Define Water Bottle: Should It Be Ice Cold? – Define Bottle
  • Should Your Define Water Bottle Be Ice Cold Or Room Temperature?

    Water is the most refreshing beverage we can give our bodies. After all, more than half of the human body is made up of the stuff! We must hydrate constantly to keep our cells and organs operating in peak condition.

    However, there’s a lot of conflicting information swirling around about how water should be consumed. Should it be plain or have lemon in it? Should it be out of a disposable plastic bottle or something reusable, like a Define water bottle? And lastly, should it be hot, room temperature, or ice cold?

    Conflicting Information About Optimal Water Temperature

    In 2015, an article in NY Mag about a Victoria’s Secret model caught the public’s eye. Models are known for having incredibly fit bodies, and this particular one claimed that the secret to her physical appearance was her early morning beverage. The model said that an Ayurveda specialist told her that warm water is more easily absorbed by your body than cold water and is gentler on your stomach.

    But then you’ll find lots of articles that say if you’re concerned with weight loss, you should drink cold water. The theory is water that’s below our body’s normal temperature causes the body to “work” harder in order to warm it up. Any time the body’s “working,” it’s burning calories. However, it’s also thought that ice cold water can be shocking to the stomach and digestive system.

    So should you put ice in your Define water bottle or not?

    The answer is: it depends.

    If you have gastrointestinal issues, or simply want a healthy way to ease your body out of sleep mode in the morning, lukewarm to hot water with lemon is probably best.

    However, if you’re looking for a beverage that will boost your metabolism and help keep you hydrated throughout the day, attach the freezable base, throw your favorite fruit into your Define water bottle, and be on your way!
