Zinc is a biologically essential trace element and is the second most abundant trace element in the body. It is an essential component in the creation of DNA and protein throughout the body. It has been shown to play a role in immune function, wound healing, reproduction, growth and development, behavior and learning, taste and smell, blood clotting, thyroid hormone function, and insulin action. It is involved in over 300 enzymatic reactions in the body.

Zinc is necessary for the functioning of more than 300 different enzymes and plays a vital role in a large number of biological processes. Zinc is a cofactor for the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD) and is in a number of enzymatic reactions involved in carbohydrate and protein metabolism.
Its immune-enhancing activities include regulation of T lymphocytes, CD4 cells, natural killer cells, and interleukin-2. In addition, it has been claimed that zinc possesses antiviral activity. Zinc is necessary for the maturation of sperm and normal fetal development. It is involved in sensory perception (taste, smell, and vision) and controls the release of stored vitamin A from the liver. In the endocrine system, zinc has been shown to regulate insulin activity and promote the conversion thyroid hormones thyroxine to triiodothyronine. Helps prevent stunted growth, depressed immune function, hair loss, eye and skin issues, delayed wound healing, and changes in taste.
Copper is a trace mineral/element that is involved with the proper formation and growth of bones, collagen, and elastin which all play a critical role in the muscoluskeletal function of the body. Furthermore it is essential for proper hemoglobin function, and thus red blood cell health. Supplementing with zinc can reduce the amount of copper in the body, so pairing them in a formula together helps keep the body's mineral level balanced.
