The word “elixir” refers to past ages. Elixirs means “philosopher’s stone” and at first it alluded to a chemical compound which, when applied to metals, would have to magically transform them into pure gold. The extraordinary abilities that the term “elixir” evokes, have made it synonymous, in more recent times, of products with exceptional healing properties, prodigiously capable of giving man a dream: a long and healthy life.
