Hey there, fellas!

"Copper in nature = Copper 0 , stable form, e.g. nugget,pipe
Fully oxidized Copper you see on corroded pipes (blue) is Copper II "cupric copper" - copper for plants.Plants turn Copper II to Copper I.
Plant (bioavailable) human copper - Copper 1. It has a donatable electron.
Copper II does not have an electron to donate, it remains in the extracellular matrix and over time creating toxicity. Biggest sources: food supplements - copper II (same as from pipes, nuggets - toxic)
Copper is important for ATP cycling. Copper is critical for completion of ETC (electron transport chain) - Copper I. "

I know it's possible to be copper deficient & toxic at the same time. What in reality that means - having excess toxic copper and not enough bioavailable copper. This mineral is important for mitochondrial health & metabolism.

So I guess the final idea is to say, that we need get bioavailable copper daily for proper cellular respiration. And avoid the toxic copper forms as much as possible!

Cu II is fine.
What's the point of just saying is fine.. ? Could you provide then some evidence / research on why pipe (elemental) copper wouldn't be toxic? Why it then accumulates in the body, in the cells and creates toxic effects, hindering ATP production and mitochondrial capacity = (what the mitosynergy are claiming) ?

It was already discussed elsewhere on this forum, several times.

Oh, okay. I'll search for it. Or perhaps you could link those threads here, brother?

There are several copper related topics, and there were always discussions about supplemental forms, you have to wade through them to find parts that you find relevant.
