When it comes to copper supplementation, it’s important to understand the basics about the two forms of copper.
In the body, copper shifts between cuprous (copper I) and cupric (copper II). There are parts of the body that preferentially utilize each of the forms of copper to support various vital functions.
At the level of the cell membrane, copper II interacts with specific receptor sites, where it is converted to copper I (the cuprous form) and transported into the cell. In contrast, when copper I reaches the cell membrane, it’s taken in without any conversion (or energy) needed. Once transported through the membrane and bound to certain proteins, copper I is guided to the mitochondria, where the energy molecule ATP is made.
Most supplements provide the copper II form of copper – usually as an oxide, mineral salt, organic salt, or amino acid chelate. However, the solubility and absorption of these copper II supplements vary.
Unlike any other supplement, Sovereign Copper® Bio-Active Copper Hydrosol™ offers the body copper in both forms: copper I and copper II. This distinguishing feature makes all the difference when it comes to absorption.
Here’s how it works.
By providing the body (and therefore the cell membranes) both copper I and copper II, the hydrosol is more bio-available to the body eliminating the extra work that must be done to convert it from one state to the other.
This increases the probability of cellular absorption. It essentially opens two pathways into the cell – and one of those pathways (copper I) is remarkably simple, preserving energy.
Additionally, both areas of the cell membrane can process the two forms of copper at the same time with the same outcome. That outcome includes making more copper available to the mitochondria for increased energy production. It also allows other substances to perform duties outside of the cell for the tissue collectively.
Also unique to Sovereign Copper Bio-Active Copper Hydrosol, it provides the copper in tiny clusters of atoms. These clusters are small enough for absorption into the cell, and they act as a catalyst to cellular energy. This results in increased efficiency and work performance, contributing to a longer lifespan of the cell.
