5 Benefits of Doing Ushapan

Ushapan (dawn water) is an Ayurvedic Dincharya (daily routine) process which advises drinking 1 litre of water first thing in the morning before brushing your teeth or going to the toilet. The benefits increase if the water is stored in a copper vessel overnight. So what are the benefits of doing ushapan and what are the steps of doing it?

Benefits of Ushapan:

Removes Toxins: Copper water washes away Ama in the intestines and moves it to the excretory channels so that it is removed through urine and stool. As a result, diseases like constipation, hyperacidity and dyspepsia are treated or prevented. The skin also becomes clear and beautiful.

Stimulates Digestion:

Ushapan also aids in strengthening the digestive fire. Copper has properties that aids in the process of peristalsis (movement of food through the food canal) and eliminates all Ama that is stuck to the intestines. As soon as Ama is removed, digestive fire becomes strong.

Balances Doshas:

Tamra Jal or copper water is positively charged and it can balance all three Doshas. That alone prevents many diseases from happening in the first place which starts with a dosha imbalance.

Stimulates the kidneys:

Daily practise of Ushpan stimulates the kidney in performing its functions normally. Absorption, circulation and excretion of impurities happens normally with the action of copper on the kidneys.

Aids in Weight Loss:

You get a three-fold weight loss benefit with Ushapan. Obesity happens when Kapha dosha goes out of balance. With Ushapan, all three doshas start becoming balanced, and on top of that, it also reignites your digestive fire. The overall result is strong metabolism and reduction in fat tissues.

How to do Ushapan

  • Wake up during the Brahma Muhurta (1h 30m before sunrise), or at most by 6am
  • Sit up on the bed and take a few moments to become fully awake
  • Take the copper vessel and drink a few gulps at a time
  • Drink the water completely, or as much as you can
