What is Copper?

It may be considered a “trace” mineral, but its role in supporting health is considerable. Copper is an essential mineral that works with iron to help the body form red blood cells. In relation to other nutrients, your body only needs a small amount of copper—but that little dose accomplishes quite a bit.*
