Ep. 059 – Copper: The Vital Mineral You Never Hear About and You Are Likely Missing with Morley Robbins

Featured on: Sovereign Collective Podcast with Sascha Kalivoda

This is the first of 3 interviews Morley has with Sascha and the Sovereign Collective Podcast.

In this one he speaks about why bioavailable copper is so crucial and the lack of it is at the root of so many health issues. Today he goes through: 

  • the essential role copper plays in mitochondrial health
  • how the body has the natural ability to heal barring unresolved trauma or deficiencies
  • how neuropeptides (signalling molecules) ALL need to be activated via a copper enzyme
  • how the idea that one is iron anemic and copper toxic is the opposite of the truth in most cases
  • where copper is distributed in the body
  • what ceruloplasmin is, one of the largest proteins in your body you haven’t heard about
  • how Morley believes that copper is the crux of our self-healing
  • how it’s not copper that is toxic, but rather iron that can’t be regulated when copper is not bound in the proper protein
  • what healthy copper and ceruloplasmin levels should be and the ideal Cu/ceruloplasmin ratio
  • the enormous number of copper atoms in healthy mitochondria
  • how chronic and acute stress cause nutrient depletion
  • how my apparent past symptoms of zinc deficiency may actually be related to high iron
  • how low iron in the blood does not generally mean low iron in the body
  • how the level of storage form of vitamin D is not an indication of the level of active form of vitamin D
  • how low copper, leads to high iron, leads to low magnesium, leads to low storage vitamin D
  • as we age, copper goes down and iron goes up
  • how all symptoms of ageing relate to iron accumulation
  • how are symptoms are linked to impaired energy production and are labelled ‘disease’ but are not actually disease
  • the main things that are destroying your bioavailable copper
  • how Wilson’s disease has been resolved by the work of Svetlana Lutsenko
  • the animal-based nutrient necessary to take copper where it needs to go
  • how the work of Ancel Keyes began the decline of vitamin A in the American population
  • what drives the magnesium burn rate
  • copper requirements for people with black hair – clotting factors and copper
  • microcirculation and copper and more!
