Why Choose a Copper Infused Mask over regular cloth masks?

First of all, let us be clear. Wearing any mask is better than NO MASK. It does not matter what mask you have on hand, if you don’t have the luxury of choosing your preferred mask, then just use what you have.

Of course, if you wanted to really protect yourself and your loved ones, then it is important to have an understanding of what is real and what is not.

Why Copper?

Copper has been known to keep humans safe since medieval times when Copper flasks were used to keep drinking water safe for humans. People have known of the germ killing capabilities of copper long before Science caught up and proved it.

How exactly does Copper kill germs?

When Copper comes in contact with any germs, for example, Covid-19 aka coronavirus, itreleases reactive ions which bombards the exterior of the microbe. This bombardment can puncture a hole through the outer layer, allowing the Copper to enter the cell and wreak havoc there.

Most cells have various amounts of metals like iron and zinc. When Copper suddenly comes in and kicks out some of these metals, the cell then faces a situation where some of the cell’s proteins get destroyed or become inactive. If 40%% of the cell becomes inactive, the cell dies.

Copper is a natural germ killer

The human body does contain Copper. In fact, our immune system uses Copper as one of the mechanisms to fight ininvading germs: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4521016/

Using a Copper infused mask have other benefits too. Many people do not yet have the habit of taking care of their masks properly. You can see them shifting the masks below the chin, putting the masks on tables when they are eating, or touching the surfaces of the mask and then touching their eyes or noses.

The Copper reduces the amount of active viruses and germs and actually help to keep people from being exposed to more germs.

Conclusions

There is no such thing as a 100% prevention against catching any virus or illness. However, common sense behaviour like washing hands regularly, wearing masks when going out, and proper handling of the masks can all add to your safety and the well-being of those around you.
