Copper Cup

Traditional Copper CupA Real Ayurvedic Classic


In any traditional Indian household you may find copper drinking cups and also water stored in a copper vessel. According to Ayurvedic principles, there are numerous health benefits to storing water and drinking water in this way. First, water stored in a copper vessel never becomes stale and the copper gently leeches all of its positive qualities into the water, as it is stored.

Fill the cup with water in the evening, leave it to stand overnight, and drink the water the next morning. In Ayurveda this water is particularly highly regarded because it is said to have a purifying effect on the whole physiology, as well as having a balancing influence on Pitta dosha. From a scientific point of view, the water has absorbed pure copper, which in this form is an essential mineral for the body.

Preparation for use


This cup is made of pure copper, which has a tendency to darken due to natural oxidisation. It is recommended that you clean the inside of the cup before first use. This can best be done by squeezing the juice of a whole lemon into the cup and adding one tablespoon of salt. Fill it with warm water and allow it to stand until the oxidation is gone. Rubbing the surface with a brush or scourer will speed up the process. The exterior can be cleaned by rubbing the surface with half a lemon dipped in salt or a scourer. Wash the cup in water before daily use and use the lemon and salt method to remove discolouration as required.

How to use


Fill the cup with cold water in the evening and leave it overnight. Sip the water slowly after brushing the teeth first thing in the morning.

Benefits


Ayurveda says that use of a copper cup in this way has a purifying effect on the whole physiology.

Copper cupsCopper Drinking Vessel


Copper is naturally self-sterilizing and has a toxic effect on pathogens that come in contact with it. It destroys even antibiotic-resistant bacteria or "super-germs" such as MRSA.

Store potable water in a copper vessel overnight and drink it the next morning. It negates infection-causing bacteria and also aids in digestion, healthy skin and hair, healing injuries, and aids sensory info flow via the nervous system.

Ayurveda has a certain appreciation for copper. It is an important metal in the Ayurvedic conception of the human constitution. Ayurveda uses copper for multiple purposes, including the storage of potable water, to refine minerals for supplementation, and to create yantras for focused worshipping.

 

"Germs are destroyed when they come in contact with copper, silver, and a handful of other similar metals"

 

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. In the past and present, infectious diseases spread through potable water, causing a major threat to public health. So exposing drinking water to copper before consuming it is a simple and effective way to minimize exposure to such infectious diseases.

Storing water in a copper vessel is a simple and efficient means of providing trace copper on a regular basis. These trace deposits of copper are picked up naturally by the water and only in amounts that equal a fraction of a person’s daily recommended intake.

Copper Drinking VesselsCopper And The Human Body


But copper is also an important trace mineral that plays a vital role throughout out bodily system. Modern science recognizes copper’s important role in a diverse range of bodily functions: It helps the sensory information flow through the nervous system. It is a powerful anti-inflammatory and helps us recover from physical injuries. It helps keep our skin and hair healthy and strong. It aids in digestion and helps us efficiently process food, resulting in less fat storage. So Ayurveda recommends it for skin conditions, gastritis, or anemia, and also might consider poor hair or skin as a sign of copper deficiency.

Storing Water In A Copper Vessel


There is nothing complicated about incorporating a copper drinking vessel into your life. Large copper vases have been traditionally used in India to store quantities of potable water for groups or families, which is then poured into smaller containers for meals and individual use. Some people use a simple copper cup or a kalash, a miniature vase.

 

"A simple practice for using a copper container for your drinking water is to fill your copper container at night before sleeping and drink the water the following morning."

 

Modern-day copper containers diverge from the traditional appearance of the kalash and are built in a cylindrical shape. They are made either with a single piece of copper or with two pieces that form a metal seam, and the mouths are threaded with screw-top lids, sometimes accompanied by a seal to prevent them from leaking.

Many people who first worry that the water might taste “metallic” are soon impressed by the crisp and clean taste that copper seems to impart to the water it holds. 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 many examples where modern science is slowly catching up to ancient wisdom. So try using a copper vessel regularly for your drinking water, and you may find it to your liking.

Water purification by copper


April 2005. Recent research (Reed & Tandon, Northumbria University) has shown that when water is stored in brass vessels for 48 hours the bacteria in the water are killed by the copper leaching into the water. The bacteria only die after 1-2 days. The levels of copper are safe and well below maximum recommended levels.
