Copper is an important metal for humans
Copper is the most common metal which has been smelted from its ore. The reason is that copper has a lower melting value than iron. This was around 7000 years ago. It is the first known metal to be used by humans. Although its chemical characteristics aren’t as dull as iron, gold or silver, they are more stable than aluminum and iron. Therefore, copper was able to provide more pure copper for humankind. Copper is actually derived from Latin Cuprum. This was where most of the ancient Roman copper was found. All of us know copper to be a shiny amber metal. We use the term copper for jewelry and hair color.
Copper’s medical benefits
Copper is an essential trace element. A normal human body has 50-120 mg of copper. Copper is an essential element in our bodies. Copper plays a crucial role in the creation of copper proteins as well as various enzymes. REDOX is also important in maintaining normal hematopoiesis. This helps to promote connective tissues formation, maintenance of central nervous system health and protect cells against the ultraoxygen anion damage. In other words, copper deficiency causes the body to stop producing hemoglobin efficiently, which can lead to symptoms similar iron-deficiency.
A copper deficiency could also cause other issues, including reduced white blood cells and lightened hair, patches on the skin, immune system disorders, abnormalities in bone, and others. Perhaps the most concerning concern is that, if there are lower levels of copper lysyloxidase (which contains copper) and collagen and/or elastin in blood vessels walls, this can lead to vessels hardening and becoming brittle.
The therapeutic effects of copper on the cardiovascular system can be accelerated. Nano copper has been used as a medicine for years to supplement dietary therapy.
Copper’s Bacteriostatic Action
Some of the lesser-known benefits that copper has are listed below. Scientists have discovered that copper has the ability to eliminate infections. It and its alloys possess antibacterial and antiviral properties. It is believed that copper ions (charged particles), are released into the environment when microbes land or migrate to copper. They prevent cell respiration, puncture the cell membranes of bacteria and kill the viral cell shell. The continuous antibacterial activity of copper is maintained even through natural oxidation, repeated dry and wet wear. It is completely recyclable and safe to consume. Many copper ions can be used in sterilization processes. Some Nanocopper antibacterial agent agents have been on the markets for some time. A Chilean company also introduced N95 masks from Nano-copper in April.
The Applications Prospect for Nano Copper
Nanoscale copper particles, in addition to these applications, are widely used in high efficiency catalysts and microelectronics industries, metallurgy fields, high temperature ceramics manufacturing area, as well as high-efficiency catalytic converters. Nano copper’s characteristics, which include a large surface area, strong catalysis and high activity, will make it a popular choice in many other fields. (aka. Luoyang
