Copper is an essential mineral that acts as a cofactor for several enzymes and aids in many biological processes including energy production, neurotransmitter synthesis, and gene expression. It is also involved in building blood vessels, brain development, immune system support, and acts as an antioxidant, removing free radicals from the body.
Copper, along with iron, is critical for production of new red blood cells and the two work synergistically when taken together. Only a small amount of copper is stored in the body and supplies must be regularly restored through diet and supplements. *
