Copper Underwear – The Best Underwear for Workouts

You could buy yourself the fanciest sports shoes and work-out gear to ensure your body receives the maximum benefit of your workout, but have you ever stopped to wonder how your undergarments affect your work out? Now, you will automatically think about wearing the right kind of sports bra while working out, but what about your underwear? Do you have a particular kind of underwear you use while working out, or it’s simply whatever you grab first on the way out? Just like your workout gear and shoes, your underwear also has potential implications on your body and your overall health.

Here are some reasons to help you understand why your choice of underwear is very important to your overall wellness:

  • Studies have shown that the most common cause for female yeast infections is due to the usage of underwear made from non-breathable fabric that tends to trap heat and moisture, thus providing the ideal environment for bacteria and fungi to grow.
  • Not changing your underwear for prolonged durations and wearing dirty/sweaty underwear also leads to the development of yeast and fungal infections. Other than this, not washing your underwear regularly allows bacteria and germs to thrive in the fabric, thereby impacting its quality.
  • Many-a-times fabrics used for underwear also require the use of certain chemicals or cleaning agents which can also disturb the vaginal environment, thus increasing the risk of allergies and infections.

Did you know? 

Three out of four women get a yeast infection in their lifetime, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Picking the right underwear can be tricky. You have to pick a natural material that can control moisture while being durable and ensure it has the right fit. While there are a variety of materials, shapes and styles to pick from, the deciding factor must always be the health implications of the kind of underwear you choose as well as the intended use.

For those of you who work-out regularly, the decision becomes even tougher. Apart from needing a natural, breathable fabric, it is also important to have a material that fits well but isn’t too tight at the same time. And while there are a number of options available in the market, each material has its pros and cons. For instance, silk is a soft and comfortable, completely natural fabric, but tends to retain the moisture, thus increasing your chances of contracting a yeast infection. Some people even advocate going commando, however going commando at the gym/while working out isn’t ideal. The gym is crawling with sweat and germs and going commando will only make you more vulnerable to such germs as well as the sweat you will generate yourself while working out.

Is there an effective solution to this problem?

Why, yes there is! Copper-infused briefs and underwear is the solution to all your problems. Copper-infused underwear combines the benefits of cotton and copper to provide a unique solution to all your underwear problems.

The Link between Copper and Skin Care

Have you heard about copper being the key element in supplementing the growth of blood vessels and muscle development? Copper is an essential nutrient for the body. Not only does copper help the body form collagen and elastin but also enables the absorption of other essential minerals in the body, like iron. This in turn enables the formation of healthy skin, while facilitating the growth of red blood cells, blood vessels and nerves.

Considering both collagen and elastin are major structural components of the human body, and copper promotes collagen production, copper has now become an essential ingredient in a variety of skin care products.According to an article by Daily Mail UK, copper is the new ‘wonder ingredient’, from eye creams and skin serums to face packs, copper is everywhere. And for a good reason!

Harley Street cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Sam Bunting says, “copper is vital for healthy skin and promoting collagen, a protein produced by cells to ‘hold’ the skin together that we make less of as we get older”. “Copper has important antioxidant properties,” she says, which is good because antioxidants are substances that prevent free radical cell damage.

While most people are out there advocating the use of copper-infused creams and lotions, they aren’t a very cost-effective option in the long run and require a lot of upkeep in terms of daily application, purchasing refills and availability and cost of said refills.Like every other skin care product, each cream and serum advocates repeated use to achieve the desired results.  This might work for some, but with the busy lives we lead; very few of us actually get around to using such creams and lotions regularly. Apart from regular use, cost is also a very big concern for many. Such creams and serums can be very pricey and aren’t affordable in the long-run.

So, for those of you looking for a simple, no-fuss solution to skin care, copper-infused bedsheet sets and copper-infused eye masks are the way to go! With the copper-infused fabric, you will be able to receive the benefits of copper while you sleep! But that’s not all, take a look at some of the benefits copper-infused bedsheets, pillow covers and eye masks have to offer:

1. Copper Promotes Angiogenesis

Copper helps promote the development of new blood vessels from pre-existing vessels, while rejuvenating the skin through the synthesis of collagen and elastin, otherwise known as angiogenesis. In fact, a study published in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science showed that people who slept on a copper-infused pillowcase for a month saw a significant reduction in facial wrinkles, fine lines and crow’s feet, as well as an improvement in the overall appearance of their skin. With copper bed sheets and copper eye masks, you will be able to promote the absorption of copper ions induce angiogenesis.

Did you know? 

Sleep masks allow your brain to sense complete darkness which increases the production of Melatonin – the chemical of sleep to increase the amount of rapid eye movement sleep for a deeper and more relaxing sleep. So, just imagine the wonders a copper-infused eye mask can do!

2. Complete Antimicrobial Protection

Since copper is known to kill bacteria upon contact (as per studies conducted by the EPA), the copper-infused bed sheets and copper eye masks will provide you with complete protection against germs, microbes and other antibodies you might otherwise find on your pillow covers and sheets. The copper mask will help protect your eyes and reduce the appearance of fine lines on your face, the copper pillow covers and copper sheets will help tackle the sweat and moisture produced in your bed while you sleep in addition to their biocidal effect of reducing the risk of fungal and bacterial infections.

Because copper bedsheet sets and copper eye masks require a highly specialized technology to infuse copper-ions into the fabric, these products are able to retain their anti-microbial and beauty benefits through the lifetime of the material and is able to retain its healing properties through multiple wash cycles. This not only makes it the simplest choice when considering the general upkeep that comes with other copper-infused products like creams, but also a very cost-effective one as one copper bed sheet set and copper eye mask will last for a long time! So, what are you waiting for? Get yourself a copper infused bedsheet set or simply try the copper eye mask and experience the difference!

Norovirus Prevention – Protect Yourself from This Winter Bug using Copper Clothing Products

Did you know that Norovirus the highly contagious viral infection, also known as the ‘winter vomiting bug’ is caught by 600,000 to one million people in the UK each year? Norovirus, which causes diarrhea and vomiting, is one of the most common stomach bugs in the UK. It’s also called the winter vomiting bug because it’s more common in winter, although you can catch it at any time of the year.  It can be acquired by coming into close contact with someone who has it, touching contaminated surfaces or eating contaminated food. In fact, norovirus is so contagious that an outbreak is capable of completely closing off hospital wards, in infected areas due to the sheer number of cases that occur!

But, it’s not just hospital wards that are being closed off! Other examples of public areas that are most impacted by such outbreaks include schools, day care centres, cafeterias, restaurants, cruise ships, retirement or nursing homes, hospitals and other healthcare settings, etc. Here is a recount of the most recent outbreaks:

  • According to a news report in BBC UK, “almost a quarter of the children from an Edinburgh school are absent following an outbreak of norovirus.” Reports state that more than 150 students of Corstorphine Primary School have been hit by the sickness bug.
  • Another massive outbreak as reported aboard one of the world’s largest cruise ships, Ovation of the Seas. As per reports published by Daily Mail UK, nearly 200 passengers are being treated for gastro as the liner docks in Hobart. Considering the cruise ship has a capacity of housing about 5800, the management had to take immediate action to contain the outbreak and avoid further contamination. The cruiser had to take an unscheduled halt to enable comprehensive sanitation of the ship, while the infected patrons were under the care of Tasmanian Health Services.

Such outbreaks become all the more common during the winter months, thus increasing the stress on hospitals and other healthcare institutions.

In fact, The Derby Telegraph recently reported the closing of a string of UK Hospital wards in the UK, the south east and Cambridgeshire areas as well as the West Midlands hospitals were the worst affected, following the outbreaks.

What Can Be Done to Prevent Norovirus Outbreaks

Such instances of major outbreaks not only cause nation-wide fear and panic, but also add to the stress faced by hospitals and other regulatory authorities in terms of threat of contamination as well as capability to treat those infected. While the NHS and other medical institutions are doing the best they can, we must seriously consider implementing other methods of preventative care to avoid such outbreaks in the future.

