Reddish shiny and very important for our body
From our series: Colloidal metals
Copper is one of the first metals that people were able to use. The semi-precious metal is relatively soft and easy to shape, it conducts electricity and heat very well. We know these facts – but not many people know how important copper is for our bodies.
Copper is a component of many enzymes and therefore a vital trace element. The daily requirement of an adult is 1-1.5 mg. Copper is also needed for blood formation, especially for the formation of hemoglobin (red blood pigment). Copper is also responsible for the absorption of iron in the gastrointestinal tract and is involved in the regular formation of erythrocytes (red blood cells). Copper is a structure-forming element, which builds up connective tissue, collagen fibers and elastin and keeps them in shape. For optimal main protection, melanin is needed and formed when required, with copper playing a central role. It has an immune stimulating and anti-inflammatory effect. Therefore, colloidal copper acts as a fountain of youth – taking it even delays the graying of hair.
What is colloidal copper?
Real colloidal copper is very fine copper particles that float in water and do not form a compound with the water – in contrast to ionic copper solutions. The size of the individual particles is between 1 and 20 nanometers (1 nm = one billionth of a meter). The particles of this liquid dispersion can be created by various manufacturing processes, which have a significant influence on the properties and quality depending on the process.
Benefits of colloidal copper
- Provides structure and elasticity of bones, connective tissue and blood vessels
- Antioxidant effect
- Improves the moisture content of the skin
- Reduces excess hormones
- Activates enzyme metabolism
- Antibacterial and disinfectant effect
- Balances the activity of the thyroid gland
Range of application for colloidal copper
- Helps with anemia, iron deficiency
- After antibiotic therapies, when taking gastric acid inhibitors
- In case of strong oxidative stress, e.g. smoking
- Against disorders of the gastrointestinal tract
- Alleviates histamine intolerance
- Helps with burns and improves wound healing
It all depends on the manufacturing process
With the high-voltage plasma process at 10,000 volts and at approx. 3500 °C, the best possible quality of colloids is achieved when used correctly: smallest particle size, highest energy content, long shelf life, suspended state. It is more effective, more energetic and durable, has fewer deposits and is overdose-free.
Comparison of the manufacturing processes
Ions detach from the electrode material by electrolysis and form a bond with the water.
Tiny colloids are dissolved from the electrode material by plasma evaporation and abruptly cooled (condensed) in the water. The high-energy and electrically charged colloids float in the water without forming a bond with it and constantly release copper ions.
In colloidal copper produced by the high-voltage plasma process, the colloidal particles float, they repel each other, do not deposit and do not form compounds with other substances. One simply excretes them through the urine.
Tip for buying colloidal copper
Colloidal copper may not be declared as food, dietary supplement or medicine. The products are simply sold under the term “colloidal copper”. Therefore, be sure to pay attention to the indication of the manufacturing process. It provides important information about the quality, particle size, concentration, colloid energy and shelf life.
