New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with 6 Tell Tale Signs of a Copper Deficiency?
copper deficiency is a real thing okay I’m not trying to scare you it’s not my style but you do need to know the symptoms of a copper deficiency minerals are wacky and this day and age mineral deficiencies are so prevalent simply because the soil in which our food grows is depleted in minerals so different people with different genetic makeups end up developing deficiencies for different minerals right so for me I grow through magnesium like crazy so I need to take in a bunch of magnesium but I also know people that need to take a bunch of zinc I know people that deplete and potassium really fast but there’s also those that deplete their copper stores really quickly so you need to know the signs and symptoms so that you know when it’s time to increase the copper intake a little bit and by the way you can increase your copper intake simply by just adding a little bit of dark chocolate into the mix okay it’s really pretty easy to get copper you just got to make sure you’re getting it from the right sources now with copper the biggest difficulty I should say is that copper and zinc balance each other out okay so they’re antagonistic but at the same time they work together so if you take in too much zinc it blunts copper absorption if you take in too much copper it blunts zinc absorption so we have to be really really careful that we’re not just willy-nilly adding copper into the mix because we have one or two of these symptoms the symptoms that I’m going to lay out I highly recommend that you wait until you have three or four of these combined before you start supplementing additional copper hey do make sure you hit that red subscribe button then hit that little bell icon that way you know whenever I’m posting new videos and going live also check out Juve down below in the description after this video really cool stuff okay so Juve is a red light therapy company red light therapy is gaining a lot of momentum now because there’s a lot of clinical evidence backing it but basically what it is it’s a way for you to expose yourself to these red lights that trigger the mitochondria within our cells to activate different energy pathways because our cells are receptive to light it’s just like when we go outside our bodies know that it’s light out and it activates more energy producing products in the body so red light doesn’t same kind of thing so anyhow I just want you to check them out after you watch this video because it’s kind of along the same lines of things work talking about okay so with the body we have to look at minerals and just the food we consume like making a recipe right we always have our proteins our fats and our carbs but then we have different minerals that we add into the mix which are gonna be like the spices on a recipe and some spices will enhance other spices for example adding a little bit of something sweet usually enhances the salty taste of something and adding something spicy usually takes away from the sweetness right so we have different spices that cancel things out the same kind of thing happens inside our body it’s a delicate dance it’s an orchestra of different things so let’s talk about this for a little bit since copper and zinc balance each other out we’re gonna keep this in mind the first thing that I want to talk about in terms of a symptom is going to be intense fatigue particularly midday okay a little bit earlier in the day then you might otherwise feel it you know we all get the kind of three o’clock four o’clock little fatigues but we’re talking a little bit more around the the world of noontime right you see copper promotes iron utilization within the body most people think that they’re anemic when their iron levels are low just on a blood test that doesn’t necessarily mean anything but we have to pay attention to is iron that actually gets taken up by the cells now copper is required for iron to get utilized by the cells so if copper is low then iron isn’t getting absorbed so it can throw things off because then you go and you get your blood test done and your iron levels look high but you’re actually anemic because the iron levels are just elevated in the blood stream they’re not actually getting into the cells so it’s actually a copper issue that you have more so than iron in that rate now if we don’t have iron getting into the cells we’re not getting oxygen so then the red blood cells aren’t able to really do their job we’re not getting the oxygen we’re not actually getting energy now we also have to remember that coppers are required for energy production in the first place okay so we’re talking pretty intense fatigue we’re also saying like if you were to break into a sprint or start working out aggressively would you get winded really fast that’s a good indicator okay the next thing we have to talk about the next symptom cognitive decline okay so we have what’s called a copper-zinc homeostatic balance within our brain now maybe even gone so far in research worlds to say that there’s a metal hypothesis with Alzheimer’s and dementia okay so they’ve literally said even in research papers that one of the potential causes of cognitive decline with dementia and Alzheimer’s could be the fact that our metals are out of balance triggering this whole just trickle effect in our brain right so copper is responsible or something really important in the brain a process known as the glutamatergic