Dr. Oz Talks About How Copper Can Help You Look Younger – Peptide Benefits Of Serums and Moisterizers
While there isn’t a magic bullet to stop aging there are ways in which you can look younger for longer. Today (March 17, 2014) Dr. Oz invited Dr. Jeannette Graf on to the show to talk about the anti-aging benefits of copper and how this mineral can give you younger looking skin, clear away blemishes and even give you a thicker and fuller head of hair.
Dr. Oz asked Jeannette Graf what makes copper so effective at slowing down the aging process. Dr. Graf said that copper builds and preserves collagen in your skin. Collagen breaks down over time and this is one of the biggest reason why we look older as we age. Collagens ability to preserve collagen and keep it from breaking down is what makes this mineral one of the best defenses of aging prematurely.
