Nano Zinc and Zinc + Copper

Nano Zinc and Nano Zinc + Copper are zinc supplements consisting of the smallest possible pure or elemental particles.

What is Nano Zinc and Nano Zinc + Copper?

Nano Zinc and Nano Zinc + Copper are zinc supplements consisting of the smallest possible pure or elemental particles (elemental means not bound to another substance) of zinc and zinc with copper. The particles are dissolved in purified and vitalised water.


The small zinc and copper particles are absorbed in the mouth within one minute and do not need to pass through the gastrointestinal system. Therefore, Nano Zinc and Nano Zinc + Copper have no adverse effect on intestinal flora and work faster than any other form of zinc. Moreover, you can also apply Nano Zinc and Nano Zinc + Copper externally because the skin completely absorbs the small particles. Nano Zinc and Nano Zinc + Copper are free of excipients and thus 100% pure.

Combined effects of zinc and copper

Zinc and copper have a number of combined effects: they fight bacteria and viruses, and maintain healthy skin and shiny, pigmented hair, strong nails, joints and bones, favourable cholesterol levels and good cognitive function.

In terms of uptake, they are each other’s antagonists. You might say they are rivals in the battle for absorption into the bloodstream. In fact, copper and zinc use the same receptors in the body for absorption. Zinc is required in quantities ten times greater than copper. Therefore, in combination with today’s lifestyle, zinc deficiency is more likely to occur than copper deficiency. Since copper then has no rival, a relative copper surplus may develop.

Therefore, in the case of a zinc deficiency with a relative copper surplus, start by taking Nano Zinc. After balance returns after 1-2 months, switch to the Nano Zinc with Copper. Because ten times as much zinc is needed, the Nano Zinc + Copper is formulated in that exact ratio of zinc to copper: 10:1. In theory, there can also be a copper deficiency with zinc excess, but this hardly ever occurs.


For a zinc deficiency, start with Nano Zinc, and after 1 to 2 months switch to the Nano Zinc + Copper.

Nano Zinc + Copper is used:

  • If zinc is used for more than 2 months, especially if people take supplements with zinc that do not include copper.
  • With frequent use of vitamin C in doses above 1500mg.
  • For strengthening connective tissue and bones.
  • For maintaining strong, shiny and pigmented hair and counteracting grey hair.


Why zinc is important to the body

Zinc has been officially recognised as an essential mineral since 1963. Our bodies contain about 2 to 4mg of it. Zinc, like magnesium, is essential for every cell in our body. A severe zinc deficiency does not occur easily. However, mild zinc deficiency occurs regularly and increases susceptibility to infectious diseases and weakens our immune system. The immune system depends on zinc to build and activate various white blood cells, including interferons (IFN).

Copper has been used since ancient times

In recent years, copper has emerged on the scene in the fight against germs. It is a metal whose germicidal properties – remarkably – were already known in ancient times. For example, an Egyptian text on a papyrus scroll, dating from between 2600 and 2200 BC, describes how copper can be used to disinfect wounds and sterilise water.

Greeks, Romans, Aztecs and other ancient civilisations were also aware of the antimicrobial properties of copper. They used it, ground into a powder, against skin conditions. Archaeological finds from Pompeii and Herculaneum also show that Italian physicians in the first century used instruments made of copper and bronze.

The effect of zinc

Interferons are natural proteins (glycoproteins) released into the cells of the immune system after contact with viruses, bacteria or fungi. They play an important role in immune system function. Therefore, a (mild) zinc deficiency contributes to chronic diseases, a weakened immune system and the development of cancer cells.

Zinc is also significantly involved in the production of energy, cell division and cell differentiation (a process in which cells become increasingly different in form and function). This is necessary for the growth, building, repair and (wound) healing of muscles and tissues. The growth and development of the (unborn) child and (young) adults also relies on the zinc status. In addition, zinc ions (like copper and silver ions) have direct antimicrobial and antiviral activity.

Zink is een co-enzym

Body cells depend on enzymes for their function: proteins needed to enable chemical reactions, also called catalysts. Enzymes, in turn, often depend on co-enzymes. Zinc, in ionic form, is a co-enzyme for more than 300 metalloenzymes (metal- or mineral-dependent enzymes). An example of an important zinc-dependent enzyme is delta-6-desaturase.


This enzyme is required for the synthesis (formation) and conversion of fatty acids, such as ALA to EPA and EPA to DHA. Fatty acids are essential for the stability and function of our cell membranes, hormone balance and regulation of inflammatory factors. (Other metals such as magnesium, iron and copper in ionic form are also co-enzymes for the relevant metalloenzymes).

