Bluebonnet’s Chelated Copper Capsules provide 3 mg elemental copper from fully reacted copper bisglycinate, an amino acid chelate mineral from Albion. Available in easy-to-swallow vegetable capsules for maximum assimilation and absorption.
Mineral chelates (pronounced KEY-lates) are minerals bound to special “carriers” like amino acids and are particularly effective in propelling nutrients into the blood stream. Few nutritional substances cross the intestinal wall as quickly and easily as amino acids, thanks to their unique active transport mechanism of absorption. By linking the two, the amino acid is able to transport the mineral across the intestinal lining into the body, so it can be put to use. However, to be transported intact, the mineral must have a stable bond to the amino acid. Simply mixing minerals with amino acids – a basic ionic and hydrogen bond – will not produce a stable product. Mineral “chelates” created in this manner often lose their integrity during digestion and compromise the nutrient’s availability.
Albion® Laboratories has developed a process that produces a stable, nutritionally functional mineral chelate, which provides reliable and effective mineral nutrition. Albion’s patented technology replicates the body’s natural chelation process, essentially turning inorganic minerals into small, highly bioavailable organic molecules (non-ionized). This process ensures that the mineral will remain stable throughout digestion and ultimately result in maximum absorption.
Copper (micromineral) aids in iron absorption by playing an important role in the formation of red blood cells, specifically hemoglobin, which is the oxygen-carrying component of red blood cells. It helps produce elastin and collagen that enable wounds to heal and helps convert amino acids into pigments (melanin), adding color to hair and skin. Dietary sources high in copper include breads, grains, broccoli, eggs, oysters and liver.
As a dietary supplement take one capsule daily or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
