  • High absorption trace mineral

  • Readily identified and absorbed across the intestinal wall

  • Patented mineral glycinate chelated form for optimum absorption

Meet the latest addition to our complete line of Albion chelated minerals. Like our other Albion chelates, our new copper capsules feature Albion's patented glycinate chelate form to further guarantee maximum assimilation. For more information on Albion products, see www.albionminerals.com.

What Makes Chelated Mineral Glycinates So Superior? First we need to understand the chelation process. Chelation is the result of minerals becoming chemically bound to amino acids in a very specific manner. Chelation occurs naturally during the digestive process to facilitate transport of minerals across the intestinal wall so that they may be utilized throughout the body. Amino acids are not the only "chelators" available, but they are ideal for minerals. The body is very efficient at absorbing individual amino acids, and Albion has identified the amino acid glycine as the preferred molecule for creating organic chelated minerals. Glycine is readily identified and absorbed across the intestinal wall, and Albion's glycinate chelates are actually small enough to transport right into the cells themselves!

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great In Small Amounts This is the best copper I've ever tried and it works great. I take only three capsules a week: Monday, Wednesday and Friday. That works great for me because if I take more I get queasy. I take it with breakfast and I take my Albion zinc glycinate at night to keep them separate which works better. Otherwise, it's excellent. Take responsibility for your health and lifestyle. Supplements only supplement. February 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Albion Chelated Copper I don't take a multi so it makes sense to supplement with a little copper if you're also supplementing with zinc. January 10, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Copper capsule quantity to small There are only 60 capsules per bottle. Most other minerals have 180 capsules per bottle. Please increase copper bottle size to contain 180 capsules. November 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Copper Great product! Great service from Swanson. May 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good product Albion has a reputation of producing good mineral chelates. If you are taking extra zinc, zinc will deplete copper reserves. Generally the standard proportion in vitamin/mineral supplements is 15 mg of zinc to 1 mg of copper. I've seen this vary from 30 to 1 to 10 to 1 but the aforementioned is a good rule of thumb. August 21, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Quality Copper Supplement This is a good quality copper supplement at a very good price. If I see the results I am looking for, I'll continue to purchase this product. If you are looking for a high quality copper supplement, this is a good buy. June 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent! I love my multivitamin but it doesn't contain copper. I know this product is being absorbed and my body is using it like it should. I take one of these 2mg caps per 15mg of zinc and I know that I'm all set. The best part is the price less than two bucks for two month supply, come on, you can't beat that! May 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 75 YO...on no meds! Been taking Swanson Supplements for many, many years, Albion Chelated Minerals are a part of my protocol. Works for me! November 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Albion Chelated Copper Wonderful product. My hair is really healthy now. The color and shine are great. November 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great copper product I read that copper supplements may help with reversing or slowing down greying hair. I have been taking a little extra copper daily for about 6 months. I do see a difference. It's slight, but is better. I will continue to supplement with Swansons products. They are great. May 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good supplement As recommended by naturopaths, people who take zinc should supplement it with copper as zinc tends to create an imbalance of copper in your system. This 2 mg. dosage keeps that from happening. February 16, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Average This product bothers my digestive system a little bit. I was using NutriCology Allergy Research Copper Sebacate, which has excellent bioavailability and is a bit more expensive, but decided to try the Swanson brand. The Swanson Ultra has good, but it just did not work very well for me. December 12, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Can't beat the price Great price and a quality product! March 31, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Take wiht you zinc If you take zinc do not forget your copper. March 13, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Copper Caps The tiniest little capsules I've ever seen! If you need a copper supplement, NO ONE would have trouble swallowing these as they are miniature in size. This comes in a good dosage (2mg) for a copper supplement if you don't need a higher dose for some reason. December 27, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by good product I take suppliments for well being and copper is a very important trace mineral. ALBION seems to have a handle on how to made suppliments easilly absorbed . Their cheleated version works well. I also take ALBION -TAURINE,UMBIQUINOLAND OTHERS. ALBION KNOWS WHAT THEY ARE DOING May 22, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Little Product We like the Albion Chelated line of products, and this little copper product is great! You can't go wrong with this one! September 12, 2009
