According to Ayurveda medicine, water stored in a copper vessel has the ability to balance all the three Doshas in your body fluids (Vata, Kapha and Pitta) and it does so by positively charging the water. Copper is known to be oligo-dynamic in nature (the sterilizing effect of metals on bacteria), and can effectively destroy bacteria. It is especially effective against E. coli and S. aureus (diarrheal, dysentery and jaundice). Our brain works by transmitting impulses (or orders) from one neuron to another through a region known as the synapses. A sheath called myelin sheath, which acts like a kind of conductive agent – helping the flow of impulses, covers these neurons. How does copper figure here, you ask? Well, copper actually helps in the synthesis of phospholipids that are essential for the formation of these myelin sheaths. Copper is one of the most important trace minerals the thyroid gland needs to function optimally. A lack of copper can send the functioning of the gland out of sync. Therefore, when you drink water from a copper vessel it makes up for this possible deficiency and regulates the functioning of the thyroid gland. Copper has very potent anti-inflammatory properties, it is especially great to relieve aches and pains caused by inflamed joints — like in the case of arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Apart from that, copper also has bone and immune system strengthening properties, making it the perfect remedy for arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Drinking water stored in a copper vessel is the main component in the production of melanin (a pigment that mitigates the colour of your eyes, hair and skin) in our bodies. Apart from that copper, also aids in the production of new cells that help replenish the top most layers of your skin. While melanin helps the body stay safe from sun damage, speeds up wound healing and covers up scars, production of new cells is a boon for smooth, blemish-free and clear skin. Packed with very strong anti-oxidant and cell forming properties, copper fights off free radicals (especially on the face) – one of the main reasons for the formation of fine lines — and helps in the production of new and healthy skin cells that replace old dying ones. Copper has properties that stimulate peristalsis (the rhythmic contraction and relaxation of the stomach that helps the food gets digested and move along the digestive tract), kills harmful bacteria and reduces the inflammation inside the stomach, making it a great remedy for ulcers, disorders and infections. Apart from that, copper also helps cleanse and detox your stomach, regulates the working of your liver and kidneys, aids in proper elimination of waste and ensures the absorption of nutrients from food. According to Ayurveda, if you want to help detox your stomach, drink a large glass of water that has been stored in a copper vessel, early in the morning on an empty stomach (one litter). Apart from fine-tuning your digestive system to perform better, copper also helps your body break down fat and eliminate it more efficiently. Right from cell formation to helping in the absorption of iron, copper is an essential mineral for the functioning of your body. This is one of the reasons that it also helps in keeping anemia at bay. An essential component in the entire process of absorbing and using iron present in the body, copper helps keep the levels of iron up and regulates its flow in your blood vessels. Known for its immense anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties, it is no wonder that copper is a great way to heal wounds quickly. Heart disease is one of the most common ailments that most people suffer from, and copper helps minimize your risk of developing the disease. Copper it also helps to prevent the accumulation of plaque and has the documented (clinical test) effect of dilating blood vessels to allow for the better flow of blood to the heart. It also helps lower one’s triglyceride levels and so, if heart disease is your bane, try drinking copper infused water for great results. Copper — AyurAqua has very strong antioxidant properties that help fight off free radicals and negate their ill effects – to help regulate blood pressure, heart rate and lowers one’s cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and ultimately helps in the treatment of carcinoma.