The Power of Copper

This brings us back to the power of copper and its ability to counter the spread of disease causing bacteria and germs. While copper’s ability to kill superbugs upon contact is already known of, various research institutions are looking for ways to incorporate this metal into their daily activities. When it comes to preventative healthcare, copper is receiving all this attention due to its powerful anti-microbial properties that make it ideal for keeping any microbial disease in check. This is especially true in healthcare settings where the risk of an outbreak increases because of close proximity between patients, visitors and staff.

 Lead author Sarah Warnes, from the Centre for Biological Sciences at the University of Southampton said, “The use of antimicrobial surfaces containing copper in clinical and community environments, such as cruise ships and care facilities, could help to reduce the spread of norovirus.”

Simply incorporating this metal in the hospital equipment and products, copper and copper alloys will be able to destroy various microbes upon touch. Thus, making it more effective than stainless steel or other surfaces where the virus can remain infectious and resistant to cleaning solutions! In addition to high-touch surfaces like doorknobs, bed rails and handles, copper infused clothing, bed linen, gowns, face masks, gloves and blankets can prevent norovirus from spreading.

While hospitals are still working on incorporating copper within their touch-surfaces, you can ensure that you and your family are well protected by enlisting the help of copper-infused clothes and accessories. Purchase a pair of copper-infused pyjamas or simply a pair of copper-infused gloves and socks to get started!

Your Gym is Crawling with Germs – Here’s How You Can Stay Safe

When you go to the gym, do you wash your hands before and after using the gym equipment? If you don’t, you need to start doing so right away! For a study conducted by FitRated, bacteria samples from 27 different pieces of gym equipment were collected to get a better understanding of the germs and bacteria we come in touch with when using the gym equipment. And it turns out the average gym equipment, like the treadmill, the exercise bike or the free weights are all laden with germs. Each piece of equipment had more than 1 million germs per square inch.

Gym Equipment and Germs

According to the report by FitRated, not only is your gym covered with germs and bacteria, but 70% of the bacteria samples found are potentially harmful to humans and are known to cause life threatening diseases like MRSA, Pneumonia and Septicemia.

In fact, the study also reported that, “All three types of equipment yielded gram-positive cocci (a common cause of skin infections and other illnesses); gram-negative rods (which can prompt many types of infections and sometimes resist antibiotics), and gram-positive rods (which can – but don’t often – cause various types of infections). The exercise bikes and free weight samples also turned up Bacillus – a potential cause of various conditions, including ear, eye and respiratory infections.” Here’s an infographic comparing the number of germs found on gym equipment to other daily used items to put things into perspective.

Gym Equipment and Skin Infections

Another article published by NY Times warns all gym goers to take all the necessary care and precaution when using the gym to avoid contracting highly infectious skin diseases. The article also draws its insights from a paper published by the National Athletic Trainers’ Association, known as N.A.T.A. about the prevention and treatment of skin diseases in athletes. In the paper, authors pointed out that, “Recreational athletes as well as participants in organized sports are prone to fungal, viral and bacterial skin infections. Sweat, abrasion and direct or indirect contact with the lesions and secretions of others combine to make every athlete’s skin vulnerable to a host of problems. While MRSA may be the most serious skin infection, athlete’s foot, jock itch, boils, impetigo, herpes simplex and ringworm, among others, are not exactly fun or attractive.”

Other Germ-Addled Areas at the Gym to Watch-out for:

Locker Rooms

Owing to the amount of sweat and humidity present in the locker rooms, it becomes the perfect setting for bacteria to breed and thrive, thus playing host to a number of diseases and illnesses just waiting to happen.

Exercise Mats

By simply striking a yoga pose, your body could come in contact with almost a million germs that can lead to skin infections, cold sores or even result in contracting the flu.

Gym Bags

Now that you know about the number of germs present at the gym, just take a moment to think about the number of germs your faithful old gym bag comes in contact with every time you place it somewhere, be it the locker room, the stands or even the gym bench.

Gym Towels & Bottles

If your gym is teaming with germs, just think about the number of germs on other products that are regularly used by other patrons at the gym such as the gym towels and the water bottles.

Now that you have a better idea of the presence of bacteria and other germs at the gym, as well as the potential implications of using such germ riddled equipment, it is about time you consider the methods of preventative care. While your best defense is to wash your hands before entering and leaving the gym, you must also consider other methods of preventative care.

  1. Go in for a shower as soon as you are back home to kill off any germs that you might have carried along when leaving the gym
  2. While you have to use the exercise equipment, try to minimize your usage of the other public items like water bottles, gym towels and gym mats.
  3. Try to look for other options of minimizing and reducing your contact with the germ-addled gym surface, like copper-infused clothing.

When on the subject of the spread of bacteria and how it can be prevented, it would be impossible to think about the potential health benefits of using copper infused products to combat the widespread reach of bacteria. According to a study published by the University of Southhampton, copper in its metal form as well as copper-infused fabric have the ability to kill germs and bacteria upon contact. In fact, it was observed that the copper nylon fabric was actually faster than on 100% copper metal. Following these discoveries, researchers and scientists alike are looking for ways to introduce copper touch surfaces in such environments to help reduce the spread of bacteria and germs. Think copper door-knobs and handles, copper railings and rods or even special copper-infused gym mats and copper infused compression gear for the gym! The possibilities are endless.

Copper-infused Products and the Gym

While copper touch surfaces will take a while, all you have to do to leverage the anti-bacterial properties of copper right away is simply use copper-infused compression wear while at the gym. So, instead of lifting weights bare handed, just put on a pair of copper-compression gloves while you are at it. If you are more of a yoga person, just remember to wear a pair of copper-infused gloves and socks to minimize the contact of your hands and feet with that dirty, old yoga mat. By simply incorporating copper infused products like copper compression gloves and socks into your gym bag, you will be able to significantly reduce the reach and impact of the diseases causing bacteria at your gym!

Copper Infused Bedsheets

Why Copper Infused Bedsheets are Great for Your Skin?

Do you actually take the time out to ensure your bed linen is regularly cleaned?

Did you know that the average person spends approximately a third of their life in bed? Consider this, if you sleep for 7 hours per night that would amount to 49 hours per week on average. That’s a lot of time spent in bed. Now think about the time and energy you spend ensuring your bed is well set and clean? Do you at all? Or do you simply make your bed every morning and retire into it when the night falls. Or do you simply brush it off thinking they aren’t that dirty yet?

What Happens When You Don’t Wash Your Sheets?

If you are a part of the population that does the later, you need to read what’s next! According to research, your typical bed sheets would contain traces of fungi, bacteria, animal dander, pollen, soil, lint and all sorts of excrements from the body including sweat, sputum, and excrement and skin cells.

Now, let’s say, on an average, every adult washes their sheets every 2-3 weeks (realistically speaking its probably more like 5-6 weeks). However, dermatologists strongly suggest that bed sheets should be washed probably on the average of once a week and pillowcases once every 2-3 days! Yes, you read that right! In fact, if your bed sheets are not washed regularly, whatever germs and bacteria you carry into bed with you every single day, stay there and accumulate in it until you wash your sheets again!

In an article published by DailyMailOnline, Paediatric Allergist, Dr. Adam Fox urges people to put more effort into cleaning their bed linen and take the necessary measures to reduce allergen exposure. He said, Our bodies shed millions of skin cells each day, many of which rub off in our sleep and are deposited in our beds. In addition to skin cells, our bodies also secrete fluids, sweat and oils during a long night’s sleep which pose a problem because they are all deliciously appealing for dust mites.” He added that while dust mites in themselves are quite harmless, the droppings of the microscopic creatures are laden with allergens which can cause health complications. When inhaled, these allergens can provoke asthma and rhinitis and may also worsen eczema.

Now, you must be thinking, “does this mean I now have to take more time out of my already packed schedule to do the sheets four times a month?” Then don’t worry. While it is understandable that our busy schedules keep us away from such tasks, there is a way to work around it – Copper Infused Bed Linen.

Simply leverage the antimicrobial power of copper and reap the benefits while you sleep! Here are the few benefits copper-infused bedsheets offer:

1. Round-the-Clock Antimicrobial Protection

According to findings from the research conducted by the EPA, copper was able to kill 99.9% of bacteria within two hours. Since copper is known to kill bacteria, viruses, and fungi upon contact, the copper-infused bed sheets will provide you with complete anti-microbial protection against germs, microbes and other pathogens you might otherwise find in your bed including Superbugs like MRSA.

