    Aim: Traditional metallic medicines have innate discernable structures; systematic dissection and investigation of their synthesis, may lead to invaluable human benefits and proven applications. Transmutation of even toxic metals and minerals for internal administration has been a very interesting process; it has gathered much research attention these days. Such synthesized metals involved as drugs, for healing diversified human diseases are mercury, gold, silver, copper, zinc, lead and tin etc. The present work aims to synthesize copper in powdered form following traditional lines of thought that has biomedical application. Materials and Methods: The synthesized Cu powder is characterized using PXRD, FTIR, UV, SEM and TEM studies. Its anti microbial activity was also investigated against E.Coli., and S.Aureus bacteria. Results and Discussion: UV and XRD patterns confirmed the presence of Cu; XRD revealed the copper structure to be face centered cubic in nature. SEM and TEM revealed surface morphological properties; FTIR revealed vibration bands corresponding to C-H bending, C-O stretching and overlapping of OH with amine N-H stretching bonds. The powder exhibited sound anti microbial activity against the two selected species. Conclusion: An interesting green and biogenic synthesis involving pre and pro biotic beverages is presented here. This is a novel, cost cutting, eco friendly and excludes the usage of hazardous chemical.
