      Water for Weight Loss: An Easy New Year’s Goal

      New Year Blog Hero

      New Year’s resolution time is here. We’ve all indulged more than we should have over the holiday season, and now it’s time for a little discipline so you can shed those extra pounds. The first thing you can do is one of the easiest—drink more water. Scientific studies suggest that increasing water intake can help you lose weight, and that’s a pretty simple way to help reach your goal.

      Refresh–Revitalize–Reduce

      Do you drink enough water? Chances are, you probably don’t. It makes up about 60% of our bodies. Every cell in your body needs water to function properly. Just keeping hydrated can make you healthier by kick starting your energy level and metabolism. Drinking plenty of water reduces bloating and water weight almost immediately, too, and that’s a very good start!

      Refresh yourself, revitalize your metabolism and reduce your body weight in 2018 by increasing your water intake. Scientific studies have indicated that drinking more water can really help you drop unwanted pounds when undertaken in combination with a sensible diet and physical exercise.

      Our Product Pick: 

      Discovery 40 oz. Large Capacity Hot or Cold Thermal Bottle - Black

      Discovery 40oz Large Capacity Hot or Cold Thermal Bottle

      This bottle packs a punch, allowing you to drink more and refill less. The 40 oz capacity will ensure you’re drinking enough water!

      Suppress that Appetite

      Drinking water actually acts as an appetite suppressant, according to at least two separate studies. The study conducted by the University of Washington found that drinking one 8 ounce glass of water eliminated cravings for midnight snacks in 98 percent of the subjects, thus decreasing their overall caloric intake. Another study in the The Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics found that its subjects who drank an extra 8 ounces of water a day ate 68 fewer calories; those who drank 24 extra ounces consumed 205 fewer calories, leading to an average weight loss of 1/2 pound per week! (Hey, this could really work!)

      Our Product Pick:

      Primula Sentinel Teal Fruit Infuser Water Bottle

      Primula Sentinel 22 oz. Infusion Water Bottle

      Take fresh, infused water on the go and make drinking water a little less boring! Make up a lemon infused water for an easy detox, or make a refreshing cucumber mint infused water for a refreshing drink after a long walk.

      Exercise + Water Equals Success

      For your New Year’s resolution, you’ll probably be adding exercise to your routine. When exercising, staying hydrated is even more important, and you’ll need a dependable water bottle with you during your trips to the gym or brisk walks around the neighborhood.

      How much water? The consensus suggests that 64 ounces per day should be plenty for most people—daily exercisers probably need a bit more. (Don’t overdo it, though—consuming too much water can be as unhealthy as not drinking enough.)

      Our Product Pick:

      Stash In Phone Storage Bottle - Black

      Primula Stash In Phone Storage Bottle

      Every gym goer’s dream- a bottle that allows you to carry your water, phone, cards, ID and more all in one hand. We’ve taken time to solve the age-old problem of toting too much stuff around the gym by combining a water bottle with a waterproof storage compartment to hold all your valuables.

      Juice it Up—Infuse it!

      If you don’t like the taste of plain water, or you get bored and crave more flavor, pump up the flavor volume by infusing your water with tasty, high nutrient fruits like strawberry, orange, mint, peach, melon—the possibilities are limitless. Get yourself a good infusion pitcher  that’s easy to use. Just add your sliced fruit to the infuser core and submerge in the water-filled pitcher. Let infuse overnight. (The Flavor-It 3-in-1 Pitcher even lets you replace the infuser with a chill core that makes your infusion cold fast.)

      Our Product Pick:

      Flavor It

      Primula Flavor It Pitcher 3-in-1 Beverage System

      Get creative with your water and make delicious, infused water with fruits and herbs for a natural, crisp flavor. The Flavor It comes with 3 MyBev cores, so you can brew tea, infuse water or chill prepared beverages in the pitcher with an easy change of the core.

