Choose the best hydration to nurture the best academic performance

The brain is made up of approximately 73 per cent water. It controls movement, memory, speech and the function of many of the body’s vital organs. During the school term, students spend a large portion of their day at school, but too often they don't drink enough water throughout their school day.

The brain is made up of approximately 73 per cent water. It controls movement, memory, speech and the function of many of the body’s vital organs. But in order to do all of that correctly, it needs to remain hydrated. When the brain is dehydrated, it shrinks and needs to work much harder than it does when it is properly hydrated.

Determinant to a lack of water intake, the brain shrivels causing headaches, dizziness and fatigue, which can make it difficult for students to concentrate in the classroom and retain information.

During the school term, students spend a large portion of their day at school, but far too often, they aren’t drinking enough water throughout their school day. Drinking only during breaks isn’t enough to keep the body and brain replenished.

When students aren’t drinking enough water, they can seem irritable, tired or lethargic. Regardless of the efforts taken by the teacher to create an interesting and engaging class lesson, if the brain’s water supply isn’t replenished, it can have a significant impact on learning. As the body’s water levels drop, so too does a student’s ability to remain focussed. By the time a student actually feels thirsty, their bodies may already be showing signs of dehydration, so it’s important for students to drink water regularly throughout their day.

BRITA water filtration products provide easy access to purer drinking water whether you are at home or on the go.

Hydration on the go
A trusted household name, BRITA, a German company with over 50 years of expertise in water filtration, has developed the Fill & Go Active Bottle. This convenient bottle uniquely filters water as you drink, to deliver purer drinking water – so students have access to filtered water any time, anywhere.

These 600ml bottles are squeezable for easy drinking, are shock and leak resistant, have an easy to open mouthpiece, feature an indented grip and carry strap, and are also BPA free and dishwasher safe.

They provide an economical way to help students stay hydrated throughout the regular day, as well as during sport.

Using unique ActivSelect technology, the bottle’s MicroDisc filter reduces taste-impairing substances like chlorine, and contaminants like microplastics, while retaining essential minerals such as calcium and magnesium.

Though small in size, the MicroDisc filter delivers big results, capable of filtering a large amount of water before needing to be replaced.

As the Fill & Go Active Bottles are durable and the filters are long-lasting, they are eco-friendly and convenient, delivering a perfect solution to ensure students stay hydrated for increased health and wellness, and optimised academic performance.
