Health Benefits of Copper
Copper is an essential trace mineral and an important nutrient to all plant and animal life. It is needed by the human body in very small amounts. Copper is found in primarily in the bloodstream, on a plasma protein called ceruloplasmin, and is present in all tissues of the body but mostly in the skeleton and muscle.
How does the nutrient affect the body?
Copper helps the body make haemoglobin, which is needed to carry oxygen in red blood cells. It serves as a part of many body enzymes and helps the body produce energy in the cells. It is important in the development of tissues in the bone, lung, and circulatory system. It helps maintain a healthy nervous system.
§ Copper is vital for collagen formation, essential for bone formation and repair, skin formation and repair, and growth/maintenance of many other tissues incorporating collagen.
§ Copper is crucial for nervous system development and is involved in the synthesis of neurotransmitters.
§ Copper is involved in maintaining the balance of other metals in the body, such as zinc and molybdenum.
§ Copper is necessary for maintaining the elasticity of blood vessels and for proper functioning of the immune system
How does copper enter the body?
§ Copper is found in many foods, including shellfish, liver, nuts, red wine and chocolate.
§ You can absorb copper through the air you breathe.
§ You can absorb copper across your skin when it is present in the air, water, soil, or worn against the skin as jewelry.
Copper bracelets were common in ancient societies. Archaeologists have been unearthing copper jewelry for now over 200 years. Worn by Pharaohs, Indian Rajas, Chinese Emperors, Persian Kings, Alexander the Great, and so many others, the copper bracelet has been used by every civilization that had access to it as a medicine and preventative.

It is no secret that copper is a most excellent conductor of electricity, and besides that, the skin is as much an entry point into the body as it is a barrier.
Micro doses of copper enter the body and bolster the immune system, and because it is in contact with the skin, it enters as and when it’s needed (unlike dietary copper).
Other Benefits of Wearing a Copper Bracelet
§ Copper binds to enzymes and aid the formation of haemoglobin in erythrocytes, help form collagen for wound healing, and otherwise improve the body's functioning.
§ Copper is known to optimise the use of iron and zinc in the immune system and the absorption of copper through the skin can correct hidden copper deficiencies can help optimise the body's resistance to disease.
§ Copper competes with toxic minerals for absorption and physiological use, thus reducing their harmful impact and making them more likely to be eliminated.
The effectiveness of copper products for human healing and conditions such as arthritis remains largely untested by rigorous scientific trials. It has been suggested by some that the improvement of patients in response to alternative therapies is a result of the placebo effect. But science recognises the important role copper plays in the health of plants, humans and living species
