Copper is an essential trace mineral that is important for bone formation and resorption (bone loss). Copper is linked with the generation of mesenchymal stem cells that develop osteoblasts in the body, leading to bone development. Copper and zinc are required in appropriate ratios in the body – usually 10-15 mg of zinc for every 1 mg of copper.
Research recommends that more attention be focused on the dietary trace elements, such as copper, whereby even a mild deficiency has been attributed to the cause of postmenopausal osteoporosis. Copper excretion and its subsequent depletion is increased in high sugar/refined flour diets. Even worse, it has been shown that lactose and ingesting copious amounts of dairy (high in calcium) interferes with copper metabolism and that an increase of dairy in your diet might actually be detrimental to your health. Laboratory tests show that copper supplementation suppresses bone loss and is necessary in women at risk or who have been diagnosed with osteoporosis.
