Many generations of people living in India have known that drinking water from copper bottles or drinking water which has been stored in a copper vessel overnight, is beneficial for their health.
According to Ayurveda (the traditional Hindu system of medicine), water which is stored in a copper vessel has the ability to balance all the three doshas in your body, (kapha, pitta and vata) as a result of positively charging the water. It has also been recognised for a very long time in India, that a water purification process is achieved when it is stored in a copper vessel. This very simple water purification process can kill microorganisms like algae, bacteria, fungi, molds and viruses, present in the water that could be harmful for the body. It also helps maintain the body’s pH balance (acid-alkaline). There are also many other health benefits that have been attributed to drinking water stored in copper bottles.
When drinking water is stored in a copper bottle overnight, small amounts of copper ions dissolve in the water. This process is called the Oligodynamic Effect as this water now has the potency to kill harmful microbes, fungi, bacteria and viruses. Additionally, copper is considered a natural remedy for reducing fine lines and wrinkles on your face. It is also known for its strong anti-oxidant and cell-forming properties that help in fighting off free radicals, which are involved in the formation of fine lines. Water stored in copper bottles can also help in the production of new and healthy skin cells.
