All about Copper

January 17, 2020 2 min read

Copper is among the oldest materials used by mankind and has been used for thousands of years. It’s the first metal to be worked into useful tools, weapons, and beautiful jewelry. However, did you know it is also a metal with the power to heal? Ancient cultures recognized copper as a healing mineral and was found useful for its healing powers both internally and externally. Copper is vital for the optimal health of the human body, along with other mineral micro nutrients such as iron, calcium and zinc. The human body contains around 2 mg of copper per kilogram of body mass. There are a variety of ways to incorporate copper into your life and diet, including taking supplements, wearing jewelry and copper-infused clothing, and using copper utensils and drink-ware. However, if you would rather utilize the benefits of copper in its non-pill form, jewelry, copper-rich foods and beverage products are a great way to obtain those trace copper elements. For example, it can be found naturally in many different foods including, meats, seafood, nuts, grains, beans, avocado, beets, and lentils.
