    Frequently Asked Questions

    When to use, how much to take & answers to the most common questions.

    Firstly, water is the best hydration fluid to consume on a daily basis, as part of a healthy, well-balanced diet. However, if you experience dehydration there are many rehydration drinks available. Oral rehydration solutions (such as Hydralyte) are clinically formulated to contain the correct balance of fluid and electrolytes. This allows for faster and more effective absorption of fluid and electrolytes by the body, and as a result, dehydration can be corrected very quickly.

    In the Hydralyte range, there are ready to drink solutions, powder packets and effervescent tablets. When these are consumed according to the directions for use on packaging, they are all equally effective to prevent and relieve dehydration.

    To maximize hydration, your body needs a specific formulaic balance of salt, glucose, and water. This ideal formula can access small intestine and rush water directly into the bloodstream, allowing for WAY more hydration. This activation of your Sodium-Glucose Co-Transporter (or pump) is why you’ll feel the effects of Hydralyte quickly.

    Water only absorbs so much fluid. That’s why it’s not enough. 

    An oral rehydration solution must also have the correct tonicity to be effective. Hydralyte is hypotonic vs. your body’s cells – it has a higher concentration of water molecules. Therefore, when the sodium-glucose pump is activated, water will flow through.

    Hydralyte is an oral rehydration solution clinically formulated to contain the correct balance of fluid and electrolytes to hydrate very quickly. The loss of fluids and electrolytes through sweat, vomit, pee, diarrhea and other bodily fluids can upset the balance of fluid and electrolytes in your body, causing you to not feel your best. When you drink Hydralyte to relieve dehydration, you may also relieve the symptoms and begin to feel better faster.

    Short answer is: everyone! You can use Hydralyte at the gym, the office, home, car or anywhere in between. Most of our customers use the drinks, tablets, and powders to:

    Replenish the body when sick from flu, cold or food poisoning (vomiting, fever and/or diarrhea)

    Recover from an intense workout or exercise

    Find relief from hangovers (Yup, those morning-afters we know too well)

    Prevent and relieve dehydration caused by long days outside in hot weather

    Hit the ground running after traveling, either by plane or car

    Hydrate quickly throughout busy days or work sessions

    Yes, Hydralyte is family-friendly for both kids and adults alike. That’s one reason we were so compelled to create this product. We wanted an option that was great for us (and way better to our adult taste buds!) that would work great for our kids, too.

    If your child is under a year, please check with your pediatrician (or their nurse) to receive recommendations on dosing.

    Yes, Hydralyte is gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO, dairy-free and caffeine-free.

    Small amounts of sugar are actually necessary to activate hydration (hello sodium-glucose pump!). The problem is most sports drinks and beverages like electrolyte-enhanced water have far too much or not enough sugar, which actually will not hydrate you.

    Hydralyte products contain 3 or 4 grams of sugar, the minimal amount needed to help your body absorb water quickly.

    The short answer: yes!

    Hydralyte is an oral rehydration solution specifically designed to assist in safe, rapid rehydration, making it the ideal addition to staying well hydrated on the ketogenic diet. There are just 5g of carbohydrates in a 200ml serving of Hydralyte, making this beverage keto friendly.

    The signs and symptoms of mild to moderate dehydration will occur when as little as 2% of the body weight is lost through fluid. The body requires the correct balance of fluid and electrolytes (salts and minerals) to maintain everyday functions and preserve health. Internally, the body has special mechanisms which help to keep this balance in check. However, the loss of fluid and electrolytes through urine, sweat, vomit, diarrhea and other bodily fluids can upset this balance, and in some cases, a person may experience dehydration.

    Some of the signs and symptoms of dehydration include:

    Increased thirst

    Fatigue / Lethargy

    Dizziness

    Headaches

    Dark or decreased urine output

    Sticky or dry mouth

    Loss of skin elasticity

    Irritability

    Try to recognize the common signs and symptoms of dehydration. If and when they occur, start using an oral rehydration solution, Hydralyte, as soon as possible.

    Remember that dehydration can be of particular concern for the elderly and for young children.

    If you are experiencing dehydration, you need to act fast and drink an effective rehydration solution containing electrolytes. The best options are Hydralyte’s scientifically formulated electrolyte solutions as they contain the correct balance of sugar and salt, to ensure that you rapidly restore what the body has lost. Oral rehydration solutions are formulated based on the World Health Organization guidelines for rapid and effective rehydration. It is important to start drinking these products as soon as you notice any signs of dehydration (such as dry mouth, dizziness, fatigue), and sip small amounts at regular intervals to enhance absorption (better than drinking a large bottle all at the one time. You should also monitor yourself for the signs and symptoms of more severe dehydration (such as fainting or very low blood pressure) – if these happen you should seek medical advice as soon as possible.

