Copper is a powerful antioxidant that helps our body process iron as it converts it to its iron form, and allows it to be transported to and from tissues.
Copper aids in the formation and transportation of hemoglobin, the main protein found in red blood cells and carries oxygen from the lungs to the body’s tissues. Copper deficiency can cause anemia, resulting in reduced blood’s ability to carry oxygen to tissues and cells.
Contributes to the structural integrity of connective tissue throughout the human body. This mineral is part of collagen, a protein responsible for the integrity of bones, cartilage, skin and tendons. It is also part of elastin, a connective tissue that gives elasticity to blood vessels, lungs and skin, allowing them to move and stretch according to changes in pressure and movement.
Low copper levels have been associated with an increased LDL (bad) cholesterol and reduced HDL (good) cholesterol. This may account for low copper intake being a potential factor in heart and circulatory problems.
The immune system’s response may decrease when copper levels are low, making us prone to infections.
Copper levels in our blood can determine whether our body has good or poor bone density. Even a mild deficiency of it may cause and worsen injuries already caused by osteoporosis in the bones. If we manage to increase copper intake in our diet, this will help reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
Copper treatment has been shown to reduce fever and inflammation and increase joint mobility in people with rheumatoid arthritis.
Wound and Burn Treatment
The colloidal copper promotes healing of burns and cuts, and when applied directly to the wound, it can speed up the healing and regeneration process of the skin.
Antioxidants are molecules that delay and prevent the oxidation of other molecules in the body. The presence of antioxidants in our body helps prevent the action of free radicals in the body.
Free radicals are molecules that constantly form in our body as the result of biological reactions that occur in cells, but that when there is an imbalance between their production and their elimination, diseases begin to appear.
Antioxidants, such as those found in colloidal copper, remove free radicals from the body.
