The 13 Best BPA-Free Water Bottles
Do you pee in five-minute intervals? Is your bag weighed down with plastic water bottles? Do waiters refill your glass thirty times during the course of a meal? I wholeheartedly understand, and as a fellow water addict, I can tell you, investing in one of the best BPA-free water bottles is a smart move.
I've always stayed relatively hydrated, but when I started getting into nutrition, I realized just how essential water is for every function in your body. It flushes out toxins, balances energy levels, carries nutrients to cells, and keeps your temperature stable. Some studies even link dehydration to increased stress levels. After that, I went through disposable water bottles like nobody's business until I learned that it was a catch 22 — plastic water bottles are often loaded with chemicals that are not only bad for the environment, but can also be a health risk.
Bisphenol-A (BPA) is one of said toxins. It disrupts your endocrine system by mimicking and interfering with your body's hormones, mood, tissue function, metabolism, and growth and development. In other words, skipping it altogether is a solid idea, and there are tons of reusable water bottles with awesome features that promise to use safe, BPA-free materials for the sake of your health and the environment.
