I have always been a strong advocate for clean oceans supported by a healthy living lifestyle, therefore, I am committed to making smart choices for my body that are also safe and beneficial for the environment. One of the simplest and easiest ways I do this is to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water, but not the kind that comes in a plastic bottle. Personally, I’m a big fan of good old fashioned tap water, but some may say that does not always taste fresh and clean and may not be pure. Well, what if I told you there is a cost effective and simple way to purify tap water and make it taste even better? I know there are lots of portable receptacle choices out there for toting water, but I can attest that the benefits of drinking water from a copper water bottle are by far the best and here’s why.
When you store water in a copper water bottle, the water naturally and safely absorbs very small amounts of copper that helps neutralize toxins as it ionizes and balances the pH of water to become natural alkaline water. In addition, according to Ayurvedic principles, water stored in a copper vessel has the ability to balance all the three doshas in your body, (vata, kapha and pitta) and it does so by positively charging the water. This also ensures proper functioning of different organs and several metabolic processes. For best results, keep 2-3 glasses of water in a copper vessel overnight, and drink it in the morning. I can personally vouch for the improved taste. The water is crisp and refreshing and has a lighter feel to it, much like water from a mineral spring.
And there’s more. Studies have shown that copper is anti-bacterial, acts as an effective anti-oxidant, improves immunity, supports good health, prevents aging, eliminates toxins and free radicals, and stimulates the brain. Because copper is naturally anti-bacterial, a copper bottle is naturally self-sterilizing and therefore does not require as much cleaning as other water bottles. However, not all copper water bottles are the same. When purchasing a copper water bottle, be sure to look for one that is made of 100% pure high-grade food-safe copper that does not contain any metals, alloys or lining. My favorite is from Copper H2O that you can purchase here. I’ve been using mine for the past few months and I can definitely see an improvement in my energy, skin tone and overall well-being, plus the hammered effect on the bottle is unique and stylish.
