Description
 

Both vitamins and minerals are well known to be beneficial for the body when ingested given that they play a key role in overall health and well-being. Vitamins are well known for their co-enzymatic properties, and are mostly ingested through the food that we eat.

Just as Vitamins are essential for human existence so are Minerals. Minerals play a key role in overall health and well-being. Unlike vitamins, not a single mineral can be synthesized within the human body. Without minerals, vitamins could not be assimilated and many enzymatic reactions could never take place without a mineral acting as a co-factor. Minerals may be found in water as well as in many natural foods. Minerals are constituents of bones, teeth, muscle, blood, soft tissue, and nerve cells

Minerals can be divided into two categories: major elements and micronutrients. The major elements typically consist of calcium, phosphorous, silicon, magnesium, sodium, potassium, chloride, and sulfur. The micronutrients consist of iron, copper, iodine, manganese, zinc, fluorine, cobalt, chromium, molybdenum, and selenium.

Copper has a key role as a cofactor in several oxidative enzymes, for this reason it is essential in the absorption and utilization of iron. For the skin, copper is helpful in oxidizing vitamin C and to strengthen the bond between collagen and elastin. This allows the skin to remain strong and supple. A lack of copper in the skin is detrimental, causing it to become fragile and brittle. By adding copper to the skin, the production of collagen and elastin can be enhanced allowing the skin to regain its natural strength.

Copper is also an essential cofactor for tyrosinase, the enzyme responsible in melanin’s biosynthetic pathway to catalyze the conversion of tyrosine to dihydroxyphenilalanine (L-Dopa) and to dopaquinone. Either directly from dopaquinone or through several different intermediate steps, melanin is formed. For this reason, adding copper to the skin can also help achieve a more even, faster and healthier tan.

Copper is as important to hair as it is to skin. It is key in the formation of disulfide cross-linkages in keratinization, which contribute to hair strength reducing breakage and promoting a healthy appearance.

FSS Bio-Chelate Copper consists of copper fermented with Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The fermentation process enhances the bioavailability of this mineral, and as a result copper can be more easily assimilated by the body enhancing its benefits to both skin and hair.

FSS Bio-Chelate Copper was designed to deeply nourish and condition the skin and hair to provide strong anti-aging benefits while promoting a healthier and more revitalized complexion.
