Why choose Gastrolyte?

Gastrolyte rehydration preparations contain a balanced solution of glucose and electrolytes. They have been carefully formulated to help replace fluids and electrolytes lost due to dehydrating illnesses such as diarrhoea, vomiting, fever, colds and flu. These formulas are easy to take and prepare anywhere. They are suitable for travellers and adults or children suffering from mild dehydration.

How does Gastrolyte rehydrate quickly?

Dehydration is caused by significant loss of body water and important electrolytes due to vomiting and/or diarrhoea, excessive perspiration and decreased fluid intake. Gastrolyte replenishes lost fluid and electrolytes for rapid rehydration and recovery.

What makes Gastrolyte different from other soft drinks, juices and sports drinks?

Gastrolyte contains more electrolytes including sodium and less sugar than soft drinks, juices and sports drinks. Gastrolyte has been specially formulated for dehydration with an appropriate balance of glucose and electrolytes.

Is Gastrolyte suitable for pregnant or lactating women?

Gastrolyte is suitable for pregnant and lactating women. However, pregnant or lactating women with gastroenteritis (gastro) should seek specialist medical advice.

Is Gastrolyte suitable for children?

Yes, Gastrolyte has been specially formulated to treat fluid and electrolyte loss associated with acute dehydration in all members of the family including infants (over 5kg in weight) and children. Gastrolyte ready to drink pop-tops are available that are ideal for kids. Check the information on the pack for correct infant and child dosage instructions. Seek medical advice if diarrhoea persists for more than six hours in infants less than 6 months, 12 hours in children aged 6 months to 3 years, 24 hours in children aged 3 to 6 years and 48 hours in children over 6 years of age.
