If you would like to gut load them at home though it is very easy to do!
We recommend using [Repashy Superload](http://www.rainbowmealworms.net/repas...), or if you have a pet store near you, you can also offer your mealworms [Cuttlebones](https://www.animalwised.com/nutrition...) made for parakeets to eat. They are an extremely calcium-rich dietary supplement and will dramatically increase your mealworm's calcium supply.
We have had plans to gutload or 'vitamin-enhance' our feeders on the drawing board a couple of times and every time when we weigh the pros and cons the proposal is scrapped. Reptiles and birds can suffer from hypervitaminosis especially from vitamin A. We worry that if we are adding vitamins to our insects, and the customer adds vitamins that the cumulative amount could potentially be detrimental to your animal's health.
Instead, we feed our worms wheat bran and carrots that are naturally rich in vitamins. We stand by our long-time company mission to be an all-natural farm and leaving the choice of adding artificial addition of vitamins and minerals up to the customer at home.
