Copper is a trace mineral found in all body
tissues. Copper Proteinate is vital in making elastin, a chief component of the elastic
muscle fibers found throughout the body, especially in the heart and
lungs. It is needed to build strong bones, connective tissue and joints.
Copper Proteinate is needed for the proper function of the enzyme lysyl oxidase,
which is required in the cross linking of collagen and elastin. Copper
deficiency is the major known cause of aortic aneurysms in a wide
variety of animals, and evidence strongly links it to aortic aneurysms