    When you are planning to exercise, you should ensure that you start in a well hydrated state. To ensure you are well hydrated, aim to drink 8 glasses of water a day. Then, during exercise your fluid intake should match your fluid outlay. A good tip is to take 2 to 3 sips of Hydralyte’s electrolyte solution while performing sustained moderate to vigorous physical activity – this will help to prevent potential dehydration.

    To rapidly rehydrate the body, you need to consume a hydration beverage that contains the correct balance of glucose and electrolytes for fast and effective absorption. The World Health Organization suggests an oral rehydration solution (such as Hydralyte), which provides fast and effective restoration of both fluid and electrolytes. In situations where you are fluid and electrolyte depleted (such as in cases of stomach flu, heavy sweating or other illnesses) an oral rehydration solution may provide fast and effective rehydration.

    This is not a very fun topic, we know, but it is incredibly important. Diarrhea is a common cause of moderate dehydration. Dehydration does not itself cause diarrhea.

    Hydralyte contains 1.5-1.6 glucose monohydrate per 4fl oz (100 ml). (Equivalent to 1.45 g Glucose anhydrous)

    For people with diabetes this amount of glucose may or may not be considered safe depending on your blood glucose control and medication use. This applies to both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Always consult your healthcare professional before adding a new product to your diet.

    When unwell with diarrhea or vomiting, it is important to replace your body’s lost electrolytes, even for people with diabetes. Hydralyte can help provide important electrolytes, even for people with diabetes. Hydralyte can help provide important electrolytes and a small amount of glucose to help maintain blood glucose levels. Monitoring of blood glucose levels during any illness is very important.

    If you have vomiting and diarrhea with considerable fluid loss, you should consult your healthcare professional and discuss monitoring and management of your glucose levels.

    The powder may clump over time, particularly if held at temperatures above 86 °F (30 °C). This is a natural process due to a small quantity of moisture held in the ingredient crystals (e.g., glucose).

    If the powder is clumped, but quite dry, there is no quality defect. It will dissolve in water and the active ingredients remain effective.

    If the powder appears moist or very sticky, we can provide you with a replacement.

    Hydralyte is generally safe to use in children 1-3 years of age; however, you should consult the child’s healthcare professional prior to use. Refer to product packaging for usage directions (see question 26).

    Hydralyte in all children should be used with the supervision of a healthcare professional. Please refer to product packaging for usage directions in children under 12 months of age.

    For very young infants it is advised to give small quantities of Hydralyte slowly and regularly (e.g., 1 teaspoon every 10 minutes). Ensure you have seen a healthcare provider promptly.

    Continue with breast or formula-feeding of infants between sips of Hydralyte.

    If you're pregnant or nursing, congratulations! Hydralyte is safe to consume if you're pregnant or nursing but we always recommend you consult with your doctor.

    We know, the saying 'use under medical supervision’ can seem scary, but Hydralyte was created as a medical food first & foremost.

    As such, it is a food formulated to be used under the supervision of a healthcare professional for the dietary management of dehydration.

    We have a sneaky suspicion that you'll love Hydralyte so much that leftovers will be few and far between. However, in the case that you don't sip all of this deliciousness at once:

    • Hydralyte Ready to Drink Electrolyte Solutions – Refrigerate after opening and discard 1 month after opening.
    • Hydralyte Electrolyte Powders and Hydralyte Effervescent Electrolyte Tablets – 2 hours after preparation (or 24 hours after preparation if refrigerated).

    We also provide all of this information on our label/packing, so please be sure to take a look if you have any further questions.

    The dosage depends on a few factors, such as age and weight. Here are the basics of how much Hydralyte to use.

    Tired or have a headache, start small

     

    If a headache creeps up or you feel some fatigue, start with a packet or two (if in powder form). See how you feel from there. It’s best to start with the least amount and increase gradually.

     

     

    Fairly thirsty or dehydrated already

     

    If you’ve barely drunk water, had a really sweaty workout or just got in from a very hot day, the middle dose of Hydralyte (halfway on the spectrum of what’s on package) is probably perfect.

    Serious fever, sickness, diarrhea or vomiting

     

    If you’re having intense symptoms, your body has likely lost a lot of fluid already. You likely need the higher level of doses recommended on the package, but do consult your doctor for severe or “serious” dehydration. Learn more here.

    • Remove two tablets from tube and replace the cap tightly. Dissolve the tablets into 200 mL (7 fl oz) of water.
    • Sip slowly and frequently while symptoms persist. Discard unused solution after 2 hours, or 24 hours if refrigerated.
    • Always dissolve in water. Never place tablet directly into mouth.
    • Do not use if cap seal is broken. Replace the cap tightly after use.
