As the name implies, Zinc-Copper Balance from AOR provides a clinically-backed ratio of zinc to copper. This balance ensures optimal absorption, and helps address zinc deficiency while reducing the risk of excess zinc levels.
Zinc, an essential mineral with antioxidant properties, can not only be of great benefit to our immune function, but is also involved in the production of sex hormones and has an important role in the health of the prostate gland.
Copper also has an antioxidant role, and is also involved in regulating cholesterol, producing red blood cells and hormones, and much more. But since Zinc and Copper are quite similar in atomic structure, so they compete with one another in our biochemical pathways.
Supplementing with zinc alone can disturb a number of bodily processes which rely on copper, this is why the right balance is key.
