Water can be made healthier! Here's how!
Water is the most essential element to sustain life on this planet. Seventy percent of the human body is made up of water. But as much as water is essential, storing water is as crucial.
In ancient times, our ancestors and even our grandmothers followed the practice of storing water in containers made of Copper. Their aim was probably to safeguard drinking water, but there's more to the story.
Copper makes water healthier?
Now, we only believe in artificial purification with UV filters and RO purifiers. However, it requires regular maintenance and an 80%-90% purifying limitation, no matter what the advertisement says to you. The ancient and yet effective practice of storing water in copper utensils is how our ancestors believed in purification. This is with reference to ancient Ayurvedic texts supported by several scientific studies.
Storing water in a copper vessel creates a natural purification which kills 99% of all the microorganisms, moulds, fungi, algae and bacteria present that could be harmful.
Copper is not 'just' a metal
Water stored in a copper vessel, preferably overnight or at least for four hours, gains minerals from the metal and has profound health benefits.
Copper is an essential trace mineral that is vital to human health. It has antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-carcinogenic and anti-inflammatory properties. It also helps neutralize toxins. Unlike some nutritional elements, the body cannot synthesize Copper, so you need to get it from dietary sources or well, Copper utensils!
Maintenance is key
Every investment (like a copper utensil) requires maintenance.
- Polish Copper every 8 months.
Tarnish is a layer of corrosion that occurs on metals which is a completely normal reaction that happens over time due to exposure to water and air. Polishing will keep the tarnish at bay. You can polish at home using Lemon Juice with Baking Soda or Vinegar.
- Avoid the Dishwasher
Tara Steffen, a marketing manager at an Australian copper-cookware manufacturing company, warns against putting Copper in the dishwasher or picking up a stronger cleaner that contains bleach. It deteriorates the metal quality and finishing.
- Dry your utensils well
Clean your Copper utensils with warm water and soap. Make sure to dry them thoroughly before putting them back on the shelf as any sort of residual moisture may lead to watermarks and faster tarnishing.
