Copper Glycinate (Chelate) (60 Capsules)
Copper is an essential trace mineral that supports a number of crucial physiological processes.
Copper activates a number of enzymes important to energy metabolism. It is the key mineral in lysyl oxidase, an enzyme that weaves together collagen and elastin. Copper assists in the formation of hemoglobin and red blood cells by facilitating iron absorption. It is a key component of two key antioxidant enzymes, ceruloplasmin and superoxide dismutase. It is also used in the production of RNA and the synthesis of phospholipids for formation of myelin sheaths.
