Wearing copper has several important benefits:
First, copper is an essential mineral for humans, and wearing copper jewelry has the benefit of slow copper absorption- perfect for proper assimilation. It’s also been claimed that headaches, arthritis, joint pain, and zinc deficiency can be effectively treated with the aid of copper or brass jewelry.
Of course, there is some conflict with these claims, but I have experienced joint relief myself from using copper jewelry.
It really worked for me, and lots of other people.
The Green Skin
So if copper is considered healing and has been used for so long in human history, why is it that people have learned to live with green skin? After all, wearing something like a copper bracelet or anything else that’s in close contact with the skin sometimes produces a greenish hue- which is kinda strange, right?
Actually, it’s totally normal.
Copper reacts naturally with our salty skin, which can be created whenever we sweat. This just means you have to be aware of when you might be working out or in the sun. But copper can also react to acidic environments- and your body acidity is related to your diet. Junk food, processed food, and lots of red meat will make your body acidic.
The more acidic your diet and body, the more likely you are to get sick.
This can make copper jewelry a terrific way to gauge whether or not you need to change your diet or if you’re just on the cusp of coming down with something.
It can be very useful!
The Benefits of Copper
Copper is a natural anti-inflammatory. This means that it helps reduce the swelling and the pain associated with the long lasting battle of arthritis by natural means rather than pain killers.
2) Hair and Eyes
Melanin, an important component of natural dark pigment, can only be produced when melanocytes and tyrosinase (formed from copper) bind. Basically, it helps hair, eyes, and skin stay healthy and youthful. It even helps to prevent grey hair.
3) Brain Stimulation
Food with high copper content is often referred to as “brain food”. It has a an important part to play in the brain because it helps certain proteins in the brain transport faster across membranes. In several studies, copper has been linked with higher creative thinking, demonstrating that copper allows neural pathways to develop in unique ways.
4) Slow Aging
Because copper is a powerful antioxident, it helps greatly to slow the aging process. One of the primary causes of aging, free radicals, is combated quite effectively with the enzymes created by copper. This can help to prevent different types of macular degeneration, cancer, and kidney malfunctions.
5) Iron Uptake
Copper assists in the absorption of iron through the blood barrier in the intestinal track and the release of the release of the storage sites like the liver; this can help to guarantee healthy blood and oxygenated organs.
How to Take Copper
Copper can usually be absorbed through a proper diet…however, light supplementation can help in significant ways. By wearing copper bracelets or jewelry, the skin absorbs just enough copper to be beneficial to the body (supplements are can be overwhelming to the system). This method especially helps with arthritis to reduce pain.
You can also take copper it by drinking water from a copper urn when waking, and if recommended by a doctor, oral supplementation.
