Much more likely the direct result of just the water content of the foods. Helps explain why wild box turtles have great looking skin in early spring well before any of the sources of beta carotene or vit. C are even available for them to eat.

Be very, very careful about what you 'prescribe' on the internet, especially if you are only referencing one or two sources without having a complete understanding of the big picture.
