Copper is an essential trace element that is vital for human bodies. In the metabolism it is necessary for the functioning of diverse proteins and oxidative enzymes. It is indispensable for the synthesis of haemoglobin, for the healthy functioning of nerves, and for the formation of bones. Moreover, it promotes the development of connective tissue for the heart's circulatory system. According to the recommendations of the World Health Organization, WHO, the human body needs 2-3 g copper daily. Examinations in the USA have shown that only 25% of the tested persons actually receive the recommended amounts of trace elements in their food. The reason for this is the food preparation during which a major portion of trace elements incl. copper gets lost with the cooking water. Clinical situations, which may lead to a lack of copper are premature births, patients getting entirely parenteral nutrition, and children getting very substandard nutrition. The capacity of the granulocytes for phagocytosis and the formation of immuoglobulins is lowered by a shortage in copper.
