How Copper Bracelets Work

Copper Deficiency


The human body needs copper to function. 

Scientists have discovered that the body needs a healthy ratio of copper to zinc in the blood stream.

 If there is too much zinc and not enough copper, many different health problems can result. The problem is that the body does not need very much copper and even low doses of a copper supplement can be too much. 

Also, copper supplements that are taken orally can wreak havoc on the digestive system. For this reason, copper bracelets are a good option for people with a copper deficiency. The copper is absorbed directly into the blood stream and in smaller doses, helping to keep the delicate balance of zinc to copper in the body. 

Copper's Job


In the blood stream, copper binds together with enzymes. These enzymes are used to aid in the creation of hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is necessary for the body to repair and heal itself. Therefore copper is a vital part of the body's immune system. Without it, the immune system is not working to its full potential. Wearing a copper bracelet can help achieve a healthier immune system.
Copper and Cardiovascular Disease
A deficiency of copper has been linked to high blood pressure. High blood pressure causes many issues, including damage to arteries and aneurysms. Wearing a copper bracelet has been proven to help lower blood pressure. Of course, high blood pressure can not be controlled by just wearing a copper bracelet. Proper diet and exercise are also necessary, along with following any doctor's orders.
Arthritis
One of the most common claims of the copper bracelet for hundreds of years has been that copper bracelets cure joint pain from conditions like arthritis. This was generally accepted for a long time but along the way doctors and scientists began to doubt the truth behind this claim. However, in 1983, Australian doctors G.R. Struthers and D.L Scott from the St. George Hospital conducted studies on different alternative methods for relieving arthritis pain. Their results showed that arthritis sufferers noticed significant relief from joint pain when wearing copper bracelets. While they are not exactly sure why, their research showed that using copper bracelets does help relieve arthritis pain. They concluded that doctors should consider copper bracelets along with other treatment methods for arthritis pain.             

People have worn copper jewelry for thousands of years. Presently, there are some who believe they can receive health benefits from wearing copper bracelets. This idea is not widely accepted by mainstream medicine, but it has endured as a popular folk remedy.

    History

  1. Ancient civilizations in places ranging from the Americas to Egypt used copper extensively. Throughout history people have used copper to make weapons, armor, pots, jewelry and artwork.

    Significance

  2. Copper is essential to human health. The body absorbs copper from foods such as nuts, shellfish and salt. Copper aids in the production of melanin, blood and bone and is used in many other essential bodily functions.

Wearing a copper bracelet is beneficial to people suffering inflammatory afflictions such as arthritis and rheumatism. Copper deficiencies are common in arthritic patients, many not reaching their daily recommended intake of 1.5 to 3 mgs. Dietary copper is not as readily absorbed as copper gaining access to the bloodstream through the wearing of a copper bracelet.

    Significance

  1. Superoxide Dismutase, a copper-dependent enzyme produced by the body, benefits from the copper resources afforded by the wearing of a copper bracelet. This special enzyme reduces inflammation and pain, and needs copper to produce more of the same enzyme. Copper-dependent enzymes are necessary for the repair of tissues that have been damaged by the effects of arthritis.

    Theories/Speculation

  2. Copper bracelets have been used by many civilizations for thousands of years. Copper bracelets are found routinely by archaeologists during digs on ancient sites, and although little is known as to why the ancients actually wore the bracelets, speculation abounds. When copper is absorbed by the body by the use of a copper bracelet or wristband, the electrical and thermal properties and conductive effects the bracelet delivers supplies a similar form of relief as applying heat to the affected area.

    Expert Insight

  3. According to Doctor Helmar Dollwet of the University of Akron believes that the only way for many people to get a sufficient amount of copper is to absorb it through the skin from a bracelet could. Patients in a study who wore copper bracelets absorbed an average of 13 mg of copper during a month.

    Function

  4. Copper deficiency may make a person's hair gray prematurely due to the fact that melanin is a copper-dependent pigment. The wearing of a copper bracelet may prevent graying hair. The cardiovascular system also suffers ill effects from copper deficiency by being more prone to heart attacks and high blood pressure.

    Benefits

  5. Iron and zinc is absorbed easily with the aid of copper, which benefits the immune system. Copper reduces the harmful impact of toxic minerals by competing for absorption, which likely eliminates the harmful toxins