2. Soft and Healthy Skin

Copper promotes angiogenesis, the development of new blood vessels from pre-existing vessels, in addition to rejuvenating the skin through supporting the synthesis of collagen and elastin. Copper-infused bed sheets will naturally nurture softer and healthier skin in addition to reducing the risk of fungal, viral and bacterial infections – perfect for those suffering from skin conditions like Eczema.

“Did You Know?”

Researchers have even tested this theory and it held up – according to a study published in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science, people who slept on a copper-infused pillowcase for a month saw a significant reduction in facial wrinkles and crow’s feet, as well as an improvement in the overall appearance of their skin.

3. Protection against Odour-causing Bacteria

Did you know that humans naturally produce 26 gallons of sweat in bed every year providing the ideal fungal culture medium when combined with high humidity? Copper bed sheets not only kill odour causing bacteria but also have moisture wicking properties, thereby reducing the amount of sweat generated when you sleep.

4. Protection from infected Bed Sores

Bed sores, otherwise known as pressure ulcers are formed on the parts of the body where the weight of the person’s body presses the skin against the firm surface of the bed. These are most commonly found on people who have been confined to the bed for long periods of time. They tend to worsen depending on the amount of contact the patient has with dirty infected sheets. A simple switch to copper sheets can help reduce the risk of pressure ulcers from becoming infected.

Stay Safe in Public Places with Copper Compression Gloves

Have you ever stopped to think about the sheer number of germs you come in contact with on a daily basis? Just think about your daily commute; the benches at the bus stop as well as the ones on the bus/trains, the coffee shop’s door handle that you push to get through or the elevator your ride to work. Germs are everywhere! Now think of the number of people that use these public facilities and where else they might have been as well as the number of germs they probably transferred on their way to work. Not just them, you too, would end up transferring germs from one place by simply going about your morning commute.

While it’s no secret that public transport and other public places are riddled with microbes and germs, the convenience and time-saving benefits of such services offered, tend to make such concerns secondary. While you cannot avoid using such facilities, you must sit down to analyse the germs that are all around and think of ways to avoid such contact. This is especially important because frequent contact with such microbes can affect your immunity in the long run.

Not just that, but also coming in contact with germs on a daily basis makes you more susceptible to a number of illnesses.

Take the London Underground for instance, through the interactive data, the London Underground is shown as the dirtiest form of transport. When exploring different tube lines in such grim detail, the presence of Staphylococcus Aureus (the bacteria responsible for toxic shock syndrome) E.coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Serratia were clear. The last two strains are resistant to antibiotics and known to cause serious blood, chest and urine infections.

Now, that you have a better picture of how easily you can catch an illness just by riding the tube to work, you should now sit down and really think about the number of germs you come into contact with and the methods of preventative care to protect yourself. Here are a few tips to get you started:

1. Vaccinate Yourself

Get yourself and your family members vaccinated to reduce the chances of contracting the flu.
Quick Tip – It is best to get the vaccine early in the flu season which usually runs from October that marks the beginning of winter. Also, note that it takes about two weeks for the full effect to kick in so schedule your vaccination accordingly.

2. Lead a Healthy Lifestyle

You can also lower your chances of getting sick by keeping your immune system strong by getting enough sleep, exercising and eating nutrient-rich foods.

3. Carry the Right Kind of Reinforcements

While most people use sanitisers to keep their hands clean after using a public space, sanitisers, unfortunately, don’t do much to eliminate germs and other bacteria. This chilling news is based on data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. During one of the studies conducted on the topic, researchers determined that preferential use of hand sanitisers over soap and water for routine hand hygiene might be associated with the increased risk of norovirus outbreaks.

So, what else can be used in the name of reinforcement against germs, bacteria and other microbes? Wearing Copper Compression Gloves, of course!

While you can take all the necessary precautions and preventative measures to keep yourself protected, copper compression gloves are a great way to ensure minimal contact with germ and microbe-infested surfaces.

Not only do the gloves minimise external contact and warmth, but the copper ions present in them also provide round the clock antimicrobial protection and kill odour producing microbes while on the job!

During extensive research and experimentation in his quest to find a powerful microbe resistant touch surface, Southampton scientist, Bill Keevil discovered copper-rich alloys have a powerful antimicrobial effect capable of blitzing both bacterial superbugs – like MRSA – and even some viruses.

So, as you can see, copper compression gloves are a surefire way of keeping yourself protected from germs while keeping you warm when on-the-go. Get your perfect fit at Copper Clothing now!

Take a look at some of the most commonly acquired ones below:

The Flu

Flu viruses can travel in the air via tiny droplets that get released when someone coughs, sneezes, or talks, making it the easiest to spread and catch.

The Common Cold

Similar to the flu, the common cold is also caused by viral strains that can be transferred by air. In fact, many of these viruses remain active on surfaces like armrests, tray tables and seat back pockets for several hours, increasing the chances of contracting them.


It is an infection caused by an extremely contagious virus that spreads through touch surfaces. Norovirus is typically characterised by nausea, diarrhoea, and abdominal pain.


Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus is a staph bacterium that is typically resistant to most antibiotic treatments but this superbug can be destroyed by Copper.

Make Living with Arthritis Easier using These 7 Easy Tips

Did you know that many people suffering from arthritis believe that their joint pains are highly indicative of rainy or cold weather? As you might already know, people suffering from Arthritis constantly suffer from pain in the joints, swelling, and stiffness and usually have a limited range of motion. This only worsens with temperature drops, making it all the more important for people suffering from Arthritis to find additional forms of preventative care during the winter months.

Here are some tips and strategies you can use to managing arthritis and soothe the pain:

  1. Dress AppropriatelyIf it’s cold outside, keep aching hands warm with gloves, socks and add extra layers of clothes or thermal wear to avoid the cold temperatures. It is important to wear lots of layers so you can keep your body temperature in check when the temperatures outside drop dramatically.
  1. Stay HydratedAccording to a study published by Experimental Physiology, even mild dehydration might make you more sensitive to pain. So be sure to keep yourself hydrated at all times!
  1. Keep Your Weight in CheckAn article in The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) highlighted the impact weight loss can bring about, especially in people suffering from knee and leg arthritis. So, try to fit in some form of exercise in your daily routine to stay active. Even if that means 15 minutes of walking, do it and supplement that with a healthy diet.
  1. Water TherapySwimming in a heated pool is both great exercise and helps sooth your joints. If you don’t have access to a public pool, you can also get relief from a warm bath or foot soak.
  1. Check Your Vitamin D LevelsLow levels of vitamin D are also known to increase sensitivity towards arthritis pain. Not just this, vitamin D deficiencies also raise the risk for osteoporosis. While vitamin D is naturally available in sunlight, you must also consult your physician about vitamin D rich foods and start incorporating them in your diet.
  1. Be More CarefulOnce the weather gets colder and snow starts to fall, you will need to be extra careful when going outside to protect your joints from further damage. If you are going outside, pick strong, supportive shoes and avoid walking on icy, slick surfaces to reduce stress on your knees and feet.
  1. Wear Compression Socks and GlovesAnyone and everyone suffering from arthritis would have been asked to wear some form of compression gear to help alleviate the pain. In fact, wearing compression socks, stocking and gloves not only help boost blood circulation but also help relieve stiffness and aching joints while keeping your feet and hands warm and dry. By using copper compression gear, you will be able to enhance these benefits by adding the power of copper ions in the mix. Copper has been used throughout history as an anti-inflammatory agent. While the light compression provides the much-needed pressure to your extremities, the copper ions provide long-term anti-microbial and odour protection, thus ensuring comfort even beyond the cold winter months.

If you are in need of copper compression wear, browse through our collections and pick the one that’s best suited to your needs. We have everything from long and short compression socks to regular and fingerless gloves!

Copper Compression Gloves Can Help You Fight Raynaud’s Syndrome

If you continuously suffer from cold and numb hands and feet in winter, you might have Raynaud’s Syndrome, also called Raynauds phenomenon or Raynaud’s disease.

