What is Structured Water?

Structured water, also called magnetised or hexagonal water is water whose structure has been altered to form a hexagonal cluster. In simple terms, this is water as pure, as unpolluted, or as uncontaminated as water found in natural spring water.

Water can be restructured in various ways. Some of these are:

  • magnetizing it through a process called vortexing
  • exposing it to ultraviolet or infrared light
  • exposing it to natural heat and energy, such as sunlight
  • storing it in gemstone water bottles

Why to Use Structured Water

Today, drinking water comes in contact with plastic/pvc ever so often since:

  • Borewells/tubewells lift water through pipes made of these materials
  • Water is stored in overhead tanks made of pvc.
  • Water is purified in water filters made of plastic.
  • Water is filled and sold in plastic bottles. We drink such water.

Because of this plastic nanoparticles get into the water and when such water is consumed they get deposited in the digestive organs. This water is hydrophobic thus reducing the absorption of vital nutrients from food. This creates a deficiency of micronutrients like minerals and consequently, many health issues crop up if such water is consumed for an extended time.

Copper plate removes these plastic nanoparticles and other impurities from the water and when structured water is consumed these get flushed out of the body.

Structured water has several healing properties and should be used for all cooking and drinking purposes.

Important Points to be Kept in mind When Making Structured Water

Making structured water at home is a very simple process with just a few commonly available things being required for its preparation. A video showing this process is also shared in this article.

The water structuring is achieved by using a copper plate/sheet. Although a copper pot can be used instead of the copper plate there are 2 reasons why it is not advised:

1. The copper pot has to be cleaned daily. This becomes a cumbersome process as copper gets oxidised very fast. Using a copper sheet makes this very easy and quick.

2. More importantly, copper has to be in contact with water for only about 6-8 hours for the water to get structured. Using a copper pot in which this water is stored for 24 hours may result in copper toxicity.

Silver also structures water but the water quality has been found to be better by using copper.

You can use a steel pot if you do not have an earthen pot.

Do try it and share your experience.

  1. Clean the pot and fill it with fresh water.
  2. Scrub both the sides of the copper plate with lemon and salt or tamarind and salt until the oxidation marks are removed.
  3. Wipe dry the copper plate and place it in the pot. Cover the pot with a lid and let it sit for 6-8 hours or 8 hours overnight.
  4. The next morning remove the copper plate and use this structured water for all drinking and cooking purposes.
  5. Do not use this water after it reaches 1/4 of its original level in the pot. Discard this water and repeat the process as explained above.
  6. Note:
  7. The pot should not have any tap whether plastic or steel attached to it for removing water.
  8. Structured water to prepare every day.
  9. Allow the water in the pot to rest for 6-8 hours before using it.
  10. Use a cup/mug with a handle to remove water from the top. This type of contraption is shown in the video.


  1. Structured water to prepared every day.
  2. Allow the water in the pot to rest for 6-8 hours before using it.
  3. The copper plate has to be cleaned every day with lemon and salt or tamarind and salt before placing it in the pot of water for structuring it.
  4. Fresh water to be filled in the pot every day after cleaning the earthen pot.

Health Benefits of Structured Water

  1. It is free of bacteria, viruses and other pathogens. The copper kills them.
  2. Reduces arthritic pains, risk of developing heart disease and cancer.
  3. Regulates the functioning of the thyroid gland.
  4. Stimulates the brain.
  5. Makes the skin and hair healthy.
  6. Improves digestion.
  7. Combats anaemia.
  8. Protects against infections.
  9. Boosts immunity
  10. Detoxifies the body.
  11. Boosts energy levels.

A fascinating read. Thank you for the information, my friend.

I didn't know how to make structured water, and I like this idea. I found this article very helpful and you explained this process very clearly.

Miebakagh Fiberesima from Port Harcourt, Rivers State, NIGERIA. on May 27, 2021:

Rajah, this article made me recall how my grand parents structured water when I was a boy. The water tastes better with earthen pots on the heath. But presently, I use blue or green coloured water proofs to wrap bottles and keep such in the Sun before 11.00 AM Rajah, your story is a nice read. I hope it found you well online. Thanks.
