BIOPLEX COPPER (copper proteinate) – 12% elemental copper. Equine mineral forage balancing.


SKU: N/A Categories: ,

Bioplex Copper (copper proteinate) 12% elemental copper

A highly absorbable source of copper providing 12% elemental copper.

Copper is an essential trace mineral often lacking in a horse’s diet and plays an important role in repair, maintenance and development of hooves, joints, bones, tendons ligaments and cartilage.

Copper is also required for the production of the pigment melanin which gives hair its colour and supports a healthy coat and helps prevent coat, mane and tail bleaching.

Copper is necessary for the mobilisation of stored iron in the horses body. Copper absorption is complex as it interacts with several other trace elements, which can affect copper absorption in the equine diet.

  • Essential trace mineral
  • Supports healthy coat
  • Required for production melanin
  • Helps prevent coat mane and tail bleaching
  • Supports hoof health
  • Supports health of bones, tendons, ligaments and cartilage
  • Iron metabolism
  • Healthy haemoglobin levels

Bioplex copper is ideal for those diets where balancing mineral requirements to forage analysis is important.

1 x 5 ml scoop provides approx 3.5 g of product which will supply 420 mg elemental copper (this is for information only and not a recommendation)

Copper requirements vary depending on availability of copper in your horse’s diet. Please consult a professional for further advice and feeding guidelines

Please note: The feeding of mineral separates should not be undertaken without having your forage, either hay or pasture, analyzed and the correct mineral ratios established. If you are unable to carry out a full mineral analysis from all sources of forage and are uncertain of the mineral levels required, we recommend feeding a premixed supplement/balancer instead. Please see our equine balancers for more details:

Pack size and availability: Progressive Earth Bioplex Copper equine feed supplement is available in resealable grip seal pouches containing 1 Kg of product. Multiple purchase options are available.

    Adding just a tiny bit of extra copper to my horses diet has really improved his feet. A very cost effective suplement as you feed so little it lasts for ages.
