Powdered Drink for Power: Luna Elixir

Sometimes a gal just wants to drink her vitamins while she hydrates her continually thirsty body. I think this healthy multitasking must be the reason that makers of the tasty Luna bar created the Luna Elixir, a powdered drink mix. It is convenient - packaged in individual serving sizes, and easy. Just pour the contents into your water bottle, shake it up and drink. Follow the flavor meter on back of the packet to determine how sweet you want your drink, sweeter means add less water (8 ounces). I prefer mine less sweet so I add 16 ounces of water.

The drinks come in four flavors: Raspberry Lychee, Orange Passionfruit (my personal fave), Pomegranate Berry, and Dragonfruit Kiwi. Each drink package contains only 50 calories, plus 15 essential vitamins and minerals important for women's health. Calcium for bones and teeth plus Vitamin D to help absorb it. Magnesium for bone, heart and immune system health. The antioxidants Vitamins A, C, E as well as zinc, folic acid (important if you are planning on getting pregnant soon or already are), and iron. Supplements in liquid form are easier for your body to metaboize than supplements in pill form, so there's the bonus for drinking them. I try to drink Elixir instead of having a second cup of coffee in the morning - all the B vitamins seem to give me a nice energy boost.

The mix is 70% organic and contains no artificial sweeteners, although it does have 11 grams of sugar. You can purchase a box of 15 individual servings for $16.95 from Luna directly. Or use their handy

For a long time I was pretty skeptical about all those quick energy drinks that look like some cosmos-food but recently I trued one before my training since I couldn't eat. It worked.

Has anyone tried Ultima Replenisher? Sounds good and has no sugar - they sell it at my yoga studio and I am planning on trying once I run out of EmergenC.
