Oral Rehydration Solutions (ORS) are a scientific breakthrough that treat and prevent dehydration for millions of people worldwide.
ORS are a balanced glucose-electrolyte mixture first used in 1969 and approved, recommended, and distributed by UNICEF (United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund) and WHO (World Health Organisation) as a treatment for clinical dehydration throughout the world.
Containing a precise ratio of electrolytes including sodium, potassium, and magnesium, ORS continues to be one of the most successful medical breakthroughs in the world.
For instance, diarrhoea, and resulting dehydration, is the #2 cause of preventable death globally for children under 5. Thanks in a large part to ORS, the number of diarrhoea-related deaths in the last decade has dropped by 54%, from 1.3 million in 2000 to 600,000 in 2013.
Yet, for such an effective and low-cost treatment, ORS remains under-utilised in the West. Most consumers have never heard of it, and physicians here haven’t embraced it fully.
DripDrop ORS’s patented formula provides medically relevant electrolyte levels consistent with WHO's ORS standards, but also tastes great! (Notably, sports drinks only contain about 1/3 the electrolytes of DripDrop ORS, and most contain too much sugar.)
By solving the taste problem, DripDrop ORS has made the most highly effective oral hydration solution known to medical science practical for use by anyone who finds themselves with a hydration need where water and sports drinks just aren’t enough.
