Excess consumption of copper water may lead to some vomiting sensation, abdominal pain, etc.

We spend more on purchasing quality gadgets, we waste more on partying with friends in luxurious hotels, which is unhealthy.
Also, there is a need to spend some amount of our earning on healthy items. Don’t you think so?
There are some fake companies in the market which sells copper water bottles, and copper vessels for cheap amount. Copper bottles and copper vessels are a bit expensive.
I am using the “Prestige” copper water bottle, which is made of pure copper, from the last 2 months, and has a great quality.
For copper vessels, you can buy an “Indian Art Villa Hammered copper water dispenser container pot” which is good in its quality.

How to check your copper bottle or vessel is original or duplicate?
Many shops are selling fake copper products in the market. We can easily find out whether a product is original or duplicate.
Follow these simple tests to check whether it is original or duplicate:
- Magnetic test: Place a magnet near a copper bottle or vessel. Copper is not magnetic, so if your bottle attracts a magnet, it is not a copper.
2. The exposure test – Search for zones of the piece that have turned green. At the point when presented with abundant water or oxygen when incomplete, copper can turn green or dark over spots where it has been unnecessarily dealt with. Those dim spots can enable you to decide whether you are holding a genuine copper piece or not.
3. Sound test: Genuine copper will have a profound and smooth sound, rather than metal, which can be sharp and tinny.
4. Observe the mark: Most of the metal products have marks in it. But copper products will not have any marks. If you find any unique numbers or any marks appearing on products, then it is not a copper.
Now I hope you know the importance of drinking water in copper vessels, So just listen to your elders and drink water that is stored in copper vessels and I hope you will get these amazing benefits too.
