Solgar Chelated Copper provides copper bisglycinate, a chelated form of copper for high absorption and utilisation by the body. Amongst its many functions, Chelated Copper aids in the formation of bone, haemoglobin and red blood cells and works in balance with zinc and vitamin C to form elastin, an important skin protein. Copper is crucial for all the body's healing processes, energy production, hair and skin colouring and taste sensitivity. Copper is also essential for the formation of collagen.
Chelated Copper Tablets contains the essential mineral copper which is required for an optimal working metabolism, a healthy immune system and healthy hair and skin.
Copper is found in all the tissues of the body and it plays a role in the creation of red blood cells as it helps with transporting iron into the cells. Having adequate levels of copper will also aid towards the functioning of the immune system and it will protect your cells from oxidative stress and damage by free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can damage the cells in your body and are associated with premature aging. Copper also benefits a healthy metabolism as it assists the body with converting food into energy.
Copper cannot be made by the body itself and therefore has to be consumed through a healthy and varied diet, containing copper rich foods such as liver, nuts and seeds, seafood and beans. When you diet is rich in zinc, it is even more important that you make sure of an adequate intake of copper as zinc works as antagonist towards this vital mineral.
