The Health Benefits of Copper
There are many health benefits of copper. It is an essential element for bone strength, heart health, immune health and much more.

Copper deficiency can lead to iron deficiency and problems with nervous and immune system functions. Too much or too little copper can affect how brain functions work and have been linked to neurological diseases and Wilson’s disease (a condition in which too much copper forms in the organs).

Health Benefits 
Copper plays an important role in maintaining a healthy body and has a variety of health benefits.

Anti-Inflammatory Properties 
Studies on animals have suggested that maintaining copper levels in the body may delay or even prevent arthritis. This is why some people wear copper gloves, bracelets, and other accessories made of copper. However, studies conducted in volunteers with arthritis have shown no benefit from wearing copper jewelry.

Antioxidant Properties 
Research studies have found that copper has antioxidant properties. Since copper contains antioxidants, it may reduce the production of free radicals. Free radicals are known for damaging cells and causing diseases, especially cancer.
