What do you know about Copper Cups? Have you ever heard of copper drinking vessels like Copper cups and pitchers and the amazing benefits of their use? For thousands of years, humanity has been using these vessels for the many health benefits they provide. Copper has many health benefits. Copper kills bacteria and it makes the water taste better. It also helps with water stagnation as well.
Copper decreases your risk of cancer because copper has antioxidants that fight off free radicals. Antioxidants help neutralize these free radicals, preventing them from causing damage to the body. In turn, copper slows the effects of aging and the degradation of Telomeres. A part of the cell replication mechanisms in our DNA. Over time and with age, they degrade.
Telomere: a region of repetitive DNA sequences at the end of a chromosome. Telomeres protect the ends of chromosomes from becoming frayed or tangled. Each time a cell divides, the telomeres become slightly shorter. Eventually, they become so short that the cell can no longer divide successfully, and the cell dies. The ancients knew something amazing and I want to share this information with you. REMEMBER too much copper is bad for you, like most things in life. That’s why I stress water only.
Generally, yes. According to experts, copper toxicity is possible, but not common.
But beware! You have an increased risk of having too much copper in your system IF…
You suffer from Wilson’s disease, an inherited disorder that causes copper to accumulate in your liver, brain, and other vital organs — but Wilson’s disease is rare.
You drink water from corroded copper pipes, cook acidic foods in copper pots and pans, or somehow ingest powder, copper which can be found in occupational or industrial settings.
You drink liquids other than water from a copper mug. When you store liquids in a copper vessel, traces of copper leach into the liquid. The amount of copper that leaches depends on the acidity of the liquid. The more acid the liquid, the more leaching occurs.
Like a bad trip, acid is the culprit.
Liquids with a pH < 6.0 (acid) such as alcohol, fruit juices, and vinegar increase copper leaching. In fact, the FDA prohibits food with a pH less than 6.0 to come into direct contact with copper and copper alloys (such as brass). I will list a few great articles to expound on the subject so you can research for yourselves. My personal testimony after 5 years of water consumption from my copper cup. Is that water never tasted so good?
I’m telling you my water is delicious. Notice I specifically said water. That’s because the PH /acidity levels in common beverages can cause excess leeching and too much lead intake can be harmful. So water is the key to the lock.
The benefits for me outweigh the risks. I practice and take heed to all the cautions about copper toxicity I have been informed of. Why? Because copper improves digestion copper has helped me with my thyroid issues (hyperthyroidism) and the balance of my thyroid levels. Copper has even boosted my energy levels. A cup of water at room temp or chilled overnight.
Is incredible to wake up to in the morning. It helps me to assert my will and intentions for the day. I feel energized. That’s why I am sharing this age-old secret with you. Research it for yourselves. That will always be the prescription I give to you.
If you don’t know you will be amazed when you confirm my findings. I have only scratched the surface of this amazing subject.
