Copper for a Healthy Immune System and Energetic Body

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Copper has a rich history—and a newfound appreciation in modern times. The antimicrobial benefits of copper were first recognized by the Egyptians circa 2600 BC. In Ancient Egypt, the metal was used to sanitize drinking water and treat chest wounds, as well as other infections, scalds, and itching. Like the Egyptians, the Greeks also liked copper. This metal was found in copious quantities on the island of Cyprus, from which copper derives its name. In Ancient Greece, copper was used in wound dressings, particularly for leg ulcers. Dry copper was sprinkled into the dressings of fresh wounds to prevent infections.

The Romans used copper to treat venereal diseases and non-healing chronic ulcers. Intriguingly, during the two great Cholera epidemics during the 19th century, copper workers evaded the outbreak thanks to the metal’s antimicrobial properties.

Here’s a closer look at how copper works to combat infection and potential uses for this wonder metal.

Copper is a mineral which is found throughout the body and you need it to stay healthy. It helps your body make red blood cells and keeps nerve cells and your immune system healthy. It also helps form collagen, a key part of bones and connective tissue. Copper may also act as an antioxidant, reducing free radicals that can damage cells and DNA. Copper helps the body absorb iron. Your body uses copper to carry out many important functions, including making energy, connective tissues, and blood vessels. Copper also helps maintain the nervous and immune systems and activates genes. Your body also needs copper for brain development.  

Many people do not get enough copper in their diet, but it is rare to be truly deficient in copper. Signs of possible copper deficiency include anemia, low body temperature, bone fractures and osteoporosis, low white blood cell count, irregular heartbeat, loss of pigment from the skin and thyroid problems.

Doctors call a copper deficiency in the blood “hypocupremia.” According to the British Medical JournalTrusted Source, the condition is often underdiagnosed. Many people do not get enough copper in their diet

Copper deficiency can be hard for doctors to diagnose because the symptoms are like many other conditions. For example, the symptoms associated with copper deficiency are similar to those of vitamin B-12 deficiency. Low copper levels can affect a person’s immune system and energy levels. Examples include:

always feeling cold
easy bone breakage
easy bruising
getting sick easily or frequently
pale skin
poor growth
skin inflammation
skin sores
unexplained muscle soreness
Very low copper levels can cause problems with muscle movement as well.

Common Uses for Copper

Anemia – Taking copper supplements may help people who have anemia because of copper deficiency. Copper works together with iron to form red blood cells.

Osteoarthritis – Animal studies suggest taking copper by mouth may help prevent and slow arthritis, but evidence in humans is lacking. Copper bracelets are often marketed to people with both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis as a way to relieve symptoms, but there is no evidence they work.

Osteoporosis – There is some slight evidence that taking copper along with zinc, manganese and calcium might help slow the rate of bone loss among postmenopausal women.

Dietary Sources which naturally contain copper:

Seafood, such as oysters, squid, lobster, mussels, crab, and clams
Organ meats, such as beef liver, kidneys, and heart
Nuts and nut butters, such as cashews, filberts, macadamia nuts, pecans, almonds, and pistachios
Legumes, such as soybeans, lentils, navy beans, and peanuts
Chocolate, such as unsweetened or semisweet baker’s chocolate and cocoa
Enriched cereals, such as bran flakes, shredded wheat, and raisin bran
Fruits and vegetables, such as dried fruits, mushrooms, tomatoes, potatoes, sweet potatoes, bananas, grapes, and avocado
Blackstrap molasses
Black pepper
