We all know just how important it is to stay hydrated, yet past research has suggested that some British people aren't drinking any water at all.

If you fall into that category, or if you'd like to increase your intake, there's no time like the present.

According to the NHS, we should "drink six to eight cups or glasses of fluid a day. Water, lower-fat milk and sugar-free drinks, including tea and coffee, all count".

You may want to consider drinking a little more during a heatwave or after working out, too.

Your body is going to thank you for it. Drinking more water has numerous health benefits, from helping to boost your immune system, to being beneficial to our skin and overall health.

From weight loss to eye health the benefits of chugging water are endless, but if you need a bit more motivation to get hydrated, these BPA-free water bottles will help you make a habit of it.