      Final Point of Brew

      While we all have our goals that we love to achieve, don’t put too much pressure on yourself for weight loss results. As long as you’re feeling great and living a healthy lifestyle, the weight loss is just an added bonus.

      Here’s to a happy, hydrated and healthy 2018—let’s all drink to that!

Rooibos grows exclusively in the Cederberg Mountain region and around Clanwilliam and Citrusdal. During summer and early autumn, the branches are hand-harvested and cut into smaller pieces. The raw Rooibos is then moistened with water, thoroughly bruised, then placed in heaps and allowed to oxidize for 8 to 24 hours. After oxidation, the herb is spread out in a special yard to dry naturally in the sun. Cape Town Rooibos, our handcrafted blend of Superfine grade organic Rooibos with fragrant herbs, makes a sweet and refreshing golden-red brew.”

      • Catnip
      • Violet leaves
      • Vervain

      The most popular herbal ingredients for sleep

      1. Chamomile

      Chamomile is found in most bedtime teas, and has been used for centuries to cure ailments and aid with relaxation.

      Chamomile Tea

      Image Source: http://maxpixel.freegreatpicture.com/static/photo/1x/Medicine-Chamomile-Tee-Chamomile-Tea-Naturopathy-829487.jpg

      According to a published journal by Srivastava, Shakar and Gupta in the US National Library of Medicine and the National Institute of Health, “Traditionally, chamomile preparations such as tea and essential oil aromatherapy have been used to treat insomnia and to induce sedation (calming effects). Chamomile is widely regarded as a mild tranquillizer and sleep-inducer. Sedative effects may be due to the flavonoid, apigenin that binds to benzodiazepine receptors in the brain. Studies in preclinical models have shown anticonvulsant and CNS depressant effects respectively. Clinical trials are notable for their absence, although ten cardiac patients are reported to have immediately fallen into a deep sleep lasting for 90 minutes after drinking chamomile tea. ”

      Link to journal: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2995283/

      We’re still waiting on more studies to come forward that helps to prove chamomile as a sleep aid, but the feedback and results seen so far are looking pretty promising.

      2. Lavender

      Lavender is highly regarded as having anti-stress properties, which helps with sleep.

      How To Make Lavender Tea

      Image Source: http://www.healthline.com/hlcmsresource/images/topic_centers/Diet-weight-loss/642x361-How_to_Make_Lavender_Tea-2.jpg

      Based on a Medical Reference Guide published by the University of Maryland Medical Center, “In folklore, pillows were filled with lavender flowers to help restless people fall asleep. Scientific evidence suggests that aromatherapy with lavender may slow the activity of the nervous system, improve sleep quality, promote relaxation, and lift mood in people suffering from sleep disorders. Studies also suggest that massage with essential oils, particularly lavender, may result in improved sleep quality, more stable mood, better concentration, and reduced anxiety. In one study, people who received massage with lavender felt less anxious and more positive than those who received massage alone. Several small studies suggest that lavender aromatherapy may help reduce agitation in people with dementia. Lavender flowers have also been approved in Germany as a tea for insomnia, restlessness, and nervous stomach irritations.”

      Link to article: http://umm.edu/health/medical/altmed/herb/lavender

      So there you have it. Lavender, in many forms, is great for relaxation and sleep. When drinking lavender tea before bed, make sure to inhale some of the aromas to get the maximum benefit from it.

      3. Valerian

      Valerian is different than the other herbs and plants because it may take a bit- up to a few weeks- to feel the full effect.

      Valerian Tea

      Image Source: http://www.herbalteasonline.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Valerian-Tea-Images.jpg

      Article: https://www.herbalteasonline.com/valerian-tea.php

      Lifted from the University of Maryland Medical Center, “Valerian is a popular alternative to prescription medications for sleep problems because it is considered to be both safe and gentle. Some studies show that it helps people fall asleep faster and feel that they have a better quality of sleep. One of the best designed studies found that valerian was no more effective than placebo for 14 days, but by 28 days valerian greatly improved sleep for those who were taking it. Some researchers now think you may need to take valerian for a few weeks before it begins to work. However, in another study, valerian was more effective than placebo almost immediately. Other studies show that valerian reduces the time it takes to fall asleep and improves the quality of sleep. Unlike many prescription sleeping pills, valerian may have fewer side effects, such as morning drowsiness.”

