Amazing property of copper practised and passed to us by our ancestors, that we ignored to follow
Our ancestors had a higher understating of metals and the reason why they used to eat in Gold, Silver or Copper utensils can leave you amazed.
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.
Ancient Indians used to throw copper coins in rivers, lakes, ponds and wells. Today’s generation, without thinking of the meaning behind this act, are ignorantly throwing nickel, aluminium coins into rivers, which is detrimental to the environment. The idea behind throwing coins into water is not about the blind faith of river worship but to kill the harmful bacteria in water with copper (copper coins were used in ancient past) and this purified water would be useful for fish and other living beings.
