Thousands of years before modern medicine provided scientific evidence for the mind-body connection, the sages of India developed Ayurveda. It is an Indian Ayurveda tradition to drink water stored in a copper vessel. Copper alkalyses water, helping to balance pH levels in the body. From an Ayuvedic perspective there are many other health benefits from drinking out of copper vessels including the removal of bacteria, assisting the immune system and helping to fight inflamatory conditions. Recent scientific studies are supporting the power of copper and bringing many back to embracing the practice and reestablishing this daily routine.
Handcrafted Copper Water Bottles
The U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has registered copper as the only solid material that kills bacteria and protects us from vulnerable health risks. When you store water in a copper vessel made from copper for at least 8 hours, copper ions dissolve in that water in small amounts. Termed as the Oligodynamic Effect, this water now has the potency to destroy harmful microbes, fungi and bacteria.
