Copper Cups



Yogis and traditional households in India have for thousands of years (and are till today) been utilizing a simple, practical and effective method of drinking water in its most holistic way- drinking water from a copper cup or a large copper vessel where water is stored.

Ayurveda recommends storing water in copper vessels. Benefits of copper according to ayurveda:
- Drinking water from copper cups prevents ageing, vaya-sthapak.
- Copper can destroy undesirable virus and bacteria. When copper dissolves in water, water becomes ionic (electrolyte) as can be ascertained by its pH measurement. That is the reason the micro-organisms get killed in such water. This is called the Oligodynamic effect, as proven by research. 
- Water is energized. Taste the water from a copper cup to experience the energized quality of water!

According to a 2012 study, storing contamined water in copper pots for up to 16 hours at room temperature considerably reduced the presence of harmful microbes, so much that the researchers inferred that “copper holds promise as a point-of-use solution for microbial purification of drinking-water, especially in developing countries.” Another study found that copper surfaces killed 97% of hospital ICU bacteria that can cause infections, resulting in 40% decrease in the infection rates.

Ayurveda texts suggests that water stored in a copper vessel has the ability to balance all the three doshas in your body (vata, kapha and pitta). Doshas is a Sanskrit word meaning ‘mind-body constitution’ and all three doshas are present in every cell, tissue, and organ – for movement, metabolism, and fluidity – are essential components of our life.
