Copper sebacate is an especially bioavailable form of copper.
Copper is an essential cofactor in a number of enzymatic reactions with varied physiologic roles. These include melanin production
(hair and skin color), wound healing, and red blood cell production. Copper is needed in some antioxidant enzymes that prevent
damage from free radicals and inflammation. It appears to be particularly important in the maintenance of connective tissue
Although severe copper deficiency is rare, the diet of many Americans supplies less than the RDA; so, moderate deficiency
is common. Possible symptoms include loss of color in the skin and hair, anemia, inflammation, arthritis, weakening of connective
tissue, cardiovascular damage, and shortage of white blood cells.
