September is Pain Awareness Month. There are many different forms of pain and many ways to help get some relief. Whether you’re suffering from chronic pain or just short term, we have many products here at ACG that can help.
One great form of pain relief comes in the form of copper and products made with it. You may wonder why so many products with copper in them are recently popping up in the market. It’s actually nothing new. Copper has been used for medicinal purposes for hundreds of years. Sabona has done their research and used some of their findings to create some great products that are both helpful and effective. If you are sensitive to copper, the Sabona products are known to help with pain relief, inflammation, and are effective for proper circulation.
This is The Copper Theory from Sabona’s website:
Various forms of copper have been used for medicinal purposes throughout the history of mankind. The ancient Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Persian, Hindu and Aztec writings record various consistent medicinal uses of copper.1 Today, as more information becomes available, alternative health care and home remedies are gaining popularity. Health publications include copper bracelets as a home remedy to possibly ease the pain from arthritis in some people who seem to get an insufficient amount of copper from their food. Helmar Dollwet, Ph.D., of the University of Akron, has studied this copper connection and thinks the dissolved copper from a copper bracelet entering the body through the skin may be the only way for them to get the copper they need.2 Another study found patients wearing copper bracelets absorbed an average of 13 milligrams of copper during a month. “This could bring many people into the recommended daily intake for copper (1.5 to 3 milligrams). Copper absorbed through the skin gets into circulation very efficiently – more so than most dietary copper.” Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) is one of the body’s own copper-dependent enzymes that reduces pain and inflammation. The body may use copper to make more of its own SOD.3
