Most importantly for health is its biological role within the body. Within the human body copper acts as as a mineral that can be found only in “trace” amounts but is still considered an essential nutrient.
The health benefits of Copper are extensive, firstly, the promotion of normal energy metabolism, required for aerobic respiration. Cytochrome c oxidase uses copper to bind oxygen and through numerous steps following this, produces energy. Secondly, copper a divalent atom itself (Cu2+), helps the normal and regulated normal transport of another divalent atoms such as iron (Fe2+) in the body. Thirdly, Copper is used for the normal function of the nervous system and connective tissue. Copper acts as a co-factor for many enzymes that play a vital role in the central nervous system structure. Copper is also required in processing and creation of Vitamin C.
