Meet Spring 

Proudly announcing Spring, Bellabeat’s smart water bottle and the first bottle powered by AI. Spring is designed to make hydration an effortless habit, improve your health and give you knowledge about your hydration habits. From where you live to how active you are, your body’s hydration needs are unique. We made a bottle that tracks your water intake and calculates your hydration goals based on your body’s needs.

Why hydration is our next chapter

Hydration is the foundation of one’s self-care. Almost 70% of our body is made of water and we can’t go longer than a couple of days without it. So how come it is always the last thing on our mind?

Busy lifestyles have led us to neglect and forget that by taking care of ourselves first we can be more productive, happier, healthier, and better in everything we do. The number one reason people say they’re not drinking enough water is: “I forgot.”

No more forgetting, no more guessing.

Spring makes sure you never forget to drink water with notifications that remind you to drink regularly based on your hydration goals. It tracks your water intake throughout the day and helps you develop a healthy hydration habit.

Spring comes with different options to accessorize it your way and we can’t wait to reveal you more.

Why You Should Drink More Water

If you have ever wondered why you should drink more water, then today’s blog is here to help. To celebrate the launch of our exciting new product Spring – the smart bottle, we thought we would focus on some of the amazing benefits of hydration. Here are just a few of the countless upsides of drinking water (truly, we tried to count them but couldn’t keep up) and the powerful things hydration does for your body.

Feeds your cells

Cells are the basic structural, functional, and biological unit of all known living organisms. So, it’s safe to say these guys are pretty important. Water makes up about 70% of our cells and is essential for them to function properly. It also feeds our cells and fuels them to work. In essence, water is life.

Flushes out toxins

Imagine a fish tank. Now imagine not cleaning it out for a few weeks. The water would get murky, grime would accumulate, and we’d have some sad little fish on our hands. This is a good analogy of what happens to our bodies when we don’t get into the habit of flushing out toxins. Proper hydration helps filter out our kidneys and liver and rids our bodies of the excess bad stuff floating around.

Gives you beautiful, glowing skin

Ridding your body of toxins also leads to better-looking skin. Skin is our largest organ and works as a barrier to the conditions of the outside world. As an organ, it is made up of hundreds and thousands of water-loving cells (remember these guys from before?). Hydrating your body helps fill those cells and leads to plumper, livelier looking skin. Did someone say fountain of youth?

Makes you happier

In a study, led by Coleen Muñoz, 120 healthy female college students documented everything they ate and drank for five days. The researchers calculated the water intake from all sources (food and drink), and controlled for known factors that affect mood, such as exercise and caffeine.

What they found was that the greater the water consumption, the better the mood. Tension, depression and confusion scores went down when water intake went up. Cheers to that!

Fuels your mind

Our brains depend on proper hydration to function at their best. Brain cells require a delicate balance between water and various elements to operate, and when you lose too much water, that balance is disrupted. Your brain cells lose efficiency.

Years of research have found that when we’re parched, we have more difficulty keeping our attention focused. Dehydration can impair short-term memory function and the recall of long-term memory.

Assists weight loss

Drinking water assists weight loss in several ways. Can we get an “oh yeah”! Firstly, it boosts your metabolism – every time you eat or drink, your body goes into “diet-induced thermogenesis” where it works to process what comes in. This works the same for water, which revs your metabolism into gear without the extra calories to burn. Drinking water also makes you feel full so you are less likely to overeat, and it also keeps you from drinking other things like calorie-laden sodas and beverages that do more harm than good.
