Copper Water Bottles - Health and Well Being
Drinking water stored in a copper water vessel has long been revered for it's many health benefits by Ayurvedic practitioners. If given proper time to sit in the copper bottle (minimum 6 hrs) the copper is absorbed by the water shifting the water to a more alkaline state. When taken internally the copper element has many health benefits for our bodies and we will highlight a few below. Copper is a heavy metal therefore moderation is suggested. 1 or 2 bottles a day with a week long break every now and then is perfectly fine.
1. Anti-aging - Copper is packed with anti-oxidants. Anti-oxidants have the ability to tame free radicals within the body. The copper assist with the formation of new healthy skin cells that leave your skin looking more vibrant.
2. Tames arthritis and inflammation - Copper has potent anti-inflammatory properties. Aside from this fact it also has bone and immune strengthening properties making it a great candidate for relief from different types of arthritis.
3 Digestive ailments - Here is where I have personally seen the wonders of copper drinking first thing in the morning. Copper stimulates the digestive track and assist in elimination. Copper stimulates peristalsis (the rhythmic contraction and relaxation of the stomach that helps food get digested and move along the digestive tract), kills harmful bacteria and reduces inflammation within the stomach, making it a great remedy for ulcers, indigestion, and infections. Copper also helps to cleanse and detox your stomach, regulate the workings of your liver and kidneys. According to Ayurveda if you want to detox your stomach drink a large cup of copper water first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.
4. Skin health and melanin production - Copper is the main component in melanin production (a pigment that mitigates the color of your hair, eyes, 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, the production of new cells is a boon for smooth, blemish-free and clear skin.
