Our ancient medicine Ayurveda strongly recommends drinking water stored in copper vessels daily for boosting immune system and for balancing all the three doshas – vata, kapha and pitta. Ayurvedic practitioners refer water stored in copper vessels as ‘Tamra Jal’ and this copperized liquid serves as a natural oxidant.
Copper is an essential nutrient for the body. Together with iron, it enables the body to form red blood cells. It helps maintain healthy bones, blood vessels, nerves, and immune function, and it contributes to iron absorption. Sufficient copper in the diet may help prevent cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis, too.
Copper has properties that help in killing harmful bacteria and reduce inflammation within the stomach, making it a great remedy for ulcers, acidity, gas, indigestion and infections. Healthy gut leads to healthy skin body and mind.

Caution: According to ayurveda, a copper bottle kept filled with water overnight (8 hr) is a enough time for a copper charge water. Long-term exposure to high doses of copper may cause copper toxicity, which is characterized by nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and diarrhea.
**Any kind of sour things should not be kept in a copper vessel. Actually, the acid found in lemon reacts with copper. Which can be harmful for your health. Drinking lemonade in a copper vessel can cause problems in your stomach gas, stomach pain, vomiting.**
The correct way to drink water is to sit down with a glass of water, and drink it sip by sip. One should consume at least 2-3 litres of water in a day. Drinking room temperature water over very cold water should be preferred.
