Vasanti Health Tamba Cup ($29.99) and Tamba Pani Jug ($72.99)
In Ayurveda, drinking water that has been cleansed and ionized in a copper vessel is a common practice. Copperized water is a natural antioxidant that helps balance the three doshas of our bodies (kapha, vata and pitta). Copper-infused water recharges the vitality of your drinking water. It ionizes, energizes, and balances the pH, making the water “alive” again. This energized water is better absorbed by your cells and therefore enhances hydration. Drink 8 ounces from the Tamba Cup https://www.vasantihealth.com/product/tamba-cup/ or hold up to 42 ounces of water in the Tamba Pani Jug https://www.vasantihealth.com/product/tamba-pani-jug/ – great for the entire family, dinner parties, or drinking copper-infused water throughout the day.
