For over 50 years, Pedialyte® has been helping people recover from challenging episodes of dehydration. Use Pedialyte® when you or your little one experiences:
Regardless of the cause, dehydration can make someone who isn’t feeling well feel even worse. Rehydrating with Pedialyte® can help anyone — adults and kids — feel better fast.
Pedialyte® is the #1 pediatrician-recommended brand. Unlike other beverages you or your little one may drink more regularly such as, juice, sodas, and sports drinks, Pedialyte® meets medical guidelines for helping to prevent dehydration.* Juice, sodas, and sports drinks are too low in sodium, an important electrolyte that’s lost due to dehydration caused by diarrhea, vomiting, sweating, and excessive urination.
Those household beverages that are too low in sodium are often also too high in sugar, and too much sugar can make diarrhea worse. This can lead to more dehydration if you or your little one is already experiencing the severe diarrhea that often comes with the stomach flu or food poisoning.
No matter what challenging moment causes you or your child’s dehydration, Pedialyte® can help you feel better fast with hydration backed by advanced science.
Water is great for replacing fluids, but when you or your little one is facing more challenging episodes of dehydration, it’s really important to replace electrolytes, too. Our bodies need a balance of fluids and electrolytes to work the way they’re supposed to. Pedialyte® has the optimal balance of sugar and electrolytes you or your child needs for fast rehydration.
Zinc is an important nutrient that can’t be stored in the body. Therefore, its level is determined by food intake (it is found in foods such as meat, shellfish, nuts, and legumes), absorption, and losses (such as diarrhea). When you have vomiting and diarrhea, you are not eating as well and are losing more nutrients than usual. This may decrease your zinc level. Zinc plays a role in the intestinal absorption of water and electrolytes, helps maintain immune function, and may help reduce the severity and duration of diarrhea.
There’s a balance of both 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 digestive system and help restore the balance between good and bad bacteria. Pedialyte® AdvancedCareTM contains PreActivTM prebiotics in the form of galactooligosaccharides (GOS). GOS are a type of fibre that helps stimulate the growth of good bacteria in the large intestine, thus helping promote digestive health.
