Vitacost Chelated Copper - Albion® Copper Glycinate Chelate -- 60 Capsules

Advanced mineral nutrition! Essential trace mineral in chelate form for optimum absorption. What is Vitacost Chelated Copper - Albion® Copper Glycinate Chelate. Vitacost Chelated Copper - Albion® Copper Glycinate Chelate is a high-quality chelated form of the mineral copper.  . Chelated minerals—which are minerals chemically bound to another molecule (typically an amino acid)—are better transported and utilized throughout the body.

The amino acids bind to minerals allowing them pass easily through the intestinal walls.  . Unfortunately the body is not efficient at producing chelated minerals. So Albion developed an exclusive technology that mimics the body’s natural chelation process producing readily absorbable organic chelated minerals in supplement form. Glycine an easily identified and efficiently absorbed amino acid is the chelator (binding agent) most commonly used in Albion formulations. Albion chelated minerals are:.

good to take copper if you take zinc also
 April 29, 2013
"I've read that if you take zinc you need to also take copper at a different time since they can't both absorb at the same time. We take copper in the morning and we get zinc in our multi- vitamin at night. This is a tiny pill which pleases my husband who does not like to shallow big pills."
