Copper water bottle – benefits of the “Athlete” (hammered, polished)
Copper water bottle benefits reach far, so it’s not just a pretty face. Matte polished copper with a wide mouth for easy drinking and adding ice cubes. This bottle is a health powerhouse, super charging your water with copper ions. The copper material gives water properties ranging from antioxidant, to anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial for joint health and boosting of red blood cells. Ion charged water also helps digestive illnesses, aids your body swallow iron, regulates various glands and boosts essential hormone production for cell regeneration. Ayurvedic wisdom tells us that copper balances all three doshas, or elements, in our bodies (Vata, Pitta, Kipha).

Plastic free living
Let’s of course also not forget your contribution to plastic-free living in buying and using this bottle! Not only does plastic release harmful poisons into your body, it will outlast all of us if disposed of irresponsibly and harm our wildlife. You can find other plastic free alternatives on Chalk & Moss under the “Plastic free” tag.
Unlike steel bottles, copper bottles actually improve the quality of your water.
Sports water bottle
The 850ml capacity and wide opening of this sports water bottle with incredible benefits is perfect for active lifestyles, whilst still fitting into most bike water bottle holders. The copper material makes it 45% lighter than a glass alternative, and oh so much more practical for sports!
There’s a silicone seal twist grip lid to help prevent leaks. Note though that the nature of hand crafted bottles in flexible aluminium means they can’t be guaranteed to be 100% leak free. So keep it upright in your bag.
Made by skilled artisans, the copper ages beautifully, with birthmarks of time.
There are different variants of the Yogibeings’ copper bottles (hammered/smooth, matte/polished). See them here.
These are part of the Chalk & Moss plastic free living products, which you can find here.
Delivery & Details
Yogibeings copper bottle features:
This isn’t just another fancy looking water bottle. According to Ayurvedic texts, copper balances all three doshas, or elements, in our bodies (Vata, Pitta, Kipha). Water supercharged with copper ion gives us a host of health boosting benefits!
Your copper bottle activates powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-microbial properties to boost joint health, red blood cells and your digestion. This powerhouse:
- helps digestive ailments
- helps your body absorb iron
- regulates the functioning of the thyroid gland
- allows melanin production, which helps protect you from sun damage
- encourages cell regeneration, helping wounds heal, ease joint pain and keep you skin looking young
Whilst the anti-microbial properties happen in shorter time, it’s best to leave water in your bottle overnight (8-10 hours) for full supercharged benefits.
The copper bottle leaves the minutest trace of copper in the bottle (well below the RDA). This occurs with the supercharging, if water is left in the bottle 8-10 hours (which is the recommended time). If you have any concerns (for example, in pregnancy or illness), use the bottle but don’t leave the water overnight. Whilst the water won’t be supercharged, you’ll still benefit from the anti-microbial properties.
- 850ml capacity (900ml without the lid)
- pure copper – keeps water naturally cool and has healing antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties
- free from harmful toxins released from plastic bottles
- silicone sealed grip twist lid
- 45% lighter than an equivalent glass bottle
- fits into most bike and buggy bottle holders
- copper ages beautifully, like your favourite jeans
- as these bottles have been handmade by skilled artisans, some variation will occur
Note: Copper is a soft and flexible material that moves easily with changes in temperature. These bottles are fully natural and hand crafted, with a silicone seal around the edge. As such, it may not be 100% leak proof, particularly if the bottle is placed upside down.
Caring for your copper health guardian:
Rinse the bottle 2-3 times with warm water before first use. Wipe the outside with a damp cloth and let the bottle air dry. Copper conducts heat very well, so use hot water with caution!
The copper bottle likes pure water only, so don’t mix in flavourings (acidic or otherwise), put it in the dishwasher or wash it with detergent containing bleaching agents or alcohol. Chemical agents and other harsh ingredients will discolour and tarnish the bottle and shorten its life span. Whilst it’s a bad idea to add hot water, you can pop the bottle in the fridge to enjoy a pure cool drink on a hot day. If you want a hot or flavoured drink, pour the pure water from your bottle into another container before heating.
A wonderful feature of your copper bottle is that, over time, it will develop a natural patina residue and a beautiful darker hue. Most hand washing detergents contain chemicals that will tarnish the surface to develop this copper patina, and further birthmarks of its environment will appear, particularly if you live near the sea. Your copper bottle will change over time, with its own story to tell.
If you want to restore the shine, wash it with a homemade salt-vinegar solution, or rub with half a lemon sprinkled in salt. Rinse well with water and leave to air dry.
