O.R.S set to be rolled out in over 10,000 UK pharmacies

Clinova’s O.R.S soluble tablets will be rolled out in over 10,000 UK pharmacies from June, 2012. O.R.S soluble tablets are one of the world’s first tablet forms of the standard oral rehydration salts formula. The tablets contain a combination of glucose, salts and electrolytes. The tablets help to replenish the body with water and salts that have been depleted due to dehydration and thereby help to maintain an optimal fluid balance. O.R.S soluble tablets are designed for a variety of users including people who lose excess fluid, professional and recreational athletes, visitors to hot/tropical countries and people who are dehydrated due to alcohol consumption.  The usual dosage form for oral rehydration salts is a sachet but Clinova’s tablet form offers significant advantages compared to existing sachet form products. Clinova’s oral rehydration salts soluble tablets are a glucose-salt combination. If the body loses more fluid than it takes in e.g. in exercise or heat exhaustion, this can result in dehydration. To enable the intestines to obtain fluid from food residues, glucose and minerals are important.  The effervescent tablets replenish the water and body salts and thereby help to maintain a proper fluid balance.  This product will be available from pharmacies in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland.
