Copper is an important metal for humans
Copper is the most common metal which has been smelted from its ore. The reason is that copper has a lower melting value than iron. This was around 7000 years ago. It is the first known metal to be used by humans. Although its chemical characteristics aren’t as dull as iron, gold or silver, they are more stable than aluminum and iron. Therefore, copper was able to provide more pure copper for human civilization. Copper is actually derived from Latin Cuprum. This was where most of the ancient Roman copper was found. All of us know copper to be a shiny amber metal. We use the term copper for jewelry and hair color.
The medical value of copper
Copper is an essential trace element. A normal human body has 50-120 mg of copper. Copper is an essential element in our bodies. Copper plays a crucial role in the creation of copper proteins as well as various enzymes. REDOX is also important in maintaining normal hematopoiesis. This helps to promote connective tissues formation, maintenance of central nervous system health and protect cells against the ultraoxygen anion damage. Because copper deficiency makes it difficult for the body to produce hemoglobin efficiently, symptoms are very similar to iron-deficiency.
A copper deficiency could also cause other issues, including reduced white blood cells and lightened hair, patches on the skin, immune disorders, abnormalities in bone, and others. Perhaps the most concerning concern is that, if there are lower levels of copper lysyloxidase (which contains copper) and collagen and/or elastin in blood vessels walls, this can cause them to become hardened and fragile, making them susceptible to damage ).
The therapeutic effects of copper on the cardiovascular system can be influenced by its use. Nano copper has been used as a medicine for years to supplement dietary therapy.
The Bacteriostatic Action of Copper
Some of the lesser-known benefits that copper has are listed below. Scientists have discovered that copper has the ability to eliminate infections. It and its alloys possess antibacterial and antiviral properties. It is believed that copper ions (charged particles), are released into the environment when microbes land or migrate to copper. They prevent cell respiration, puncture the bacterial cell membrane, and kill the viral shell. The continuous antibacterial activity of copper is maintained even through natural oxidation, repeated dry and wet wear. Copper is completely recyclable and safe for humans as well the environment. The use of copper ions in sterilization is common. There are some Nano-copper antibacterial products on the marketplace. A Chilean company also introduced N95 masks with Nano-copper in April.
The Nano Copper Application Prospect
Nanoscale copper particles, in addition to these applications, are widely used in high efficiency catalysts and microelectronics industries, metallurgy fields, high temperature ceramics manufacturing area, as well as high-efficiency catalytic converters. Nano copper’s characteristics, which include a large surface area, strong catalysis and high activity, will make it a popular choice in many other fields. Advanc3dmaterials (aka. Luoyang
