In the OriGym article, the Water-to-Go bottle was the only bottle to contain a filter and it is definitely something that separates our bottles from many other running bottles in the market.
“What separates this bottle from the rest of the running drinks bottle herd is its unique filter – designed to keep out 99.9999% of all bacteria and viruses.”
The great thing about a Water-to-Go bottle is that you can fill up from any tap or non-saltwater source whilst on your run (anywhere in the world!), and have access to safe, drinking water wherever you are. This means you don’t have to worry about the source of where you are getting your water from. Even if it is from a dodgy water fountain or even from a river; our filters will eliminate up to 99.9999% of all microbiological contaminants including viruses, bacteria, chemicals and heavy metals. Whatsmore, our bottles will even improve the taste of the water so you won’t get that chemical taste; regardless of the source.
Importance of hydration
The OriGym article also went on the discuss the importance of hydration and how much water we should be drinking. We have all heard the WHO guidance that we should all be drinking 2 litres of water a day but that doesn’t take into account if we are doing any excerise.
“The average human who weighs 150 pounds has just over 5 liters of water in their body. The more kilometres run, the more of this water is lost through sweating. In order to prevent dehydration, it is important to consume water whilst running in order to replenish the water lost through sweat. To stay hydrated it is recommended that for every 1,000 calories we burn from exercise, one litre of water is consumed.”
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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Water is an essential component for the body’s methods of thermoregulation.
- 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.
Water is an essential part of the body and it is important that we stay well hydrated with safe, healthy water to keep our body healthy. Water-to-Go filter bottles remove harmful contaminants from water but also let through beneficial minerals meaning you will get access to the safest, healthiest water possible.
Reusable, refillable, recyclable
Another important aspect of water bottles that the OriGym article discussed was the potential danger of BPAs.
“BPA, otherwise known as Bisphenol A, is a chemical that is added to commercialised products, such as: food, furniture and hygiene equipment. It is a widely used component used in plastics and is shockingly linked to a number of health concerns, from diabetes to high blood pressure.”
Water-to-Go bottles are all BPA-free so there are no dangers of any chemicals leaching into the water. Furthermore, the materials we use to make our bottles are LDPE and PET, specially selected materials which are FDA-approved for food and beverages. It cannot leak or taint the water and has been specifically designed to be BPA-free. This makes our products reusable, refillable and 100% recyclable. Furthermore, Water-to-Go is also one of, if not the first, water filter bottle that is Halal Certified. Through this, it also means that, although there is no mechanism for certification as of yet, our bottles are also suitable for vegans and vegetarians as well. We set out to make sure our bottles are universal and a product that everyone and anyone can use.
