Product Description

Cooper Bisglycinate from Albion Minerals is a food supplement composed of copper in chelated form.

Copper (Cu) is an essential trace element for the functioning of the body, it acts as a cofactor for many enzymes and provides various benefits.

➻ Copper contributes to the maintenance of normal connective tissues ➻ Copper contributes to normal energy metabolism ➻ Copper contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system ➻ Copper contributes to normal hair pigmentation ➻ Copper contributes to normal iron transport in the body➻ Copper contributes to the normal pigmentation of the skin ➻ Copper contributes to the normal functioning of the immune system ➻ Copper contributes to the protection of cells against oxidative stress

In addition, a link between this element and the thyroid exists. Copper allows the conversion of T4 into T3 (active form) and if its level is too low, this can contribute to the symptomatological appearance of hypothyroidism.

The chelated form means that the copper ion is linked to glycine molecules, which guarantees protection against oxidation and better assimilation and intestinal tolerance.

Albion Minerals ensures the quality of this essential trace element by using its patented test (TRAACS) and guarantees consumers that it is indeed a 100% chelated form in organic form and not in the form of an inorganic oxide which is difficult to assimilate. .

As a result, copper, in chelated form, guarantees better assimilation and therefore better effects.


The copper distributed by Swanson is composed solely of copper in chelated form. This shape means that the copper ion is bound to 2 molecules of glycine, a non-essential amino acid. Albion Minerals uses a patented chelation process to manufacture its chelated minerals.

Chelation makes it possible to copy the process of binding minerals to amino acids which takes place in the stomach during digestion in order to form small chelated copper molecules which pass more easily through the intestinal wall thanks to the affinity of the copper. intestine for the absorption of amino acids.

The chelated forms have a very good bioavailability and present an improvement in terms of side effects which decrease more significantly compared to other forms. These are forms that are generally better tolerated by the body.

In addition, copper from Albion Minerals is part of the range of products tested by a patented method, called TRAACS. This method proves by rapid, reliable and efficient analyses, the presence of a chelated form in the complement, to characterize it and to quantify its degree of chelation. To date, Albion Minerals is the only manufacturer of chelates to provide identification methods for its products which assure the consumer of the unique presence of a stable chelated form for its minerals.


Copper deficiency: A very rare problem.

Copper deficiency in our society is a rare phenomenon. A diet, if it is balanced, provides enough copper. However, it is not impossible to be deficient in copper and a deficiency can be very dangerous for the body. Different causes can explain a state of deficiency:

• Unbalanced diet

• Diet rich in Zinc: in our metabolism, copper and zinc use the same receptor to cross the intestinal barrier, they are in competition. Thus, too much zinc intake will block access to copper receptors.

• Poor absorption of copper: especially in people who have problems with the digestive tract or who have intestinal diseases.

In the event of a deficiency, the signs and symptoms may manifest as:

• Anemia with feelings of weakness

• Sleep disturbances

• Concentration and memory problems

• Joint pain

• Leukopenia (= Decrease in white blood cells)

• Neutropenia (= Decrease in neutrophil granulocytes)

Excess copper:

Excessive consumption of copper is also very dangerous. This can lead to redox reactions, oxidative cell damage, cell death and different symptoms can occur in this situation such as:

• Nausea

• Diarrhea

• Problems with the liver (which is the main organ, sensor, distributor and excretor of copper).

These are the reasons why you should not supplement on your own, without having measured the copper status by a blood test. Supplementation is recommended only in case of deficiency.

Nutrition information

Warnings: Do not exceed the recommended daily dose. Food supplements should not be used as substitutes for a varied diet. A varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle are important. Keep out of reach of children. Store in a cool, dry place. For pregnant or breastfeeding women taking medication or having a medical condition, consult your doctor beforehand.

Do not supplement independently, even less before talking to your doctor and having carried out a blood test.
