Copper Water Jug For Ayurvedic Healing (1.5 Litre) | 100% Pure Copper Handcrafted Hammered Pitcher Premium Water Dispenser Gopala Ayurveda Copper Water Jug is hand-crafted at the base of the Himalaya in the valley of Uttar Pradesh in India. It bears a beautiful shape and is dimpled throughout to maximize surface area and ionization of the water it contains. Though many copper artifacts will often include sizable amounts of iron and tin, Gopala products are made of the finest quality copper and are ensured to be 99.99% pure copper. This is important detail as purity guarantees efficacy. Copper has general purifying properties, and is used to clarify electrolyte imbalances and resulting toxin retention problems. Copper helps to restore balance to the retention and flow of water within the body, and consequently helps in clearing up an excess build-up of toxins. Copper is well known for its incredible anti-microbial properties. In fact, recent studies have shown that storing water in a copper vessel will dramatically decrease the risk of bacterial contamination. Copper water vessels have been used for centuries in India in order to help prevent water-borne diseases. According to Ayurveda water stored in a copper vessel has the ability to balance all the three doshas in your body, (vata, kapha and pitta) and it does so by positively charging the water. The water stored in a copper vessel is known as ‘tamara jal’ and is supposed to be consumed after storing the water in a copper vessel for at least six to eight hours.
