Copper an essential trace mineral, is necessary for the proper function of the immune system.
Copper is found in all parts of your body and concentrates in your liver, heart, kidneys, brain, bones, and muscles and blood. Trace amounts of Copper are present in all body tissues so that it can fulfil its role as an integral part of your immune systems’ response to bacteria, virus, and especially yeast and mold.
Copper increases Iron assimilation, as well as working together with the Iron to form hemoglobin and red blood cells. Various enzyme reactions require Copper, including activation of thyroid hormones so they are available for use in controlling your metabolism. Copper influences protein metabolism. It influences how your body perceives pain because it is a necessary part of enkephalin production. It improves vitamin C oxidation, as well as being an integral part in the formation of RNA.
Graying hair may be an indicator of diminishing amounts of Copper in your body. Copper and Zinc must balance in the body in approximately a seven part Zinc to one part Copper ratio. Therefore, poor Zinc levels may limit the amount of Copper that your body will absorb. The excess Copper over that ratio may be perceived by your body as a toxic amount, and it will consequently respond to it as if the Copper were a toxin. Therefore, Zinc and Copper are continually in a balancing act that is in constant motion!
