Storing water in a copper vessel has long been the norm in India and it is recommended that you leave water in the copper vessel for a minimum of a few hours to reap the benefits. As the water sits in your copper bottle, minuscule copper ions are released into the water. Why is this important? Well, copper is an essential trace mineral that is vital to human health. This mineral has antimicrobial, anti-carcinogenic, and anti-inflammatory properties as well as the ability to neutralize toxins.
Water stored in a copper vessel (which is known as “tamra jal” in Ayurvedic medicine) balances the three doshas in your body (vata, kapha and pitta) by gently infusing the water with the positive health properties of copper. Water stored in a copper vessel will also become natural alkaline water, which helps balance your body’s pH levels. Accordingly, our copper drinking bottles are also natural alkaline water bottles.
Most of the copper utensils and accessories are still handmade, hence it requires skilled artisans to make these utensils. The livelihood of all these artisans depends solely on the earnings from these products With every passing year the number of skilled artisans is dwindling considerably.
Various utensils, accessories and tableware made of copper are in use in kitchens and homes world over for more than a thousand years. The shine and gleam of this metal are slowly fading away due to the intrusion of the modern ways coming into the place like nonstick cookware, stainless steel, and other refined alternatives causing an immense loss to health.
