ORS is a combination that consists mainly of different salts. If the body loses more fluid than it takes in, this can result in dehydration. To enable the intestines to obtain fluid from food residues, glucose (grape sugar) and minerals are important. ORS contributes to avoid dehydration in children and adults which can be caused for instance by diarrhea. The usual dosage form for ORS is in sachet, but we were convinced that a better form was possible. The composition of the tablet is based on the guidelines of the WHO. We succeeded to combine a lot of advantages in our product.
