The importance of hydration whilst travelling.


Travelling and going overseas is something we do regularly, however to keep safe and healthy it’s important to be careful with what we eat and drink. In foreign countries its best to not eat street food but stick to meals that are cooked in hotels as street food vendors do not always have to follow the hygiene standards that we have in western countries. This may result in food that is substandard and can cause many upset stomachs and food poisoning.

The second most important thing is to keep hydrated whilst travelling, drink plenty of fluids, stick to water as carbonated sugary drinks are not healthy for you.  An adult should  drink at least 6-8 glasses of water in an a average day. Whilst travelling abroad, it is important to stick to bottled water however it can be expensive and if you are trekking or travelling in remote places it may not always be available. That’s when the pod+ bottle comes in handy.

The pod+ is a reusable water bottle with an inbuilt replaceable filter, recently launched by nkdlife.com The filter has the ability to deep clean any type of water be it from the tap, dirty rivers or lakes and removes impurities. It has the capability to filter out 99.9% contaminants making any water safe to drink. The filter will last for 300 bottle refills, this is approx 175 litres of water making it more economical than using bottled water.

The pod+ bottles come in 6 different colours and they are made from BPA free Tritan. The bottles retail at £19.95 and the replacement cartridges are £7.95 each. The bottles are available to purchase from Harrods and nkdlife.com

***I was sent a bottle for review purposes,  all opinions expressed in this post are my own.

As always I love my readers to try out products that I am testing. Nkd life have been very generous and have agreed to send a pod+ bottle out to one citrusspiceuk reader.

  2. What a great idea, especially when you can carry it around empty until you find a source so much lighter to pack. We should drink six to eight glasses of water per day.
