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