Zinc is important for the eyes

Zinc promotes good eye condition, helps with dry eyes and combats macular degeneration. Zinc contributes to good vision by having an antioxidant function and contributing to the building and necessary breakdown of cells. It is also required for the proper functioning of DHA, the fatty acid important for proper eye function.

Zinc is one of the most important minerals for keeping DNA in good condition.

In a case of zinc deficiency, wrong instructions may be issued to build cells in the right way. This impairs renewal of tissues and their proper functioning. At best, the cell dies; at worst, the cell begins to divide uninhibitedly into a cancerous tumour. Low zinc status is associated with an increased risk of prostate, ovarian, lung, breast and gallbladder cancer.

Zinc in dyslipidaemia

Dyslipidaemia, an imbalance of blood fats including cholesterol and triglycerides, often appears to be zinc-related, where zinc supplementation may provide improvement. Zinc supplementation increases beneficial HDL cholesterol and lowers LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, which in high values are risk factors for cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome and diabetes. A copper deficiency can cause elevated cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

Zinc and Copper for nerves and regulation of neurotransmitters

Zinc is involved in nerve impulse transmission in the brain, the regulation of dopamine and serotonin and neuronal plasticity (the ability of brain tissue to repair and restructure itself). For optimal status of various neurotransmitters, such as GABA, dopamine and norepinephrine, the right balance of zinc and copper is crucial.

An animal study found that zinc protects against neurotoxicity from lead.

Copper is involved in the synthesis and metabolism of hormones and neurotransmitters.

Copper deficiency can lead to neuropathy.

Zinc in PMS symptoms

Studies show that women with PMS or PCOS have significantly lower zinc levels than women without these symptoms. Zinc supplementation at 2 times the normal daily dosage was found to be able to reduce PMS symptoms and increase quality of life compared with a placebo. PCOS-related symptoms such as dyslipidaemia (disturbed blood fats) and follicle growth disorders are often found to be zinc-related, where zinc supplementation may provide improvement.

Zinc and copper in digestion, leaky gut and other intestinal problems

Both zinc and copper help digest and release energy from fats, carbohydrates and proteins. In the process, copper activates the body’s natural energy.

Zinc also contributes to a healthy acid-base balance, which benefits intestinal flora.

Zinc is important for a healthy intestinal lining and the so-called “tight junctions”: proteins that determine which substances pass through the intestine or not. This greatly affects our overall wellbeing. An impaired intestinal barrier function attacks our immune system, weakening resistance. Toxic substances can enter the bloodstream and cause a variety of symptoms such as allergies, rheumatic diseases, skin complaints, headaches and fatigue.

Zinc also directly and indirectly inhibits inflammation of the gut that frequently occurs in disorders such as Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and .

Which form of zinc to use

Zinc in tablet form always enters the gut, where it can also feed pathogenic bacteria. Nano Zinc can strengthen the gut from the bloodstream while you can use agents like Nano Silver to kill off pathogenic bacteria. It is important in such a situation to keep Nano Zinc in the mouth for a long time before swallowing, whereas silver must be swallowed directly on an empty stomach to enter the intestine.

The action of copper in the body

Copper helps ensure that iron is captured in haemoglobin and thus plays a role in iron metabolism and oxygen transport in the body. Copper is involved in the synthesis of melanin, which causes pigmentation of skin and hair, thus counteracting ageing and loss of pigmentation.

The synthesis and crosslinking of collagen and elastin depend on copper, among other substances, and are important for the firmness and elasticity of skin and connective tissue. Copper thus contributes to youthful skin and healthy organs such as lungs, heart and blood vessels.

Both zinc and copper are also important for the growth and development of bones and tissues, new formation of blood vessels, and synthesis of hormones and neurotransmitters.

Optimal copper status promotes psychological and mental wellbeing and optimal energy supply to our body.

Bones and muscle contain as much as 50% of total copper.

As a cofactor of various co-enzymes and metalloproteins, the mineral is also important for antioxidant defence and the control of inflammation and allergies.

Copper deficiency in humans and animals

Although severe copper deficiency is not common in humans, mild copper deficiencies are not rare. In farm animals (animals kept for meat, milk, wool, etc.) however, copper deficiency is the leading deficiency worldwide.

The importance of copper to animals and humans has been known for nearly a century. The human body contains about 100mg of it, although measurements are scarce. Copper is found mainly in the brain, kidneys, liver and heart: about 3 to 5mcg/gr. Copper is a cofactor for cytochrome-c-oxidase, the enzyme in the last stage of the electron transport chain, the energy process in the mitochondria. This makes copper an essential element for our energy balance.