It’s estimated that 1 in every 6 people in the U.K. suffer from Raynaud’s, out of which the majority are women in their 20s, 30s or 40s. The onset of winter, sudden weather fluctuations or even the slightest drop in temperature can trigger a bout. People with the condition don’t always realize they have it, or what they can do to prevent it.

Knowledge is power, so let’s look at the symptoms, preventive measures and treatments for Raynauds Syndrome.

Warning Signs of Raynaud’s Syndrome

Symptoms of Raynaud’s phenomenon are not very obvious, and are often mistaken for a normal reaction to cold weather. Cold fingers, as well as toes, ears, nose and nipples, are the most obvious symptoms. What makes these different with Raynaud’s is how severely exposure to cold affects you when it doesn’t really seem to be bothering anyone else.

Affected parts tend to get numb and discoloured due to lack of oxygenated blood. Blood vessels narrow with exposure to the cold, cutting off circulation and turning extremities white, then blue or purple, and finally red when the blood rushes back in. This can be extremely painful and tends to stay for a considerable amount of time.

Types of Raynaud’s Syndrome:

  • Primary Raynauds, an exaggerated reaction to the cold
  • Secondary Raynauds, caused by an underlying disease such as scleroderma, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, Sjogren’s syndrome, etc.

While a cure hasn’t been found yet, the following steps can help you prevent Raynauds flare-ups and reduce the chances of recurrence:

  • Wear warm gloves, socks or stockings, layer your clothing and carry a few spares to ensure that it doesn’t catch you off-guard.
  • Avoid cold drinks and high amount of caffeine especially when your system is already going through stress, sleep deprivation, infection, etc.
  • Change your clothes after working up a sweat. This is important as cold sweat can easily lead to an episode of Raynaud’s syndrome.

Copper Compression Gloves Stand Tough against Raynaud’s

Fingers are the most likely spot to be affected, since no matter how hard we try, our hands take the brunt of any physical activity. Choosing the right gloves plays a vital role in keeping this syndrome manageable. Gloves come in all shapes, sizes and materials, but copper compression gloves are the most effective solution.

Here’s why they’re perfect for fighting the symptoms of Raynaud’s Syndrome:

  • Copper gloves with graduated compression boost blood supply, oxygen circulation and thermal regulation, keeping your hands warm and safe.
  • Because of copper’s anti-microbial characteristics, the gloves remain odourless and sweat-free. They don’t need washing for quite a while!
  • Copper retain moisture and helps with the rejuvenation and healing of skin, keeping it vibrant and fresh by fighting dryness and itchiness.
  • In addition to the restorative properties of copper, these gloves are durable, comfortable and breathable, and available in numerous sizes.
  • Copper infused clothing contains no chemicals and is environmentally friendly, making it the safest natural antimicrobial for your health and hygiene.

Could Copper Help You with Norovirus Prevention this Winter?

Norovirus is the second most contagious viral strain after the common cold, and outbreaks of norovirus are common in winter because of its highly infectious nature. Typically, norovirus spreads most quickly in areas where there are crowds of people in close quarters, and shared eating, dining or food preparation areas.

Common examples include schools, day care centers, cafeterias, restaurants, cruise ships, retirement or nursing homes, hospitals and other healthcare settings, etc.

Norovirus Symptoms and How It Spreads

Norovirus is commonly known as the “winter vomiting bug”, because of higher chances of occurrence during winter as well as symptoms resembling stomach flu and other seasonal diseases.

Norovirus symptoms usually last for around 2-3 days, and include:

  • Diarrhoea, Nausea and Vomiting – A sick feeling accompanied by projectile vomiting and watery diarrhoea could be a norovirus infection.
  • Other Flu-Like Symptoms – Other than vomiting and diarrhea, you may have a slight fever, headaches, abdominal pain and aching limbs.

Here’s how outbreaks of norovirus can occur:

  1. spreads from person to person very easily, and due to its highly infectious nature, it can infect a large number of people at an alarming rate.
  2. True to its viral nature, norovirus can remain dormant even after symptoms are treated. In some infected people, symptoms might not even show up at all.
  3. Norovirus can be passed on if a sick person’s saliva or faecal matter enters a healthy person’s mouth, which is why washing your hands properly is crucial.
  4. Foodborne norovirus is often blamed on food workers, but you can get it even by being in close proximity to a sick person and catNorovirus ching it from their breath.
  5. It spreads in public places through contact with an infected surface, contaminated waters or food materials, and a lack of proper hygiene practices.

How Is Norovirus Infection Treated?

There isn’t really any effective norovirus treatment that can cure the symptoms completely, and going to a hospital would only multiply the chances of infecting others. Paracetamol helps with aches and pains. Other than that, stay hydrated and let the “stomach bug” run its course, while taking a lot of rest and eating plain and semi-liquid food.

Prevention is the most effective form of norovirus control, so:

  • Avoid contact with infected people or contaminated food.
  • Clean and disinfect high-contact surfaces.
  • Wash fruits and vegetables thoroughly.
  • Clean your hands with soap and water regularly.
  • Follow a strict hygiene and food safety routine.

Copper infused clothing can also help you reduce the risk, especially while visiting or caring for a sick person.

The Link between Copper and Norovirus Prevention

Lead author Sarah Warnes, from the Centre for Biological Sciences at the University of Southampton said, “The use of antimicrobial surfaces containing copper in clinical and community environments, such as cruise ships and care facilities, could help to reduce the spread of norovirus.”

  • Copper has powerful anti-microbial properties that can help with norovirus control. It’s also affordable, non-drug, non-chemical, non-invasive, environmentally friendly, durable and odour-resistant.
  • These properties combine to make it ideal for keeping any microbial disease in check, especially in healthcare settings where the risk of an outbreak increases because of close proximity between patients, visitors and staff.
  • Copper and copper alloys destroy various microbes on touch, making it more effective than stainless steel or other surfaces where the virus can remain infectious and resistant to cleaning solutions.
  • In addition to high-touch surfaces such as doorknobs, surfaces, handles and bars, side rails, etc., copper infused clothing, bed linen, gowns, face masks, gloves and blankets can prevent norovirus from spreading.

If you want to protect your body against norovirus infection, antimicrobial copper pyjamas, socks and other garments are your first line of defence. Check out the full range at Copper Clothing today!

Copper’s Anti-Microbial Powers Can Help in the Battle Against E. Coli Outbreaks

Escherichia coli or E. coli is one of the most common food-borne bacteria found in hotels, restaurants and households, as well as hospitals and other healthcare environments. While many strains of this bacteria don’t cause any harm, others such as O157:H7 and 0104:H4 are pathogenic and potentially deadly.

Good hygiene practices are essential for keeping this bacteria and other pathogens away from food and contact surfaces. However, there is still a high risk of cross-contamination and infection in areas where food is produced or handled. According to studies, the answer to fighting E. coli outbreaks may lie in a common metal: copper.

How Does An Outbreak of E. Coli Take Place?

Like MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus) and VRE (Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococcus faecalis), E. coli is often considered a super-bacteria. It can survive in extreme conditions and is easily transferred to food items from contaminated surfaces, raw food and even dirty hands or utensils, causing mild to severe food poisoning.

The risk of a bacterial outbreak is particularly high in households, restaurants and hotels, where contaminated food items may be handled or consumed by multiple people. Other than affecting the health and safety of people residing, working or eating meals there, it can also cause significant financial damage for commercial dining establishments.

What is the Effect of Copper on Pathogenic Bacteria?

Copper has powerful anti-microbial properties, which makes it a quick and effective natural disinfectant. According to various studies, contact with copper (or copper alloys such as bronze and brass) kills over 99.9% of bacteria, including resistant strains such as MRSA, VRE and pathogenic E. coli.

Here’s how effective copper is against E. coli bacteria:

  • Upon contact with a dry copper surface, 10 million E. coli are killed within 10 minutes
  • Upon contact with a wet copper surface, E. coli are completely eliminated in 45 minutes

As a result of these findings, copper contact surfaces and clothing are becoming a popular option for killing/preventing bacterial outbreaks in healthcare and food preparation industries.

What Are High-Contact Surfaces and How Does Copper Help?

The risk of bacterial infection increases with “high-touch” surfaces, i.e. surfaces which may be exposed to contaminated food, medical equipment, skin, etc.

