Copper & Its Beneifts

Metabolism & Digestion Supporting Weight Loss

Copper is essential to the metabolic processes. It also has properties that stimulate peristalsis-which is a key process involved in digestion & flushing the digestive tract. In addition, recent studies show that copper plays a key role in metabolizing fat helping your body breakdown fat and eliminate it as efficiently as possible. Combined with a healthy lifestyle, ensuring a well-balanced diet which includes sufficient copper intake can be a natural way to help maintain a healthy weight.

Supports the Immune System 

Copper is well-known for its anti-bacterial andanti-inflammatory properties. Copper is involved in several immune enzymes and is a great immunity booster. Studies also show copper to be anti-bacterial, helping to ward off disease. Much of the reason copper vessels are used so widely in India (where water-borne diseases are prevalent). Recent studies have shown that storing water in a copper vessel can decrease the risk of bacterial contamination in water, including by fighting E.coliand S.aureus, two bacteria that are commonly found in our environment and are known to cause severe illnesses in the human body.

Skin – Anti Ageing

Sufficient intake of copper can help decrease the appearance of fine lines and slow the appearance of ageing, Copper plays a role in the synthesis of myelin, melanin and collagen which helps to prevent the appearance of wrinkles and pigmentation. Copper water is rich in anti-oxidants which helps to fight off free radicals, protecting your skin against breakouts. It is key in the development of new cells, therefore working in replenishing the skin-promoting a fresh, glowing complexion.

Brain Function

Copper plays an essential role in the health of the human brain and it’s known to aid the fluid transmission of neurons to the brain. The brain works by transmitting impulses from one neuron to another through an area known as the synapses. These neurons are covered by the myelin sheath that acts like a sort of conductive agent. Copper aids in the synthesis of materials that are essential for the formation of these myelin sheaths. This, coupled with natural hydration, contributes to improved brain stimulation.

Nutrient Absorption 

Copper facilitates the absorption of other key minerals and nutrients from the food we eat.


Copper possesses anti-inflammatory properties and can help prevent conditions such as arthritis by maintaining supple joints.

Supports the Thyroid Gland

Copper cannot be produced within the body and needs to be sourced from external sources. Studies have indicated that copper is necessary for healthy thyroid function and that people that experience problems with their thyroid generally suffer from low levels of copper. While copper deficiency is most common with people that suffer from hyperthyroidism(over-active thyroid gland), copper deficiency is also common with people that experience hypothyroidism (under-active thyroid gland). Copper is one of the most important minerals and is essential in order for your thyroid gland and body to function properly. In addition, copper aids the body’s absorption of iron, which is essential to maintain healthy iron levels and prevent anaemia.

Cardiovascular Health

Studies have suggested that copper helps minimize the risk of developing heart disease, helps regulate blood pressure, and lowers cholesterol levels. Copper also helps prevent the build-up of plaque in the arteries and dilates blood vessels to allow better flow of blood to the heart. Copper supports the efficient utilisation of iron in the body. This contributes to a healthy red blood cell count and helps in regulating bloodpressure.
