Description

Equine America Copper-Plus 1kg 

Copper is a key trace mineral and plays many important roles in the body, including:

  • Red blood cell production and in particular the formation of the oxygen-carrying pigment haemoglobin.
  • As a key component in antioxidant enzymes, helping to protect muscle and other cells from oxidative damage.
  • As a key co-factor in enzymes which help maintain strength and flexibility in connective tissue such as tendons and ligaments.
  • Bone production and development, and is vital for correct skeletal development in young horses.
  • The production of myelin, the protective covering of nerve cells.
  • Keratin synthesis for healthy skin, mane and tail hair and hoof production.
  • As a key component in enzymes responsible for the production of skin pigments

Copper interacts closely with zinc and Vitamin B12, and both these micronutrients are provided in Copper Plus Powder, to help maintain the correct ratios in the overall diet. Key antioxidants Vitamin E and controlled levels of Selenium are also provided to support copper’s role as an important co-factor in antioxidant enzymes, helping to protect muscles and other cells from oxidative damage.

Many UK pastures and forages are either low or marginal in copper, and copper supplementation may be required in specific cases where forage levels are known to be low or marginal, or where are high levels of copper antagonists such as iron or sulphur are present in the feed or forage, which may interfere with copper absorption.

Copper Plus Powder will help to correct a lack of copper in the diet, with safe and controlled levels, from bio-available sources.

Seek professional advice if a copper deficiency is suspected, either from a qualified nutritionist or your veterinary surgeon.

What are the benefits of Copper Plus Powder?
