Potential Nutrient Deficiencies
The Vitamin Deficiency
The Mineral Deficiency
COPPER is a trace mineral that is essential for many body functions. It plays a vital role in the production of red blood cells, maintaining healthy bones and tissues, and supporting the immune system. COPPER also helps the body in the absorption and utilization of iron, producing energy, and maintaining healthy levels of antioxidants. COPPER deficiency can lead to anemia, bone abnormalities, and impaired immune function.
According to the National Institutes of Health, the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for COPPER is 900 micrograms per day for adult men and women.
NOTE: Higher amounts may be needed with pregnant and breastfeeding women. It is always recommended to consult a healthcare professional before making changes to your diet and nutrient intake.
