Copper is important as a cofactor for many enzyme systems (including superoxide dismutase [S.O.D.] and other antioxidants), as a catalyst in the synthesis of hemoglobin, and in collagen formation. Copper also helps in energy production, aids in iron metabolism, and protects nerve fibers.

After doing some research into cures for my graves disease I found that most people with this disease have low copper, selenium and vit d3 levels.Too much zinc can lower copper levels in the body so I ceased taking all supplements which contained zinc and started to take 2 of these tables a day with selenium and d3. On top of this I stopped eating all goitrogens which include all soy products and cruciferrous veges like brocolli and spinach etc. Within 2 months my TSH and Thrydoid function began to normalise and within 6 months I was completely cured. I still go for blood tests every 2 months and have started taking 15mg of zinc to every 1g of copper. So far so good :) I chose to never take the thyroid medications but if you have and are planning on stopping your thyroid medications speak to a doctor first, apparently withdrawal can ause very bad side effects if not done correctly.

I found gluconate better than sebacate, and citrate even better than that. I hope the reviewer who thinks these contain 22mg of copper has since realised. If you are very low in copper - avoid mega doses of vit C, reduce sul fur, avoid dairy. To prevent stomach upset, avoid taking with low ph food/drinks. Best taken away from other supps. I have read in plumbers info that copper pipes develop a film that prevents it leaching into water - not a reliable source it would seem.

I bought this because I have a small hair lock that turned white. I am young and hoped it is because I am copper deficient, and so supposed my GP. Well, 3 months later nothing had changed. So, it's either my whiteness doesn't have to do with the lack of copper or the supplement is ineffective. No idea. On the good side, it is tolerated great, no cramps or intestinal disorders. I had to give this less than 5 stars just because it didn't work for my purpose, but, honestly, the rating is not applicable here.

It works for me, initially I tied this, blood serum level increased but just a little, I switched to more expensive Solgar and it didn't work at all - blood serum level drooped, I switched back to this one, increased dose to 3 tabs per day and got normal blood serum level after a while.

The only place I could really find that sells copper (among other things). I am 46 and am constantly being mistaken for someone MUCH younger. I originally started taking the copper because I had heard about copper's ability to help jump start thyroid hormone production. It also helps with collagen production. Anyway, I now will be taking Armour thyroid but will continue to take the copper because it makes my skin look great. I take 3 a day because I have absorption problems from crohn's disease.
