The CamelBak drinking bottle seems to be a great alternative to drinking bottles made from BPA. Well-informed consumers are demanding a safer drinking bottle, given the controversy about BPA containing products that can have a negative impact on human health.

The Camelbak drinking bottle has a self-sealing valve to prevent spills. The manufacturer promises you will taste your water, not chemicals. The entire line of CamelBak bottles are BPA free, dishwasher safe, and available in a variety of colors. The bottles became BPA free in April 2008.

The bottle poses no health risk because it is made from a newer copolyester polymer called Tritan. The polymer is impact and heat resistant making it sustainable. Tritan™ is an Eastman technological development.

Sally McCoy, CamelBak CEO says" Consumers have been asking for a BPA-free alternative with the strength, clarity and vibrant color of polycarbonate bottles. We're very happy to be the first company to give them that choice."

Good hydration is essential for active people to prevent weakness, low blood pressure, and electrolyte imbalance from dehydration.

The American College of Sports Medicine recommends drinking six to eight ounces of water every fifteen to twenty minutes during moderate intensity exercise, in moderate conditions. High intensity exercise in the heat demands more fluid intake. You should also hydrate before exercises. Recommended fluid intake before exercise is fourteen to twenty ounces two hours before exercise activity.

Now you can carry your own water. Most of us have ditched bottled water, and we urge everyone to take a close look at the adverse effect of BPA from plastics on human health.

We have been looking for a better drinking bottle that is durable, can withstand the heat, and provides a BPA free alternative. Consider the CamelBak drinking bottle for cycling, hiking, spin class, or just a day out enjoying nature.
