How does Biorela® ORS work?

The combination of Biorela® and oral rehydration salt works in synergy.

Biorela® contains the HOWARU® restore combination of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria that regulate and restore the intestinal microflora, while the balanced combination of electrolytes in the oral rehydration salt restores lost electrolytes and water caused by diarrhoea.

Directions for use and dosage

Biorela®: To restore the intestinal microflora mix the contents of one sachet in a cold drink (water, juice, milk). Do not mix with hot ingredients.

During antibiotic therapy, wait at least 3 hours after taking the antibiotic to take the product.

Oral rehydration salt: Boil 200 ml water and cool to room temperature. Add in contents of one sachet.  The oral rehydration salt, once prepared, must be used within 6 hours if kept refrigerated, or within 3 hours if kept at room temperature.

Your doctor will prescribe the amount and the dosage depending on the level of dehydration.

Oral rehydration salt recommended dosages:

Body weight (kg) Rehydration solution (in ml) for the first 4-6 hrs of dehydration MRD*
(ml)
Low-level dehydration Medium-level dehydration
up to 6 150-300 200-400 50
6-9 300-450 400-600 50
9-12 450-600 600-800 100
12-15 600-750 800-1000 150
15-30 750-1500 1000-2000 200
over 30 and adults 1500-3000 2000-4000 400

*MRD – maximum recommended dose of an individual dose of the rehydration solution

Advantages

Synergic activity

A combination of five strains of bacterial cultures restores the intestinal microflora, while the balanced combination of electrolytes restores lost electrolytes and water caused by diarrhoea.

Reduced osmolality

The solution’s osmolality is 245 mOsm/kg, the level recommended by the World Health Organization and UNICEF for prevention of dehydration from all types of diarrhoea.

Quick rehydration

Practicality

Suitable for children and adults.

The strongest family of probiotics