Some examples of high-contact surfaces in different industries include:

  • Faucet handles
  • Countertops and sinks
  • Door handles
  • Cabinet pulls
  • Chopping boards
  • Butchers’ blocks
  • Drinking fountains
  • Toilet flush levers
  • Hospital/restaurant furniture
  • Blankets and bed linen
  • IV poles, call buttons, etc.
  • Gym equipment

… and more

Today, copper is extensively used in a wide range of high-contact surfaces, to improve hygiene and infection control. Other than antimicrobial copper surfaces, copper-infused blankets, bedsheets and clothing are becoming common in hospitals. That’s not all, though. These items are also making their way into health-conscious homes and restaurants.

The Copper Revolution is Actually a Comeback

While modern science is still catching up to the huge benefits that copper offers, history tells us that this is nothing new. Our ancestors treated copper as a precious metal, and they may already have known what we’re just finding out.

Copper was used to sterilize wounds, purify water for drinking and even treat burns or infections by the Ancient Egyptians. It’s also a common feature in Ayurveda, a form of alternative medicine that dates back thousands of years.

Thanks to modern technology, though, we’ve managed to harness copper in a wider range of forms than ever before. These days, copper components can be found in everything from furniture to food containers, as well as textiles, paints, resins and more.

Thus, making them a practical everyday solution for all your foot problems

Why You Need Copper Compression Socks This Winter

Foot problems become a common complaint for everyone during the winter months. Along with dryness, vasoconstriction is often to blame. This is where blood vessels contract and reduce blood flow to muscles in response to low temperatures, so blood can be sent to more essential organs and keep them warm.

Some examples of winter foot problems include:

  • Dry Skin – Severe dryness can cause foot health issues such as heel fissures (cracked heels), calluses, itching and more. Scrub and moisturize your feet regularly to keep these problems away.
  • Athlete’s Foot – Skin infections are not only a summer problem. Multiple layers of cotton or wool socks collect sweat and prevent feet from breathing, creating the perfect setting for fungal and bacterial growth.
  • Foot Aches – Pain in the feet and legs happens because of poor circulation, heel fissures, arthritis, injury, blisters, and more. Severe or persistent aches, bruising and swelling could signal a fracture as well.
  • Frostbite – Blood flow stops when skin is exposed to freezing temperatures for too long, leading to tissue damage. People with diabetes, peripheral arterial disease and circulation problems face a greater risk.
  • Chilblains – These small red bumps typically show up on toes and hardened skin when the weather turns cold and damp. These lesions are itchy and painful, but usually go away in 1-2 weeks.

Most of these problems can be prevented by keeping your feet and legs warm, avoiding exposure to extreme temperatures, and following a regular foot care routine. Get proper treatment for injuries and wounds to prevent secondary infections, especially if you have low immunity or conditions like diabetes.

Are Copper Compression Socks the Right Solution?

Here’s why copper compression socks are the best solution for your feet during winter:

  • Compression socks enhance circulation in your lower legs and feet, which helps to reduce the symptoms of Raynaud’s Disease and other conditions. They also keep your feet warm by preventing heat loss and regulating body temperature.
  • Copper is a powerful antimicrobial, so copper compression socks help you fight fungal and bacterial skin infections. They also prevent foul odors caused by sweat and bacterial growth, and wearing them all day won’t lead to embarrassing smelly feet.
  • The mineral also boosts skin health through the synthesis of collagen and elastin, and promotes angiogenesis, the development of blood vessels. Wearing copper infused socks after moisturizing your feet helps your feet and legs feel soft.

Copper compression socks offer many more benefits, such as reducing the effects of hot flashes and easing the symptoms of diabetic foot problems. They’re the perfect winter gift for yourself as well as the people you love. Get your miracle copper socks from Copper Clothing today!

How Can Copper Pyjamas Protect You from MRSA and Skin Infections?

Whether you prefer cotton PJs or lace negligees, how much do you understand about the impact of your nightwear on health and safety?

For instance, are you washing them often enough to prevent infections? Most people only wash their nightwear every fortnight. Men wash their pyjamas after wearing them for 13 days, and women generally wait 17 days before washing theirs.

Why is this so dangerous? Well, we shed skin cells which contain a wide range of microbes. These may not pose a risk to our gut or skin, but can cause infections if they get transferred to other areas of our body from dirty clothing.

  • E. coli is a common gut bacteria found in our bowels. It’s generally harmless, but can cause cystitis and other infections if it gets into the urinary tract.
  • Our skin may also carry staphylococcus bacteria, which can lead to staph infections if it enters open wounds, bruises or areas where skin is damaged.

Anyone sharing your bed or washing their clothes with yours is also at risk of contracting an infection. The threat is even greater if you carry MRSA, since this microbe is highly resistant to most antibiotics.

Can Copper-Infused Clothing Help Prevent These Infections?

Copper clothing is comfortable enough to wear all day at home, and ideal for protecting against infections when you’re hospitalized or at a care facility too.

Here are some of the main features and benefits to consider:

  • Kills Microbes – Copper has incredible anti-microbial properties, killing infection-causing germs naturally. It’s extremely effective at eliminating bacteria, viruses and fungi upon contact, protecting you from potential threats.
  • Anti-MRSA Clinical studies show that copper can even kill antibiotic-resistant strains like MRSA. Copper-infused fabric is often used in hospital clothing, bed linen and other applications where the risk of bacterial contamination is high.
  • Soft & Comfortable – Copper-infused clothing is designed with bamboo, a breathable textile that’s super-soft and comfortable against the skin. Copper ions are bonded to fabric on a molecular level, delivering benefits straight to the skin.
  • Relieves Dryness – Copper helps restore skin’s moisture, reducing itchiness and irritation for those who suffer from eczema and other conditions. Wearing copper clothes can also make your skin more supple, flexible and youthful.
  • Improves Circulation – For those who suffer from cold feet or hands, varicose/spider veins and other problems associated with poor blood circulation in the extremities, copper-infused nightwear is the perfect solution.
  • Anti-Odour – Since copper inhibits the growth of microbes and bamboo wicks away excess moisture from the skin, copper pyjamas prevent body odour as well. Copper clothing also stays fresh for longer so you don’t have to wash it so often.

Copper Clothing’s range of pyjamas, shorts and other clothing is made from pure, chemical-free copper, which will last the lifetime of the product. These items are also machine washable and designed to be extremely durable.

Copper Underwear for Men – How Can They Help You?

Unless you’re a fan of going commando, choosing the right underwear that keeps your “boys” cool and comfortable is probably an important consideration. Whether you prefer boxers, briefs, Y-fronts or – and we’re not judging here – thongs, you probably have a favorite style that you stick to most of the time.

But, is your underwear actually good for you or is it raising the risk of infections and other problems “down there”? The answer to this mostly depends on the style and fabric, as well as how you care for them. The wrong undergarments can increase the risk of health issues such as excessive sweat, foul odours, bacterial or fungal infections, rashes and irritation.

Underwear for Men: How Fabric and Style Makes a Difference

Underwear material can mean all the difference between feeling cool, dry and comfortable, or hot, sweaty and itchy. The wrong fabric can also raise the risk of jock itch, rashes and certain urinary tract infections. Ideally, cotton and other soft, breathable fabrics should be the materials of choice.

However, you also need to choose the right style of underwear. Loose-fitting boxers are generally more comfortable and better for genital health, but if you prefer wearing briefs, just make sure they’re not too tight and feature breathable materials. Here are some other facts to consider:

  • Sleeping in briefs or boxers can make your genitals too warm, compromising sperm quality and raising the risk of infection.
  • Your genital region needs to remain cool for optimal fertility, since temperature affects sperm production and motility.
  • Bacterial build-up can raise the risk of chafing, itching or irritation, which leads to a higher likelihood of infection.

How Do Copper-Infused Fabrics Help to Prevent these Issues?

