Copper drink-ware is all the rage right now and people are going all crazy over the shiny metal. Copper cups, copper water bottles, copper pitchers, copper tumblers– you name it and you have it. But given to the “health” revolution, people are going all crazy for copper treated water. There is a long list of health benefits which are associated with the use of pure copper vessels for storing and drinking water.

When water is stored in a copper vessel it takes up the positive charge of the metals along with all the positive properties of the metal as well. Copper has been recognized for its anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties which may help in the faster recovery of wounds. It also makes for a crucial element of our diet and body as it helps in the formation of new cells and boosts immunity.

A few things you need to keep in mind in order to reap the most benefits from a copper utensil you must store the water in the copper tumbler or copper pitcher overnight. If the water is stored in the copper vessel for less than four hours, it won’t do much good to your body. Also, in order to get the most of the copper water, you should drink it as soon as you wake up before eating or drinking anything.

Other benefits of drinking in a copper cup are reduced signs of aging, glowing skin, prevention of cancer, regulates thyroid, stimulates the brain, helps the body with the proper absorption of iron and thus prevents anemia. And to make it even better, let me tell you that these benefits are not just mere sayings, there is scientific evidence to prove these facts.

In another scientific study, scientists measured the number of microbes in a sample of water and then the water was then transferred to a pure copper container. After sixteen hours, the water was checked again and it was revealed that the level of harmful microbes was reduced greatly. The only reason for the fall in the level of microbes was found to be the copper vessel used for storing the water.