      The use of valerian for insomnia is still highly debated, but many tea drinkers say that valerian is very effective for helping sleep.

      Final Point of Brew

      Though there are many herbs and plants that help you sleep, we hope this guide is a good reference to help relieve your inability to sleep or relax after a long day. Try pairing your bedtime tea with some light yoga or some meditation to really calm your body down for a good night’s rest. Make sure to clear your mind of anything that is bothering you so your wheels aren’t spinning deep into the night. Some of the best relief comes from the ability to just let some things go.

      The Difference Between Cold Brew Coffee and Iced Coffee

      The Difference Between Cold Brew Coffee and Iced Coffee

      Cold brew coffee is one of the biggest coffee trends these days, with swaths of people lining up to drink the delicious brew. A lot of people are unsure of the difference between cold brew coffee and iced coffee. We’re here to help sort out this whole iced coffee/cold brew situation.

      Iced coffee

      Iced coffee is just regular old hot brewed coffee that is cooled before adding ice to it. Iced coffee is more bitter than cold brew since it was brewed with hot water, and some even say the cooled down coffee weakens the taste.

      Cold brew coffee

      On the contrary, cold brew coffee is brewed without ever getting hot (hence ‘cold brew’). Grounds are mixed with room temperature or cold water and then strained after 12-24 hours of brewing. Many cold brew lovers brew on their countertops or in the refrigerator. The great thing about cold brew coffee is that it can be enjoyed hot or cold after brewing. Simply throw some ice in it for a cold brew iced coffee for those sweltering summer months, or throw it in the microwave for a hot cup of brew. Cold brew is brewed as a concentrate, and thus has 3 times the caffeine as traditional coffee.

      Since cold brew coffee is brewed with cold water instead of hot water, cold brew has more than 50% less acid than hot brewed coffee.

      Cold brew makers to make it a bit easier

      One of the biggest complaints about cold brew is the time and effort it takes to make. We’ve addressed that by bringing some pretty fantastically nifty products to market to make cold brew coffee.

      7 Coffee Maker Brewing Gadgets to Use While Camping

      Being outdoors in the summer is one of the simple pleasures in life. For some, there is no better way to relax than realigning with nature for a weekend (or week-long) camping trip.

      Just because there’s no electricity doesn’t mean you can’t have good coffee while on your camping adventures. Here are 10 products that will help you do the brew in a primitive environment.

      1. Coffee Brew Buddy

      The Coffee Brew Buddy is perfect for single cup servings, is easy to clean and is perfect for the pour over coffee addict.

      It’s compact, making it easy to bring along for backpackers, and it doesn’t require any additional filters, which means less waste.

      Simply heat your water over the campfire, load the Coffee Brew Buddy up with your favorite ground beans, and pour over into a cup.

       

      2. Tempo Coffee Press

       

      The Tempo Coffee Press is the perfect solution if you have a few people in the camping crew that can appreciate a good cup of coffee.

      The plastic cage in this coffee press is perfect for protecting the borosilicate glass while preparing, and the 6 cup capacity can serve more than one cup.

      It’s also easy to clean, just rinse it out and you’re good to go for the next brew.

      Add a tablespoon of coarse ground coffee for every 4 ounce cup, add some hot water, stir it up, wait 4 minutes for brewing, press the plunger down and then voila! Fresh brew in the woods.

       

      3. Aluminum Espresso Maker

       

      After a long night of roasting marshmallows and campfire stories, you may need an extra kick of caffeine in the morning. Enter the Aluminum Espresso Maker.