  • Pure & Natural – Copper is an environmentally-friendly, chemical-Copper underwear for men is created with copper-infused fabrics, and key benefits include:
    and drug-free, non-invasive solution for healthier living. Unlike other antibacterial clothing, it’s safe for wearing against skin even for extended periods of time.
  • Durable & Lasting – Since copper ions are bonded to the fabric on a molecular level, copper-infused clothing is machine-washable and extremely durable. The copper will last the lifetime of the product.
  • Moisture Control – Copper clothing is created with soft, breathable and natural materials that wick away extra moisture to keep you fresh, dry and comfortable all day. This also ensures better hygiene and prevents foul odours too.
  • Thermal Regulation – Maintaining the right temperature in the genitals is an essential aspect of optimizing sperm production. Copper has excellent thermal regulation properties, making it the right choice for men’s undergarments.
  • Anti-Microbial – Along with fighting infection-causing bacteria, viruses and fungi, copper is extremely effective at preventing the build-up of heat and moisture in your nether regions. This discourages microbe growth and prevents chafing or irritation too.

Copper Clothing offers a wide range of copper-infused boxers and underwear for everyday use, sports and workouts, sensitive skin, and more. Check out our full range to find your perfect fit today!

How Copper-Infused Products Solve the 5 Health Pain Points of Frequent Travellers

Travelling for work or leisure can be exciting, but frequent travel has its own pain points for people who are always on the move. Some health concerns are particularly common among frequent travellers who have limited movement through long flights or spend hours sitting or standing in airports.

Copper-infused Clothing and accessories are a great way to prevent health problems caused by frequent travel. Here’s how they can help:

1. Pain Point: Long Queues and Heavy Luggage

Long lines at check-in, security, boarding and customs are a common complaint among frequent travellers, especially when flights are delayed with no warning. Standing in one place with no space to stretch your legs can be frustrating, but also painful for your feet, legs, hips and back.

Carrying heavy baggage makes the pain and fatigue worse, so pack as light as possible. Wear copper compression socks to reduce stress, joint pain and leg cramps too.

2. Pain Point: Risk of DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis)

DVT is a silent killer, with symptoms that may be mistaken for fatigue or jet lag, such as achy calves and shallow or laboured breathing. It starts with blood clots in the leg that can travel upward into the lungs and block a lung artery. Known as a pulmonary embolism, this can kill you in seconds, without any warning!

DVT can occur due to surgery, obesity, smoking, medication, dehydration, genetic blood coagulation disorders, etc. Long-haul travel where you’re immobilised for a long time also puts you at risk. Copper compression socks improve your circulation and reduce the risk of DVT during long flights, car trips, train journeys and bus rides.

3. Pain Point: Swelling, Oedema and Dryness

Along with a higher likelihood of DVT, long-haul travel can increase the risk of oedema, swollen feet or calves, leg cramps, cold hands/feet, and other issues. Since copper compression socks maintain proper circulation and thermal insulation in your lower legs, they can help prevent these problems.

Dry cabin air also dehydrates your skin, so use copper-embedded sleep masks, clothing and moisturizers to help it recover.

4. Pain Point: Germs and Infections

No matter how careful airlines are about cleanliness, there’s no way to guarantee that your seat, armrest and toilets aren’t swarming with germs. Since you’re in an enclosed space, the chance of being exposed to infectious bacteria, fungi and viruses is also high. Copper-infused clothing has powerful anti-microbial properties that can keep you protected, as well as avoid body odour or smelly feet during a long flight.

5. Pain Point: Flight Fatigue and Jet Lag

A long-haul flight can leave you worn out, both physically and mentally. Keep yourself hydrated, try to sleep according to the local time at your destination. Move around and elevate your feet if possible, and wear graduated compression socks that keep the blood flow going in your lower limbs if you’re immobilized for extended periods of time.

If you’re a frequent traveller, copper can be your best friend. Check out Copper Defence to explore our full range of copper-infused products now!

Top 5 Reasons to Wear Copper Compression Socks

Compression socks are available in a wide range of materials, lengths and designs. They are designed to provide different degrees of pressure along their length, with maximum compression toward the bottom, which decreases higher up your leg. This graduated compression helps improve blood flow and ensures that circulation isn’t cut off.

Here are 5 situations in which you should wear copper-infused compression socks:

    • Treating Foot Problems Copper compression socks are often used for treating foot-related problems, especially for people with poor circulation, inflammatory conditions such as arthritis and slow-healing wounds caused by diabetes, etc.
      Since they improve blood flow, boost skin health and fight infection-causing microbes, copper compression socks can prevent a wide range of health issues in feet, ankles, lower legs and leg veins. They can also help maintain good circulation when you’re recovering from a surgery.

    • While Running – Poorly fitting socks are a bad idea when you’re running, since they can cause chafing or poor circulation in your legs. It can take time for your feet and legs to recover from the strain of running unless you’re wearing the right gear.
      Copper compression socks improve blood flow and reduce the build-up of lactic acid in your leg muscles, which speeds up their recovery and ensures better performance. Since copper is anti-microbial, these socks help prevent odours as well as Athlete’s Foot and other infections.

    • While Stretching – If you do yoga, Crossfit or other exercise routines that involve a lot of stretching and pulling, copper compression socks can help you prevent cramps and strain in your legs.
      Unlike the constant strain caused by running, these exercises place abrupt pressure on your muscles. Copper compression socks provide similar benefits for both extended strain and sudden stretches or pulls, by preventing odour, keeping blood circulation at optimum levels and helping your legs recover faster.

    • During Pregnancy – Pregnant women often face leg cramps, swollen ankles or feet, as well as other leg-related issues such as varicose veins and Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT).
      During the third trimester, hormonal changes in your body can also lead to increased blood volume, coagulation and clotting. All these problems can be prevented by improving circulation in your legs. By wearing copper compression socks, you can keep your legs healthy throughout your pregnancy.

  •  While Flying – Air travel can play havoc with your legs. You don’t get much exercise while standing in line or walking around the airport, and spending anywhere from a few hours to almost a day sitting in the plane.
    Extended periods of sitting and standing can cause numerous problems, especially for elderly fliers and people with poor circulation, oedema or leg problems. Copper compression socks improve blood circulation while travelling, to prevent joint pain, heavy legs and swelling in feet or ankles.

Copper-infused compression socks are the perfect solution for boosting circulation and skin health, as well as fighting odour-causing bacteria and microbes. Check out the full range by Copper Defence here!

Copper Compression Socks for Varicose Veins and Spider Veins

Varicose veins and spider veins affect anywhere from 30% to 60% of all adults, with more women affected than men. While they don’t normally cause significant health problems, people often seek medical advice because they’re unhappy with how these conditions affect their appearance or comfort.

What Are Varicose Veins and Spider Veins?

When veins twist and turn, become visible under your skin, or seem to bulge out, they are known as varicose veins. They normally show up near the calf or thigh, and may appear bluish, reddish or purple in colour. Spider veins are smaller and resemble spider webs, but are otherwise similar to varicose veins.

The main symptoms of these conditions include:

  • Bulging veins
  • Aching or cramping pain
  • Tired/heavy legs
  • Swollen ankles
  • Restless legs
  • Night cramps
  • Itching or burning
  • Throbbing or tingling

In severe cases, varicose veins may cause complications like:

  • Oedema
  • Pigmentation
  • Ulceration
  • Inflammation
  • Thrombophlebitis, or blood clots

What Causes Varicose Veins and Spider Veins?

Varicose veins occur due to a condition known as venous insufficiency. Our heart pumps blood throughout our bodies through a system of veins and arteries. Arteries move fresh blood to different parts of the body, while veins carry it back to the heart. The relaxation and contraction of muscles helps the blood move where it needs to go.

Veins also contain valves to stop blood from flowing back into them. Venous insufficiency is when these valves are damaged or not working correctly, causing blood to pool and collect in our veins. This causes them to bulge outward, particularly in the legs where the weakened valves cannot fight the force of gravity.

The following factors may affect your likelihood of getting varicose veins or spider veins:

  • Heredity
  • Obesity
  • Blood clotting disorders
  • Long periods of standing, e.g. if you’re a nurse or teacher
  • Hormonal changes during puberty, pregnancy, and menopause
  • Hormonal replacement therapy, birth control pills and other medication
  • Increased abdominal pressure from constipation, tumours, tight garments, etc.
  • Skin trauma/injury
  • Vein surgery
  • UV exposure

How Does Copper-Infused Compression Apparel Help?

