Water You Know? Proper Hydration Delivers Array of Benefits Latest Hydration Research Findings Revealed (IMP INFO For everyone including Freshers & School Children hydration improves brain performance!) >> www.thebigbottleco.co.uk

FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM

Correct hydration levels have long been the topic of extensive debate but what are the real benefits of ensuring a healthy water intake each day? The Big Bottle Company, creators of 2.2l water bottles, commissioned a hydration survey, in association with St Mary’s University, Twickenham, to find out.

The research, involving 100 Londoners, took place over 24 hours between 7th and 8th August. Participants were asked to do a home urine test and take a survey at 3pm on day one then, over the course of the next 24 hours, ensured they consumed at least two litres of water (widely recognized as the optimum average volume) before taking a second urine test and survey.

Those surveyed were representative of both genders as well as a wide range of ages and lifestyles; people who drank the recommended amount of water reported the following

-84% saw an increase in concentration levels

-81% perceived their energy levels to be higher

-36% stated their skin felt more hydrated

-20% recorded improved sleep quality

Additionally, urine test results were reported to be significantly better – meaning less strain on vital organs – and the participants said they felt significantly happier in their reporting for the second survey.

Prof John Brewer, the hydration expert who oversaw the research, explained ‘The topic of hydration is surrounded by as much myth as fact but every piece of scientific research – including this one –  unequivocally shows that drinking over two litres of water each day does you a huge amount of good.’

Rene Maddelena, General Manager of the Big Bottle Co, added ‘While our bottles are a fun and colourful way to keep track of your hydration, we wanted to gain real life examples of the direct benefits of doing something as simple as drinking enough water each day. So many of our fans have already experienced the increased health and wellbeing and these results confirm what we have been seeing and hearing. The Big Bottle lifestyle really is a low cost option to healthy living.’

Having only launched in the UK in April, the brand is proving a big success, with fans including Chloe Madeley, Emily Clarkson, Lucy Mountain and Gail Porter.

Zeek it: sell unwanted gift vouchers for cash with the Zeek app

Brits waste over £1bn every year on unused or lost gift vouchers and cards

Zeek is an innovative app that provides the answer to unwanted and unused gifts. Available on App Store and Google Play, the free app is a marketplace for selling and buying gift vouchers, exchanging cards for cash.

Zeek is the ideal app for the 47% of UK consumers that receive more than one gift card a year, half of which never get used – resulting in £1bn worth of wasted and unused credit. Zeek enables people to turn this problem into cash by easily selling the gift cards they know they won’t use – before they expire.

And for gift givers, it’s just as simple. Zeek allows purchasers to buy gift cards at discounted rates using the app or the website. With an average of a 10% discount per gift card or voucher, Zeek not only saves you money but means you can avoid hitting the crowded stores and spend more time enjoying the summer sun.

With Zeek, selling vouchers is quick, safe and secure. Simply scan a gift card or voucher through the app using a smart phone camera and add it directly to the platform to sell it electronically within days. 94% of vouchers sell within 24 hours, with Amazon vouchers holding the record time of only 5 seconds.

Daniel Zelkind, Co-founder of Zeek says: “The Zeek app solves a problem that we’ve all experienced – being given gift cards or vouchers that we would never use.

“By creating Zeek, we’re allowing people to earn real money for something that would go unused or ultimately expire. The mobile app is incredibly quick and simple to use, and everything can be handled directly from your phone.

Whether selling or shopping or wanting to make ‘quick cash’, Zeek is any easy to use app that’s perfect for everyone all year round.”

Zeek is available to download from the App Store and Google play now

As summer draws to a close, those heading off to university have a lot to think about. Between making friends, settling in a new town, working out which lectures to go to and picking up as many freebies as possible, there’s a lot to juggle and plenty to forget.

One important thing you might not have thought of is how you’re going to get around. If you’re taking a car up for your first term, along with parking and petrol to think about, you’ll need insurance. And if you don’t have a car, but plan to borrow a friend or family member’s for that first supermarket shop or road trip, you’ll also need to be suitably insured.

However, car insurance is getting more and more expensive – it has risen by 11% in the last year alone. These rising costs are hitting young drivers especially hard, so for those who only drive once or twice a week, or less, it’s worth thinking about alternative insurance options.

Cuvva is the UK’s first ever car insurance app and operates on a pay-as-you-go basis, perfect for when you need to borrow a car. You can get insured for as little as an hour up to 28 days and it only takes three minutes to sign up and get comprehensively insured. It’s all done via the app, so there is no need to spend ages waiting on hold.

The idea for Cuvva came about after the founders were frustrated that they could order a taxi or takeaway straight from their phone but it was such a hassle to get insured on someone else’s car for a short period. With Cuvva you get insured for as little as an hour in a matter of seconds.

Student Insurance
by Dr Matthew Connell, Director, Policy and Public Relations at The Chartered Insurance Institute

Heading off to university or college is an exciting time and for most students it’s likely to be the first time you’ve managed your own finances. While you’re budgeting for the student union bar and chilli cook-ups, it’s also essential to factor in the cost of some contents insurance in case your possessions are stolen or damaged.
What sort of cover is available?
You can either buy a standalone home contents policy or some insurers will add a student to a parent or guardian’s home contents policy.
Specialist standalone student insurance policies are offered by a number of insurers – including the NUS’s recommended provider, Endsleigh. The cover is tailored to the needs of students. Policy prices will depend on your age, your university’s location and the level of cover you go for. Policies have a set limit on the value of a single item that the insurance company will cover as standard, so it’s best to check it’s sufficient.
You may find the items you head off to university with are already covered on your parents’ home insurance policy (free to you!). So it’s worth checking what you’re already insured for instead of duplicating with a standalone policy. Not all insurers include this cover automatically – your parents may have to ask for it and the level of cover varies depending on the policy, and may require an additional payment. Read the small print carefully to make sure there are no exclusions that could leave you without protection. For example, you may only be covered for theft involving a break in – not helpful if you live in shared accommodation. It’s important to note that any claims you make will impact on your parents’ claims history and may result in increased premiums.
Do you really need insurance?
Students often own smartphones, iPads or tablets and MP3 players which mean their total belongings can easily add up to a sizeable amount of money. Unfortunately, this makes students easy pickings for thieves. So unless you can easily afford to buy new stuff, insurance is a must.
