KEY POINTS COPPER


WELCOME ALL TO MY CHANNEL!! TODAY’S TOPIC IN DIET CLASS IS COPPER.ITS
A TRACE MINERAL, BUT ITS VERY IMPORTANT AND IS KNOWN AS TWIN OF IRON BECAUSE ITS METABOLISM
OCCURS IN SAME WAY AS OF IRON, AND COPPER IS NEEDED TO ABSORB AND UTILISE IRON, FIRST
OF ALL,LET US KNOW ABOUT RECOMMENDED DAILY ALLOWANCE OF COPPER. ITS 900 MG PER DAY. NOW LET US KNOW ABOUT SOURCES OF COPPER–
THE RICHEST SOURCES ARE ORGAN MEAT SPECIALLY LIVER. AND BEST SOURCES ARE OYESTER, NUTS, LEGUMES,
POTATOES AND VEGETABLES. NOW LET US KNOW ABOUT COPPER DEFICIENCY. IT OCCURS IN THOSE PEOPLE WHO CONSUME ZINC
SUPPLEMENTS , WITHOUT INCREASING COPPER INTAKE, BECAUSE ZINC INTERFERES IN COPPER ABSORPTION. VITAMIN C SUPPLEMENT ALSO REDUCES COPPER METABOLISM,
AND INTERFERES IN ITS ABSORPTION. NEXT IS MENKE’S SYNDROME– WHICH IS INABILITY
TO TRANSFER COPPER WITHIN CELLS, DUE TO WHICH CERTAIN CHEMICAL REACTIONS FAIL TO OCCUR,
SPECIALLY IN HAIR–HAIR BECOMES KINKY, UNDERPIGMENTED AND IN THEM OCCURS LACK OF MITOCHONDRIA, NOW
LET US KNOW A WORD ABOUT COPPER TOXICITY, IN COMBINATION WITH ZINC, UPTO 3 MG PER DAY,
COPPER INTAKE IS CONSIDERED SAFE. PEOPLE WHO DRINK WATER FROM COPPER PIPES,
THEY SHOULD CONSULT THEIR DOCTORS BEFORE TAKING ANY SORT OF COPPER SUPPLEMENTS. IN THEM THERE ARE INCREASED CHANCES OF COPPER
TOXICITY. NOW LASTLY, LETS KNOW ABOUT WILSON’S DISEASE–
ITS A GENETIC DISORDER, ITS FATAL, UNLESS DETECTED AT EARLY STAGE. IN THIS, COPPER BEGINS TO ACCUMULATE IMMEDIATELY
AFTER BIRTH IN THE BODY, EXCESS OF COPPER ACCUMULATES IN LIVER, AND IN BRAIN, DUE TO
WHICH HEPATITIS, NEUROLOGICAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL SYMPTOMS APPEAR, ITS TREATMENT MAINLY CONSISTS
OF ADMINISTRATION OF ZINC, BECAUSE ZINC CAN BLOCK COPPER ABSORPTION. THAT’S ALL IN TODAY’S DIET CLASS. I HOPE YOU ALL LIKE THIS TOPIC, AND FOUND
