Benefits of Drinking Water from Traditional Earthenware
When you come back home on a drenched summer afternoon what is the first thing that comes to your mind when you enter your home or your workplace ? Isn’t it a cold glass of water ?
Drinking refrigerated cold water can cause sunstroke . Also , storing water in plastic containers or bottles is harmful because plastic contains harmful substances such as arsenic , aluminium that is hazardous to the body . Not only this , it affects our immune system too!
But everything in this busy world has alternatives . When the smart technological world doesn’t work , it is always clever to switch back to our traditional methods . One such traditional method used since ancient India for storing drinking water is the use of earthen pots .
Earthenware is completely free of these harmful chemicals and is very organic . These days if you are habitual to drinking water from bottles , then even earthen bottles are available in the market .
Basic Principle of Earthenware
The material used for the earthenware is clay which is porous . When water is added , some of it seeps quickly through the porous walls of the vessel . The water on the outside walls needs to be evaporated for which it requires latent heat of evaporation . This is done by absorbing the heat from the inside of the earthenware thus lowering the temperature of the water on the insides .
Major Benefits of Drinking Water from Earthenware
1. Refrigeration without Paying Bills
Your old refrigerator might have sucked up electricity , but that isn’t the case for earthen pots , bottles and filters . It is a completely economical process . It only requires one-time purchasing and later you do not have to worry about your electricity bills .
Just like the refrigerator , the water from an earthenware is cool enough to quench your thirst. Water once stored in earthenware pots and bottles stays cool throughout the day .
2. Quick Decomposing
If you use a plastic bottle it takes almost 450 years to decompose thus degrading the environment . As the material of the earthenware is completely organic , once decomposed it mixes up with the earthly elements . This method is hence proved eco-friendly .
3. Natural and Healthy
Our regular plastic bottles contain BPA (Bisphenol A) which is very hazardous for our health . Also, drinking a particular amount of water per day increases the metabolism of the body and also testosterone levels . Both the above-desired needs are fulfilled by using earthenware .
Another interesting thing about earthenware is that it is made up of clay which is alkaline in nature . This maintains the pH level of the body if the water is acidic .
Keeping in mind the above benefits of storing water in earthenware , it is also truly authentic and soothing to drink the cool water from an earthen pot or a bottle with the slight earthen flavour of the natural ingredients and the soil .
Mitti Cool – ‘ Soul of the Soil ’ as the name goes offers a wide range of earthenware products like Pots (Matka) , bottles , filters and even refrigerator to restore back the culture . Going with the tradition , you can always replace your refrigerator with genuine Mitti Cool earthenware , also available in simple and also various beautiful and attractive designs .
