Many metals including copper and silver have antimicrobial effects. These properties of copper and silver have been made use of for hundreds of years (Wiki). Modern research has shown that copper has useful antibacterial and antiviral effects. Even dry copper surfaces such as door handles can destroy even antibiotic-resistant bacteria or "super-germs" such as MRSA. (Southampton).

Copper is an essential micronutrient that is important in many aspects of the physiology. Whole grains, beans and lentils, nuts and seeds, potatoes, avocados, and raisins are good sources of copper and deficiencies are rare in developed countries. Although metallic copper is insoluble it is said that leaching of minute quantities from copper water pipes does contribute to dietary requirements. Use of copper cups may also contribute in this way.

Preparing the cup for use


Rinse the cup before first use. Copper tarnishes in moist conditions. This probably reduces the speed with which it has its beneficial effect on water. Therefore, removing the tarnish from time to time is recommended. The tarnish may be removed by weak acid such as lemon juice and/or by scouring.

Usage tips


Fill the cup with cold water in the evening and leave it overnight. First thing in the morning after brushing the teeth and scraping the tongue sip the water slowly.
