Ayurveda and Alkaline Water

Have you heard about the latest health and wellness trend? According to Ayurvedic medicine, drinking from a copper water vessel can have incredible health benefits. Water stored in a copper vessel is known as “tamra jal” and can help balance the body’s doshas (vata, kapha, and pitta), make your water naturally alkaline, and support good health and wellness in a ton of other ways!

A few months ago, I bought a handmade copper water bottle from Copper H2O. My bottle is a piece of art and I am borderline obsessed with it! Something about the amazing shine of the copper and its aesthetic appeal makes me so eager to drink out of it often throughout the day, which is great for keeping me hydrated!

I have since learned that copper has a ton of great properties which make it great for water bottles. Studies have shown that copper is anti-bacterial and anti-oxidizing, and it’s also great for the immune system and keeping the brain stimulated!

It also feels so good to be avoiding the use of plastic bottles. Did you know that studies have shown that on average only 1 in 5 plastic bottles are recycled, and plastic bottles take between 400 and 1000 years to decompose? It also takes three times as much water to produce a plastic bottle as it does to fill it!

Try using a copper water bottle – you’ll love it!
