The Color Blue
It reduces stress, creating a sense of calmness, relaxation and order – we certainly feel a sense of calm if we lie on our backs and look into a bright blue cloudless sky. It slows the metabolism. The paler the blue the more freedom we feel.
In the meaning of colors, blue relates to one-to-one communication, especially communication using the voice – speaking the truth through verbal self-expression – it is the teacher, the public speaker.
The color blue is idealistic, enhancing self-expression and our ability to communicate our needs and wants. It inspires higher ideals. Blue’s wisdom comes from its higher level of intelligence, a spiritual perspective.
Blue is the color of the spirit, devotion and religious study. It enhances contemplation and prayer. On the other hand, blue’s devotion can be to any cause or concept it believes in, including devotion to family or work.

There are quite a number of ways copper can benefit you. The first of them is it provides energy to the brain and improves the functioning of the nervous system. It also helps in the production of red blood cells – it aids the process and boosts your immunity. It achieves this along with iron. Copper also contributes to the health of bones, nerves, and even promotes iron absorption.
Copper contributes to bone mineral density, and low levels of the mineral can lead to osteoporosis. It also plays a role in collagen health, which is an important structural component in our bodies. Insufficient copper can lead to depletion of collagen, and this eventually results in joint dysfunction.
The anti-inflammatory properties of copper can also ease arthritis pain.
Copper supports over 50 enzymatic reactions that take place in your body on a daily basis. This supports a healthy metabolism.
The mineral also plays a role in the synthesis of ATP, or adenosine triphosphate – which is the body’s source of energy. Which is why deficiency of copper can lead to a sluggish metabolism.
Copper peptides are also known to increase the size of the hair follicles and subsequently stop hair thinning. And since copper helps in the production of melanin, it can even prevent premature graying of hair.
These are just some of the MANY benefits of copper.
