Copper is an essential trace element for animals needed for body, bone and wool growth, pigmentation, healthy nerve fibres and white blood cell function. Copper deficiency can actually harm the body in multiple ways. Copper is important for the production of hemoglobin and red blood cells, as well as for the proper utilization of iron and oxygen within the blood.
In the past, Copper was added to feed mostly in the form of Copper Sulphate, but very few of them was absorbed by the animal body as most of them were excreted and this cause cost problem and environment problem.
Now, we are good position to offer the Organic Copper products at the form of Copper Glycinate, Copper Methionine and Tribasic Copper Chloride.
The Organic Copper is the third generation of trace mineral feed additives. They are manufactured with metal ion bound to amino acid molecule which form ring compound with proper structure. This organic ring compound is very stable when passing the pre-intestinal volatile environment which allows the organic copper to reach the target organs and tissues to maximize the utilization of trace minerals. At the target organs or tissues, the Organic Copper is absorbed as a whole molecule by the way of peptide path and amino acid path. Meanwhile, the metal ion was bound into a complete molecule and this reduces the antagonistic functions. The best bioavailability of Copper then will be well ensured.
