ProPath® Cu 170

1 of 10 products in this brand
ProPath® Cu 170 (copper amino acid complex) is a nutritional feed ingredient for all species (except sheep and other ovine species) that contains organic copper. It is built from a unique, patented trace mineral product that combines two specific amino acids, each bound (or complexed) to a separate copper ion, in a stable, 1:1 ratio. ProPath Cu 170, from Zinpro Performance Minerals®, delivers exceptional benefits to animals and customers. These benefits include a highly concentrated mineral formulation, superior uptake and absorption, biological efficacy, diet flexibility and consistency, product stability, solubility and sustainability. Flexible for use in a wide variety of diets, such as conventional or specialty (like non-GMO), ProPath Cu 170 relies on two synergistic, amino-acid absorption pathways (cationic and anionic) to elevate copper mineral nutrition in the animal. Optimizing these pathways allows copper to be more effectively absorbed and metabolically available in the animal’s organs, tissues and enzyme systems. The trace mineral copper is required by animals for numerous functions including: immunity, reproduction, skin and hoof integrity, iron metabolism, as well as bone development and maintenance. In addition, when an animal has the proper balance of trace minerals, it is better able to cope with the challenging effects of stress. Zinpro Performance Minerals are the most bioavailable trace minerals on the market, which means more of the minerals are absorbed by the animal to deliver their full benefit. For more than 45 years, Zinpro Performance Minerals have delivered positive animal performance responses and a strong return on investment in operations around the world. A nutritional feed ingredient for animal feed. When used as a commercial feed ingredient, it must be declared as copper amino acid complex. Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) No. 57.150. Canada Reg. No. 991298.
