Drinking Copper Infused Water

21 Feb 2016   Shanti Gowans

Copper is an essential trace mineral necessary for survival. Most of the copper in the body is found in the liver, brain, heart, kidneys and skeletal muscle. 

Copper helps with the formation of collagen, increases the absorption of iron and plays a role in energy production. It is beneficial for good skin, less fat, better digestion, joint pain management and more

Copper is found in a wide variety of foods. Some of the best sources of copper are organ meats, shellfish, nuts, legumes and chocolate:

Mushrooms, cooked, 1 cups: 790 micrograms

Cashew nuts, raw, 1 oz: 622 micrograms

Lentils, boiled, 1 cup: 497 micrograms

Almonds, 1 oz: 292 micrograms

Chocolate, semi-sweet, 1 oz: 198 micrograms.”

Include these amasing foods in your diet to get enough of copper, for sure, but be aware of how much of chocolate and cashew nuts can you eat without adversely affecting your waistline.

You can also consider enjoying more benefits by simply drinking copper infused water that has been stored overnight in a copper pot.