One of the most common treatment options is the use of compression garments, particularly compression socks. These apply graduated pressure to help blood flow back to the heart. Compression will normally be highest near the ankle and reduce as you go up the length of the sock.

By forcing blood to move back toward the heart, compression socks help improve circulation in your legs. Copper-infused compression socks also promote better thermal regulation and healing, reduce inflammation and combat infection-causing bacteria, fungi and viruses. Since they’re anti-microbial, they help with odour prevention as well.

David’s Story

David has been a type 1 diabetic for 33 years which means he often suffers from a fungal foot infection called Pompholyx eczema. This means he gets serious and painful blisters on his feet that last for days and flare up again just as quickly. His father’s wife was the one who introduced him to Copper Clothing as they knew how painful it was for David with his condition. David told us just how Copper socks had helped control his condition, and said after 33 years he ‘remembered what feet were supposed to feel like’ when the socks antibacterial properties started to take effect. David noticed straight away that the socks didn’t smell even when he didn’t wash them for 3 days.

He compared his success to that of Dr. Hilary Jones after he undertook a similar experiment, which can you see on our youtube channel. In just three weeks David’s feet feel normal and he has no more problems with the fungal infections. David’s two sons also have Pompholyx eczema but he knows that at least now he knows of a product that can really help and we’re happy that we’ve made such an impact on David’s life.

We wish continued good health to David and his family. And thank him for his testimonial.

Freda’s Story

We were fortunate enough to speak to the lovely Freda who has tested out Copper Clothing pyjamas for herself.

Freda is 76, has survived skin cancer and has been in remission for over 16 years now, but when she was told she would have to go in for some skin grafts on her legs and hands, she knew she would get an infection. She always did. It wasn’t actually Freda who found out about copper clothing, it was her youngest daughter who saw copper clothing on the TV. But Freda wasn’t sold on the idea, she couldn’t believe such a product existed let alone work. So she looked on our website and thought she had nothing to lose. Freda purchased a  pair of Copper Pyjamas and immediately noticed the quality and comfort of the fabric, then after her operations, she didn’t get any infections and now swears by Copper Clothing products. She’s now purchased the Pyjamas AND mittens and says she’s always in them because they’re so comfy and such a great fabric.

Freda is still doing well and recommends Copper Clothing to everyone she meets. We wish her all the best.

The Relationship between Copper and Diabetes

Diabetes is on the rise across the globe. In 2015, there were already 3.5 million diabetic adults in the UK, and it’s estimated that over 5 million people will be suffering from the disease by the year 2020.

The number of diabetes related prescriptions jumped from 26 million in 2011 to 35 million in 2015.

While there is no cure for diabetes yet, the condition can be managed with proper monitoring, medication, diet, and exercise. Research shows that essential minerals such as copper may also be helpful at treating the symptoms and associated conditions.

Let’s learn a little more about the disease and how copper could help you manage it.

What is Diabetes?

Diabetes occurs when your body cannot effectively process glucose from the food you eat. In a healthy person, the pancreas produces a hormone called insulin, which turns glucose into energy to be used by the cells. In diabetics, the body stops producing insulin, doesn’t make enough of it, or doesn’t use it properly. Glucose remains in your blood instead of reaching the cells, leading to high levels of blood glucose or “blood sugar”.

This can cause a wide range of health issues over time, such as:

  • Heart Disease
  • Stroke

  • Types of Diabetes

There are basically three types of diabetes:

Type 1 Diabetes

This is considered an autoimmune disorder, where the beta cells (insulin-producing cells) in the pancreas are attacked and destroyed by the immune system. Your body cannot produce insulin as a result, and the effects are permanent. You need to take insulin daily to avoid serious complications and remain alive.

This type of diabetes may be caused by genetic or environmental conditions, but the risk factors are not perfectly understood yet. It can appear at any age but is generally diagnosed in children and young adults.

Type 2 Diabetes

This is the most common type of diabetes and starts as a condition where your body cannot process or use insulin effectively. As a result of insulin resistance, your pancreas is stimulated to produce more insulin until it can no longer do so. Production of the hormone then decreases and blood sugar levels go up.

The risk factors for this condition include environmental and health issues, such as excessive weight, lack of exercise, high blood pressure, certain genetic conditions, and family history of diabetes.

It’s mostly seen in middle-aged people or seniors but can occur at any age. Today, Type 2 diabetes is becoming increasingly common among younger adults and even children, primarily because of sedentary lifestyles, obesity, and poor diets.

Gestational Diabetes

When you’re pregnant, your body produces hormones that may block insulin production in some cases.

Generally, this type of diabetes only lasts during your pregnancy but may increase your risk of developing Type 2 diabetes during your lifetime. Type 2 diabetes is sometimes inaccurately diagnosed as gestational diabetes.

Other types include inherited conditions such as monogenic diabetes as well as cystic fibrosis-related diabetes, but these are not so common.

Did You Know?

Every day, 65 people die from diabetes-related complications in the UK.

The Type 1 strand only occurs in 10% of diabetics, while 85-90% have Type 2 diabetes.

Symptoms of Diabetes

For Type 1 diabetes, symptoms include weight loss, vitiligo, and diabetic ketoacidosis, where the body has little to no insulin and very high blood sugar levels.

With Type 2 diabetes, you may experience painful or numb feet, or find dark patches in the folds of neck/armpit skin.

Other symptoms of diabetes commonly include:

  • Excessive thirst/hunger
  • Frequent urination
  • Fatigue/drowsiness
  • Skin irritation, dryness or itchiness
  • Blurred vision
  • Slow-healing wounds

You should also be aware of prediabetes, where blood glucose levels are not yet high enough to indicate diabetes, but higher than they should be. In most cases, people with prediabetes are unaware of the condition, but 15-30% of them develop Type 2 diabetes in under 5 years.

Additional Health Issues Related to Diabetes

Diabetes can cause numerous health issues, right from brain or heart disease to nephropathy (kidney disease), neuropathy (nervous system disorders), retinopathy and other eye problems, etc. One of the most common and early complaints among diabetic patients, however, is the rise in skin problems.

Here are some of the top skin complications faced by diabetics:

Itchy Skin (Pruritus) – If your skin feels itchy all the time, it could be dry or you may have an infection. People with diabetes are particularly prone to yeast infections, because of a decrease in immunity and rise in blood sugar levels.

Poor blood circulation, scratches, and friction from ill-fitting clothing/footwear can also cause itching, especially in your feet and lower legs. It’s essential to keep your skin hydrated and treat any skin problems causing itchiness early before they get any worse and raise the risk of serious infections.

Bacterial Infections – People with long-term blood sugar imbalances and poorly controlled diabetes are far more likely to face a bacterial skin infection such as staph. Staphylococcus bacteria typically affect irritated hair follicles, causing boils, inflammation and swelling around the affected area.

Bacterial infections may also occur in the glands of your eyelids (causing styes), under your nails, and other vulnerable areas of your body. The symptoms and progress of a skin infection may also be more serious among diabetics and often require medical attention.

Fungal Infections – Fungal infections tend to affect warm and moist parts of your body, such as folds of skin. These provide the ideal breeding environment for fungal pathogens, causing problems like:

  • Athlete’s foot, an infection that affects the skin between your toes.
  • Jock itch, which causes red and itchy patches near your genitals or inner thighs.
  • Ringworm, which causes itching or blistering with scaly, ring-shaped patches on your scalp, chest, stomach, groin, feet or nails.
  • Vaginal infections caused by Candida albicans, a yeast-like fungus.
  • Angular cheilitis, which affects the corners of the mouth and feels like small cuts.
  • Onychomycosis, which is a fungal infection that affects your nails and causes discoloration, thickening, and separation from the nail bed.

Foot-Related Problems – For most diabetics, their feet become a particularly sore point because of slow healing and low immunity. Elevated glucose levels in the blood affect circulation, leading to frequent swelling (oedema), pain, loss of heat, foot ulcers, bacterial/fungal infections, and slow healing.

It can also cause nerve damage, which causes you to lose feeling in your toes or other parts of your feet. Foot ulcers and open wounds can get infected if they are neglected, and may even lead to amputation in severe cases.

Why Do Diabetics Need Proper Foot Care?

