Health benefits of copper

The ancient Greeks were the first to discover the sanitizing power of copper thousands of years ago. Since then, copper has been used as a biocide by Celts, Hindus, American pioneers, and Japanese, as well as by inhabitants of Africa and Asia, for treating sores and skin diseases.

Today, soluble copper compounds are used as bactericides in paints to render surfaces self-disinfecting, on ship hulls to decrease friction by reducing barnacle accumulation and microbial biofilm formation, in hospital water pumps to control Legionella in water distribution systems, and in agriculture as an algaecide, fungicide or molluscicide.

Copper has also been shown to inactivate a variety of enveloped and nonenveloped viruses, such as bacteriophages, bronchitis virus, poliovirus, herpes simplex virus and HIV-1.
