UNC Amsterdam Ayurvedic Mangal Jug Copper & Mango Wood
In Ayurveda, a traditional system of medicine with Indian roots, copper has been used for hundreds, to thousands of years. It is said that water stored in a copper vessel positively charges the water, giving it the ability to balance all 3 doshas in your body – vata, kapha & pitta. In Ayurveda, a copper vessel is known as
‘tamara jal’ and its learnings teach us that the water you store in it should be in there for at least 8 hours, so the copper in the vessel can gently leach into the water. It prevents the water from going stale, meaning it can be stored for long periods of time. The ancient Indians filled a copper cup with cold water at bedtime and drank it first thing in the morning. Also Ancient Egyptians used copper for the same benefit.
Use: Though the word of advice is not to overdo the use of drinking water from a copper vessel 2 or 3 cups a day is recommended. This benefits the health, from boosting the heart health and beating anemia to fighting inflammations, aiding weight loss and promoting healthy skin. It’s also said to stimulate your brain, slow down aging and help the digestive system perform better.
However, we strongly advice not to drink anything other than cold water from our Mangal Jug or Cup, to be able to enjoy this beautiful wonder of nature.
