During my childhood days I remember my grandma storing water in a copper vessel overnight. She would have us drink it first thing in the morning, claiming that the water was extremely healthy for the mind and body. Now when I see these ancient customs re-emerging, I look back and think, I should have taken my grandma’s advice seriously. However, this age-old practice referenced in ancient texts of Ayurveda is now supported by several scientific studies.
Here are the best benefits of drinking water from copper vessel:
- Aids weight loss
To lose weight quicker, try drinking water stored in a copper vessel regularly. Apart from fine tuning your digestive system to perform better, copper also helps your body break down fat and eliminates it more efficiently, thereby, helping your body keep only what it will use and throw out the rest.
- Slows down Ageing
If you are worried about the appearance of fine lines on your face, copper is your natural remedy. Packed with very strong anti-oxidant and cell forming properties, copper fights off free radicals, one of the main reasons for the formation of fine lines.
- Protects from Infections
Copper is known to be oligodynamic in nature (the sterilizing effect of metals on bacteria), and can destroy bacteria very effectively. It is especially effective against E.coli and S.aureus, two bacteria that are commonly found in our environment and known to cause severe illnesses in the human body
- Boosts skin health and melanin production
Copper is the main component in the production of melanin (a pigment that mitigates the color of your eyes, hair and skin) in our bodies. Apart from that copper also aids in the production of new cells that help replenish the top most layers of your skin leaving you with smooth and supple skin.
- Prevents Water borne diseases
Copper very effectively destroys many bacteria that cause water-borne diseases. It is especially effective against E.coli and S.aureus, known to cause diseases like diarrhea, dysentery and jaundice. It can also help reduce the risk of cross-contamination and prevent the spread of infection. So, if you suspect that water is contaminated, store it in a copper vessel to be certain you are drinking healthy and clean water.
