Copper jewelry for rheumatoid arthritis - what is it?
An English study recently came to the conclusion that magnetic and copper tapes do not help with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). In the study carried out in England, 70 patients with RA wore four different wristbands for five weeks: a copper bracelet, a magnetic bracelet with approx. 2200 gauss and a weakly magnetized one. Another bracelet that was demagnetized served as a placebo.
The study concluded that the bracelets had no effect on pain, mobility, inflammation parameters, or the number of swollen joints. Source: Richmond SJ et al. Copper Bracelts and Magnetic Wrist straps for Rheumatic Arthrithis - Analgesic and Anti-Inflammators Effects. PLos ONE 2013; 8 (9)
