Copper is an essential trace mineral responsible for a variety of enzymatic reactions in the body.* Copper in sebacate salt form has been shown to restore the copper enzymes tyrosinase, lysyl oxidase, and ceruloplasmin.* Copper deficiency is uncommon because copper occurs naturally in many foods, and most of the earth’s surface and groundwater used for drinking contains small amounts of copper. Copper water pipes and copper cookware are also sources of dietary copper. The absorption and utilization of copper can be hindered by elevated intakes of copper antagonists such as zinc, iron, vitamin C, and fructose sweeteners.
Copper is an essential nutrient for the body. Together with iron, it enables the body to form red blood cells. It helps maintain healthy bones, blood vessels, nerves, and immune function, contributing to iron absorption. Sufficient copper in the diet may help prevent cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis, too.
