Minerals are required to support the wide range of physiological processes that occur within your body. One of them is copper‚ which is contained in almost every cell. Copper activates a variety of different enzymes‚ or proteins‚ that are important for the breakdown and use of glucose. It is also an essential mineral in the enzyme lysyl oxidase; lysyl oxidase may help your body produce the structural proteins of collagen and elastin‚ which are primarily found in your hair‚ skin and bones. Copper also assists with the iron absorption necessary to form red blood cells‚ in addition to breaking down and using proteins and DNA. The mineral also plays a key role in forming the fatty membranes that surround and protect your nerve cells.
Your body primarily absorbs copper from seafood‚ wheat bran cereals‚ nuts‚ and seeds. Copper stored mostly in your bones and muscles. Meanwhile‚ the amount found in your bloodstream is controlled by your liver. Copper deficiency is rare‚ but it can occur if your diet is dependent upon tube feedings‚ if you have had intestinal bypass surgery‚ or when there is too much zinc in your diet. If your doctor finds that you have copper deficiency‚ he or she may recommend copper supplements.
A copper supplement like Pure Encapsulations’ Copper (Citrate) can be especially helpful if you’re suffering from brittle bones‚ or if you’re taking zinc‚ calcium‚ or manganese supplements; when taken in combination with these other minerals‚ copper may help discourage bone loss in post-menopausal women.
