LACK OF MINERALS
Sulfur is the 3rd most abundant mineral element in the body, behind calsium and phosphorus. Sulfur is coverted by enzymes to sulfate which has many essential roles in coagulation, detoxification, and transport to name just a few.
Bioavailable copper is critical to mitochondrial dynamics as it is a cofactor for the synthesis of metabolic water, also known as matrix water.
Additionally, every facet of making iron functional relies on bioavailable copper that is expressed through 30+ Copper-dependent enzymes, like Cytochrome C Oxidase, Ceruloplasmin, SOD enzymes, etc.
Dysfunctional iron metabolism due to a lack of bioavailable copper is associated with the following:
- Decrease in metabolic water production causing mitochondrial dysfunction and a decrease in energy production
- Slowing down of the TCA Cycle causes Increasing levels of deuterium which leads to metabolic crowding
- Cancer metabolism
- Immune system dysfunction, both the innate and adaptive branches
- Heart disease, diabetes, arthritis and many other chronic diseases.
