Zinc + Copper - Better TogetherLEARN MORE
Separately, zinc and copper have hundreds (if not thousands) of essential roles supporting your physical and mental performance — including...
- Supporting your cardiovascular system and maintaining your blood lipid levels
- Playing an important role in your brain and body’s stress response — supporting your mood
- Keeping your immune system strong
- Converting amino acids into usable cellular energy — supporting physical performance
- Helping to promote normal testosterone and estrogen levels
- Signaling apoptosis which normally regulates cells based on age, condition, or cell health
- Fortifying your cell membranes to reduce oxidative damage
- Playing an integral role in maintaining prostate health
And taken together, these two key minerals become even more powerful:
Bulletproof™ Zinc with Copper combines both essential trace elements in amounts proven in the latest scientific studies because together they develop a crucial antioxidant enzyme called copper-zinc superoxide dismutase (CuZnSOD).
Don’t worry about pronouncing it — just know that this unique product of combining zinc and copper is one of your body’s primary internal defense mechanisms against oxidative stress.
Additionally, maintaining proper levels of both zinc and copper in your system can be a delicate balance — for example, you can actually deplete your copper levels by taking zinc on its own. So, consuming both micronutrients together, in scientifically studied amounts, can help ensure you’re getting the maximum benefit without accidentally ending up with too much of one or the other.
Does Modern Food Have Enough?LEARN MORE
A full rundown of zinc and copper benefits would fill up a small book — with vital roles in everything from cardiovascular function, to hormone production, to keeping your immune system strong. In fact, zinc alone is responsible for over 300 enzymatic reactions in your body.
But even though both zinc and copper occur naturally in vegetables, fruits and meats…chances are you’re not getting enough — even if you’re following the Bulletproof Diet.
After all, nutrient depletion in modern soil is steadily driving down the vitamins and minerals you’re getting bite-for-bite compared to the produce your parents and grandparents ate (even if you buy organic). And not just a little bit — compared to a generation or two ago, copper levels in contemporary foods are as much as 75% lower than they used to be.
Meanwhile, because your body doesn’t store zinc, it needs to be replenished daily...
While the best pound-for-pound food source for zinc is oysters, you’re probably not throwing back enough oysters on the half-shell each day to make a difference, even if you like them. What about other food sources for zinc? Red meat, nuts, legumes, and whole-grains also contain zinc, but in markedly lower amounts. And you may want to avoid consuming too many nuts, legumes, and whole-grains daily for other reasons, like their high levels of phytates and other “anti-nutrients,” which can suppress zinc absorption from your diet.
The takeaway? Even if you have plates piled with fresh-grown veggies washed down with platters of Oysters Rockefeller daily, supplementing with extra zinc and copper is likely one of the easiest “quick win” upgrades you can add to your diet.
Ingredients and How to UseLEARN MORE
Take one capsule daily with a meal to support mood, immune function, and energy.
Amount Per Serving (1 Vegetable Capsule):
- Zinc Orotate – 15mg
- Copper Orotate – 2mg
Rice bran extract, modified cellulose (vegetable capsule), rice hull.
Note: Zinc on an empty stomach may cause mild stomach upset in some people. If this happens it is okay to take with a meal, but try to avoid taking with foods/supplements containing iron, calcium, and phytates because they reduce bioavailability and absorption of zinc.

Common QuestionsLEARN MORE
Q: Is it vegetarian/vegan?
Q: Why vegetable capsules?
A: Although the Bulletproof diet contains some animal-sourced protein, it also contains loads of healthy and delicious vegetables. Bulletproof strives to offer the best quality products possible, and vegetable capsules do just that. Although they are more expensive than the standard animal-sourced gelatin capsule, they offer some great benefits compared to gelatin. They’re 100% natural, vegetarian/vegan friendly, and more stable than gelatin when exposed to heat and humidity.
Q: What is the source of the vegetable capsules?
A: The plant fiber used to make the vegetable capsules is all-natural alpha cellulose derived from the pulp of specially selected, high-grade Southern soft pine trees.
Q: Can Zinc with Copper cause stomach discomfort?
A: When taken on an empty stomach zinc may cause mild stomach discomfort. If this occurs, it is okay to take with a meal, but is best to avoid foods/supplements containing iron, calcium, and phytates because they reduce bioavailability and absorption of zinc.
Q: What are excipients and flow agents? Why is there rice on the label?
A: Excipients and flow agents such as rice ingredients are part of the manufacturing process required to encapsulate ingredients. Bulletproof formulates its products with the latest technologies and adopts new and improved technologies as they become available. We have chosen to use the outermost layer of the rice grain (rice hull or bran) because it is one of the cleanest excipients available. Other options are less natural, like polydimethylsiloxane, sodium bicarbonate, stearic acid, and powdered cellulose. We use the least possible amount of rice hull or bran as necessary in the manufacturing process — so, the rice content is very minimal, and carries no discernible impact on the amount of complex carbohydrates in your individual diet.
