FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Are your bottles made of pure copper?
Yes and no. Water bottles in 100% pure copper are a myth and would be physically impossible to manufacture and manage. Although they are not 100%, the highest possible degree of chemical compound purity is over 99%. Consider this when evaluating other copper products that claim to be 100% clean. The products may well be fake and of unknown metal products with copper plating that can be torn off over time and at worst leak heavy metals into your water. When you buy a copper bottle from Anovea, you can be absolutely sure that it is of the highest cleanliness and quality tested in the laboratory as well as made under sanitary conditions with the best possible basic materials.

Can I get too much copper if I regularly drink from my copper water bottle?
The simple answer is no. Although it is rare, one can consume too much copper which leads to toxicity. However, this is not possible by simply and continuously drinking water from copper bottles. A recent scientific study published in the Journal of Health, Population and Nutrition found that there is no risk of getting too much copper with copper bottles. The copper content of water stored in copper bottles was well within the permitted limits of the World Health Organization(WHO)water quality guidelines, which is several times higher.

If I have a copper shortage, will it help to drink water from a copper bottle?
Copper shortages can be one of the many causes of fatigue and weakness. Copper is important for absorbing iron from the gut. When the copper content is low, the body can absorb less iron. This can cause iron deficiency anemia, a condition in which the body cannot carry enough oxygen to its tissues. Drinking water from a copper bottle should not be used to change the copper content of the body. If you have copper shortages, you should primarily check with your healthcare provider what is best for you and avoid self-diagnosing and self-treat.

Can I put something else in my bottle besides water?
Since the creation of the copper bottle and ayurvedans discovered of its positive effects as water vessels, they were intended for drinking water and therefore it is only clean drinking water we recommend using.

Can my copper water bottle create alkaline water?
Yes, and it's scientifically proven. In a study conducted in 2012, the researchers concluded that copper over time increases the pH level, thereby making the water more alkaline. When water is stored in a copper water bottle, the water absorbs safely and naturally small amounts of copper. This ionizes the water and converts it into alkaline water. The speed and degree of alkalization depends on various factors, such as its original pH level and temperature.

Can cups kill bacteria?
It is common knowledge that copper kills bacteria. Copper and its alloys are naturally antimicrobial materials. Ancient civilizations took advantage of the antimicrobial properties of copper long before the concept of microbes was understood. According to the study Storing Drinking-water in Copper pots Kills Contaminating Diarrhoeagenic Bacteria carried out in 2012, it was shown that copper has major antibacterial effects against diarrhea bacteria such as Vibrio cholerae O1, Shigella flexneri 2a, enterotoxic Escherichia coli, enteropatogen E. coli, Salmonella enterica-typhi and salmonella-paratyphi. It only took 16 hours to kill all the bacteria.

What health benefits do I get from drinking water from a copper bottle?
Copper effectively kills bacteria and other pathogens in water making it cleaner and fresher. The water in the bottles also becomes alkaline. According to a study published in the Annals of Otology, Rhinology & Laryngology, alkaline water with a pH level of 8.8 can help relieve acid outflow because higher pH-level kills pepsin, an enzyme involved in breaking down food proteins and a main cause of acid reflux. Another study published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition has argued that a significant difference in whole blood viscosity after consuming high pH water compared to regular water after a strenuous workout. According to a study published in the Shanghai Journal of Preventive Medicine, drinking water of alkaline content can be beneficial to people suffering from high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes.
