Copper Handmade Bracelets have been worn for pain relief for centuries. The benefits of wearing copper next to the skin are reputed to begin working within 2 or 3 weeks of wearing. Studies throughout the world have indicated that a copper deficiency may cause those rheumatic aches and pains. A copper bracelet worn next to the skin may rectify this imbalance and give relief to the whole body. As the present generation grows older, many people are looking for non-invasive methods to maintain their health and well being in order that they may continue to enjoy their lives.
The copper bracelet which for decades has been worn for arthritis relief remains popular today. Studies have shown that some people with arthritis seem to have difficulty metabolizing copper from the food they eat, leading to increased pain. Doctors theorize that arthritis sufferers may need to get their copper from another source. Physicians remain somewhat skeptical about handmade copper jewelry but don’t entirely dismiss them, either. It’s possible that a copper deficiency increases joint inflammation, and it doesn’t seem that supplementing copper in the diet has the same effect as wearing it. Although most people do not know the importance of copper intake in a daily diet, copper is one of the most essential nutrients needed in a body. Copper is of vital importance for many different reasons. Among these are its central roles in protecting us from cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, free radicals, and cancer. Copper is also vital for keeping our skin, blood vessels and connective tissue supple and elastic. While severe, chronic copper deficiency results in anemia, leukopenia, and skeletal demineralization.
Trace amounts of organic-bound copper have helped some individuals suffering from arthritis. Studies have shown that low tissue stores of copper cause pain and joint stiffness similar to that of arthritis. In the 1970s, there was a fad of wearing copper bracelets to stop arthritic pain. Although many people experienced reduced pain, they were shamed out of wearing them because this was so unscientific and only folklore. The pain disappearance was explained as being due to the “come and go” nature of the disease. In one study of patients wearing copper bracelets, it was found that people absorbed an average of 13 milligrams of copper during a month. This could bring many people into the recommended daily intake range for copper (1.5 to 3.0 milligrams). Copper absorbed through the skin gets into the circulation very efficiently – more so than dietary copper. Incidentally, the people absorbing the copper noticed significant improvement in their arthritic conditions as well as a reduction of pain. Many arthritis patients felt better wearing copper bracelets saying there was less pain while they wore the bracelets.
wholesale copper bracelets are considered to be an unproven remedy. While this home remedy is generally dismissed by the scientific community, the fact remains that we have received many compliments from those who believe that wearing our copper bracelets help them in some way. Perhaps the best information you can get is from someone who wears a copper bracelet. The next time you see one on someone’s wrist, ask them about it!
