Keeping yourself well hydrated is an important part of a safe and satisfying workout. Most elliptical trainers feature some kind of cup holder or location for storing your water bottle whilst you are using the machine enabling you to reach out and rehydrate without having to get off the machine. However, a further important part of staying fit and well is not just diet and exercise but also to look at what other chemicals are entering your body and to eliminate those which are unecessary where possible.
Recent studies into Bisphenol A, a chemical found in some forms of plastic, have found this chemical will leach out of many food and drink containers it and into your diet with most tested having some levels of BPA in our bodies already as it was found in everything from plastic food utensils to baby bottles to bottled water although less so as public pressure is leading to many companies switching to BPA free plastic. Recent studies have linked high BPA levels to heart disease, obesity, diabetes and liver disfunction as well as sexual disfunction and a host of other ailments. Whilst much of the industry claims BPA is harmless, the evidence is mounting to the contrary and since your reasons for working out are more than likely to avoid those conditions which this chemical has potentially been linked to, all the more reason to cut it out anyway.
Some bottled water and sports bottles are still made with BPA plastic and should be avoided for better BPA free water bottles instead. BPA free sports bottles are easy to come by and if you’re someone who usually reaches for the disposable plastic bottled water, you’ll also be doing your bit for the planet and your wallet by switching to a reusable BPA-less water bottle as well. Over 13 billion plastic bottles are discarded in the UK each year, many of those disposable water bottles and with the price of bottled water averaging around 95p per litre – 1000 times more than tap water – you’ll easily recoup the price of a BPA free reusable water bottle and do a little bit for the environment too as well as saving yourself cash in the long run.
