jurrassivite good or bad?

Well I have recently heard some reccomondations to use the vitamin supplement jurrasivite or something the rather. I am hoping some one has any experience with this and would be willing to tell me it. i will be using it on my bearded dragons just for awhile, and my leos.

I use herpivite right now of coarse but I was just wondering if jurrasivite is a good vitamin supplement.

Please be very specific.

here is the run down of the site qoute:

JurassiVite™ is the only reptile/amphibian vitamin/mineral supplement that provides all 14 essential vitamins and 17 trace and ultra-trace minerals recommended by herpetelogical experts*. JurassiVite™ provides Vitamin A as beta carotene. This avoids risk of Vitamin A toxicity and allows the animal to produce Vitamin A as needed. Vitamins A, D3 and E are present in the recommended* ratio of 100:10:1. Vitamin supplementation is often necessary to avoid ailments (such as anorexia, poor growth, ataxia, muscle tremors, bradycardia, blindness, osteomalacia, osteporosis and goiter) arising from dietary deficiencies. JurassiVite™ employs an alfalfa base for enhanced palatability and nutritive value.
*Mader, Reptile Medicine & Surgery, 1996.

Reptile/Amphibian Use Only. Keep Away from Children

DIRECTIONS: BEGINNER: Lightly dust food before serving. Adheres best if food is already slightly moist. ADVANCED: Mix 3 g (1 tsp.) of JurassiVite™ for every 400 g (about 4 cups) of food. Shake insects in a container with 1 tsp. of JurassiVite™.
