Zinc and copper are essential minerals critical to the maintenance of good health—cardiovascular and skeletal systems in particular. Zinc is required for metabolism, enzyme function, immunity, and prostate health. Copper is required for energy metabolism, cholesterol balance, antioxidant functions, and more.
Due to the average North American diet, zinc and copper deficiency are common among many adults. And even though the importance of zinc is widely acknowledged, copper’s vital role in the body’s health is often overlooked. The result is an imbalance, with an excess of zinc and a copper deficiency, a ratio which can have serious implications for long-term health.
When zinc is too high relative to copper intake, the excess zinc actually interferes with the activity of enzymes, which depend on copper for their biological function, by stepping into copper’s proper binding sites in the enzymes.
Although zinc supplementation is known to cause copper deficiency, AOR’s formula provides the right amount of both zinc and copper to achieve the necessary balance and the optimal absorption.
Zinc and copper are essential minerals critical to the maintenance of good health. Zinc-Copper Balance™ provides a balanced ratio of zinc to copper, each in various forms in order to ensure optimal absorption.*
