Does storing water in a copper bottle for a long time results in excessive copper
Let me assure you, copper leaches safe amounts of copper ions into the water. which has strong antibacterial and alkalizing properties that improve the digestion process.
The copper leached into the water overnight (8 hour) amounts to 0.475 ppm (parts per million).
This amount is well within the water copper content limits set by the World Health Organization (WHO) – which is 2 ppm (or 2 mg per liter).
Thus with fare calculation, 3 days old copper water is quite safe to drink, I mean according to WHO.
But our Indian Ayurveda does not believe so. Even a one month old copper vessel water is much more good for health.
copper vessel does not leach copper into water even if kept for long time. However the test of water change a little due to copper.
This test is good for your gut. Believe me.
