Copper is involved in various critical processes, including the formation of red blood cells, maintenance of healthy bones and nerves, and the function of antioxidant enzymes (1,2). Both copper deficiency and excess can lead to serious health problems. Low copper levels can result in anaemia, nerve damage, and impaired immune function, while high copper levels may contribute to liver disease, neurological issues, and oxidative stress (1,2). Monitoring copper levels helps identify and address imbalances, promoting overall health and preventing associated disorders.
