Copper is essential for the health & strength of the walls of your blood vessels, being important in the formation of collagen & elastin. Decreased copper can make you more vulnerable to an aneurysm. Copper is needed for the formation of catecholamines (certain brain neurotransmitters & adrenal hormones), fatty acid metabolism, iron metabolism, phospholipid synthesis & the production of energy in your body.*

Oral contraceptives may increase copper levels.*

Excessive copper can cause:

  • Confusion, disorientation, memory loss*
  • low moods*
  • Fatigue*
  • sleeplessness*

Measuring blood levels of copper is not an accurate way to assess copper status. Copper is best measured by enzyme tests; either erythrocyte glutathione peroxidase or erythrocyte superoxide dismutase.*

Conditions contributing to copper deficiency are: alcohol, antacids, excessive iron, cadmium, aluminum or mercury, excessive fructose or vitamin C, or chronic diarrhea.

Copper supplementation may be necessary if you have many of the following signs of deficiency.


  • Depression
  • Hair loss
  • Anemia (hypochromic, microcytic)
  • Fatigue
  • Weakness
  • Increased cholesterol
  • Decreased white blood cells (neutrophils)
  • Frequent infections
  • Possible demyelination of nerves(secondary to halting of phospholipid synthesis)
  • Irregular heart beat
  • Emphysema
  • Irritability
  • Nervousness
  • Dermatitis
  • Diarrhea
  • Muscle pain
  • Joint pain
  • Weakened blood vessels
  • Fragile bones/osteoporosis
  • Respiratory impairment
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Heart attack
  • Patchy depigmentation of the skin

Copper Sebacate is more bioavailable than other forms of copper.

Sebacic acid & reduced glutathione protect the copper from oxidation & facilitate passage through the cell membranes.*
