Copper is an essential trace mineral, meaning your body requires the mineral from your diet but only in miniscule amounts. A balanced diet provides all the copper needed; it`s rare for deficiency or toxicity to be a threatening health issue. In your body, several enzymes require copper to complete oxygen-related functions, and the mineral plays a critical role in the absorption of iron, which is needed to synthesize hemoglobin.
