We can easily say that copper drink-ware is one of the hottest trends right now. Well yes, and the shiny metal cups, mugs, and pitchers have been steadily showing up on store shelves and at bars across the world. Well, unfortunately, most people are unaware of the fact that copper cups can provide our bodies with numerous health benefits. And, in fact, there is a long list of all the natural and positive ways it impacts health, and you can gain them simply by drinking out of a copper cup!
Here’s what you need to know – when water is placed into a copper vessel it not only takes on the metal’s positive charge, but also all of the other positive properties inherent within it. Copper is known to scientists and the medical community as having anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, anti-viral, and anti-inflammatory properties which can help in first aid to speed up recovery times and heal wounds. Copper is also a necessary part of our diet and our bodies use it to produce new cells and to thrive. It helps strengthen our immune systems and if you drink water which has sat in copper for several hours it can greatly improve, and heal, parts of your digestive system. Yes, and it’s most beneficial to store water overnight in a copper pitcher or bowl. If the water sits for less than four hours in the copper it may not take on all of the positive qualities and won’t be as good for your health.
This method also slows down the aging process, makes skin glow, fights and prevents cancer, stimulates our brains, regulates our thyroid, reduces the risk of heart disease and hypertension, helps or bodies absorb iron and thus helps prevent anemia. Scientists measured the number of harmful microbes found in the water before it was placed in copper, then again 16 hours later, after it had been placed in copper. They found that the level of harmful microbes was greatly reduced just because of the simple fact that the water was in the copper.
