Benefits of wearing copper:
Wearing copper bracelets for medicinal benefits has a long history, all the way back to ancient Egypt, reports the “Gale Encyclopedia of Alternative Medicine.”
You may find copper bracelets in health food stores and holistic healing centers today. Despite their popularity, scientific data backing up the claims of healing are lacking. For those who advocate the use of copper bracelets, proposed benefits focus on reducing joint inflammation and easing pain. Unless you have an allergy to the metal, a copper bracelet is unlikely to have detrimental side effects and you may be pleasantly surprised.
Benefits experienced by users:
- Ease of joint stiffness
- Ease of joint pain
- Mineral Supplementation
Researchers at Scientia Press advocate the healing properties of copper bracelets, attributing their benefits to the body’s absorption of trace minerals into the bloodstream. Through a process called transdermal micronutrition (TDM), Scientia Press explains that microminerals of iron and zinc, present in the copper, combine with sweat on the skin. From there, the body absorbs these minerals, and if the patient was deficient in these minerals to begin with, he may now feel better.
