Zinc/Copper Supplement and Its Role as Antioxidant and In Reducing Cholesterol Levels

It has always been known that trace elements are important in nutrition and health. Recent research is pointing towards the benefits of two of these trace elements as antioxidants and anti-atherogenic minerals. These two are zinc and copper. Due to this realization, zinc/copper supplements have been introduced in the market.

Effects of Zinc/Copper Supplement

There are two main effects of zinc/copper supplement are in the cardiovascular system and the liver. These determine the health benefits of this dietary supplement.

Cardiovascular system

The cardiovascular system consists of the heart and blood vessels. With time, there is excessive accumulation of cholesterol on the walls of the blood vessels including those supplying the heart. This leads to narrowing of these vessels, a situation, which can cause hypertension, and coronary artery disease both of which are associated with unfavorable outcomes.

Zinc/copper supplement has been shown to reduce the blood concentration of cholesterol. Research carried out by several institutions around the world indicate that zinc diminishes the fat that has already accumulated in the walls of the blood vessels and also maintain plasma levels of all lipids.

Antioxidant Effects

During its normal metabolism, the body produces several toxins, the most common of which are reactive oxygen species (ROS). These include superoxide, hydrogen peroxide and halogen oxides. These can damage the cells by causing mutations and therefore predispose to cancer formation.

Zinc/copper supplements induce the effects of erythrocyte superoxide dismutase, which reduces the concentration of superoxide in the blood. Thus, it works as a powerful antioxidant of the body and therefore maintains health. When taken at the correct doses, this supplement can rally change the course of health.

The reason why zinc and copper are used together is that the former reduces the blood levels of copper. Administration of the combination maintains the ratio between zinc and copper while providing the beneficial effects.
