Using copper utensils for storing and drinking water is an ancient tradition. We are trying to keep alive the same tradition with our pure copper thermos bottle. After the invention of stainless steel, the practice of using copper utensils has almost vanished. Recent studies have suggested that when copper water is consumed on a regular basis, it may have amazing health benefits. Copper is an essential trace mineral and is required by the body in order to function properly. Regular consumption of copper treated water helps in maintaining an optimum level of copper in the body while keeping a check on various health conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, arthritis, ensures proper growth, regulates melanin production, stimulates the brain, helps with the absorption of iron and sugar, prevents premature aging, maintains skin pigmentation, hair and eye color and more.
Another great property of copper which people are not aware of is its purifying nature. The metal copper possesses oligodynamic properties which kill the microbes present in the water. When water is stored in a pure copper vessel such as a copper water bottle for 6-8 hours, it kills a lot of microbes making the water suitable for consumption. At the present state when clean drinking water is one of the major concerns all over the world, copper utensils can prove to be one of the best and the most affordable water purifiers available. All you need to do is fill the copper vessel with fresh water and allow it to rest for at least 6 hours before consumption. Water stored in copper utensils stays fresh and cold for a long time.
People who are new to using copper utensils wouldn’t know that as copper vessels age they tend to acquire a natural patina which is inevitable and does not affect the efficacy of the product. If you think that your copper water bottle would keep looking like a new one then you are in for a disappointment. You can keep your copper water bottle looking fairly new by cleaning it with a solution of salt and lemon or salt and vinegar.
