What is the difference between chelated copper and inorganic copper? Inorganic copper is copper that has been extracted from the earth by mining. Examples of inorganic copper products are copper sulfates and copper carbonates. They may be cheap, but they are not good!
Chelated Copper from TRM 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 a metal content, where the metal ion (Cu ++) in the compound is surrounded by and bound to organic matter.
This organic matter is amino acids.
Copper must be in a neutral and stable form to be absorbed.
Inhibiting factors for copper uptake pH of the soil - too acidic or too alkaline.
Excess zinc Excess phosphate (polluting fertilizer).
Excess vitamin C Leaching in the soil Moisture content in the soil Maturity and/or plant species grown Disorders resulting from copper deficiency
Blood - Anemia is notoriously common in animals. Copper is needed as an enzymatic component for RBC formation.
Blood vessels - Copper deficiencies can cause ruptures in the aorta or main uterine artery especially in old mares after foaling.
Bone - Bone abnormalities characterize almost all copper deficient animals, especially young cattle.
Metabolic bone disease or the preferred term DOD (developmental orthopedic disease) is now accepted as one of the predisposing factors in this disease.
Deficiencies of the copper enzyme lysl oxidase lead to poor collagen and bone formation.
DOD diseases include: Epiphysitis Angular deformities Wobblers Defective cartilage osteochondrosis Nerve cells - Demyelination characterizes copper deficiency. Hair and coat - Dullness and roughness in hair and coat. Enzyme changes - Copper is essential for life. This is because copper is required for at least 12 known metalloenzymes.
