Health Benefits of Drinking Water in Copper Recipients

Here is why you should drink water in copper recipients.

According to Ayurveda, water stored in a copper vessel has the ability to balance all the three doshas in your body, (vata, kapha and pitta) and it does so by positively charging the water. This process is called Oligodynamic effect which has the ability to destroy a wide range of harmful microbes, molds, fungi etc. The water stored in a copper vessel is known as 'tamara jal' and is supposed to be consumed after storing the water in a copper vessel for at least eight hours.

For thousands of years, people of India and many other Asian countries have known the benefits of drinking water from Copper Vessels. Ancient Ayurvedic scriptures have stated many health benefits of storing water in copper vessels. Now, the current medical studies are also supporting this ancient Ayurvedic practice.

When water is stored in a copper vessel, the copper gently leaches into the water and lends it all its positive properties. The best part about this water is that it never becomes stale and can be stored this way for long periods of time.

Reasons Why Drinking Water from a Copper Vessel Is Beneficial

  1. Helps the digestive system perform better;
  2. Aids in weight loss;
  3. Helps heal wounds faster;
  4. Slows down aging;
  5. Helps maintain cardiovascular health and beats hypertension;
  6. Can fight cancer;

  8. Stimulates your brain;

The most amazing fact about copper is that it is required in most processes that occur in our body. Right from cell formation to aiding in the absorption of iron, copper is an essential mineral for the functioning of your body. This is one of the reasons that it also helps in keeping anaemia at bay. An essential component in the entire process of absorbing and using iron present in the body, copper helps keep the levels of haeme (iron) up and regulates its flow in your blood vessels.

How to Drink Water from a Copper Vessel

  1. First, it is very important to buy vessels that are made of Pure Copper. Do not buy the ones that have other metals mixed in it. Some of the common vessels made with copper are copper water jugs or a kalash. Nowadays pure copper water bottles, including some really beautiful hand painted copper water bottles and Moscow mule cups are also available online. Check out the links below from Amazon;
  2. Once you have bought it, rinse it out thoroughly with water. Then fill it with water and cover it. Let the water rest for a minimum of 6 hours up to a maximum of 8 hours and then drink it;
  3. You can follow this ancient Ayurvedic practice:

    Keep water in a copper vessel overnight by your bedside and drink this water first thing in the morning when you wake up. This particular practice is very useful in stimulating your bowel movements in the morning. This practice will keep your digestive system very healthy and set your metabolism for rest of the day. You will feel very refreshed and light every day.

How to Buy

Here is a guide to help you in buying the right kind of vessel.

  • It is important to buy vessels that are made of pure copper. Do not buy ones that have other metals mixed in it. Some of the commonest vessels made with copper are copper water jugs or a kalash. If buying a jug or kalash is too expensive for you, you can invest in a copper glass;
  • Once you have bought it, rinse it out with water and pour water into the vessel and cover it. You can use a steel or glass dish for this;
  • One very easy way to distinguish between pure copper and an adulterated version is to know that copper is a very soft metal and pure copper is difficult to mould into intricate shapes. If the design of your copper vessel is very complicated or detailed, it is most probably not made with pure copper.

How to Wash

Do not use a coarse scrub to wash the inside of the vessel as it will tend to scrape away copper from the vessel. Instead, use one half of a lemon (you can squeeze out the juice) and rub it on the inside of the vessel. Allow it to stand for a few minutes and then wash off with plain water.

You can also use baking soda with water. Coat the the inside of the vessel with this mixture and allow it to stand for a few minutes then rinse away the excess baking soda.

Word of Caution

Copper is not naturally utilized by our body thus too much of the metal can be detrimental. As per the FDA, about 12 mg/day is more than sufficient for the body to use without causing any harm. Do not abuse this exercise. Drinking water two or three times a day from a copper vessel is more than enough to procure its benefits.

How Much Is Too Much?

  • Drinking water from copper vessel has numerous health benefits but this does not mean that you can drink this water all day long;
  • Drinking water stored in the copper vessel once in the early morning and then in the evening is more than enough to get the required amount of copper for our body;
  • Remember you should not drink this copper vessel water all year long. Once you start drinking water stored in a copper vessel you can continue this practice for three months and then take a break for one month. After a one month break, you can continue drinking water again from a copper vessel for next three months. This gives our body time to cleanse any excess copper deposited in our body. The body has its own mechanism of eliminating the excess of anything.

Ayurvedic rules are very precise and if we follow them accordingly we will never get any side effects.
