Is a mineral that is found throughout the body. It helps the body make red blood cells and keeps nerve cells and the immune system healthy. It also helps form collagen, a key part of bones and connective tissue.
Copper may also act as an antioxidant, reducing free radicals that can damage cells and DNA. Copper helps the body absorb iron, and the body also needs copper to make energy.
Animal studies suggest that taking copper by mouth may help prevent and slow arthritis, but evidence in humans is lacking.
There is some slight evidence that taking copper, along with zinc, manganese, and calcium might help slow the rate of bone loss.
