Gastrolyte Effervescent Blackcurrant 20

Gastrolyte provides an oral correction of fluid and electrolyte loss in infants, children and adults.  What ever the cause of the diarrhoea, the loss of fluid is potentially dangerous.  The risk to babies and small children is very real since they have less fluid to lose.  Gastrolyte is a balanced mix of glucose and minerals designed to promote absorption of water, replacing lost fluid quickly and speeding recovery.  Gastrolyte effervescent glucose tablets rapidly replaces the fluids and minerals lost when infants, children and adults suffer from acute, watery diarrhoea or vigorous prolonged exercise.  This speeds recovery and helps you feel better sooner.

Gastrolyte effervescent tablets dissolve quickly in water, making a pleasant tasting solution which children will readily accept.  Gastrolyte can easily be carried with you when travelling.
