Is it a wonder why for thousands of years, Asians have been carrying out the tradition of drinking water from a copper vessel?
According to Ayurvedic philosophy, leave water in the copper vessel overnight and drink between 350 - 500ml of the water first thing on an empty stomach. A sure way to detox the entire stomach and help regulate the working of the liver and kidneys.
Copper is anti-bacterial, acts as an effective anti-oxidant, improves immunity, supports good health, prevents aging, eliminates toxins and free radicals, and stimulates the brain. Our copper water bottles are perfect for everyone and ideal for those with an active lifestyle. Because copper is naturally anti-bacterial, our copper water bottles are naturally self-sterilizing and do not require as much cleaning as other water bottles.
Ayurveda states that water stored in a copper vessel balances the three doshas in your body (vata, kapha and pitta) by gently infusing the water with the positive health properties of copper. Copper also makes the water naturally alkaline, which helps balance your body’s pH levels.
According to the FDA, about 12 mg/day of copper is more than sufficient for the body to use without causing any harm. Do not exceed one bottle of copper water a day.
Our Ayurvedic copper water bottle is specially designed by us, made from 100% a pure copper inner sheet and lined with nickel outer coating. As you may know, pure copper as a metal will patina due to oxidation and so therefore added the coating, preventing it from discolouring. Other copper bottles dont necessarily have this as a feature and after a few days will start to discolour.
We have added a food-safe seal to prevent leakage of water from the cap. Understandably, real metal on metal screw will still allow seepage of water, hence our addition of this feature.
There are many other copper bottles out there, but you have to be careful that other metals have not been mixed into it. Our bottle is 100% authentic from India. You know when the copper bottle is authentic like ours, as the metal is very soft.
Do not use a coarse scrub to wash the inside of the bottle as it will tend to scrape away copper. Instead, pour the juice of half a lemon with hot water in the bottle, allow it to stand for 15 minutes and then wash with plain water. The oxidation colour will begin to disappear.
Top ten reasons why drinking from a copper water bottle can change your life:
1. Improves the Digestive System
Drinking from a copper water bottle is very beneficial to the digestive system. It flushes out the stomach and digestive tract and helps detox the liver and kidneys. It also increases the absorption of nutrients from food and helps encourage peristalsis, which is the rhythmic contraction and relaxation of the stomach that helps digest food and move it through the digestive system. Drinking from a copper water bottle also helps kill harmful bacteria and prevent an upset stomach.
2. Builds a Strong Immune System
Copper is well-known for its incredible anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties. Copper is especially effective against E. coli and S.aureus, two bacteria that are commonly found in our environment and are known to cause severe illnesses in the human body. In fact, recent studies have shown that storing water in a copper bottle will dramatically decrease the risk of bacterial contamination. Copper water vessels have been used for centuries in countries around the world (like India) that lack a good sanitation system in order to help prevent water-borne diseases.
3. Supports Weight Loss
In addition to improving the functioning of your digestive system and building a strong immune system, drinking from a copper water bottle will help your body break down fat and eliminate it as efficiently as possible. Combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise, drinking from a copper water bottle can be a safe and all-natural way to maintain a healthy weight.
4. Prevents Aging
Drinking from a copper water bottle can also dramatically decrease the appearance of fine lines and slow the appearance of aging. Water stored in a copper bottle is loaded with anti-oxidants, aids the production of new skin cells, and fights off free radicals which contribute to the appearance of aging.
5. Prevents Cancer
Because water stored in a copper bottle is loaded with anti-oxidants, it is also effective at helping prevent and fight off cancer. In fact, studies conducted by the American Cancer Society have shown that copper has significant anti-cancer effects on the body and prevents the onset of cancer.
6. Maintains Cardiovascular Health
Studies have also shown that copper helps minimize the risk of developing heart disease, helps regulate blood pressure, and lowers cholesterol levels. Copper also helps prevent the build-up of plaque in the arteries and dilates blood vessels to allow better flow of blood to the heart.
7. Supports the Thyroid Gland
Copper cannot be produced within the body and needs to be sourced from external sources. Studies have shown that people that experience problems with their thyroid generally suffer from low levels of copper. While copper deficiency is most common with people that suffer from hyperthyroidism (over-active thyroid gland), copper deficiency is also common with people that experience hypothyroidism (under-active thyroid gland). Copper is one of the most important minerals and is essential in order for your thyroid gland and body to function properly. Drinking from a copper water bottle helps combat copper deficiency and regulate the proper functioning of your thyroid gland. In addition, copper aids the body’s absorption of iron, which is essential to maintain healthy iron levels and prevent anemia.
8. Stimulates the Brain
Copper is a known brain stimulant and helps your mind work faster and more efficiently. The brain works by transmitting impulses from one neuron to another through an area known as the synapses. These neurons are covered by the myelin sheath that acts like a sort of conductive agent. Copper aids in the synthesis of materials that are essential for the formation of these myelin sheaths.
9. Fights Arthritis and Inflamed Joints
Copper's anti-inflammatory properties help relieve aches and pains caused by arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and inflamed joints. In addition, copper strengthens the bones and immune system, which makes it an excellent remedy for arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
10. Keeps Skin Healthy and Acne Free
Copper is the key component in the production of new cells that help replenish the top layers of your skin and keep it fresh and glowing. The production of new cells promotes smooth, blemish-free and clear skin. Experts say that drinking from a copper water bottle on a regular basis, especially early in the morning, can make a very significant difference to the health of your skin.
