Copper

What are the health benefits?

Copper is a cofactor for several enzymes involved in energy production, iron metabolism, neuropeptide activation, connective tissue synthesis, and neurotransmitter synthesis. It is involved in the regulation of gene expression, brain development, pigmentation, and immune system functioning. It is crucial in the formation of collagen - a protein that helps make up your bones and tissues. It is also essential for absorbing iron from the gut. When copper levels are low, the body may absorb less iron, which may lead to anaemia. 

Which are the food sources?
