    Rene i make it the night before two big teaspoons in warm water not hot, if you make it with piping hot water to take away all the goodness, so the water only needs to be warm enough to desolve the Honey. Rene you can also add a touch of lemon juice to it as well

    yes, give it a try rene, ive heard a lot of fanciers give it for when they come home from racing.........think i will be using it when the yb season starts or maybe electrolytes, i havnt decided yet but they do need something to help them recover when they get home,p.s. some use glucose so ive heard.....?
