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.

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.

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.

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.

Taking copper with my iron supplements, just need to be sure of not taking for empty stomage or will suffer of malfeeling and perhaps tummy ache.
Great for better sleep.

"According to the Supplement Facts tab on our Copper Sebacate product page: there will be 3mg of elemental Copper as 22mg of Copper Sebacate. What this will mean is there are 22mg of the total compound Copper Sebacate, and within that compound there will be 3mg of elemental copper." The above is directly from the company as i asked about the front saying 22mg,but 3mg on the back. This explains why you only get 3mg of copper,not 22mg,which is why one tablet every day. This has helped me sleep deeper and longer. 5 hours in a row!! Take just before bed and with as few as possible other supps. Looking forward to seeing if it will reverse grey hair as copper feeds hair color.

RDA is set to 0.9 mg per day, but this is much too low! It should more likely be 2-4 mg per day! I take one tablet once a week, which evens out to 3 mg per day. A bottle of 120 tablets lasts more than two years. I'm perfectly happy with it, and will purchase again when it runs low. I feel safe using copper from Source Naturals, as this brand have been proven OK in tests.
