Ayurveda recommends a simple, practical and effective method of drinking water in its most holistic way - drinking water from a copper vessel. To make copper water, pour water in the copper vessel and leave it overnight. When water is kept for a specific time period in the copper glass, it kills the undesirable bacteria and viruses and the resultant water gets charged with the health benefitting qualities of the copper. Drink it as soon as you get up in the morning. You can also use your copper vessel to drink water from it at all times. It's recommended to drink the water at room temperature. The copper cups should not be stored in fridge. Copper darkens naturally over a period of time. The copper cup requires cleaning from time to time. Use lemon juice or tamarind to rub the utensils. Leave it for few minutes and wash with water. Copper is known to be far more poisonous to bacteria than others, e.g. stainless steel or aluminum. Storing water only for about three hours in a copper vessel can kill harmful bacteria.
Drinking a glass of room temperature water washes the gastrointestinal tract, flushes the kidneys, and stimulates peristalsis (Peristalsis is a series of wave-like muscle contractions that moves food to different processing stations in the digestive tract).
Copper is a good tonic for the liver, spleen, and lymphatic system and helps in curing anemia. The health benefits of copper include proper growth, utilization of iron, enzymatic reactions, connective tissues, hair, eyes, aging and energy production.
Copper melts away the excess fat. Copper water helps in maintaining digestive health, reduces fat and alleviates excess obesity.
