Why Copper? (20+ Health Benefits)

Copper Has An Ancient Medicinal History

Ayurveda is a traditional medicine system native to India - dating back to 6000 BC! Ayurveda is linked to the Vedas, a collection of ancient texts that form the basis of Hinduism. 

Scientific studies show Ayurvedic treatments can be helpful for conditions like arthritis, asthma, anxiety, and even cancer. 

For over 5000 years, ancient Ayurvedic texts have recommended storing water in a copper jug overnight and drinking it early in the morning on an empty stomach to cure sickness and maintain health.

According to Ayurvedic practitioners, drinking water from a copper vessel can help to improve digestion, relieve joint pain, and reduce inflammation. 

Ayurveda states that when you store water in a copper vessel, it has the ability to balance all the three Doshas – Vata, Pitta and Kapha in our body. This happens because the copper vessel positively charges the water, energizes it and balances its pH; making the water alkaline - ‘live’ again - leaving it tasting silky smooth.

Additionally, copper has antimicrobial properties that can help to purify the water and make it easier for the body to absorb.

Evidence recorded 5000 years ago in the ancient Egyptian Smith Papyrus, highlights copper's disinfectant capabilities. Cultures such as the ancient Greeks, Chinese, and Ayurvedic practitioners in India believed drinking water from copper vessels could prevent infections & purify water - safeguarding against issues like diarrhea.

4000 years ago, Egyptians documented medical therapies, using pieces of copper on battle wounds. Taking shavings from their bronze swords whenever they were injured - they found it would reduce the chance of infection

Ancient Indians had intuitive wisdom about copper. Because of this, they threw copper coins into rivers before drinking the river’s water - to make the water safe for drinking!

Evidently, even before the knowledge of viruses, germs, or bacteria emerged, the intuitive wisdom of ancient cultures recognized copper's disinfectant potential for healing. This ancient insight holds significant promise for modern “medicine” - which has absolutely no regard for intuitive wisdom.

Copper Is Known Today For “Virus Killing” Powers

The New England Journal of Medicine published an article proving Coronavirus will survive only 4 hours on a copper surface - whereas on paper and plastic and and steel surfaces it will survive for 24-72 hours.

Copper has antiviral, antibacterial & antimicrobial properties. Multiple studies have shown copper kills over 99.9% of bacteria such as E. coli within 1-2 hours of contact - so you can use copper as a disinfectant! In fact, hospitals now coat beds with copper because any microbe that lands on copper surface is likely to be killed quickly!

Copper also has antioxidant, anti-carcinogenic and anti-inflammatory properties - helping neutralize toxins.

Copper Has Touted As “Fountain of Youth”

Copper deficiency can result in gray hair, skin wrinkles, crow’s feet, varicose veins and saggy skin. Because of this, copper has been touted as a “Fountain of Youth” for its ability to improve the elastic fiber in skin, increase skin flexibility, and act as an anti-wrinkle treatment. 

People have claimed it can return gray hair back to its natural color.

Copper is a trace mineral essential for healthy body functions & making energy. Helping your body make red blood cells, keeping your nerve cells & immune system healthy.

Copper Is Known For 20+ Health Benefits!

Alkalizing Effect: Copper naturally alkalizes water. The electromagnetic energy of copper water is ionic - scientifically proven to balance the body's pH levels. Maintaining a slightly alkaline environment may have health benefits, such as preventing diseases.

Helps weight loss: Copper water aids in the functioning of your digestive system, as well as breaking down fat accumulated in the body. Researchers from California University have stated that copper helps in burning fat. Drinking water from a copper vessel first thing in the morning can help you lose weight.

Helps regulate thyroid: Proper functioning of thyroid glands requires a balanced copper intake. According to Balchem, copper energizes the thyroid gland and avoids excessive thyroid excretion in the blood.

Helps Western Diet: The Western diet is often low in copper, and copper deficiency can lead to adverse effects like elevated cholesterol, blood pressure, homocysteine, uric acid levels, impaired glucose tolerance, thrombosis, and oxidative damage. Drinking copper water prevents copper deficiency.

Helps arthritis and inflamed joints: Drinking copper-enriched water helps to soothe arthritis and other joint inflammations. According to research conducted by PubMed, copper helps to slow down aging by keeping the joints healthy, thus preventing stiffness of joints. This anti-inflammatory characteristic of copper can relieve pain caused by inflamed joints.

Helps joint health: Copper plays a significant role in collagen synthesis, the protein responsible for providing structure and strength to connective tissues in the human body - including skin, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels. Studies show adequate copper levels support the production of strong and resilient collagen fibers, promoting skin elasticity, wound healing, and the structural integrity of blood vessels and joints.

Helps skin health: Copper water promotes the formation of melanin, the pigment that gives color to your skin, hair, and eyes. According to PudMed, copper stops hair from graying. Because of its cell-producing characteristics, copper water aids in skin regeneration & health.

Helps heart health: Copper supplementation has been shown to improve ventricular function and quality of life in elderly patients, with chronic heart failure and ischemic heart disease. A study using NHANES data found an inverse correlation between copper intake and the risk of myocardial infarction (heart attack) in US adults. Copper can help against cardiovascular diseases, leading to a healthy heart.

Helps eliminate Anaemia: Iron absorption in the body can be increased naturally when you drink Copper water. According to WebMD, our body needs copper to make hemoglobin, which helps transport oxygen throughout the body. Usually, we don't get enough copper due to a Western diet, leading to scarce absorption of iron & resulting in anemia. With the increase of copper intake, iron absorption will increase helping in eliminating anemia.

Helps boost immunity: Drinking copper water helps in the absorption of nutrients and the removal of toxic materials from the body. Copper has antiviral, antibacterial & antimicrobial properties. Studies have shown copper kills over 99.9% of bacteria (such as E. coli) within 1-2 hours of contact. Drinking copper water boosts our immunity.

Helps fight microbial infections: Copper has been shown in laboratory studies to have antimicrobial properties, including an ability to eliminate harmful bacteria - aiding the battle against infection. *A recent research published in the Journal of Health states, water contaminated with dangerous bacteria like Salmonella stored in the copper bottle for 16 hours is completely eliminated. Even when not actively fighting microbes, copper can physically block harmful ions from passing through cell walls.

Helps brain function: Copper has been proven to facilitate the connection between neurons. Studies also show copper creates neurotransmitters (dopamine, adrenaline, etc). This means, copper contributes to overall mental well-being, cognitive performance, emotional balance, and appropriate responses to stress.

Helps digestion: Copper has antibacterial properties which can help in killing harmful bacteria in your stomach, improving digestion. As per Hindustan Times, drinking water stored in a copper vessel helps in detoxification of the body. Food particles break down in copper water, aiding digestion.
