The body of case studies and research on the benefits of copper supplementation is now extensive. Cu-Re Drops, used internally and topically, have proven effective in numerous cases, both as a preventive and therapeutic approach.

But what else can this essential trace element be used for in the body?

1. Wound Disinfection

The ancient Egyptians stabilized open fractures with copper plates or sprinkled copper filings into open wounds before bandaging. This practice wasn’t for religious purposes; they were simply aware that copper is a strong antiseptic. Thus, even the minimal amount of copper leaching from solid copper could elicit a strong disinfecting effect. Imagine, then, if we deliver it in a more concentrated and measurable amount to the area in question.

The use of Cu-Re Drops for wound disinfection:

  • Apply 2-3 drops (4-6mg) of Cu-Re Drops around the wound and spread evenly!
  • It’s not a problem if it gets directly into the wound… in fact, it’s beneficial!
  • It doesn’t leave stains and won’t discolor the skin after use.
  • It does sting… which means it’s working.

2. Houseplant Care

Industrial and agricultural forms of copper sulfate are often used as components in pesticides. Traditional farmers used to spray their vineyards with a simple solution of copper sulfate, which was one of the most effective and, not least, the safest solution for humans among the range of plant protection products.

With Cu-Re Drops, you can also protect your plants from harmful fungi and other infections:

  • Add 20-30 drops of Cu-Re Drops to a spray bottle suitable for spraying houseplants.
  • Dilute further with clean water according to how much leaf surface area you want to cover with the active ingredient.
  • Use the spray to distribute the solution evenly on the leaves of the plants, paying particular attention to areas that may already be infected.

3. Acute Poisoning Intervention

Concentrated solutions of copper sulfate are often used clinically as emetic agents. It can be useful to keep at home for acute situations, such as when a child drinks windshield washer fluid, or if you have a large breakfast of fine blue cheese which later turns out to be very old meat.

While poisoning in the lower digestive tract can be controlled with certain binding agents (activated charcoal, silicon, bentonite, etc.), in the stomach and small intestine area, an abrupt increase in copper can induce the body to perform a forced expulsion. The hepatocytes cannot physiologically utilize the sudden large amount of copper, so they try to excrete the unused amount through bile.

The presence of sympathetic tone due to toxicity and the absence of digestible lipids hinder bile drainage, causing the digestive system to expel its contents, including toxins, copper, cheese, and pretty much everything else, through the mouth.

This process is a known gastrointestinal phenomenon that has been used in hospitals since ancient times. Sadly, symptoms of nausea and queasiness are still interpreted by some as copper toxicity… and that too by so-called “experts”.

With Cu-Re Drops, you can easily intervene in a potential unfortunate poisoning incident:

  • Keep at home size “00” or “000” empty capsules which can be filled with Cu-Re Drops to deliver a sudden large dose of copper to the digestive system without having to confront the intense metallic taste.
  • The amounts to be administered depend largely on age, body weight, frequency of copper supplementation, and time since the last meal. Most often, 100 mg of elemental copper can achieve the desired effect. This is approximately equivalent to 3 filled “00” capsules (114 mg) or 2 filled “000” capsules (109.6 mg).

IMPORTANT! The success of the intervention can greatly depend on the toxic agent involved or the time elapsed since exposure. Always consult with your healthcare provider or pharmacist before any therapeutic intervention.

4. After shave

The disinfectant properties of copper can be applied not only to wounds acquired from accidents.

Micro-injuries from shaving can easily be treated with Cu-Re Drops solution:

  • Determine the amount of Cu-Re Drops depending on the size of the area to be treated. Usually, 10-15 drops should be sufficient, but if you have “thick skin” or “a big face,” you might need to use more.
  • Give it 1-2 minutes to exert its beneficial effects, which you will feel.
  • It is not necessary to rinse off, except when large quantities are used, which might tint the skin or leave a metallic smell. However, if you do experience this, you can rinse the area with warm water.
  • Afterward, apply a natural moisturizer (such as coconut oil, argan oil, or shea butter) to prevent dry skin.

5. Treatment for Cold Sores

Internal copper supplementation has been proven to increase the number of immune cells and their activity. Regular intake of copper can consciously reduce the likelihood of symptomatic manifestations of herpes viruses.

However, what might be a potentially new direction is that a water solution of copper sulfate (beyond its disinfectant effect) also operates as a strong drying mechanism. This property can be excellently utilized for treating both blistering and crusted cold sores on the lips.

On the one hand, it acts immediately and dries much more efficiently than any gel-like cream, thus potentially shortening the healing process by days.

Perhaps most importantly, it absorbs completely, making it invisible to the outside world. The significance of this will be fully appreciated only by those who had to go to kindergarten or school with a glaringly white toothpaste-like cream visible from miles away because there wasn’t a better solution at the time. But the solution is open to everyone now!

  • Apply 1-2 drops of Cu-Re Drops to the desired area and spread it with a cotton swab.
  • It’s even more effective if you lie down and allow the entire amount to absorb horizontally. It’s worth repeating this every evening until the cold sore is no longer visible. With some consistency and lifestyle guidelines, this can be 1-2 days.
  • For gentlemen, it’s worth remembering facial hair, which does not absorb the active ingredient, so by the end of the treatment, you could easily transform into a blue-bearded prince. This can also be easily resolved with a moistened cotton swab.

6. Wart removal

Copper sulfate solution’s strong drying effect can also be used for the removal of warts on the skin. Its desiccating and disinfecting properties can help to remove minor skin imperfections effectively and gently.

  • Apply 1-2 drops of Cu-Re Drops directly onto the wart and wait for it to be absorbed.
  • It is advisable not to spread the substance so that a concentrated amount remains on the wart.
  • By the next day, the treated area of skin will become dry and may turn a bluish color.
  • By the third day, a dry layer can painlessly be wiped off from the top of the wart.
  • Depending on the size of the wart, it may be necessary to repeat the process several times.

IMPORTANT: If you are unsure about the nature of the wart, always consult with a dermatologist before beginning any home treatment!

+1 Treating Fungal Skin Infections

Copper sulfate is a strong fungicidal component. Its antifungal mechanism of action has been exploited in agriculture in various ways. There is increasing practical experience that it can also offer effective assistance on skin affected by fungal infections.

  • Distribute the desired amount of Cu-Re Drops on the affected area (up to 40-60 drops may be needed).
  • Wait for the skin to absorb the solution.
  • Avoid washing the area for 4-6 hours if possible, and refrain from using creams.

IMPORTANT: Initially, the infection may appear brighter and more pronounced, and there may be an increase in itching. Both are signs that the copper is exerting its antiseptic effect, and the die-off of fungi in the affected area can also cause temporary discomfort.

In summary

Copper is an ancient and indispensable metal that plays an essential role in physiological processes, as well as in everyday life. The growing community of those who use copper consciously is employing more and more creative solutions, many of which we can turn to our advantage with various everyday methods.

You too can use Cu-Re Drops to take advantage of its numerous beneficial effects!
