Benefits of Copper Bracelets
Importance of Copper for Healing
Most people are unaware of the importance of copper intake in a daily diet. Copper is an essential mineral needed in the body, for many different reasons. Among these are its central role in protecting us from cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, free radicals, and cancer. Copper is also vital for keeping our skin, blood vessels and connective tissue supple and elastic, and has been shown to aid healing of damage/disease in these areas of the body.
Many nutrition surveys have found diets of approximately 25% of adolescents, adults, and people over 65 do not meet the recommended daily nutrient intake for copper. These studies also suggest long-term acquired copper deficiency is under-diagnosed and much more common than suspected.

Copper Bracelet Benefits
Wearing a Sabona Copper Bracelet allows pure copper to be absorbed through the skin on a constant basis. This method releases copper into blood circulation very efficiently – some say even more so than dietary copper. As more information becomes available, alternative health care and home remedies are gaining popularity. There is ever-increasing evidence that copper has anti-inflammatory properties, and it is this healing characteristic that is of particular interest to people who suffer from aches and pains.
Professional Opinions of Copper Bracelets for Health Benefits
Copper has been used in medicine for thousands of years by almost every civilization. The first record of its use can be found by the Ancient Egyptian in the Smith Papyrus Papers, a medical text written between 2600 and 2200 B.C. which records the use of copper to treat infected chest wounds and sterilize drinking water. However, it is only since the 1960's that modern medicine has investigated the healing properties of this unique metal. Health publications include copper bracelets as a way to ease the pain from arthritis in some people who get an insufficient amount of copper from their diet.

In the opinion of Dr. John Sorenson, a Professor of Chemistry who has researched copper for over 30 years, there is a benefit to wearing a Copper Bracelet.
"I see people wearing copper bracelets, and they're wearing them because it helps them, I think copper may have a role. It's possible that a copper deficiency does increase joint inflammation, and it doesn't seem that supplementing copper in the diet has the same effect as wearing it." - Dr. Elson Haas, M.D.
