Helps stimulate cellular turn over to reduce fine lines, discolouration disparities and collagen production. Copper deficiency greatly increases the lipid perioxidation of lipoproteins. It increases wound healing rate, as copper is needed to form new blood vessels during angiogenesis. It ensures damaged DNA is removed from injury site. These proteins form the foundation layer of the dermis, when the foundation layer is strong and the ‘links’ aka (desmosome bridges) between tissue and cells are strong the epidermal layer is smooth, plump and elastic.
Clinical research has established that copper minerals are antioxidants and nutrients that counteract the oxidising effect of environmental particles called free radicals. Oxidation causes cellular damage, leading to premature ageing. Copper neutralises these radicals.
