Most people are severely

Many people think that copper is something we get in excess. Doctors and popular health writers warn us about copper accumulation through copper plumbing and cookware. Some even refer to copper as a toxic mineral.

Copper is a confusing mineral

However, the reality is that most people are copper-deficient. This is a critical deficiency because copper is one of the most important trace minerals in our diet. Copper is essential for many processes in the body, including the production of most proteins, enzymes and hormones.

Copper deficiency is a primary cause of many modern diseases such as coronary heart disease, strokes, atherosclerosis, inflammation, anaemia, old skin and rapid aging, fatigue, grey hair, arthritis, cancers and many psychological, brain and nervous disorders. The widespread appearance of these diseases in the past century coincides with the disappearance of copper from our diets.

Why is copper deficiency not widely acknowledged and copper not widely supplemented? The answer is that it is easily possible to have a severe copper deficiency or a toxic copper overload, depending on the forms of copper that you are getting.

To add to the confusion, hair, saliva and blood tests for copper are deceptive. Studies show that most tests that measure copper excess are misleading, and tests for copper sufficiency give conflicting results.

The healthy forms of copper are severely deficient in our diets. There is no danger of overloading on these forms of copper because any excess is excreted within hours. On the other hand, we suffer widespread exposure to the toxic forms of copper which are difficult to excrete and instead tend to accumulate in the body.

Symptoms of copper deficiency

The hallmark symptoms of copper deficiency are connective tissue disorders (prematurely aged, loose and weak skin), heart disease accompanied by weak/distended/damaged blood vessels, and osteoporosis.
