TRIORAL - Oral Rehydration Salts ORS (15, One Liter Packets/Box) World Health Organization (WHO) New Formula for Food Poisoning, Hangovers, Diarrhea, Electrolyte Replacement

WHO Approved Reduced Osmolarity Oral Rehydration Salts 20.5g/0.72 oz Powder Packet. (NEW FORMULA). Manufactured according to Pharmaceutical Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). The new improved formula is the result of extensive research sponsored by WHO’s Department of Child and Adolescent Health and Development and supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). What exactly are TRIORAL Oral Rehydration Salts (ORS)? TRIORAL ORS are effective, inexpensive, safe and convenient packets of pre-formulated salts/ sugar when mixed with water will rehydrate your body fast, regardless of the cause. Each TRIORAL ORS packet is a sealed, pre-measured and pre-formulated powder that contains: Glucose anhydrous 13.5g, Trisodium Citrate Dehydrate 2.9g, Sodium Chloride 2.6g and Potassium Chloride 1.5g. How does TRIORAL ORS work and why are these electrolytes important? This combination of electrolytes with glucose optimizes efficient absorption via the intestinal tract. With TRIORAL ORS both the active transport of glucose and diffusion of salts/water through the intestinal lining are at work– so you rehydrate fast. Dehydration may occur unexpectedly and rapidly as a result of excessive fluid loss due to sweating, urination, fever, etc. When the body is depleted of critical salts and water, severe dehydration many ensue, resulting in acute medical emergencies. How should I take the TRIORAL ORS packets? Empty completely one TRIORAL ORS packet into one liter of water. Only open the sealed packet when you are ready to mix with water and drink it. Since it contains NO artificial sweeteners or flavoring agents, at your discretion, you can squeeze a lemon, lime or orange to taste. If recommended by a physician, pharmacist or other health professional, follow his/her instructions.

    Last year, I said goodbye to things like Pedialyte when I found NormaLyte (various flavors available: NormaLyte Oral Rehydration Salts). Then, recently I found this Trioral product. It’s the same WHO rehydration formula as is in NormaLyte, but it is noticeably cheaper and doesn’t have any added flavor (so if you’re really concerned about the taste of this or are just looking for some backup packets to have handy but not use regularly, then I recommend looking at NormaLyte).

    Now, the lack of flavor is a plus for some folks and a negative for others. This stuff tastes like a mildly salty but strongly mineralized water–as you might imagine. Sure, it’s not a great taste. It’s strong, but not as strong as I expected given its power. Of course, given the price, if I couldn’t stomach it plain, I’d just find my own way to make it palatable by mixing it with a flavorful drink. Just know that if you add it to something with sugars or minerals, you may affect the ability of your body to assimilate the nutrients as rapidly — probably not too much, though. Sometimes, I used to mix it with iced tea, which really masked the flavors. Then someone pointed out to me, though, that tea is a diuretic. So, that could conteract the hydrating effect to a degree. Another reviewer suggested adding some lemon juice to help the flavor. I tried that, too, and it’s amazing how it masks the minerals — it’s hardly any different tasting than plain lemon water. So, with a little individual experimenting, there are probably easy ways around the flavor if it that’s really an issue for you. My thought is that most people who really need this stuff are not in a position to be too choosy–it’s way better to guzzle a bit than to be feeling the effects of serious dehydration. If you’re not someone with a special condition, dehydrated, or doing serious sweating but rather are just looking for something to keep up electrolyte levels, though, you should probably opt for a weaker product like LYTEshow (LyteShow – Electrolyte Concentrate for Rapid Rehydration – 40 Servings (With Magnesium, Potassium, Zinc)) or (if you want sweet) Trace Minerals Power Paks (comes in a variety of flavors – Trace Minerals Research Electrolyte Stamina Power Pak, Concorde Grape, 32 Count) — both work as a daily aid, though I prefer LYTEshow.

    This Trioral, however, is an excellent product for heavy-duty dehydration and electrolyte depletion. I’ve used it during and after runs in triple-digit Texas summer afternoons. It really helps me recover fast so I can go out day after day to run. Once, I didn’t take a packet since I didn’t feel I needed it after a summer run. But the next day I completely bonked on my run and could tell my electrolytes were seriously depleted. It took all night to recover, and Trioral really helped. Additionally, my sister-in-law used it to rehydrate when she started having contractions three months too soon and found out she was dehydrated (the hospital helped her out initially, but then I pointed her to this which finished pulling her out of her dehydrated state). She’s actually a dietitian and concurred that the WHO formula is pretty spot on. I’ve had other family members who probably had gotten dehydrated–they were feeling a bit woozy, foggy, having headaches, etc.–and after drinking a fraction of a one-liter mix started feeling much better within half an hour. My wife has used this after getting food poisoning, and it quickly brought her back to normal after her body had flushed the bad stuff out.

    I’ve not used this for alcohol dehydration, and I don’t drink much, but what I have used for warding off alcohol dehydration and for general consumption throughout the day, especially during summer is the LYTEshow referenced above. It’s a low sodium lower-strength electrolyte concentrate made to be mixed with water. So I use that to help keep my electrolytes up without overloading the sodium since I use sea salt daily on my food. And I use the Trioral for when I’m already in a bad way or know that I’m headed out to do some serious sweating. I’ve found that if I take this product before I’m actually feeling dehydrated, it helps me recover much more quickly and not feel as poorly. Sometimes when I’ve thought that I felt fine after a summer run and chose not to take it, I’ve realized afterward that I made the wrong choice.

    Also, if you only want a partial packet, there are just over 5 teaspoons of powder in a packet. So use about 6 ounces of water per teaspoon and you can make a…

    A great addition to your day pack or first aid kit to help re-energize you when dehydration sets in. We live in the Rockies, where we enjoy outdoor pursuits at elevation, in addition to more intense heat from the sun. As much as we know to drink plenty of fluids…dehydration occurs from time to time. These ORS have helped in nearly all these cases, restoring energy to exhausted and fatigued adventurers by providing instant electrolytes and potassium. We don’t leave home with out bringing these along, just in case.

    Taste is pretty terrible – salty, bitter. I did two things to counteract this: One, diluted by mixing with more water. Two, used Crystal Light flavoring to mask the taste. That being said, I’ve been using these to hydrate and recover faster after being sick, and also in the morning after rough nights of partying.
