The Summer is arriving….. and now we’ll all start buying new set of bottles for fridge or some of us will head towards storeroom to get the last years fridge bottles. But, Do we know how harmful these plastic bottles are? unless they are BPA free.
Lets try Earthen pot (matka, matki, surahi) this time.
For generations, earthen pots or matkis have been used to store water and keep it cool. Water stored in matkis is cooled to the temperature of the water which is ideal for drinking – not too warm and not too chilled.
Here are few benefits of drinking matki cooled water this summer :
- Metabolism : Yes, you read it right, drinking matki water daily can help us boost our metabolism without adding dangerous chemicals like BPA which are present in Plastic bottles .
- pH balance : Matki’s earthen nature provides a proper pH balance as clay pots are alkaline in nature , which helps in acidity and gastronomic pains.
- Gentle On Throat : We all remember the times when our elders used to scold us for drinking chilled water after coming from direct sun. They might have asked to have normal water or matki water instead . Water stored in matkis is cooled naturally and to the temperature which is ideal for drinking.
- Improves Testosterone level: Clay pot water drinking can very well improve the level of testosterone in your body when compared water stored in plastic.
Some precautions to be used while using clay pot water.
- Keep your earthen pot germ-free by cleaning and then drying the clay pot . You should make sure that you change the water stored in it regularly and clean the earthen pot once in 3 days.
- The breeze will help keep your water cool down quickly.
- Keep the clay pot covered at all times to prevent insects, dust and other contaminants from falling into it.
- Use a clean, long-handled ladle.
