When your body loses water and electrolytes—through illness, exercise or exposure to heat or extreme cold—you need to replace those essential elements. Water, sugary drinks, juices, energy drinks, coconut water and other non-medical solutions often fail to rehydrate or actually worsen dehydration. The best and most rapid remedy for mild to moderate dehydration, which is recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO), is a careful balance of sugar, salts, and water that contains significantly more electrolytes (specifically sodium) and less sugar than sports drinks or other popular hydrating beverages.
Drip Drop is an advanced form of this Oral Rehydration Solution (ORS) with great taste and half the calories (sugar) and twice the electrolytes of conventional sports drinks.
An optimal balance of sugar, salts and water facilitates the body’s natural mechanisms for absorbing water and essential electrolytes. This sodium/glucose cotransport system is so effective at pulling water and sodium into the body through active pathways in the small intestine that it is considered one of the most important medical discoveries of the last century. (According to a leading medical journal, THE LANCET).
Healthy individuals can take advantage of the same mechanisms to replace fluids and electrolytes lost through sweating from heat, exercise or other causes. For illnesses that promote dehydration through vomiting or diarrhea, Drip Drop taken orally can save trips to the emergency room. In clinical settings, oral rehydration therapy even outperforms intravenous drip therapy (drip IV) in many instances.
