It isn’t a secret that water is essential to good health. As the body is made up of 60 percent water, drinking water helps maintain the balance of body fluids which aid digestion, absorption, circulation, creation of saliva, transportation of nutrients and maintenance of body temperature. Drinking water has also been touted to help with bowel function, allow the kidneys to process toxic waste, energize muscles and help with calorie control.
The Mayo Clinic has reported that while it is hard to say exactly how much water each individual should consume, the recommended eight servings of eight ounces of water is easy to remember and has stuck. Contigo has come up with an easy way to get this amount each and every day in a fun, fresh manner.
The Contigo Autoseal Tritan Pitcher set is a spill- and leak-proof pitcher that seals for freshness, keeping out any odors. The pitcher’s innovative design makes it easy to hold and operate with the push of a button on the handle. Press and tip to pour, then release the button to automatically seal the lid again.
The set includes a removable infuser stick that is accessible through a quick release lid. Simply cut fruit, veggies or herbs to fit and drop them inside the stick. Fill up the pitcher with water, let the flavors infuse and enjoy.
The set also includes an ice core, which can be frozen and used in place of the infuser stick to keep infused water cold without diluting the flavor. It is BPA-free, top rack dishwasher safe and fits most refrigerator shelves and doors. The 72-ounce capacity allows for deliciously easy, daily hydration.
Contigo carries an entire line of other BPA-free water vessels including travel mugs, bottles, cups and accessories. Getting enough water during the hot summer months couldn’t be simpler.
