Can healthy people drink OS-1?

OS-1 oral rehydration solution is a beverage that can rapidly replenish water and electrolytes (sodium and other salts which are lacking when a person is dehydrated), as advocated for oral hydration therapy of mild to moderate dehydration in circumstances such as the following.
Healthy people can drink OS-1, but it will not make them any healthier.

  • Dehydration associated with diarrhea, vomiting, or fever due to infectious enteritis or the common cold
  • Dehydration due to inadequate oral intake in the elderly
  • Dehydration due to excessive perspiration
  • OS-1 Jelly should be used by people with trouble chewing or swallowing
