  • Psychological: the placebo effects explains the results, meaning that believers are more likely to obtain better outcomes.
  • Copper has the components that provide iron for the formation of hemoglobin and help form collagen for wound healing
  • Correcting copper deficiency can help optimize the body’s resistance to disease
  • Copper has a beneficial effect for reasons not understood at present. This would explain why some arthritis sufferers seem to obtain benefit from copper bracelets while others do not.

Conclusions are not unanimous and even though the myth of copper bracelet seem highly attractive, not everybody is convinced about its benefits. Even so, over thousands of years, many medical practitioners have used copper to treat a wide range of health problems. Their claims of success are not just anecdotal. However, the quality of much of the evidence does not meet modern standards, so more studies must be done to define and validate the effects, side effects, and mechanisms of the various copper compounds in various indications.
