Element #29 on the Periodic Table, Copper (Cu) is a red, lustrous
ductile, highly malleable metal. Copper has historically demonstrated
anti-parasitic tendencies, especially in the livestock industry as a
de-worming agent. Copper, in its pure trace elemental state, helps
improve inter-cellular communications and strengthens the cellular
membrane against microscopic parasite infestation. A diet deficient in
Copper causes premature graying of the hair, and low collagen in the
skin, which may result in wrinkling.
