Biotrace Zinc & Copper 60ml
Zinc and Cooper are essential minerals meaning that we must get them from our foods in order to make enzymes and other molecules from it as part of our normal cellular function. Zinc and Copper are often taken together to correct imbalances between the two minerals. They are both involved in the two main enzymes that provide the pathways for toxic by-products and pro-oxidants to be removed and neutralised. Any health programme related to supporting detoxification pathways and cancer prevention and treatment should involve the use of Zinc and Copper. Here is a summary of the two minerals and their functions.
Zinc ~ Nearly every enzyme reaction in the brain involves zinc. It is a component of at least 25 enzymes involved in digestion and metabolism, including carbohydrate digestion and phosphorous metabolism. Zinc is essential for general growth and proper development of the reproductive organs and prostate gland function. It may also control the activity of oil glands within the skin. Zinc aids in the synthesis of protein and collagen formation, promotes a healthy immune system. Zinc is also a component of insulin and many vital enzymes. It also will fight and prevent against the formation of free radicals. Zinc also increases the absorption of vitamin A.
Copper – Aids in the formation of bone, haemoglobin, red blood cells. Copper aids in the conversion and transport of iron from the intestinal lumen into red blood cells. Works in balance with zinc and vitamin C to form elastin. Involved in the healing process, energy production, hair and skin colouring and taste sensitivity. Involved in the development and maintenance of the cardiovascular system. Helps maintain the myelin, the insulation that sheaths nerves and aids in the transmission signals from the brain to the body and vice versa. Involved in producing and regulating neurotransmitters in the brain, including norepinephrine. Plays a role in the activation of superoxide dismutase, an antioxidant enzyme that is a free radical scavenger. Copper also protects against oxidative damage within the body.
