About MesoCopper (Colloidal Copper)
Mesocopper 0.9999 pure copper in colloidal form.
Mesocopper is an all-natural mineral supplement in the form of a copper colloid consisting of nanometer particles of 0.9999 pure copper suspended in pure deionized water. Purest Colloids, Inc. is the exclusive worldwide producer of MesoCopper.
Copper is an essential trace element for humans and animals. Although Hippocrates is said to have recommended copper compounds as early as 400 B.C., scientists are still uncovering new information regarding the functions of copper in the human body.
Copper is an essential trace mineral that facilitates the activity of several enzymes. The mineral provides a role in the development and maintenance of the cardiovascular system, including the heart, arteries, and other blood vessels, the skeletal system, and the structure and function of the nervous system, including the brain.
Copper is a critical functional component of a number of essential enzymes, known as cuproenzymes. The copper-dependent enzyme, cytochrome c oxidase, plays a critical role in cellular energy production. Another cuproenzyme, lysyl oxidase, is required for the cross-linking of collagen and elastin, which are essential for the formation of strong and flexible connective tissue. The action of lysyl oxidase helps maintain the integrity of connective tissue in the heart and blood vessels and plays a role in bone formation.
A number of reactions essential to the normal function of the brain and nervous system are catalyzed by cuproenzymes.
Copper is involved in respiration and the synthesis of hemoglobin. It is essential in the production of collagen and the neurotransmitter noradrenaline. It is an important blood antioxidant and prevents the rancidity of polyunsaturated fats.
Copper is involved in numerous enzyme systems that break down or build up body tissues. It plays a role in the production of the skin pigment melanin by converting the amino acid tyrosine. The mineral is essential for the synthesis of phospholipids, which are a component of the myelin sheath that surrounds nerves.
Copper and iron work together in the development and maintenance of red blood cells and their protein hemoglobin.
Copper is tasteless – tastes like water.
Mesocopper contains 10 parts-per-million (ppm) of copper nanoparticles. Mesocopper tastes like water. By comparison, colloidal copper produced by other techniques contains a substantial amount of copper ions in addition to the copper nanoparticles. Ionic copper has a particularly nasty taste which some find so objectionable they cannot ingest the product.

Safety and Storage
Mesocopper is manufactured in an FDA registered facility, contains only pure water and pure copper, and is non-toxic. See the Safety Data Sheet (SDS).
- Our colloidal copper does not require refrigeration after opening.
- Our colloidal copper has never had adverse side effects reported.
Colloids made from non-noble metals such as copper have a limited shelf life, typically 4 to 6 months, once the bottle is opened. Air, which includes oxygen, enters the bottle when it is opened. The oxygen will cause the metal nanoparticles to slowly oxidize converting them into their ionic state. For this reason, it is best to purchase a bottle size of colloidal copper that you would expect to consume in 4 months or less.
Do Not Use Colloidal Copper Products If You Are Allergic to Copper!
Colloidal copper should probably not be taken by individuals with hemochromatosis because copper increases the body’s ability to absorb iron. Hemochromatosis, the most common form of iron overload disease, is an inherited disorder that causes the body to absorb and store too much iron. The extra iron builds up in organs and damages them. Without treatment, the disease can cause these organs to fail.
Allergic reactions to copper, while not unheard of, are uncommon. Someone having an allergic reaction to copper would not be able to handle a metallic copper object such as copper jewelry without causing an allergic reaction. Those who are uncertain if they are allergic to colloidal copper should apply a few drops to the back of the hand to see if an allergic reaction results.
The dosage for Mesocopper is typically one tablespoon (15mL) daily to help maintain health. Up to three tablespoons of colloidal copper per day may be taken to help fortify the immune system when needed. The actual dosage will vary based on individual needs. A 500 mL bottle of colloidal copper will provide one month’s supply when used at a dosage of one tablespoon per day.
Mesocopper is clear light greenish-yellow colored liquid. There is no noticeable turbidity (cloudiness).
