Copper

The mineral salts of copper have many different functions in the body. The body cannot produce copper itself. For this reason, the intake of copper through food, food supplements or medicines is of essential importance. The German Nutrition Society (DGE) recommends a copper intake of 1 to 1.5 mg per day for adolescents and adults1.

Copper contributes towards the preservation of normal connective tissue, a normal energy metabolism and a normal function of the nervous system. Furthermore, copper is responsible for a normal function of the immune system, a normal iron transport within the body, a normal skin and hair pigmentation. In addition, copper protects the cells from oxidative stress.

Copper can be administered in the form of tablets, effervescent tablets, drinking granules, direct granules, powders, capsules, coated tablets and injection solutions.
