How to use the Oral Rehydration Salts

Preparing the Solution

  1. Add 2 tablets to 200ml of drinking water.
  2. Wait for the tablets to fully dissolve. You can stir if necessary.


  • Adults and Children (6 years and over): Drink 200ml (equivalent to 2 tablets) whenever you need to boost your body's fluid levels.
  • Children (3-6 years): Provide 10ml of the solution per kg of the child's weight. Offer in small sips each time hydration is needed.
  • Sports Usage for Adults: For exercise purposes, mix 1-2 tablets with 500ml of water. Consume both during and post-exercise.


  • This product serves as a supplement and is not a substitute for a balanced diet or healthy lifestyle.
  • If you have conditions like diabetes, or if you're on a low sodium or potassium diet, or if you have issues related to liver, kidney, or intestinal obstruction, please seek advice from a healthcare professional before use.
  • Prepared solutions should not be stored for more than 8 hours outside of a refrigerator. If chilled, it can be kept for up to 24 hours.
  • Do not consume beyond the recommended dose. For adults, this means no more than 24 tablets within 24 hours and for children, a maximum of 10 tablets within the same period, following guidelines.


  • Keep in a cool place, below 25°C, shielded from heat and dampness.
  • Store out of the sight and reach of children.
  • Ensure the tube is securely sealed. Do not use past its expiry date (check the base for this information).

When to Seek Medical Assistance

While O.R.S Oral Rehydration Salts are designed to efficiently enhance your hydration, there are instances when professional medical intervention becomes crucial:

  • Unresolved Symptoms: If dehydration signs persist or worsen after using the product, it's essential to consult a healthcare professional promptly.
  • Unexpected Reactions: Any unusual physical reactions after consumption, such as persistent nausea, dizziness, or any allergic reactions, necessitate immediate medical attention.
  • Underlying Conditions: Individuals with diabetes, or those on specific diets like low sodium or potassium, and those with liver, kidney, or intestinal concerns should always seek advice before using O.R.S.
  • Exceeding Dosage: If you've inadvertently consumed more than the recommended dose (24 tablets for adults or 10 tablets for children within 24 hours), it's vital to reach out to a healthcare provider.

Remember, while O.R.S is a beneficial supplement, it doesn't replace the expert advice and intervention of medical professionals in certain scenarios. Always prioritise your health and safety.

Are Oral Rehydration Salts Safe for Children?

Oral rehydration therapy (ORT) is not only safe for children, but it's also frequently recommended to combat dehydration caused by diarrhoea in the young. Children, due to their higher metabolic rate, are particularly susceptible to dehydration. This fast-paced metabolism means they process water rapidly. Compounded by their potential inability to recognise thirst or self-hydrate, their risk is elevated.

Various factors, such as burns, intense sweating, or insufficient water consumption, can amplify this dehydration risk.

It's not just children who benefit from ORT. Older individuals and those with certain medical conditions, owing to their heightened risk of dehydration, can also find solace in ORS.

For the generally healthy adult with mild diarrhoea, while ORS is safe, it might be superfluous. They often find adequate hydration from water, clear broths, or electrolyte-rich sports drinks.
