5 Reasons for Drinking Tamara Water

When I saw my father using a copper pot for storing water, which he drinks early in the morning I did not know why. I asked him and he told me that it was good for the body. I was not convinced then, but now after researching a bit on the topic I have also started doing the same. Today we will try and understand five benefits of drinking water stored in a copper vessel which is known as “Tamara Jal” in Ayurveda.
Ayurvedic texts tell about the magical properties of water stored in copper ware. It is an essential element to keep the balance of the three doshas in the human body which are Kapha, Vata and Pitta. The metal also has an electromagnetic property which is known as prana Shakti in Ayurveda. Here are some benefits of copper water which has been acknowledged by modern medical science.
  • Anti-Microbial Property – Water stored in a copper vessel overnight kills all the microbes. Copper slowly dissolves in water thereby increasing the pH slightly, and this makes the water unfit for microbial growth. Copper can also be used in hospitals for decreasing the growth of microbial as revealed by a research bin University of South Carolina.  
  • Acts as a brain stimulant – The neurons which are responsible for our superior brain are protected by a sheath known as myelin sheath. This sheath helps to transmit signals from brain to other parts of body. Copper induces the growth of these myelin sheaths, which makes our brain work with more efficiency. 
  • Copper for weight Loss – Copper has the property of synthesizing the fat cells and breaking it into smaller sizes. This helps to synthesize the fat and helps in weight loss.
  • Anti-Ageing – Copper is a natural anti-ageing agent. The metal fights off free-radicals which are the main reason for ageing. It is particularly great for formation of new and healthy skin cells. A secret beauty product indeed.
  • Anti-Inflammatory property – Just drinking Tamara jal can help reduce pain in patients of arthritis. The dissolved metal has anti-inflammatory properties which can also help to heal wounds, cuts and bruises as acknowledged by medical science.
These are enough reasons for drinking water from a copper vessel. You should start it today, but be aware that excessive copper can cause metal poisoning. Drink only 1 Litre of water kept in copper jugs for the best results.
