The ancient ayurvedic practice of storing water in a copper vessel for purification and health has been revered for thousands of years. Long before modern methods of water purification came about, people were using copper as a way to cleanse our earth’s greatest life-giving resource. They would store it overnight in large containers to be used the next day.

The Science Behind Copper
The scientific community has become fascinated by the claims of copper’s power and took it upon themselves to test the theories that were understood by those Eastern ancestors. Unsurprisingly, studies have shown that water stored in copper containers is not only free from bacteria but also has a raised pH level, leaving it naturally more alkaline which has many health benefits.
Copper and Modern Medicine
Copper may be a solution to the growing, deadly problem of hospital acquired infections and the rising incidence of superbugs. Due to copper’s power to kill some of the most infectious bacteria, many hospitals are equipping their wards and theatres with copper alloy surfaces, bed rails, tables and door knobs.
Copper ions dissolve in water in small amounts. This is known as the Oligodynamic Effect and in essence, it results in the water having the potency to destroy harmful microbes, fungi, bacteria and viruses. This unique property of copper was recognized by the Vedic Indians. It was incorporated into a daily practice based on the teachings of Ayurveda, and its incredible properties are fast becoming well-known and extensively used in the modern day world.
