Harnessing Medicinal Properties of Copper Against COVID-19
At the outset, we would like to submit that this blog is not intended to exaggerate and make disproportionate claims about copper metal products as savior and armor against the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Rather this blog explores and reviews published scientific literature revealing innate anti-viral benefits of copper specifically against SARS-COV2 outbreak. We can be amazed by the intellect and acumen of our ancestors who 10,000 years back in history discovered copper and techniques to make its various alloys and incorporated copper extensively in their lifestyle.
Colossal Coronavirus infection cases and mortality figures have led to a surge in the market for materials laced with copper including face masks, bed sheets, socks, and many more. In this blog, we would like to highlight well accepted and established medicinal properties of copper and how this innate power of copper can be exploited in COVID times.
Below are some published scientific literature revealing innate anti-viral benefits of copper specifically against SARS-COV2 outbreak. You can click on each article to visit the websites where these are published.
In Ayurveda, drinking water cleansed and ionized in a copper vessel, cooking and serving food in copper utensils has been a centuries-old practice. This potentially therapeutic water from copper vessels charged with antioxidants is called Tamra Jal. Coppersmith Creations in an effort to disseminate this ancient wisdom globally has been manufacturing authentic copper bottles, mugs, glass, jugs, and utensils in its state-of-the-art facility in India. Drinking Tamra Jal and using copper utensils is believed to boost innate immunity as copper is a key element in the functioning and maintenance of the human immune system.
