Copper works quickly - taking 3mg for one to two weeks, or less, is generally all that's needed to normalise a copper deficiency. If your health issue doesn't begin to resolve in that time - suggests the cause is unlikely to be copper. I've tried about 7 or 8 of the ones available from here and prefer Cu-Zyme - it definitely works, with no nasty side effects (e.g. stomach upset). I find all mineral-glycine chelates give me bad headaches and cause me to feel awful (regardless of brand/mineral) - gluconate never does (glycine is a neurotransmitter antagonist, thus glycine amino chelates won't be suitable for everyone - another example are those on a low purine diet). I didn't find succinate effective at all. Because Cu-Zyme doesn't cause stomach upset, the need to watch what you take it with is perhaps less important. If you do find it a problem, avoid taking copper with low pH food/drink. Copper is best taken on it's own - avoid taking with other supplements. The following either deplete/need copper, thus can help manipulate levels up (by reducing/avoiding) or down (by taking more of), depending on your requirements: vit C, B6, sulfur, calcium, magnesium, molybdenum, boron, zinc, dairy (penicillium/penicillamine chelates copper).

I feel I need a small amount of copper. This is chelated and Solgar has the wisdom to put their products in a dark container for longer life and less chance of product deterioration.

This product gave me stomach pain and nausea. Hope iherb start selling copper citrate like BioCitrate Copper 2 mg, made by solaray. Amino acid chelate doesn't work fork for me.

Not recommended for anyone unless they've been resident of Virginia for more than 7 years. I love the product. But, it's not recommended if you don't have insurance to supplement it's natural effects. I was exposed to yellow fever and it helped. I lived in a very rural red neck part of VA.

Copper is another thing missing in our soil and needed for the uptake of Selenium. I am feeling much better in all respects taking these two together, plus Zinc.
