When you get sick, or experience heavy sweating, due to hot or dry environment, vigorous/prolonged exercise or fever, the essential minerals and electrolytes lost due to diarrhea, vomiting and heavy sweating can’t be replaced by water alone. Restore your body’s natural fluids and electrolytes with Electrolyte Gastro®, a balanced solution effective for the prevention and treatment of dehydration due to diarrhea, vomiting or heavy sweating in adults and children.
Available in a convenient single-serving sachet format that makes it easy to keep handy whether at home or on the go.
Electrolyte Gastro® is available in two flavours: Orange and Tropical Punch.
The following is a general guide. Health Care Professionals may provide different regimens. Each carton of 8 sachets provides 8 x 200 mL servings. Electrolyte Gastro® should be given in small, frequent and slowly administered amounts, until thirst is satisfied.
