Copper is an essential trace mineral with the highest concentration found in
the brain. It is responsible for a variety of enzymatic reactions in the body
and deficiency is not common because copper water pipes in many homes and copper
cookware are sources of dietary copper. The absorption and utilization of copper
can be hindered by elevated intakes of copper antagonists such as zinc, iron,
vitamin C and fructose sweeteners.
The intake of copper in sebacate salt form improves its bioavailability.*
Tests have shown it to be the only form of copper able to promptly restore the
function of the copper enzymes tyrosinase, lysyl oxidase, and ceruloplasmin.*
Superoxide dismutase (SOD) is the copper-containing enzyme responsible for the
breakdown of the superoxide free radical produced as a by-product of
irradiation. We believe the sebacate form of copper is safer because it
generally does not lead to free radical generation.*
Suggested use: As a dietary supplement, 1 capsule daily with a meal,
or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