Proper foot care and hygiene is crucial for diabetics, especially since they may not feel pain or any other sensation indicating common problems like:

Foot Ulcers –

Diabetic foot ulcers are a common problem, and one that requires careful attention and medical care. If small cuts, scratches or scrapes caused by injury or ill-fitting footwear are neglected, they may ulcerate and expose you to severe danger of losing the limb or even your life.

Don’t think a tiny cut can be all that serious? Here are some statistics to consider:

  • Close to 25% of all diabetic patients develop foot ulcers at some point
  • Healing is slow, and over 50% of these open wounds become infected
  • Of all these infections, 20% lead to amputation of the affected limb

Medical professionals claim that a limb may be lost to diabetes every 20 seconds, but all of these amputations could be avoided with proper preventive care and timely treatment.


Venous insufficiency is a condition where the valves in leg veins become damaged or weakened, allowing blood to flow both ways instead of back toward the heart. This leads to blood pooling and collecting in the limb, which causes swelling (known as peripheral oedema) in the legs, ankles, and feet.

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) – Poor circulation in the limbs combined with venous insufficiency makes diabetics more prone to DVT as well. High blood sugar can also cause dehydration, which causes your blood to get thicker and raises the risk of clotting.

If a blood clot forms in your leg, it can travel up to your lungs and block an artery, causing heart attack-like symptoms such as rapid pulse, shortness of breath and chest pain. This is known as a pulmonary embolism, and can kill you within seconds. You may also develop Post Thrombotic Syndrome (PTS) a long-term condition that causes painful skin changes, ulcers, etc.

Make sure you inspect your feet for wounds, scratches, and sores on a daily basis, and visit a podiatrist regularly. You should also keep your feet clean and dry, and wear special diabetic footwear if your podiatrist recommends it. Compression socks are a great way to improve circulation in your feet and legs, especially if they are made of copper-infused fabric.

How Could Copper Help You Manage Diabetes?

According to various health studies conducted over the last three decades, copper can help with the prevention and treatment of a wide range of diseases. It used to be considered the cause of various health problems, till research in the 90s showed that copper is an essential mineral that our bodies need for over 50 enzymatic processes.

The reason behind this confusion is that inflammation and disease, including diabetes, may falsely increase levels of copper in the body. Older studies also used free copper ions, plasma copper and ceruloplasmin instead of copper bound to peptides such as GHK or proteins like albumin.

In reality, there is hardly any free copper in the human body, with approximately one copper ion per cell. Close to 95% of copper is bound to ceruloplasmin and not easily available, but protein or peptide bound copper is easily metabolized by our bodies. Most copper-rich foods, supplements, cosmetics and other products are rich in the latter, which is often called “bio-copper” because of its natural health benefits.

GHK-bound copper (GHK-Cu) is a tripeptide found in human plasma, saliva, and urine. While free copper ions oxidize low-density lipoproteins, GHK-Cu blocks their oxidation. Along with anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, this tripeptide improves wound healing, immune function, development of red blood cells and skin cells, etc.

Since diabetics often suffer from skin problems, inflammation, and slow healing, copper can help them manage the symptoms of the disease. And, along with other essential minerals such as zinc, magnesium, chromium, manganese, and vanadium, copper may also help with regulation of blood sugar.

The Copper-Zinc Balance in Our Body

Zinc is one of the most important minerals for people with blood sugar imbalances since it helps beta cells in the pancreas produce insulin. It also helps insulin bind to cell membranes, where it transports glucose from the blood for conversion into energy. The mineral is essential for the metabolism of glucose and part of antioxidant enzymes as well.

Not only are copper and zinc essential for our health, but the two minerals balance each other. People with diabetes often have a zinc deficiency, as well as decreased levels of copper. Healthy diets and mineral supplements can help maintain a balanced intake of both, reducing the risk of diabetes and managing the symptoms of the disease.

With low levels of zinc/copper in the blood, there may be an increase in blood sugar as well as insulin resistance, leading to diabetes and atherosclerosis or other cardiovascular problems. These minerals also fight free radical damage, which can raise the risk of diabetic neuropathy, retinopathy, and nephropathy.

How Does Copper Help with Diabetic Health Complications?

In addition to helping you manage your blood sugar, copper has many health benefits, especially for your skin. Copper-infused compression socks and accessories can help improve blood flow as well as foot health, making it easier to prevent diabetes-related problems or manage existing ones.

Here’s how:

Copper is anti-microbial, and effectively kills bacteria, viruses or fungi that cause skin infections or bad odours, within hours of contact.

The mineral also makes skin plumper, stronger and more flexible, by boosting the production of collagen and elastin in skin cells.

Copper-impregnated fabric aids with the development of new skin cells, promoting faster wound healing and protection from pathogens.

Fabric infused with copper ions helps with insulation and thermal regulation, keeping your legs and feet warm and reducing the risk of damage.

Copper socks with graduated compression help blood flow back toward the heart, reducing peripheral oedema and the risk of blood clots/DVT.

How Can You Harness the Power of Copper?

The best ways to make use of copper for its health benefits include:


Include a lot of copper-rich foods in your diet, such as organ meats, seafood, green leafy vegetables, nuts and seeds, legumes, whole grains, mushrooms, soy products and certain fruits. You could also take a mineral supplement with balanced copper and zinc, drink water that’s stored in copper containers, or use copper cookware for preparing meals.

Copper Clothing

Other than copper compression socks and sleeves, diabetics can benefit from wearing other copper-infused apparel too. Modern technology allows copper ions to be harnessed in a wide range of materials. These are used to create everything from hospital clothing and bed linen to tops, pyjamas, underwear and more.

Copper Infusion Clothing – Athletes Love It, and Here’s Why

Among the many fans of compression sportswear and clothing, elite athletes top the list. The popularity of compression sleeves received a major boost when Allen Iverson used one in 2001. The sleeve was created by the NBA star’s doctor, to provide relief from bursitis and swelling in the elbow.

After Iverson scored 51 points in that game, compression sleeves became the next big thing for other players as well. Today, pro basketball players like LeBron James swear by compression gear, as do runners like London Marathon record holder Paula Radcliffe and 2012 Olympics 800m finalist Andrew Osagie.

Why Do Elite Athletes Use Compression Garments?

Compression clothing is believed to offer many health benefits for those involved in active sports. It’s equally popular among professional athletes and amateur sports enthusiasts, because of the boost it provides to performance, endurance and recovery.

Graduated compression applies different levels of pressure to your legs, arms, torso or other parts of the body. This helps to improve blood circulation, venous return and muscle oxygenation in that specific area. For an athlete, this means reduced joint/muscle pain, soreness, and stiffness after a game or training session.

So, Why the Fuss Over Copper-Infused Compression Clothing?

The use of copper-infused materials in compression garments takes the benefits to another level. Here’s an overview of how it helps when you’re playing sports, working out or leading an active lifestyle:

  • Athlete’s Foot – Bacterial and fungal infections thrive in warm and humid environments, which is what sweaty feet provide them. Copper has powerful anti-microbial properties, which helps to keep Athlete’s Foot and other infections at bay.
  • Body Odour – Since copper kills bacteria, fungi, and viruses upon contact, it prevents these microbes from feeding on your sweat and emitting nasty odours. It’s the most natural way to stay fresh, even if you’ve been sweating for hours!
  • Heat Regulation – When it comes to thermal regulation, copper is more effective than silver or other traditional materials. Copper compression socks and sleeves boost circulation and keep your hands and feet warm in any weather.
  • Faster Recovery – Compression socks and leggings can help stabilize your lower leg after an injury, allowing you to recover faster. Copper-infused socks also fight inflammation and infection to make the healing process even faster.
  • Better Performance – Graduated compression improves blood flow, which can have a positive effect on your stamina and endurance. Copper-infused compression socks also reduce vibrations in the lower leg, preventing tired/heavy feet.
  • Less Swelling – Heavy-impact sports and workouts can lead to swollen ankles or feet, especially if you’re dehydrated. Copper compression socks prevent this from happening, and can also reduce any swelling you already have.
  • Moisture Wicking – Staying dry and comfortable is crucial during sports, especially to prevent chafing and irritation. Copper-embedded compression garments wick moisture away, and allow complete mobility no matter how long you wear them.
