Sun charged water: Importance and benefits

Have you ever heard of Sun charged water, and its Ayurvedic importance and benefits?

On the other hand, the sun is the source of life and it is believed that sunlight contains more than 70 elements and has powerful energetic waves that get mixed in water and renders it properties of being anti-viral, antifungal and antibacterial.
