 This Vitamin water contains vitmains A,C, and K, Folate (which unlike folic acid, is actually what your body needs for healthy childbearing and brain function), Calcium, Potassium, Magnesium (a natural way to keep your plumbing moving), Phosphorus, and more!!

Here's what you need:

2 quarts filtered water

1/2 cucumber

4 mint leaves

1/2 lemon sliced (you can do more if you love lemon like me)

2" Ginger root (diced)

This water can help you feel refreshed and revived without any of the chemicals and sugars found in store bought vitamin waters. (those waters actually contian extremely harmful chemicals in many cases as well as insane amounts of sugar)

You need to filter is as you pour and I recomend making it the night before you want to start drinking it. I drink one glass per day. I personally don't like this first thing in the morning as its a bit strong.

It is. Its wonderful, but just a tad strong. You can actually use the same ingredients twice. Then dump everything and make new. :)

Does adding the extra lemon cut down on how strong it is? I like lemon in my water so I will add it either way!

 yes i think it helps. :) you can also do less ginger. i'm sure it messes witht he amounts of vitamins you get, but i figure some is better than none if you can't stomach the normal dose.
