14 Healing Properties of Water Stored in Copper Vessel

During my childhood days I remember my mother storing water in a copper vessel and asking us to drink it after 7-8 hours, she would claim that water when stored in a copper vessel was extremely healthy for the mind and body. Now when I see these ancient customs reemerging, I look back and think, I should have taken my mom’s advice seriously.

Ayurvedic texts recommend drinking water stored in copper, because copper is believed to have anti-microbial, antioxidant, anti-carcinogenic and anti-inflammatory properties.

[Allegedly, copper has the highest vibration of all metals and it is the closest to Love’s vibration].

Its an essential mineral for our body and medical studies have proved the benefits of drinking water stored in copper jugs.

According to a 2012 study, storing contamined water in copper pots for up to 16 hours at room temperature considerably reduced the presence of harmful microbes, so much that the researchers inferred that “copper holds promise as a point-of-use solution for microbial purification of drinking-water, especially in developing countries.”

Another study found that copper surfaces killed 97% of hospital ICU bacteria that can cause infections, resulting in 40% decrease in the infection rates.

Sadhguru, an Indian yogi, mystic, philanthropist, said, “If you keep water in a copper vessel, preferably overnight or at least for four hours, the water acquires a certain quality from the copper which is very good for your liver in particular and your health and energy in general.”

Ayurveda texts suggests that water stored in a copper vessel has the ability to balance all the three doshas in your body (vata, kapha and pitta). Doshas is a Sanskrit word meaning ‘mind-body constitution’ and all three doshas are present in every cell, tissue, and organ – for movement, metabolism, and fluidity – are essential components of our life.
