Electrolytes such as calcium (Ca2+), sodium (Na+), chloride (CI-) and magnesium (Mg2+) play a crucial role in our physiology. Both muscle tissue and neurons are considered electric tissues of the body. Muscles and neurons are activated by electrolyte activity, thus, Electrolyte balance is vital for our function.

Toss all ingredients into a blender and blend well until the honey and salt are well dissolved.

Make sure you blend all ingredients well, until the honey and salt are completely dissolved. You can store the drink in an air tight glass bottle (preferably) in the fridge for up to 2 days (This is a good time to use those fancy Mason Jars). If stored, shake well prior to drinking.
