Pure Encapsulations Copper (glycinate) offers support for the metabolism and cells. Your body needs copper since it is an essential trace mineral that supports its overall functioning. It is involved in many important physiological processes. These processes include energy metabolism red blood cell formation and more. Copper promotes the absorption of iron an important mineral. As a result it plays a role in forming hemoglobin and red blood cells. Red blood cells deliver oxygen to the body parts that need it. In addition copper is a key component of lysyl oxidase. Lysyl oxidase is an enzyme that binds elastin and collagen together in tissues while also helping the respiratory system function. Finally copper works to produce both RNA and myelin; it helps in the synthesis of phospholipids in order to form myelin sheaths which are the cellular layer that allow nerve cells to efficently transport the electrical impulses that tell those cells what to do.
Recommended use: 1 capsule, 1-2 capsules per day in divided doses with meals or as directed by a healthcare professional.
Essential Trace Minerals
Essential trace mineral supplement
Helps promote energy metabolism
Supports numerous physiological processes
Copper (citrate) is a dietary supplement that helps activate enzymes that are important to energy metabolism. Copper may also facilitate iron absorption to help formulate hemoglobin and red blood cells.
What Is It? Copper is an essential trace mineral that supports a number of crucial physiological processes.*
Uses For Copper Overall Health: Copper activates a number of enzymes important to energy metabolism. It is the key mineral in lysyl oxidase, an enzyme that weaves together collagen and elastin. Copper assists in the formation of hemoglobin and red blood cells by facilitating iron absorption. It is a key component of two key antioxidant enzymes, ceruloplasmin and superoxide dismutase. It is also used in the production of RNA and the synthesis of phospholipids for formation of myelin sheaths.
