Importance of Staying Hydrated & Review of Sigg Water Bottle



Between all of the weight lifting, exercising, and dancing I did growing up I learned the value of eating healthy and drinking enough fluids.  When you exercise, you sweat.  And  sweating leads to a decrease in oxygen running through your system which can leave you dehydrated and weak.  The best way to counter this natural process is drinking enough fluids (water and sports drinks) to keep your body hydrated and strong.

In high school my dance team had to be at the gym ready to practice every day at 5:30.  And depending on the day we would practice anywhere from 2-4 hours.  We took a lot of drink breaks, but I hated standing in line for the water fountain behind a large group of girls.  I was thirsty!  It didn't take long for me to learn the value of a good water bottle.

Sigg is a Switzerland based company that has been making water bottles since 1908.




I've used metal bottles before, so although I love that they keep drinks cool I hate the metal taste that is associated with most.  Much to my surprise the Sigg bottle didn't have one!

All of the Sigg bottles have a special baked on Ecocare Liner which guarantees a fresh, clean taste with no metallic aftertaste.  The liner also prevents the transferring of taste and odor between drinks,  meaning almost any cold beverage can be put in the Sigg bottle.

Sigg bottles are aluminum and come in all different sizes - including an adorable baby size.


To Buy - SIGG’s are available for $17.99-$29.99 and there are completely recyclable.  Their are a huge variety of styles available, and the bottles are even customizable making them the perfect gift.

My only word of caution would be that because the bottles are made from aluminum, and aluminum conducts heat, Sigg bottles aren't great for hot drinks.  My Sigg bottle was freezing cold when I added cold water and I can't even imagine how hot the bottle would get if I put hot cocoa or something in it instead.
