You’ve seen it by now. It’s everywhere. Copper is a trend that has swept the world. And why not? It’s beautiful to look at. But did you know that copper also can be beneficial to your health?
Using a copper vessel to store and drink water has been enjoyed holistically in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries and recently has been gaining traction in the modern world. While some are hopping on the bandwagon because copper is so damn aesthetically pleasing, studies have shown that copper actually has numerous health benefits (a win-win!).
Copper has anti-bacterial properties and is an effective anti-oxidant with such health benefits as immunity improvement, age prevention, toxin and free radical elimination, and brain stimulation. Since copper cannot be produced within the body, it needs to be provided by an external source, and that’s where Copper H2O comes in.
After doing a bit of research of my own, I came across all kinds of information boasting the positive effects drinking from a copper vessel can have and was honestly amazed.
Below is a compiled list of nine ways copper can benefit your health. Such health benefits may include but are not limited to the following:
Supports weight loss and improves digestion
by breaking down fat and ensuring your stomach has what it need to work hard to digest food and move it more efficiently through the digestive system. It also helps detox the liver and kidneys. It’s recommended that you drink a large glass of water that has been stored in a copper vessel early in the morning on an empty stomach.
Maintains cardiovascular health
as studies have shown that copper has been found to help regulate blood pressure, heart rate and lowers one’s cholesterol and triglyceride levels, minimizing the risk of heart disease.
Beats arthritis, inflamed joints, and anaemia
with its anti-inflammatory properties and ability to absorb iron into the body.
Kills bacteria and helps build a strong immune system
as copper is oligodynamic, which is the sterilizing effect metal has on bacteria, as well as has antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory properties.
Stimulates the brain
by aiding in the synthesis of materials that are necessary for the production of the myelin sheaths, which cover neutrons and act as a conductive agent, allowing the brain to transmit impulses known as synapses (the main activity that allows a brain to function).
Regulates the thyroid gland
since copper is one of the most important trace minerals it needs to function optimally.
Helps with the production of melanin and new skin cells
as it’s the main component in the production of melanin (the pigment that gives our eyes, hair, and skin colour) and new skin cells as well as replenishes the top most layers of the skin.
with its anti-oxidant and cell forming properties, copper can actually help prevent and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
although according to studies, it’s still not known what the link is exactly between copper and cancer prevention, but some studies have shown that complexes have a considerable anti-cancer effect such as strong antioxidant properties that help fight off free radicals and nullify their effect, one of the main reasons for cancer development.
Each bottle from Copper H2O is handmade, comprised of 100% pure hammered copper. The hammering is done to increase surface area that touches the water, thus enhancing the health benefits and ensuring you get everything you need to get out of your copper water bottle.
Of course with anything, don’t overdo it. In doing my research, I found that according to the FDA, about 12mg per day of copper intake is plenty enough for the body to maintain good health, which works out to be roughly two to three bottles per day.
So whether you’re going for a workout, hanging at home, or running errands around the city, you’ll feel great knowing that Copper H2O’s copper water bottle is working just as hard as you are. And who doesn’t love functional art?
