Water stored in copper vessels can play a significant role in cleansing our system of various toxins.

“Because water has memory, we are very concerned with how we store it. If you keep water in a copper vessel, preferably overnight or at least for four hours, the water acquires a certain quality from the copper which is very good for your liver in particular and your health and energy in general.”Sadhguru

Copper is an antimicrobial. It kills bacteria and viruses, sometimes within minutes. Research Studies
