Copper is an essential trace mineral that has anti-microbial, antioxidant, anti-carcinogenic and anti-inflammatory properties. Although you need it in traces, its presence is crucial

 

Here’s How Copper Helps Your Body

 

Not only does copper neutralize toxins but it also ensures that your organs function properly and that metabolic processes carry on smoothly. 

 

It regulates liver and kidney function and ensures that your body absorbs nutrients from food.

 

Copper helps you maintain a healthy heart. It prevents the formation of plaque or blocks in the arteries and ensures a better flow of blood to the heart. A copper deficiency leads to higher levels of cholesterol, homocysteine, blood pressure and uric acid.

 

Copper is a powerhouse of antioxidants and prevents premature signs of ageing. It protects the skin from free radical damage. It reduces the appearance of wrinkles, age spots, fine lines and sagging skin. It also helps in the production of healthy skin cells. 

 

Copper is essential for smooth functioning of the brain. The myelin sheath protects the axons present in neurons, enabling the transmission of impulses. And the myelin sheath indirectly depends on copper to regenerate itself. This wonder mineral helps in the production of phospholipids that help form myelin sheaths.

 

The anticonvulsant property of copper helps prevent seizures. Inadequate copper during pregnancy may lead to an incomplete brain and nervous system in unborn babies.

 

The anti-inflammatory properties of copper helps relieve body aches and pains caused due to inflammation. This anti-inflammatory property also helps treat other problems like acne, asthma, sinusitis, periodontitis, hay fever, cancer and inflammatory bowel disease. Copper is useful to treat arthritis as well as rheumatoid arthritis.

 

Copper is the main component in the creation of melanin that defines the colour of your eyes, skin and hair. Melanin keeps your skin safe from sun damage, wound healing and scar recovery. It also helps in the production of new cells that replenish the top layer of your skin. The production of new cells will help you to get a flawless smooth skin.

 

So now that you know how important copper is for your body, you need to make sure that you get an adequate supply of this wonder mineral. You can do this by either regularly drinking copper-infused water or by eating the right kinds of copper-rich foods.
