Ancient texts of Ayurveda, (Ay-yur-veda meaning knowledge of life) from India, speak on the immense benefits of water stored in copper and its’ effect on our body.
Many ancient civilizations used Copper to store water! As per Ayurveda, its prescribed to drink water stored in copper for about 6-8 hours and the ritual is called ‘Ushapaan’. As per Ayurveda water stored in Copper Vessels is called 'Tamra Jal' (Tamra meaning Red and Jal meaning Water in Sanskrit). Ayurveda names three elemental substances, the doshas (called Vata, Pitta and Kapha), and states that a balance of the doshas results in health, while imbalance results in disease. As per Ayurveda, each human possesses a unique combination of the doshas which define the person's temperament and characteristics. Over course of life due to stress we are thrown off balance from the Tridoshic structure unique to us. A holistic approach to life with Ayurvedic remedies can help us increase or decrease the doshas thereby maintaining the natural state unique to each one of us. When we sleep, there are involuntary actions inside our body which heal and repair us from within. Toxins are released ready to be flushed out of our system. There is acid formation in our digestive tract and our body is dehydrated in the process. As per Ayurveda one should store water in a copper vessel and leave it overnight. After a span of 6-8 hours, this water becomes naturally alkaline as trace amount of copper ions get dissolved in the water. The charged copper water, helps to bring balance in the body's pH levels (Acid-Alkaline balance). As per Ayurveda, it is also known to help bring the balance of the Tridosha (Vata, Kapha and Pitta) of the body.
What exactly happens when you store water in a copper vessel? Copper has self-sterilizing properties. Modern science calls this the oligodynamic effect – the inherently toxic effect of certain metals on pathogens. The effect is particularly strong with copper and extends even to some of today’s most resistant bacteria or “super-germs” such as MRSA, which now survive many traditional antibiotic treatments.

Recently, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency registered copper as the only solid surface material to kill bacteria that may pose a threat to human health. Hospital-acquired infections (HAI) are becoming a major health crisis throughout the world. In the United States, 4.5% of hospitalized patients develop hospital-acquired infections (HAIs), resulting in an estimated 100,000 deaths! Many hospitals are taking steps to reduce such infections by equipping their patient rooms and operating rooms with copper alloy surfaces, replacing bed rails, tables, and doorknobs. Such alterations have helped reduced the number of healthcare-acquired infections (HAIs) in patients by more than half (Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology, May 2013). An additional study from University of South Carolina researchers explored the purifying power of copper, finding that “Antimicrobial copper surfaces in intensive care units (ICU) kill 97% of bacteria that can cause hospital acquired infections,” resulting in a 40% reduction in the risk of acquiring an infection. The research was done in a hospital ICU. The research found that the rooms with copper-surfaced objects had less than half the infection incidence than those rooms without copper. antimicrobialcopper.org
Copper is a great brain stimulant- Our brain works by transmitting impulses from one neuron to another through an area known as the synapses. These neurons are covered by a sheath called the myelin sheath that acts like a sort of conductive agent – helping the flow of impulses. How does copper figure here you ask? Well, copper actually helps in the synthesis of phospholipids that are essential for the formation of these myelin sheaths. Thereby, making your brain work much faster and more efficiently.
Apart from that copper is also known to have anti-convulsive properties (prevents seizures).

In addition to that, copper also has bone and immune system strengthening properties, making it the perfect remedy for arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Copper can help fight off cancer. Copper has very strong antioxidant properties that helps fight off free radicals and negate their ill effects – one of the main reasons for the development of cancer. According to the American Cancer Society the exact mechanism of how copper helps prevent the onset of cancer is still not known but some studies have shown that copper complexes have a considerable anti-cancer effect. The list can go on.. here’s a few pointers,
The health benefits of copper include
• Proper growth of the body
• Efficient utilization of iron
• Proper enzymatic reactions,
• Improved health of connective tissues, hair, and eyes
• Increasing energy production
• Regulated heart rhythm
• Balanced thyroid glands
• Quick wound healing
• Increased red blood cell formation
• Reducing cholesterol
The health benefits of copper are crucial for an overall healthy existence, as this mineral enables a normal metabolic process in association with amino acids and vitamins. It cannot be produced by the body and therefore needs to be added from external food sources. It is the third most prevalent mineral in the body and is mostly carried by the blood plasma protein, ceruloplasmin. To enjoy the health benefits, it must be included in the daily diet, as it is used up in daily bodily processes. This simple and beneficial relationship between human health and the basic elements of nature is a good example of Ayurveda at work, and it is one of the many examples where modern science is slowly catching up to ancient wisdom.
