Description

The Copper Plasma and RBC test measures Copper levels in both the plasma and Red Blood Cells (RBC).  Copper is a naturally occurring element which is essential for good health.  The benefit of an RBC test is that it shows intracellular copper levels which can show a deficiency earlier than a regular Copper blood test.

Copper is important for skin elasticity, energy production, immunity, gland function, and reproductive health. The Copper RBC Test measures the amount of Copper in your red blood cells. As an intracellular measurement of this mineral, it is more reflective of your longer term Copper status.
