My first recollection of a large copper filter was at my grandmother’s home along with neatly lined copper glasses on the shelf. Back then, what was a norm was somewhere lost as life sped by. Fancy cutlery and less expensive products made way into the houses.
Sometime last year, I chanced upon an antique looking copper filter in one of my travels. Not only did it revive loads of forgotten memories where we, a bunch of cousins drank from the copper glasses to stay cool in the summer, but also made me realize that this is something I should be introducing to my boys.

Copper helps to charge the water positively and needless to say when you consume it, there are various health benefits of drinking water in a copper vessel.

Helps the digestive system perform better
Ulcers, acidity and gastric issues were pretty much unheard of at least five decades ago. All these issues occur because of our inability to digest food better.
