Drink Water Stored in Silver and Copper Vessels
(especially for empty stomach consumption)

Ayurveda has always suggested drinking water stored in copper (
) and
silver (
) vessels. The water stored in these vessels has the ability to
balance all three doshas in the body and it does by positively charging the
water. Copper has numerous antioxidants and anti-bacterial properties that help
boost the immune system of the body.

It also has anti-cancer properties. Water in the silver vessel has the power to
remove free radicals from the body and gives a cooling effect in the intestines
and smoothens the process of digestion.

Clay pots are porous in nature which helps in cooling water. These pots will not
just give you cool water to drink but, will also provide you with the healing
attributes of the earth. Most significantly, clay pots possess the ability to chill
water in accordance with the climate. This is one quality that no other container
has. They are also pocket-friendly in nature.

2. Alkaline in nature
Since clay is alkaline in nature it helps to maintain the Ph balance in our bodies,
since the human body is known to be acidic in nature. Alkaline clay then reacts
with the acidic water hence creating a proper pH balance. Hence, acidity and
gastronomic pains are relieved.

3. Improves digestion and metabolism
Drinking from an earthen pot can boost metabolism without dangerous
chemicals like BPA (Bisphenol A) which can be found in plastic bottles and
containers. This further helps in keeping testosterone levels balanced, as
opposed to plastic, which in turn brings down body testosterone levels. The
minerals present also help to improve digestion.

4. Treats a bad throat
The water stored in an earthen pot is gentle on the throat. It is an ideal drink for
people suffering from cough or cold. It is the best option for people suffering
from respiratory diseases during the summer since water from the fridge can be
too cold to consume and the water that's been kept outside in plastic bottles is
too warm. The water out of clay pot is perfectly chilled rich in earthy goodness
to quench your thirst.

5. Prevents sun strokes (during summer)
We all know how common sunstrokes are in summer. Well, now you can curb it
easily, just start drinking water from an earthen pot. Since it proves the body
with necessary nutrients and vitamins to maintain body glucose and prevents
us from heat strokes.
