Vivalyte: Delicious Drink to Maintain Good Hydration 


It’s a pain for parents to see their child get sick, especially when kids suddenly lose their vigor out of dehydration.  Losing fluids more than what the body takes in can lead to serious complications. In babies and children, mild to moderate dehydration can easily happen, particularly if the child has diarrhea or is vomiting.

When my daughter had diarrhea, the first thing I did was to make her drink plenty of water and eat food high in water like fruits and vegetables.  But since she really felt weak, I knew that she needed more than just water to energize her body.  So I made her take oral rehydration salts (ORS) to replace fluid and electrolytes.  Sadly, my daughter was not a fan of the taste of the ORS I bought.  It was stressful to see my child feeling so sick and trying to endure the unpleasant taste of electrolyte solution.



Good thing I learned about Vivalyte, an electrolyte drink manufactured by Taisho Pharmaceuticals.  It’s a delicious drink that helps maintain good hydration.  I didn’t have a hard time at all making her take this rehydration solution.
