    Anyone have suggestions or information about making copper more bioavailable / usable to red blood cells?
    Wanting to increase ceruloplasmin, increase serum copper, and reduce unbound copper.

    Vitamin B5 deficiency can raise (unbound) blood copper and vitamin B5/pantothenate might be helpful to bind copper and make it more bioavailable (reference).
    Also, ceruloplasmin synthesis depends on adrenal and liver function and glutathione can bind copper in small amounts.

    @PinkPanda -- interesting about B5. I'll try to get more B5 foods in my diet!
