Description

What is Copper?
Copper exists in the body in two forms: cuprous (Cu+) and cupric (Cu2+). One reason why this trace mineral is essential is because the shift between the two forms of copper is really accessible. To interchange between the two types of copper, a reaction must take place to produce energy.

Copper is readily found in nuts and shellfish and Public Health England advise adults aged 19-64 years old to consume at least 1.2mg copper daily.

Benefits

Benefits of Copper
Copper has several uses, many of which are vital for the full functionality of the body. Copper contributes to the maintenance of normal connective tissues and protects cells from oxidative stress. As an antioxidant, copper is commonly used to benefit the normal function of the immune system. The trace mineral also aids normal energy metabolism and functioning of the nervous system. Lastly, copper is used for normal skin and hair pigmentation, as well as to support the transport of iron in the body.
