Vitacopper™ is a food supplement that contains Copper as the active ingredient.
The human body needs minerals in addition to other classes of food in existence. These minerals essentially act as coenzymes for body enzymes. Copper is one of those minerals needed in the body in trace quantities. Most of the copper in our body is stored in organs like the kidney, liver, skeletal muscles, and the heart. It is regarded as an essential trace mineral.
What Does Copper Do for Your Body?
Copper like most minerals has so many beneficial effects on the body. The majority of the beneficial effect of copper is based on its coenzyme property.
CONTRIBUTES TO MAINTENANCE OF NORMAL CONNECTIVE TISSUES
One of the vital importance of copper to the body is ensuring the normal production of connective tissues like collagen and elastin. Cooper is essential because it is a coenzyme for a major enzyme involved in the synthesis of collagen and elastin.
CONTRIBUTES TO NORMAL ENERGY-YIELDING METABOLISM
Copper plays a role in metabolism especially the metabolism of Haemoglobin, Collagen, Glucose and other energy-generating metabolic pathways.
CONTRIBUTES TO NORMAL FUNCTIONING OF THE NERVOUS SYSTEM
Copper helps to ensure the proper functioning of the nervous system because it contributes significantly to the formation of the central nervous system. It also helps in the formations of myelin sheath which helps to insulate the neurons enduring faster conduction of impulses.
CONTRIBUTES TO NORMAL SKIN AND HAIR PIGMENTATION
Cooper plays an important role in ensuring good skin development and hair pigmentation. This is because some of the raw materials needed for the synthesis of skin and hair need copper as a coenzyme. For example synthesis of collagen.
CONTRIBUTES TO NORMAL IRON TRANSPORT IN THE BODY
Copper participates in heme synthesis which is essential for the production of hemoglobin. It also affects iron transport positively. In the process of heme, synthesis iron is usually absorbed.
CONTRIBUTES TO THE NORMAL FUNCTION OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
The immune system also needs a trace of copper for optimum performance. It helps to strengthen humoral and cell-mediated immunity.
CONTRIBUTES TO THE PROTECTION OF CELLS FROM OXIDATIVE STRESS
Copper can help protect cells of the body from oxidative stress. This is because copper can act as an antioxidant which helps to continuously oxidize free radicals that may damage cell membrane and ultimately cells.
Symptoms of copper deficiency
The deficiency of copper is a result of the reduced intake of copper in meals, this can be remedied by taking Vitacopper™. Deficiency symptoms of copper may manifest as any of the following:
Weakness and tiredness.
- Persistent weakness and tiredness may be a result of copper deficiency. This is because copper is essential in absorbing iron which combines with hemoglobin to transport oxygen. Energy generation in the body requires oxygen. This may be impaired in copper deficiency.
- Many things could be responsible for lowered immunity, part of it is copper deficiency. Copper plays a vital role in maintaining immunity.
Premature grey hair.
- Copper is essential for producing pigmentation for the hair.
- Unhealthy and pale skin may also be a sign of copper deficiency.
All of these deficiency could be corrected by taking Vitacopper™
