6 Awesome benefits of drinking water from a copper utensil

Copper is a soft malleable material which is a brilliant conductor of heat and electricity. It was first used by humans somewhere around the 8,000 BC and was the first metal to be cast in any shape in 4,000 BC. It is found in humans mainly in the bones, liver and muscles.

Ancient medicine texts from India and other parts of the world say that copper is perhaps the most beneficial metal to human health. The Ayurveda or the ancient Indian medicine science advocates drinking water stored in copper pots for centuries in order to reap the benefits of copper.

Ayurveda says that you should store water in a copper vessel for 8 hours minimum, before consuming it. The water leeches the properties from copper and becomes highly healthy for us to consume and can be stored for long periods of time. Here are 6 reasons why you should drink water from a copper vessel.

1 Good for Brain

Our brains usually work by sending message to different parts of the body, known as impulses from one neuron to another, using an area known as the synapse. The neurons used for doing this transport work are stored under a sheath known as myelin sheath, which is actually a conductive layer which aids in the flow of impulses and regulates the to and fro journey of messages from brain. Copper helps in formation of phospholipids that in turn are used in formation of this myelin sheath. It also prevents seizures and stimulates the brain.
