It's also a component of the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase. Because copper and zinc compete with each other for absorption, an individual taking a high amount of zinc (for example, 50 mg daily for an extended time period) can develop a copper deficiency.

For this reason, zinc supplementation should be accompanied by copper supplementation. In a clinical setting, copper supplementation protected red blood cells from oxidation.
