Each measure supplies:
- 333mg bisglycinate copper
- 999mg zinc chelate
The copper and zinc bisglycinate consist of a bivalent metal ion, namely Cu+2and Zn+2, linked to two molecules of glycine. The metal is bound to the carboxyl group and to the α-amino group of glycine with coordinate covalent bonds to form two heterocyclic rings. The 1:2 metal to ligand ratio significantly reduces interaction/competition with other inhibitors, including iron, to reduce absorption, neither do bisglycinates participate in oxidation reactions, this means a lower dose can be given than other copper/zinc supplements including those containing bioplex, (bound to an amino acid).
A level scoop of Phyto-Cozin will deliver 3g (1 scoop), This is recommended for horses thought to be lacking in copper and zinc, but a lower daily dose is recommended for maintenance (1/2 scoop).
