COPPER

Copper increases your energy level by helping in effective iron absorption. It also helps the color of your hair and skin by making the amino acid tyrosine usable so it can work as a pigmenting factor. Copper is essential for your body's use of vitamin C. It also is vital for transforming your body's iron into hemoglobin. Too little and too much copper have a negative effect on your immune system, making you more prone to infections. Your thyroid gland must have just the right balance of copper to properly secrete hormones.
