Mineral imbalances can effect many different biological systems in our bodies.  New research looked into the ratio of zinc to copper and the relationship to anxiety symptoms.

Individuals with anxiety and a control group had their levels of zinc and copper measured.  Results showed that those with anxiety had significantly higher levels of copper. 

The subjects were then given zinc to normalize levels.  Their anxiety symptoms improved after the zinc therapy.
