The Incredible Health Benefits Of Copper
Posted on May 10 2017
I instantly fell in love with the stylish & vintage looking water bottles when I found them on a recent trip to India & bought up a few to bring back home to friends as presents. Then I discovered the incredible health benefits that come from drinking out of a copper vessel & knew that I needed to bring them back to the UK & share with all of you.
We know how important it is to take care of our bodies & how our busy schedules can make that difficult, so we've designed a bottle that you can take with you everywhere. Packed full of health benefits and a great replacement to the chemical filled plastic bottles widely available.
This method has been around for thousands of years and is recommended by health professionals around the world. Our ancestors would use a copper jug, fill it with water and leave it overnight to let the copper minerals seep into the water, infusing it with numerous health benefits. In Ayurvedic medicine, copper vessels are still used to balance the three doshas, Vata, Kapha, and Pitta that determine our personalities, happiness and health.
There have also been endless scientific studies that document the amazing benefits. A few are listed below:
- Aids weight loss
- Antioxidants to slow down ageing
- Contains cancer-fighting properties
- Tackles arthritis and inflamed joints
- Stimulates the brain
- Regulates the thyroid gland
- Counteracts Anaemia
- Balances the 3 doshas
The FDA recommends that we take in at least 12 mg of Copper a day & this is an excellent way of achieving that. Most importantly, you’re helping the environment.
A million plastic water bottles are produced worldwide every minute, destroying oceans, wildlife & our planet. We want to abolish the use of plastic & move to more sustainable alternatives. Our copper water bottles are handcrafted by skilled artisans & will last a lifetime. Hand rinse with warm soapy water.
Be the change you want to see in the world & drink from reusable bottles. We can make a difference.
