Natutal tablets to boost the correct levels of Copper.


Why is it important to provide your system with enough Copper when following a vegan diet?

Without Copper your body would not be able to perform at its usual level, for that reason this nutrient is so important.

In combination with iron, it is used for the production of red blood cells, and is also substantial for collagen, which damages bones, cartilage and skin.

If you are quite low in copper, you can develop anemia, hair problems, irritability, liver damage and loss of taste.

The good news is that it’s easy to find plenty of copper, even with a vegetarian diet.

The suggested daily dose (RDA) is 0.9 mg/day for older women and men.

Curiosities about strict veggie diet backgroud.

We have been taught by our family that  feeding our body with meat was healthy and necessary to our vital system, you are about to discover in this article that this is not accurate.


Back in the day this was not like that, only wealthy people were able to afford an everyday steak, so the 99 per cent of the population was naturally vegan most of the time. Actually my mum sometimes remembers how she was having just a piece of meat yearly. After the industrial revolution, the situation changed and meat started to be more available and cheaper, thanks to animal exploitation.


For those who do not agree, I have more to tell you, first humans were vegan, and used to eat just fruit and vegetables.


All these people many years ago were in good physical condition, even healthier than now, so that support the theory that a vegan diet is adequate to keep a person vigorous, and on top of that, is good for the body well-being.
