Your body needs copper‚ since it is an essential trace mineral that supports its overall functioning. It is involved in many important physiological processes. These processes include energy metabolism‚ red blood cell formation‚ and more.
Copper promotes the absorption of iron‚ an important mineral. As a result‚ it plays a role in forming hemoglobin and red blood cells. Red blood cells deliver oxygen to the body parts that need it.
In addition‚ copper is a key component of lysyl oxidase. Lysyl oxidase is an enzyme that binds elastin and collagen together in tissues‚ while also helping the respiratory system function. Finally‚ copper works to produce both RNA and myelin; it helps in the synthesis of phospholipids in order to form myelin sheaths‚ which are the cellular layer that allow nerve cells to efficently transport the electrical impulses that tell those cells what to do.
Dietary sources of copper include organ meats‚ beans‚ seafood‚ and nuts; acidic foods tend to have decreased amounts. Symptoms like diarrhea or constant stress may interfere with absorption; furthermore‚ adult women tend to need more copper than men. A supplement such as Copper (Glycinate) by Pure Encapsulations provides a highly bioavailable form of this trace mineral. Copper glycinate may be easier for your body to absorb‚ due to the copper being chelated with glysine.
Take one or two vegetable capsules daily‚ in divided doses with meals. Every capsule provides two milligrams of copper--sourced from natural earthen ore--for a mild boost. At the recommended dosage‚ each 60-capsule bottle of Pure Encapsulations' Copper (Glycinate) should last from one to two months.
