Copper, a trace mineral, is essential for the production and storage of iron, as well as for growth, maintenance and development of bones and connecting tissue. In combination with zinc, magnesium and calcium, copper helps support bone strength and density, which decline with age.
Copper, like other micronutrients, is found in balanced diets, but the rate of absorption can be reduced by some health conditions. The liver regulates the amount of copper in the blood but will exhaust its supply if copper intake is insufficient.
