Ceralyte is scientifically formulated for fast and sustained rehydration while correcting of cell and fluid balance. The patented rice-based formula in CeraLyte contains short, medium, and long chain carbohydrates. The shorter chains tend to break down first, while the longer chains take longer. The human body breaks down these carbohydrates into glucose over time, delivering the electrolytes and water in a "timed-released" delivery system. The length of time for the body to break down the carbohydrate into glucose depends entirely on the chain length of the carbohydrates. The body needs the simultaneous presence of the glucose and the salts in order for the absorption to work efficiently and effectively. CeraLyte accomplishes this successfully.
Ceralyte has far more substrates for the delivery of electrolytes than any other ORS product. In addition Ceralyte has a low osmolarity which provides both fast and sustained hydration. This is something which simple sugars cannot provide. Ceralyte meets the World Health Organization's standards and is readily available.
Dual Action – replaces and reduces fluid losses
Reduces Fluid losses from 18% to 30%
Shortens length of acute diarrheal illness by as much as 2 days
Enhances absorption of orally delivered therapeutic agents and vitamins
More effective in severe cases of dehydration
Ceralyte 50 is for mild dehydration and maintaining fluid balance and volume.
Ceralyte 50 potassium free is for mild dehydration and maintaining fluid balance and volume with the needed absence of potassium
Ceralyte 70 is for the prevention and correction of moderate dehydration.
Ceralyte 90 is for severe dehydration, where fluid losses are high and diarrhea is present.
