Copper is an important mineral found in plants and animals – and obviously in us, humans. Copper is used by our body to construct bones, the nervous system, joints, and is also aiding the circulatory system.
Copper deficiency can be caused by a diet that lacks foods containing copper or from ingesting high doses of vitamin C or zinc, both of which can block copper absorption.
Oral supplements can overload the body with unnecessary copper and can do damage in people who are unable to process large quantity of copper supplement. For this reason some people finds it is beneficial to wear copper jewellery for the purpose of having a small amount of copper absorbed through the skin constantly.
Magnetic bangles provides a winning combination of pure copper with magnets. Our copper bangles are 99.9% copper – which is the definition of pure copper.
