    well theyve obviously worked out specific co-factors. I geuss they want people to maximise benefits. the thing is i hate the ridiculous prices but it does actually work. and ive experimented with 'blue' forms of copper which are the dangerous ones and they cause me headaches and nose bleeds and all sorts of problems. and the copper from mitosynergy has only helped me. so there's definitely something worth looking into imo. the problem is after 6 months, my 1 gram of copper which would have lasted me for years, got too much moisture and so its turned to green/blue copper which is exactly the form you cant take. pretty annoying.

    Jarrow Formulas : Zinc Balance
    I found this with a 15:1, Zn:Cu ratio
    I had borderline low Zinc, but I was not supplementing when I had the blood test.

    Not to hijack this thread, but what can someone tell me about my Copper status. I find this simply confusing.

    High ceruloplasmin is ideal. Low free copper is ideal.

    Alright sorry to storm this thread, but I am super willing to trial out Copper.

    Whenever I use Zinc, I notice that I get extreme fatigue, clicking joints, LOW libido, MUSCLE tension in my jaws, and a few other bizzare neurological symptoms.

    Any idea how I could manipulate my results above? Would consuming Copper rich foods be Advantageous or problematic for me?

    I’m not sure. I feel good taking 2mg copper. I eat a lot of red meat, so high zinc. I feel bad taking zinc too. I don’t eat a lot of copper rich foods.

    I might start simply eating copper rich foods, and see how I feel. On the hunt for copper rich foods that aren't super high in iron!

    I really think shiitake mushrooms are your best bet :) 100g gives to almost 1mg of copper and only 0.4 mg iron. And lots of other good stuff (b5, selenium, trace stuff)

    Edit: wow, I just checked cronometer to see how much iron you would get to get the same amount (1mg) of copper from chocolate.. 6 mg!

    I've done the same thing as Douglas and created myself a copper deficiency by taking too much zinc. Now I'm taking 2mg a day copper bisglycinate and this is all starting to resolve.

    However I have low cortisol which seems upthread I've also caused by taking too much zinc. Will this resolve with the copper? I did ask the doctor he didn't know.

    I suggest you look into Rehmannia glutinosa. That will help you the most.

    Can we see a reference that Copper(I) is superior to “Blue Copper.” ?

    Or a reference that Copper(2) is dangerous?

    (A reference not by the manufacturer of MitoSynergy).

    I had the exact same skepticism about two years ago. bought the stuff. experimented. ive used blue copper a lot in the past and wouldn't touch the stuff again. I don't know about studies, just personal experience comparing the two is enough for me
