Why use a Water-to-Go bottle?
Keeps You Healthy
Our unique water filtration system protects you by removing things that are bad for you while keeping good stuff like minerals in the water that you drink. A Water-to-Go filter will:
- Remove chemicals in your tap water such as chlorine and fluoride
- Take out contamination from untreated water sources either at home or abroad
- Stop viruses, bacteria and water borne cysts entering your digestive system
- Keep you free from BPA
What Does BPA-Free Mean?
BPA (Bisphenol A) is a chemical compound found in many single use water bottles. Medical reports show some of these plastic water bottles 'leach' man-made oestrogen (BPA) into its contents when the bottle is exposed to sunlight or temperatures over 60°F or 15°C. These oestrogens can lead to cancer. That means leaving a bottle in your car or outside a shop, in sunlight, starts the process!
The material we use is LDPE, a specially developed plastic polymer which is FDA-approved for food and beverages. It cannot leak or taint the water and has been specifically designed to be BPA-free.
The Health Benefits of Hydration
Water makes up around 70% of us. It helps the body function, maintaining physical and mental health. Drinking water and staying hydrated is a vital component of any good health and fitness plan.
Latest research recommends that an average adult should consume 4-6 litres of water daily. More than 80% of us fail to come close to the target: we tend to ignore water until the time we feel thirsty.
Here’s why hydration (drinking water) is good for your health:
Hydration keeps you active
Water is necessary for the body. It is the one thing that can keep you going for an extended period without feeling tired. According to experts, drinking water at regular intervals can help improve alertness and helps keep the body active. Taking in water periodically forces the body to recalibrate the electrolytic balance of fluids in the body for optimum use.
Hydration slows aging
The self-regulatory mechanism of our bodies performs much more efficiently when all the components it needs are there for it to use. Drinking plenty of water is good for the skin, and healthy skin is a sign of looking younger.
Since water helps in removing toxins from the system, problems like acne and excessive oil accumulation in the skin pores, are much more easily dealt with by a better hydrated body.
Hydration helps in regulating body temperature
Thermoregulation is the process of keeping the body within an optimal temperature range, so that it is neither too hot nor too cold. The most obvious example is sweating, where water is pumped through the skin and then the body’s heat energy helps evaporate the sweat. This has a cooling effect that lowers body temperature.
Water is an essential component for the body’s methods of thermoregulation.
Hydration helps improve digestion
Feeding the body the nutrients it requires to function (digestion) uses water at every stage. A lack of water results in less efficient assimilation of food and less effective of the body’s energy stores. Drink more water and you will better process fat. With more energy you will feel better too.
Hydration improves brain function
The human brain works by generating and replicating electrical impulses. This entire system functions using the electrolyte ions present in the body. Electrolyte ions are made available in fluids that are primarily water. The brain is more water than almost any other organ (roughly 80% water in composition) so having access to water from the body helps it to work in the best possible manner.
So there are at least 6 reasons why being fully hydrated makes you healthier. Having a Water-to-Go filter bottle at hand supports you in staying hydrated, taking out a huge range of things that are bad for you whilst allowing you to drink healthy water wherever you are.
