Copper essential mineral for brain health


Correct copper levels are essential to the health of your brain; even when you rest, according to researchers at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory..Lead researcher Chris Chang said “We’ve identified copper as a dynamic modulator of spontaneous activity of developing neural circuits when you sleep”.

Copper has been previously established as being essential to brain health. It is a crucial ingredient in the enzyme that activates neurotransmitters in response to a variety of stimuli.

Liquid mineral supplements may be helpful to those who do not consume a balanced and healthy diet. Diseases such as Parkinson’s may be linked to insufficient levels of copper in the body.
