is essential for both iron and zinc utilization, as well as for
maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system. Copper, along with
iron, is necessary to produce hemoglobin (the part of the red blood
cell that carries oxygen from the lungs to all the cells in the
body). Copper is necessary for normal development and maintenance
of blood, bone, nerves, connective and other tissues. A deficiency
of this essential trace mineral can cause a variety of disorders.

Copper parallels iron. Iron is the essential element in hemoglobin.
But, without copper, iron is not transported correctly throughout
the body. Iron depends upon copper to become part of the red blood
cells, therefore anemia results from a lack of iron and copper.
The body just can't metabolize iron without the help it gets from
copper. As blood levels of copper drop, iron absorption decreases,
red blood cell production is inhibited, and anemia develops. Supplementation
of both iron and copper is required in the treatment of anemia.
Copper contributes to the structural integrity of connective tissue
throughout the body. Collagen, the protein responsible for bone,
skin, cartilage, and tendon elasticity, integrity, and strength,
requires copper for proper reproduction. It is an important component
of elastin (the connective tissue that gives elasticity to the blood
vessels, lungs, and skin, allowing them to move and stretch with
changes in pressure or movement). Because of copper's role in the
integrity of connective tissue, even a marginal deficiency could
potentially contribute to the onset of aneurysms. Copper activates
numerous enzymes and is involved in the development and maintenance
of the cardiovascular system, the skeletal system and the structure
and function of the nervous system.
of copper deficiency include fatigue, bleeding under the skin,
damage to blood vessels, and an enlarged heart. Anemia is common,
and the number of white blood cells is decreased. The diagnosis
of copper deficiency is based on symptoms and on blood or hair
anaylsis tests that detect low levels of copper and ceruloplasmin
(a protein that contains copper).
