I´ve used it in the past (looong time ago) for reptiles, and as far as i could tell, it did a good job.
There´s a variant called herptivite if i´m not mistaken.

I use exaclty the same product to feed crickets to my p. cinereus and a. opacum. so far no refuses at all. they will bite till the last cricket disappears I am very satisfied. I know they are ingesting food with correct ratio of minerals when not feeding in lumbricus terrestris (probably the best food for caudates out there)
hope i´ve helped

Thanks!

Jorge, do you actually feed Reptivite to the crickets? I thought it would only be good for dusting...?
I feed the crickets "Cricket care", also from Zoo Med, that's supposed to gut load them as well:
Natural Cricket Care™

Hey Eva. Not really you missunderstood. I dust the powder in top of the crickets and them feed them to newts. What i use to feed crickets its 100% only pure carrots. They love and it gets them with amazing amounts of carotenes!! Good for Paramesotriton juvie bellys!
