The human body requires various metals in trace forms which are called micronutrients. The body cannot produce the micronutrients but their intake is a must for the body to form its functions. The main source of these metals are plants and also the utensils in which we eat our food. Whatever metal utensils we may use, traces of it go into the body with each meal. Bronze as we know if made of Copper and Tin. Both of these elements are vital for the body.


Copper is essential for the brain and the nervous system. It plays a role in collagen production which is one of the essential structural components of the body. It also helps in the neuron signalling in the brain by acting as a damper between neurons. Copper is germicidal i.e it kills germs. This helps prevent the production and accumulation of germs on bronze utensils. Copper also helps reduce the pH of the body and has an alkalizing effect.


The other component of bronze is tin which is very essential for the production of haemoglobin in the blood. Tin is also a trace element which catalyzes several body functions. Tin helps maintain the adrenals and hence adds energy and removes fatigue. It is also good for the mood and counters depression.

As both copper and tin play vital role for the brain functions, the ancient Ayurveda says “कांस्यम् बुद्धिवर्धकम् “meaning – eating in Bronze utensils enhances Intellect.
