1. copper for cell respiration
Copper performs vital tasks in the human organism. This includes cell respiration, for example. In this process, the cells are supplied with oxygen for energy production. Even small amounts of copper are sufficient for the body to be adequately supplied.
Copper provides for:
- the neutralisation of free radicals
- the formation of immune cells
- the utilization of iron
- the regulation of hormone balance
- the provision of energy for the metabolism
- the protection of the human organism
- the elasticity of muscles
2. which copper value is normal?
The German Nutrition Society (DGE) recommends a daily copper intake of 1.0 to 1.5 mg for an adult. Children between the ages of one and seven should take in about 0.5 - 1.0 mg of copper per day. Copper is absorbed through the gastrointestinal tract. Most of the copper is absorbed in the duodenum.
3. factors for an increased copper value
Copper levels may be elevated under certain circumstances:
- vegetarian diet
- vegan diet
- heavy smoking
- high stress
- heavy sporting activity
- consumption of stimulants
- interactions of certain medicines
- strict diets
4. copper in the form of food supplements
