- Copper drinking vessels have been utilized in Ayurveda for centuries. Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word that means “The Science of Life and Longevity”. It is the ancient, holistic health system arising from the sages of India, who were adept at observing their inner experience and bringing their mind/body/spirit into harmony with nature.
- As Part of a Daily Routine (Dinacharya), it is recommended to drink water stored overnight in a pure copper vessel first thing in the morning. Drinking this water upon waking washes the GI Tract, flushes the Kidneys, and stimulates Peristalsis.
- In Western Medicine, copper is known as an essential trace mineral that helps with the formation of collagen. It also has antimicrobial properties and increases the absorption of iron in the body. Copper deficiency can cause an increased risk of infection, osteoporosis, impaired neurological function, and compromised growth.
