A Dietary Supplement
Copper amino acid chelate, provided by Douglas Laboratories, is a patented, nutritionally functional bis-glycinate chelate (Albion Labs) with excellent bioavailability. Each tablet delivers 2 mg of elemental copper.
Copper may be a useful nutritional adjunct for individuals who wish to increase their intake of copper.
Copper is an essential trace element and functions as a cofactor of many enzymes involved in antioxidant defense (superoxide dismutase), connective tissue metabolism (lysyl oxidase), and amine metabolism (amine oxidases). Superoxide dismutase (SOD) is a key antioxidant enzyme in the body’s cellular fluid (the cytosol) and mitochondria (the cell’s powerhouses). SOD destroys harmful superoxide anions that are either generated during normal energy metabolism or coming from environmental pollution. Cytosolic SOD activity is dependent on sufficient levels of copper and zinc.
