Copper vessels had been a daily habit in most Asian countries until the 20th century, especially in India. Although a large number of people have remained loyal to this habit, many have switched to other metals. Once again, the times are changing and a plethora of scientific evidence confirming the benefits of using copper vessels to store and drink water are resurfacing.
There is much science confirming the healthful benefits of copper. The shape, design, and material of a copper vessel plays a role in its health benefits. When you store water in a copper vessel such a copper bottle (Lota) for at least 6-8 hours (overnight), copper ions dissolve in that water in small amounts. Termed as the Oligodynamic Effect, this water now has the potency to destroy harmful microbes, fungi, bacteria, etc.
This unique property of copper was recognized by the Vedic Indians. It was eventually incorporated into a daily practice based on the teachings of Ayurveda, and is now being cultivated by many cultures and growing in popularity around the world.
Drinking water stored in a pure copper vessel has many major health benefits. It's rumoured to slow down aging, aids in weight loss, helps in pregnancy and it's a strong antioxidant that helps fight off diseases and boost brainpower. Let this ancient practice create a fresh start for your body.
NOTE: An excess of anything is not well received by our bodies. This includes copper. Create a gap of one month after every three months of using the copper vessel. Changing your copper vessels after every three months of usage is also recommended but not necessary.
