I believe you want to avoid copper and take zinc.

Too much zinc can prevent the uptake of copper which is bad for your health.

Copper helps with the red blood cells in the blood vessels in the immune system among other functions.

So make sure you get enough copper in foods such as leafy greens or liver or shiitake mushrooms etc.