      Espresso makers pack a punch- small in size, but big on caffeine content. It’s compact and durable, making it easy to pack without taking up a lot of room. It also cuts down on tools needed, since the water and coffee go in this nifty little machine and are all brewed using this one item.

      Simply unscrew the top, remove the filter funnel, fill the bottom half of the espresso maker with water, fill the filter funnel with your choice of coffee, screw the espresso maker back together, and heat the espresso maker on a propane stove until coffee bubbles on top.

      Our espresso makers are available in a variety of sizes, so you can choose one that will suit your needs!

       

      4. Cold Brew + Travel 20 oz. Glass Bottle with Sleeve

       

      As much as we love camping, sometimes it can be too hot to enjoy a hot cup of brew in the sweltering summer months. Luckily, there’s cold brew for that.

      The Cold Brew + Travel Bottle is the perfect solution for coffee on-the-go and this bottle makes it easy to brew and enjoy all from one sleek container. The neoprene sleeve keeps your cold brew cold, while also protecting the glass from getting damaged.

      Simply unscrew the bottom, put your choice of coffee ¾ of the way full in the stainless steel filter, screw the bottom back on, flip it over, and fill the bottle with cool water. Let the coffee brew for 12-24 hours (so make it the night before) and remove the filter before enjoying. Add creamer (or cream substitute), sugar and ice to taste and enjoy the best iced coffee!

       

       

      5. Cold Brew + Go 22 oz. Tritan™ Bottle

       

      Similar to the glass Cold Brew + Travel bottle, this cold brew bottle makes enjoying cold brew on-the-go a breeze.

      The flip top lid makes it easy to drink from, even while enjoying a morning hike, and the carry loop is perfect for attaching to your backpack. The double locking lid and durable Tritan plastic make it easy to pack and use without getting damaged.

      Simply unscrew the bottom, fill the stainless steel filter ¾ of the way full, return the bottle to its upright position, and fill the bottle with cool water. Let the coffee brew for 12-24 hours, and remove the filter before enjoying.

       

      6. 9 Cup Aluminum Percolator

       

      Primula’s 9 cup Percolator delivers piping hot percolated coffee from your campfire. In fact, one benefit of a percolator is the ability to brew coffee from practically any heat source as long as you have a flat surface to place your pot on. This is one reason why many campers and travelers prefer percolators over electric coffee makers or breakable glass presses and pots.

      A coffee percolator works by taking the heated liquid from your coffee grounds and reheating it and running it over the grounds repeatedly. The effect of a percolator repeatedly passing coffee over the grounds delivers a significantly different flavor and strength than traditional French presses or automatic drip makers. Many say it produces smoother tasting coffee. Percolators emit a robust aroma and a distinct gurgling sound while brewing. It is extremely convenient when making coffee you want to stay piping hot for large gatherings. Primula’s percolator is made of durable aluminum and features a matching lid, lipped spout and stay-cool black plastic handle. It holds 36 oz, enough for 9 cups of coffee.

       

       7. FlavorUp Pitcher Infusion and Cold Brew System

       

      Have a group of coffee lovers joining you on your camping trip? This may be the solution for you.

      The FlavorUp pitcher is made of durable Tritan plastic, allowing you to use it in an outdoor setting without worrying about breaking.

      The FlavorUp pitcher can brew 2.7 quarts of cold brew deliciousness using the Brew Core, featuring a superfine stainless steel mesh to keep loose tea (yes, we said tea) or coffee grounds inside.

      An added bonus to the FlavorUp is that it also comes with a Flavor Infuser Core, so when you’re not brewing coffee, you can make infused water or tea by adding fresh fruit or herbs to the infuser. We recommend letting the FlavorUp brew for 24 hours if you’re making coffee, based on the amount of cold brew it’s making.

       

      Final Point of Brew

      So when you’re packing up for a backpacking trip or a primitive weekend with your pals, make sure to bring along one of these camping coffee gadgets to give you a morning kicker after a long night of roasting marshmallows and you’ll be one happy camper.
