Copper (Anhydrous Cupric Silicate)
Copper is an essential nutrient for the body. Together with iron, it enables the body to form red blood cells and helps maintain healthy bones, blood vessels, nerves, and immune function, and it contributes to iron absorption.
Oysters and other shellfish
Nuts, such as cashews and almonds
Dark leafy greens
Ogan meats, such as kidneys and liver
Cardiovascular health ⁽¹⁾
Neuron signalling ⁽²⁾
Immune function ⁽³⁾
Collagen production ⁽⁵⁾
Antioxidant protection ⁽⁷⁾
It also helps the body form collagen and absorb iron and plays a role in energy production. Most copper in the body is found in the liver, brain, heart, kidneys, and skeletal muscle. Both too much and too little copper can affect how the brain works and impairments have been linked to Menkes, Wilson’s, and Alzheimer’s disease. Deficiency is rare, but it can lead to cardiovascular disease and other problems.
