Ayurveda and CopperThe Copperhed Team
Ayurveda emphasizes prevention and encourages maintenance of one’s health through mindfulness of diet, lifestyle, herbs, and special rituals. It originated in India over 3,000 years ago. One practice of this ancient natural system of medicine is the use of copper vessels to store water. A plethora of science has surfaced supporting the many copper health benefits to storing water in a 100% copper mug or vessel.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has listed copper as the only solid material that kills bacteria. Knowing the benefits is certainly helpful but it’s important to understand the proper way to consume the water for maximum benefits. When you store the water for at least 8 hours, small amounts of copper ions dissolve in the water. Keep at room temperature and cover. The water can destroy any bacteria, parasites, or microbes. Make sure to rinse it well with an acidic solution of water and lemon prior to filling with water.
Some of the Amazing Benefits of Drinking from a Copper Vessel:
- Helps the digestive system perform better
- Aids in weight loss

- Take a break for a few days at the end of each month
- Copper vessels should be replaced every 3 years
