Copper is an essential trace mineral that supports your body’s overall functioning. It is involved in many of your body’s critical physiological processes, including energy metabolism‚ red blood cell formation‚ and more.
Copper promotes the absorption of iron‚ a mineral that is vital for the formation of hemoglobin and for the red blood cells that deliver oxygen to the body.
In addition‚ copper is a key component of lysyl oxidase (LOX), an enzyme that plays a major role in connective tissue development by binding elastin and collagen together in tissues, making it crucial for cardiovascular and respiratory system development, as collagen and elastin represent 50-60% of the composition of the lung and 75% of the skin.
Finally‚ copper works to produce both RNA and myelin, assisting in the synthesis of phospholipids in order to form myelin sheaths‚ the cellular layers that allow nerve cells to efficiently transport the electrical impulses that tell those cells what to do.
Copper (glycinate) provides a highly bioavailable form of copper that may be easier for your body to absorb due to the copper being chelated with glysine.
Every capsule provides two milligrams of copper – sourced from natural earthen ore – for a mild boost.
