Pedialyte® helps prevent dehydration and restore fluids, electrolytes, and zinc.‡
Pedialyte® is scientifically formulated with the optimal balance of sugar and sodium electrolytes§ needed to help replenish fluids and electrolytes, the loss of which can lead to dehydration.
For over 50 years, Pedialyte® has been helping kids and adults prevent and recover from challenging episodes of dehydration.
Use Pedialyte® to rehydrate or prevent dehydration from:
Sports drinks, juice, and soda are too low in sodium, an important electrolyte that’s lost in cases of dehydration. Often, these beverages are also too high in sugar.
Did you know? Too much sugar can make diarrhea worse, leading to more dehydration.
Our bodies need a balance of fluids and electrolytes to work properly. When your body has an electrolyte imbalance, it doesn’t absorb fluids like it should. That’s why it’s really important to replace electrolytes when you’re facing challenging†† episodes of dehydration.
Pedialyte® is scientifically designed for fast, effective rehydration to help you feel better, fast.
Zinc is an important nutrient that can’t be stored in the body. This means zinc levels are determined by food intake, absorption, and losses (such as diarrhea). Zinc is found in foods such as meat, shellfish, nuts, and legumes.
Zinc benefits the body in the following ways:
There’s a balance of good and bad bacteria in your body. When you have diarrhea, that balance is disrupted. That’s where prebiotics come in! Prebiotics are a source of fuel for the good bacteria in your gut and can help restore the balance between good and bad bacteria.
† Oral rehydration solution category.
‡ Only the 1-L format contains zinc.
§ For dehydration due to vomiting and diarrhea.
¶ For causes of dehydration other than vomiting and diarrhea, consult a health care professional for directions for use.
