What are the Benefits of Copper?

Copper is a natural purifier. People have been using it for thousands of years to store water. As this natural purifier has the ability to kill all microorganisms, molds, fungi, algae and bacteria, present in water that could be harmful to the body. Copper is vital to human health due to its occurrence as an essential trace mineral. It has antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-carcinogenic and anti-inflammatory properties, and may also help to neutralise toxins found within the body.

Copper and Ayurveda

According to Ayurveda, drinking water stored in copper first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach, helps balance the three doshas (kapha, pitta, vata). This will also ensure that the various metabolic processes are working effectively. And that organs are functioning to their best capacity.

Tongue Scraping for Detoxing

After noting all the above, it was only natural that we selected copper as the material of choice for our Ayurvedic Tongue Cleaners. Like copper, the sacred practice of tongue scraping is indeed purifying and consequently detoxifying. So, this is a great way to eliminate anything that may be harmful to the digestive system. Scrape your tongue every morning to remove ‘ama’. It is the coating of mucus on your tongue. A fantastic way of bringing purity into your everyday life, using our copper Tongue Cleaner may also help in the following ways:

  1. Promotes a healthy tongue and therefore a happy gut!
  2. Removes toxins and plaque build-up from the mouth
  3. Eliminates bad breath
  4. Heightens taste bud sensitivity
  5. It improves skin and stops you from ingesting toxins
