The Dangers of Too Much Copper

What is Copper Toxicity?

  • Copper Toxicity is a build up of stored bio-unavailable copper in the body. The liver is the primary storage location. The brain, a secondary location.
  • Birth control pills, copper IUDs, vegetarian diets, copper piping, and estrogen are just some of the contributing factors that have made copper toxicity a growing epidemic.
  • Though copper is an essential mineral, not all copper is ‘safe’. Copper sulfate used on crops for example is a known toxin. "Excess copper is poisonous to all forms of life, and copper overloading is responsible for several human pathologic processes"[66]. “Copper becomes toxic when it accumulates in the body's tissues in excessive amounts” (Pfeiffer, 1975; 1987)
  • Copper offers many health benefits at a 'healthy' level, however rarely mentioned is that the benefits reverse with excess copper. Energy turns to fatigue. Cognitive clarity turns to brain fog. Fungal control turns to candida. Positive emotions turn to depression and apathy. Other common symptoms include racing mind, insomnia, thyroid hypo-function, burn-out, depression, panic attacks, even Alzheimer's, schizophrenia, and cancer [67] can all also be linked to copper toxicity.
  • The higher the degree of copper accumulation, the higher the degree of bioavailable deficiency.
