A colloid  is a substance that is said to be dispersed throughout a different substance evenly on a microscopic level. Colloidal systems normally have two different phases, a dispersed and a continuous phase. Copper colloids consist of nanometer particles of pure copper in a fluid. If the fluid used, which is most common, is water; the colloid will be known as a hydrocolloid. In a copper hydrocolloid, copper represents the dispersed phase, water is the continuous phase. Direct effects of colloidal copper include the enrichment of the mineral content of the blood, cleaning arteries and veins, and generally boosting the circulatory system.

 

Copper is one of the essential minerals for biological function. It is a micronutrient that is required for the formation of Red Blood Cells, protein metabolism, RNA production, enzyme activity, and the color of hair and skin. Copper’s function in coloring skin and hair comes from its ability to convert tyrosine into melanin, the hair and skin pigment.

 

The sub-micrometric particle sizes of colloidal copper are smaller than membrane pores in the human body which prevents toxic buildup of copper. This property allows elemental copper to travel throughout the body and reach the cells where it is needed such as in the cappilairies.

 

Copper is an essential trace element for humans and animals. Although Hippocrates is said to have recommended copper compounds as early as 400 B.C., scientists are still uncovering new information regarding the functions of copper in the human body  e.g. that it facilitates the activity of several enzymes. The mineral provides a role in the development and maintenance of the cardiovascular system, including the heart, arteries, and other blood vessels, the skeletal system, and the structure and function of the nervous system, including the brain.

Copper is a critical functional component of a number of essential enzymes, known as cuproenzymes. The copper-dependent enzyme, cytochrome c oxidase, plays a critical role in cellular energy production. Another cuproenzyme, lysyl oxidase, is required for the cross-linking of collagen and elastin, which are essential for the formation of strong and flexible connective tissue. The action of lysyl oxidase helps maintain the integrity of connective tissue in the heart and blood vessels and plays a role in bone formation.

Copper is involved in respiration and the synthesis of hemoglobin. It is essential in the production of collagen and the neurotransmitter noradrenalin. It is an important blood antioxidant and prevents the rancidity of polyunsaturated fats  it is involved in numerous enzyme systems that break down or build up body tissues. It plays a role in the production of the skin pigment melanin by converting the amino acid tyrosine. The mineral is essential for the synthesis of phospholipids, which are a component of the myelin sheath that surrounds nerves.

Copper works with iron in the development and maintenance of red blood cells and their protein hemoglobin.

Shelf Life

Colloids made from non-noble metals such as copper have a limited shelf life, typically 4 to 6 months, once the bottle is opened. Air, which includes oxygen, enters the bottle when it is opened. The oxygen will cause the metal nanoparticles to slowly oxidize converting them into their ionic state. For this reason, it is best to purchase a bottle size that you would expect to consume in 4 months or less.

 

Precautions

You should not use this product if you are allergic to copper!

 

Copper should probably not be taken by individuals with hemochromatosis because copper increases the body’s ability to absorb iron. Hemochromatosis, the most common form of iron overload disease, is an inherited disorder that causes the body to absorb and store too much iron. The extra iron builds up in organs and damages them. Without treatment, the disease can cause these organs to fail. Allergic reactions to copper, while not unheard of, are uncommon. Someone having an allergic reaction to copper would not be able to handle a metallic copper object such as copper jewelry without causing an allergic reaction. Those who are uncertain if they are allergic to copper should apply a few drops to the back of the hand to see if an allergic reaction results.

 

Dosage

The dosage for colloidal copper is typically one tablespoon (15mL) daily to help maintain health. Up to three tablespoons per day may be taken to help fortify the immune system when needed. Actual dosage will vary based on individual needs. A 250 mL bottle will provide one months supply when used at a dosage of one tablespoon per day.

 

Product Description

About .1 mg of .9999 copper produced at approx. 15 ppm

This mineral is also necessary in the development of healthy nerves and joints.

Even a mild copper deficiency impairs the ability of white blood cells to fight infection. Copper is necessary for proper absorption of iron in the body, and it is found primarily in foods containing iron. If the body does not get a sufficient amount of copper, hemoglobin production decreases and copper-deficiency anemia can result.

 

One of the first signs of copper deficiency is osteoporosis. Copper is essential in the formation of collagen, oneof the first signs of copper deficiency is osteoporosis. Copper is essential in the formation of collagen, one of the fundamental proteins making up bones, skin and connective tissue. Other possible signs of copper deficiency include anemia, baldness, diarrhea, general weakness, impaired respiratory function, and skin sores. A lack of copper can also lead to increased blood fat levels.

 

Various enzyme reactions require copper as well. Copper is needed as a cross-linking agent for elastin and collagen, as a catalyst for protein reactions, and for oxygen transport. Since copper is not manufactured by the body, it must be taken in through the diet or supplementation. For the body to work properly, it must have a proper balance of copper and zinc; and imbalance can lead to thyroid problems. In addition, low (or high) copper levels may contribute to mental and emotional problems. Copper deficiency may be a factor in anorexia nervosa, for example.

 

Note: Although copper intake is required for health and deficiency is more likely than not, an excessive intake of copper can lead to toxicity and may have symptoms of depression, irritability, nausea and vomiting, nervousness, and joint and muscle pain. Ingesting 10 milligrams or more at a time may cause nausea and sixty milligrams generally results in vomiting. Children can be affected at much smaller dosage levels.

 

Copper (Cu) is a heavy metal whose unbound ions are toxic. Colloidal Copper is not ionic but consists of clusters of atoms called nanoparticles and thus does not have the toxicity of ionic copper.Copper is an essential micro-nutrient, needed at 1.3 milligrams per day, according to the International Copper Association. It is needed for red blood cell formation, protein metabolism, the production of RNA, enzyme activity, hair and skin color, and the health of the nerves. Colloidal Copper has been used as a remedy for gray hair, burns, arthritis, parasites and viral and bacterial infections. Colloidal Copper has been found helpful against multi-cellular parasites such as malaria, Ring-worm, Cryptosporidium, Toxoplasma, chronic bladder infections where bacteria have formed a multi-cellular biofilm.

 

Copper increases iron assimilation; iron and copper work together in the formation of hemoglobin and red blood cells. Anemia can be a copper deficiency symptom. Various enzyme reactions require copper. Copper influences protein metabolism and general healing, improves vitamin C oxidation and is integral in the formation of RNA. Low or high copper levels can be found in those with mental and emotional problems. Copper helps rid the body of parasites such as ring worm, taenia, and is beneficial for graying and thinning hair. Almost every daily diet contains 2 to 3 mg of copper, only about half of which is absorbed. Any copper absorbed in excess of metabolic requirements is excreted through the bile, probably via hepatic lysosomes. On average, an adult has about 150 mg of copper in the body, of which about 10 to 20 mg is in the liver.
