As we spend longer at home than ever before, it’s increasingly important to seek out new ways to keep your fitness and nutrition on track. Added screen time coupled with a lack of routine and fresh air means you may be experiencing headaches, irritability, and a loss in your attention span – but these are actually common symptoms of dehydration.
Caused by many activities in your daily life such as sitting in a hot room, tackling a lunchtime workout or enjoying a morning latte (or evening cocktail!), dehydration can have a huge impact on the body – and it’s something that we all experience, even sports stars.

Research shows that only 1 in 10 Britons are consuming enough water to be adequately hydrated*, and dipping just 1% below the optimal level can have an immediate affect on your attention span, memory and ability to focus or perform. A recent survey of UK GPs** found that 20% of visits are triggered by symptoms of tiredness and fatigue, with one in ten of these directly due to dehydration.
So, what can we do to avoid it? The human body is made up of 60% water, with the brain composed of over 80%. We lose 2-3 litres of water a day which must be replaced in order to function normally. Luckily there’s an easy way to stay focused, energised and hydrated with the super affordable Phizz 2-in-1 multivitamin hydration tablets (from £4.99). Loved by leading sports stars, you can bet that these tablets are the real deal.
Scientifically formulated to be the most comprehensive delivery of hydration, vitamins and minerals in tablet form – Phizz is a water multiplier, helping your body absorb up to 3 times more water than drinking water alone. A mix of 19 essential vitamins and minerals including B and C plus zinc and folic acid help replenish the 5 key electrolytes lost through sweat – sodium, potassium, chloride, magnesium and calcium – while potassium also improves muscle function. Ideal for post-workout use, Phizz is used by more than 50 Pro sports teams in the Premier League, including former Championship winners Liverpool and Leeds. Yes, really!

As well as improving energy, hydration and your immune system, we love that Phizz is vegan friendly and halal plus dairy, gluten and soy free. It contains only natural colours and flavours. The brand consider themselves ‘plastic positive’ – meaning for each tube of Phizz sold, 6 times its weight in plastic is collected, recycled and prevented from entering the ocean – that’s 1 million plastic bottles per year! Plus all Phizz tubes are recyclable with the secondary packaging made from recyclable card and recycled materials.
An effervescent tablet dissolved in water, you can take Phizz as a daily vitamin supplement or whenever you feel like you need a boost of hydration. It’ll help you recover from late nights, long days or generally perk you up when you’re feeling run down. The recommended dose is 2 tablets dissolved in 300ml of water per day, with a maximum of 4 tables to be consumed within 24 hours.
