This fair trade, 100% pure copper 12oz cup from Tara Handicraft is handcrafted in India and features a beautifully hammered exterior. As part of a daily routine, practitioners of Ayurveda commonly store water overnight in a pure copper vessel and drink it upon waking, which washes the GI tract, flushes the kidneys, and stimulates peristalsis. In Western medicine, copper is recognized as an essential trace mineral with antimicrobial and antioxidant properties that helps support gut health, improve immunity, increase the body’s absorption of iron, stimulate the formation of collagen, prevent aging, and eliminate toxins.
We recommend leaving water in your copper vessel over night to drink in the morning before consuming any other food or beverages. As with all complementary therapies, please consult your primary care physician before using this product. These items are not recommended for those with a copper allergy.
