Why should kids take electrolytes?

Children have a lower heat tolerance than adults making them more susceptible to dehydration and they can often forget to drink enough water, increasing the risk of dehydration. Sweating caused by hot weather and sickness are reasons why children might lose water and salts making them feel sluggish, unwell and dehydrated. Electrolyte solutions like O.R.S Hydration Tablets help to combat these symptoms by: Replacing salts and minerals lost and restoring the fluids lost. Helping your little ones to hydrate faster and stay hydrated for longer than water alone.

When should kids take ORS?

Electrolytes can help kids to rehydrate quickly when they are feeling under the weather, with a tummy bug or sickness and diarrhoea. ORS solutions are also perfect when playing sports, when it’s hot, while travelling or even as a healthy alternative to juice.

How do O.R.S Hydration Tablets work?

When we combine electrolytes, potassium, chloride and potassium with a small amount of glucose we create the perfect conditions for rehydration.
