HydraChoice™ is a formulation with probiotics and electrolytes. HydraChoice™ contains the probiotics L. Acidophilus, and L. Rhamnosus GG, LGG ® which assist in reducing the symptoms of conditions such as diarrhoea. Indications: HydraChoice™ is a formulation with probiotics and electrolytes. HydraChoice™ is intended to aid in the process of fluid and electrolyte replacement associated with conditions where these elements are lost. In addition, it may help to restore the natural balance of intestinal flora in these conditions. Reimbursable by certain medical aids. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines as published in 2001, probiotics are: 'live micro-organisms which when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host'. The probiotics L.rhamnosus GG, LGG ® and L.acidophilus assist in reducing the symptoms of conditions such as diarrhoea by helping to restore the natural balance of intestinal flora. There are multiple theories regarding the actions of probiotics. The following three categories have been identified: Modulation of host immune response. Helps to enhance and strengthen the body's immune system, especially the cells responsible for fighting harmful bacteria. Enhanced epithelial barrier function. Helps to ensure a healthy bowel lining, preventing harmful bacteria from invading. Anti-microbial effects. Helps kill harmful bacteria and prevents infection. Electrolytes. Electrolyte maintenance is important to help prevent dehydration. Introducing electrolytes back into the body helps keep dehydration from occurring. Electrolytes help to increase the absorption of fluids into the bloodstream. If electrolytes are lost too quickly, the body does not have the ability to restore them rapidly enough. Formulations containing electrolytes such as chloride, sodium, and potassium can help replenish what was lost.
