the natural UVA and UVB radiation reptiles experience in their native environments. With their impressive energy efficiency and extended lifespan, Ultraviolet LED Lights not only contribute to lower energy bills but also boast a reduced environmental footprint. Opting for these LED lights reflects a wise and eco-conscious lighting decision.
