Elixir meaning ~ magical or medicinal potion.
Hydration is key to good health. Even when we are drinking plenty of water a day, sometimes we forget to take into consideration factors that may dehydrate us. Did you know for every cup of coffee we need an addition 250ml of water just to compensate the hydration? For every hour of exercise we need an additional 1LT of water! Plus if you are drinking this festive season, your hydration levels will definitely be comprimised.
If you are feeling a little dehydrated try this elixir, and boost your hydration levels.
Remember hydration is one of the keys to good health.
