Sometimes water just isn’t enough

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.

Pedialyte® contains zinc. What is zinc and what are its benefits?

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:

  • It plays a role in the intestinal absorption of water and electrolytes.
  • It helps reduce the severity and duration of diarrhea.
  • It helps maintain immune function.

Pedialyte® AdvancedCare® Plus and Pedialyte® AdvancedCare® have PreActiv® prebiotics. What can they do?

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.
