Do you ever give any thought to copper? Perhaps the thought extends to placing the copper top alkaline batteries in the freezer for longer storage. Or the after thought of putting pennies in your change jar? Did you know pennies aren’t even made of copper anymore; they are primarily made of zinc. It’s ok most people don’t give 2 cent about copper; but it’s very important to our health.
Copper tends to get very little thought and no shine; but it’s an essential nutrient for the human body. Copper combined with iron in our bodies enable us to create red blood cells. Red blood cells bring oxygen to our tissues. It also benefits our cognitive skills, Ensures our thyroid gland functions, and reduces free radical damage in the body, levels of bad cholesterol.
If you care to explore the benefits of copper at a higher frequency; copper is known to stimulate the flow of energy and act as a conductor, boosting energies. Copper is considered to have electromagnetic energy which is called Prana Shakti. Copper helps ground and opens the root and sacral/svadisthana chakras. The sacral chakra color is orange, and it is located in the lower abdomen.
We need Copper, however our bodies does not synthesize it. I’ll save you the google…it means our bodies cannot make it; and we also cannot store a lot of it. We need to make sure we eat cell foods that are rich in copper; and are mindful to eat them daily.
- Here are some signs to look for if considering if you have enough copper in your life:Disclaimer– this is not medical advice; just a heads up for you to pay attention when your body is talking to you, as they say “ do your own research”.
- joint pain
- low energy levels
- inability to focus
Here are a few cells foods to consider including in your diet that can help copper correct deficiency:
- seeds/cashew nuts/ chia seeds
- leafy greens- turnip greens, collard greens, spinach, kale.
Of course all things must be done in moderation, do what is best for your needs. To over consume Copper could also lead to health issues. Be mindful of what you need as an individual, we are not one size fits all.
Another option to consider that will increase your Copper intact; is storing water in a Copper container overnight 8-16hours. Water stored in a copper container called Tamra Jal. Drinking the copper infusion water has the benefit of charging and detoxing the body. Consuming the water is great for balancing the dosha and helping correct the system. In Ayuverda health practices this helps balance the 3 dosha; Kapha, Vata, and Pitta.
In addition to copper’s many benefits and superpowers it is also antimicrobial. When water is copper infused it purifies the water, and can reduce any microbe 🦠 floating in the water. The water Ph is alkaline! What is NOT to love about this.lol.
To get the best benefits of this positively charged water it’s suggested to drink 1 cup at room temperature first of the morning prior to eating and starting your day. This is an important step of a well founded Dinacharya; daily routine. The copper alkaline water balances all of the dosha helping the body to properly function in harmony.