process okay so we have gaba and we have the glutamate cycle now they’re both important the glutamate cycle is the main excitatory process within our brain and if we are low in copper then that side of the spectrum can’t get activated okay so we don’t end up having the sort of excitatory response our brain just isn’t lighting up so it’s not triggering a signal so if you’re feeling like you’re just high memories going I’m just getting Dumber like what’s going on it could be a sign of a copper deficiency right okay now another one we have to talk about is coordination are you losing coordination now this isn’t just a long-term thing this is gonna happen fairly abruptly like you’re noticing okay I’m fatigued I have cognitive decline and how come all of a sudden I don’t have coordination like even when I’m walking it’s like I can’t walk in a straight line or my hand-eye coordination is that away okay this is a common thing with a copper deficiency because copper supports the proper myelination of our nerve axons so what that means is we don’t have the sheath that covers the outside of a nerve so we’re not able to send the signal properly so when our brain is trying to say left foot move forward perhaps it’s telling the right foot to move forward I mean maybe not that extreme but the point is is it throws off our coordination so when you start getting all these things combined that’s when you know you’re having an issue the next one is you’re feeling cold a lot and you’re noticing that your metabolism is slowing down maybe you’re gaining weight see normally when we look at the thyroid we look at the big three we look at iodine selenium and zinc okay however we got to remember that wherever we focus on zinc we also have to focus on copper okay because we might have enough zinc but what if we have too much copper or what if we have you know too much zinc and not enough copper okay so that’s what we have to think about okay so we’re focusing on getting enough zinc to support our thyroid but in the process we’re inhibiting the absorption of copper so we have to increase our copper so it’s something to pay paying attention to you can become what is called functionally hypothyroid where you don’t realize that you have hypothyroid into that so you start noticing hey I’m getting cold all the time and my metabolisms slowing down it could very well be a thyroid issue basically your thyroid hormone isn’t able to attach to the receptors on cells because it doesn’t have the proper zinc copper homeostasis okay so it’s kind of a complex one but it’s still something that we have to add into the mix this next one is probably my favorite cuz it’s one of the tell-tale signs its paleness so poor complexion getting really pale but also a little bit more of a rapid graying okay so if you notice that your facial hair is starting to turn gray or maybe your head hair is just starting to turn gray a little bit rapidly in conjunction with just poor complexion it could be the case see copper is required by the rate limiting enzymes that ultimately work with melanin so what ultimately ends up happening is we have something known as tyrosinase and this tyrosinase is involved in that process so if we don’t have the copper to support the tyrosinase then we don’t end up able to refresh our skin really we don’t have the melanin coming through so we’re not getting that color so a lot of times we see the opposite like with zinc for example if you’re deficient in zinc you get red you get more flesh if you’re deficient in copper you get more pale yeah kind of working on that opposite spectrum there lastly is going to be neutropenia or just feeling ill all the time neutropenia is just a fancy word for basically a suppressed immune system again we don’t know this specific reason but we do know that zinc and copper are both involved in the production of stem cells at a rapid rate for fast recycling cells right so hair cells skin cells immune cells they all recycle at a really fast rate which means that they suck up a lot of our mineral activity well I think is required but copper is also required for that homeostasis right so if we’re out of whack there we’re not able to create the stem cells that create white blood cells so therefore we end up getting sick okay so you can see when we’re looking at fatigue we’re looking at coldness we’re looking at cognitive decline and lastly we’re looking at that coordination you can see like if you have three or four of these it’s a pretty telltale sign but if you have one or two and that’s not enough to justify loading up on a bunch of copper and jeopardizing your zinc absorption right so you have to be paying attention here so pay close attention to it because at the end of the day it’s all a delicate workers drought that creates the music of life so I’ll see you in the next video and thanks for watching

6 Tell Tale Signs of a Copper Deficiency – Thomas DeLauer
Cooper Deficiency, What is it? Is it a real thing? And do you have it? The answers are: Yes, yes, and maybe. Minerals are a tricky thing. Our bodies need a delicate balance of zinc and zipper, and too much zinc, or too little copper can throw us all out of whack. There are some very tell tale signs if you are copper deficient…
In regards, to the symptoms that I’m going to lay out in this video, I highly recommend that you wait until you have three or four of these combined before you start supplementing with additional copper. Enjoy and I’ll see you in the comments!
