I drink about a gallon of water a day. Our bodies are made up primarily of water, about 60%. I can’t stress how important it is to stay hydrated.
I’ll share with you 6 reasons why it’s important to drink water and then I’ll go into a new water bottle I recently tried from Liberty Bottle Works.
6 Reasons Why Drinking Water is Important
1. Helps your body maintain a proper balance of fluids. This includes fluids for digestion, circulation, saliva, transporting nutrients, and balancing your body temp.
2. Water can help control calories: It’s great for substituting water for higher calories beverages like pop, fruit juice, or a cappuccino. If water is too “boring” for you add flavoring or try natural flavoring by infusing fruit. Water can also help with weight loss by making you feel more full. Make sure to drink plenty of water with your meals.
3. Water Helps Energize Muscles: Helps maintain and balance electrolytes, very important to drink while exercising or in hot temperatures.
4. Helps Skin look younger and healthy: Being dehydrated can make your skin look more dry and wrinkled. Picture a plump grape in comparison to a dried out raisin. Which would you prefer?
5. Water helps your kidneys: helps them cleanse the body and get rid of toxins. Drinking too little water puts you at risk for kidney stones.
6. Water helps maintain normal bowel function: this one is self explanatory
My number 1 tip: keep a bottle with you at your desk, car, or bag. You’ll drink more if you have easy access to it.
How to choose the right water bottle and why it's important?
Things to keep in mind when choosing a new water bottle:
- Choose high- quality, durable materials
- Make sure it wont leak
- Get something easy to use
- Does it carry enough water?
- It is the right size/weight/fit?
- Taste? Taste of water can change depending on the material of the vessel.
Choosing the right water bottle is extremely important to your health. Many bottles are lined with potentially harmful liners. Many plastic bottles leech the plastic chemicals into your drink - especially when warm or with acidic drinks. Such as lemonade.
Liberty Bottleworks Takes Your Health Seriously.
Keeping these questions in mind there is a brief, fact based review of the water bottles Liberty Bottleworks has to offer:
About Liberty Bottleworks
This is a honest, trustworthy company that is very environmentally focused (using recycled materials) and the only aluminum bottle being made right here in the USA.
On their website they say: “We promote people, not profit; we protect the environment, not harm it; we make high quality, long lasting, artistically enhanced bottles we all can be proud of. With Liberty, life is better.”
Are Liberty Bottles durable? Will it leak? Are the materials safe?
Liberty Bottleworks bottle are from deep-drawn recycled aluminum, coated with food-grade material. The coating is flexible, which means it does not chip if the bottle gets dented. Liberty Bottleworks uses Digital Cylindrical Printing, which puts the finish on accurately and consistently.
The powder in the finish is BPA-free and they bake using energy-saving IR light ovens.They do use solid, high quality materials. I’ve dropped mine many time in the house or when I’m out hiking and have not had any dents.
Bottles are made with recycled materials and are entirely recyclable. They continue to develop new processes in design and fabrication to make the products last longer and leave a smaller carbon footprint.
Whether it is bottles made from recycled aluminum cans or the bottle caps made from recycled milk jugs, they leave no stone unturned in search of new recycled content technology. Liberty bottles will not leak.
"BPA FREE POWDER Both our internal and external powder are BPA free. They do not contain any epoxy or resin compounds. Safer for you and the environment."
Is it easy to use and style? Right size/fit/weight?
Yes. These are as simple as you can get, which is great. I want to take a drink of water, not complete a rubix cube while trying to open a water bottle.
There are three different options for the tops: Standard (twist off) , sport (straw that flips up) and Navi Cap. (like standard twist off but with with a built in compass).
You can also customize your size, color, design and even create your own!They have many different colors, designs, and styles to chose from including bottles for kids, seasonal, artistic among other categories. For full options visit the official website here.
Choose sizes between 16oz, 24oz, or 32oz. Made of light weight aluminum so it’s not heavy like a steel or glass bottle. Very portable and travel friendly.
Benefits or “Pros” of Liberty Water Bottles

Cons I can think of for Liberty Bottles:
- You'll have a hard time picking out the design
- Recommended Hand wash only. Not fully dishwasher safe.
Are Liberty Bottleworks Bottles Dishwasher safe?
I would not recommend running these bottles through the dishwasher. Washing instructions that the manufacturer recommends is to hand wash with a little soap. Your bottle will last longer. If you want to risk it you can run the bottle and cap through the dishwasher, it won't destroy it but over time it will take a toll on the bottle. The insert in of the bottles states that dishwasher soap is generally a lot harsher and therefore they recommend hand wash only.
Where can I get replacement caps and Sport Caps?
