What is the difference between Chelated Copper and inorganic copper?
Inorganic copper is copper that has been taken from the earth by mining. Examples of inorganic copper products are copper sulphates and copper carbonates. They may be inexpensive but they are no good! TRM”s Chelated Copper is an organic copper. This is the only way to orally supplement copper in horses and other animals. Chelated copper is an organic compound with metallic content, where the metal ion (Cu++) in the compound is surrounded by and bonded to organic matter. This organic matter is amino acids. Copper must be in a neutral & stable form to be absorbed.
Inhibitory Factors to Copper Uptake
pH of soil – too acidic or too alkaline
Excess Phosphate ( Fertiliser pollutant)
Excess Vitamin C
Leaching in the Soil
Moisture content in the soil
Maturity and/or species of plants grown
- Additional Information
Ingredients 'CHELATED COPPER SYRUP & CHELATED COPPER GEL are quality products which have been formulated to provide your horses with an easily asorbed form of copper. A number of common complaints in the horse can be attributed to low copper levels, these include: · Increased incidence of epiphysitis in young stock. · Dullness in the coat and poor hooves. · Anaemia; copper is required for the production of the pigment in red blood cells. · Mares having had fatal ruptures of the uterine artery after foaling had lower than normal copper levels. TRM’ s CHELATED COPPER supplements fulfils all the requirements of A.A.F.C.O. (American Association of Feed Control Officials). Why Feed CHELATED COPPER? CHELATED COPPER SYRUP & CHELATED COPPER GEL are the result of the bringing together of the trace mineral copper, and amino acids. This process greatly enhances the absorption of the copper across the gut wall into the horses body. Inorganic copper supplements (e.g. sulphates) cannot be absorbed as easily and part of the base element is lost via excretion. Deficiencies can occur, especially with the metal minerals. The reason why there may be a copper deficiency in a horse can either be traced back to the soil that the grass, hay or grain was grown on or some inhibitory substance that stops the uptake of copper. Note: This product provides an easily absorbed form of copper. Copper should be supplemented in areas where deficiencies exist. It is important to know the required amount of copper supplementation necessary in your area. If in any doubt consult your Veterinarian or Nutritionist.
