Copper Water: How it Changes Water and its Benefits


                   How Copper Changes the Nature of Water

Copper is a metal that slowly reacts with water. There is no instant reaction but slow reaction. Copper slowly dissolves in water forming a mild alkali which raises the pH slightly. You just have to put water in a copper jug and leave it for 8 to 9 hours. The general practice is to store the water in copper ware overnight and drink on empty stomach in the morning.

When you store water for just 3 hours in copper jugs it is enough for killing the harmful bacteria. The ionizing property of copper is the reason for creating a substrate which kills the bacteria. The water is also beneficial for nervous and skeletal issues in the body. Ayurveda also mentions that copper has electromagnetic properties which enhance the prana Shakti in the body. The water stored in the copper vessel overnight is called Tamara jal by Ayurveda which literally means copper water viz. “Tamara” – Copper and “Jal” – Water.
Even if you are storing the water in a copper vessel for one or two days the water remains fresh. This is due to the fact that bacterial growth in copper vessels is not possible due to anti-pathogen nature of the metal.
