Oral rehydration gluco-saline solution with the addition of inulin as a prebiotic (orange juice flavour)
Useful to stop diarrhea restore the loss of water and mineral salts due to acute infective diarrhea. Useful for the rehydration of the patients with cystic fibrosis, in the excessive perspiration and in the sports activity.
Package: 8 sachet (8 g each)
Patent n. RM98A000348
Oral solution for the rehidration of acute diarrhea, vomiting, excessive perspiration, cystic fibrosis; it’s a mixture of dextrose and mineral salts with the addition of inulin which provides a prebiotic action on intestinal bacterial flora, increases the rehydration and improves the taste of the product.
Inulin is a soluble dietary fiber made from 10 to 60 units of fructose. It has a caloric value of 1,5 kcal/g, due to its components that are fermented in the colon. For its molecular complexity it doesn’t affect the osmolarity of the solution.
The use of Sodioral with inulin ensures:
- Improved rehydration and absorption of mineral salts compared to oral solutions without inulin;
- Effective for all types of acute diarrheas (regarding both the small and large intestines);
- Good production of S.C.F.A. (Short Chain Fatty Acids);
- Proliferation of bifidobacteria, thus becoming the dominant strain of the colonic microflora. Extensive researches have shown that taking suitable amounts of inulin significantly increases (from 5 to 10 times) bifidobacteria, which have well-known benefits on the intestinal tract, and at the same time considerably reduces potentially pathogenic bacteria;
- Production of broad-spectrum antibacterial substances (Bacteriocins) against pathogenic strains (Clostridia, Shigella Campylobacter, Vibrio cholerae);
- Stimulation of the immune system.;
- Better taste of the product with the addition of orange flavour, inulin (which also has a sweet taste) and the reduction of chloride ions.
For these reasons Sodioral with Inulin is the only oral rehydration solution with good taste that not only meets all the ESPGHAN requirements, but also provides a prebiotic action (production of bifidobacteria on site and S.C.F.A.) with a better absorption of salts and water, ensuring a more rapid recovery and prevention of relapses.
- for diarrhea and for rehydrating water salts in cystic fibrosis patients: 1 sachet diluted in 250 ml of water. Drink ad libitum or according to medical advice;
- in case of vomiting: the solution must be cold and administered slowly with a little spoon;
- in case of excessive perspiration: 1 sachet diluted in 500 ml of water. Drink ad libitum or according to medical advice;
- for sport activities: 1 sachet diluted in 750 ml of water. Drink ad libitum.
