Copper 2mg - vegan - 180 capsules - bulk pack
Copper is an essential trace element
The body cannot produce copper itself and is dependent on the supply through food or supplements. This food supplement by Vitamintrend provides you with high-dose copper chelate: one capsule contains 2mg copper, which is present as copper bisglycinate; a compound that has very good bioavailability.
Copper in the body
The body stores about 70 - 150mg of this trace element, most of which is present in the bones. The rest is distributed to the muscles, brain and liver.
As copper is part of numerous enzymes, it is involved in a variety of processes. For example, it is part of the enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD) and as such can protect cells or cell membranes from damage caused by free radicals.
Copper also supports the function of the nervous system by participating in the formation of myelin as a component of so-called oxidoreductases. Myelin is essential for the transmission of impulses between nerves.
Copper is further involved in the formation of connective tissue and the endogenous pigment melanin, which is important for the pigmentation of hair and skin. The trace element additionally plays a role in energy metabolism and iron transport.
Food as a source of copper
Vegetable foods are the main suppliers of copper. Cashew nuts, soybeans, hazelnuts, oat flakes, artichokes, black salsify and rose hips are particularly rich in this trace element.
Animal foods that are rich in copper include pork liver, crab, oysters, Emmental and lobster.
