(*) See References and Disclaimer at the bottom of the page.

Our Natural Home Cures Freeze Dried Nopal Powder Capsules (Prickly Pear) contain copper, an essential ingredient in the formation of red blood cells(1*).

Copper also partners with Vitamin C  to produce elastin, a protein found in all the connective tissues of the body and the skin(2*).

Copper is also vital in producing the neurotransmitters peptidyl alpha-amidating monooxygenase and dopamine hydroxylase(3*).

A copper deficiency may result in decreased glucose tolerance, anemia, lowered defense against infections, and abnormal carbohydrate metabolism and may also lead to heightened glucose, triglycerides, and serum cholesterol levels(4*)Copper plays a role in iron metabolism, storage, and absorption(5*).

The signs of copper deficiency are similar to those of iron deficiency: general malaise, fatigue, and lightheadedness(6*),(7*).
