Certain minerals are considered sister ingredients - meaning they work best when combined. Zinc and copper are an example of this. We like to think of copper as the cool cucumber of the dynamic duo, which balances sister zinc out and allows the body to absorb each properly! Copper is an earth mineral but can also be found in certain foods. Chocolate is one of the tasty places where copper is found, as well as in whole grains, shellfish, and various nuts. Our THRIVE and NOURISH formulas contain the right balance of zinc and copper to allow you to get the benefits from both.
