About New Roots Copper Citrate 2 mg (100 VCaps)
Copper is an essential mineral with multiple roles yet required in relatively small quantities for the maintenance of good health. It is involved in energy and melatonin production and in the development of conjunctive tissue, and it teams up with iron for red blood cell formation. It also plays a role in gene expression and exerts an antioxidant action.
Copper deficiency has become a concern with the popularity of zinc supplementation for immune enhancement. Elevated levels of Zinc increase the production of metallothionein, an intestinal cell-wall protein which prevents copper absorption. Copper supplementation in citrate form tends to be of the most use by the human body.
