Drinking water from copper water bottles was not just a simple age-old practice done by Indian ancestors but, has proven scientific and medicinal value in Ayurveda. According to Ayurveda, our health is determined by three core bodily bio-elements or Doshas present in our body, known as Vata, Kapha, and Pitta. The water stored in Copper Vessels is called “Tamra Jal”, that helps in balancing all the three Doshas mentioned above.
As copper is not produced in our body, we have to take it from external sources. Ayurveda suggests, we must keep water in a copper vessel for at least 8 hours prior to drinking. This process helps some amount of copper to dissolve in water that will be absorbed by our body. Before storing water in Ayurveda copper vessels for the first time, you must wash it carefully. You should not wash it with a hard scrubbing substance, instead, you can use lemon. Squeeze out the lemon juice and rub the lemon on its interiors then after a few minutes wash it off with pure water. Here is how you can be fit and healthy by including copper in your daily regime:
Improves Digestive Systems
Copper is known to aid in gas, acidity, constipation or indigestion and stomach infection. It helps in detoxification and cleansing and regulates the contraction and relaxation of our stomach, resulting in the smooth movement and absorption of food. Drink a glass of water from copper water vessels early in the morning on an empty stomach and it will help your liver and kidney.
Provide protection from Bacteria
Copper is known to have an oligodynamic effect on our body. It can effectively kill or inhibit the growth of bacteria such as E.coli and S.aureus. These two bacteria are the root causes of waterborne diseases like diarrhea, jaundice, and dysentery. Drinking water through copper bottles will help in preventing them.
Assist in weight loss
If you are doing everything to keep your body fat to a minimum then consider adding copper to your weight loss regimen. Copper water will help your body in breaking down fat and eliminate it efficiently. The early morning use of copper infused water is the best way to shed those extra kilos.
Improves Heart health and helps in Hypertension
We all are aware of the various heart-related problems. Copper helps in regulating blood pressure, heart rate and reduces hypertension. It helps in the better movement of blood in the arteries by preventing the formation of plaque.
Removes wrinkles and helps in aging
If you are fighting wrinkles and want to improve how you age then try drinking water from Ayurveda copper jug. Copper is an essential component in the formation of Melanin that is responsible for the color of our skin, hair & eyes. It also helps in the creation of new cells and removes free radicals that cause wrinkles.
In all, copper benefits have deeper functioning that we can imagine. This simple habit could make our health a million times better in exchange of just a minor investment of buying a copper vessel, which you can easily get from Vasanthi Health, a trusted store for handcrafted copper vessels.
