With life in Ireland slowly getting back to normal with the return of activities for all the family and travel and events now finally back on the agenda, it is really looking like this summer will be one to remember for making lots of new, fun memories! However, concerns still remain regarding new Covid variants and other viruses and bugs are also doing the rounds, so DiaCare is a great addition to make to your families medicine cabinet or travel bag this season.
Not only will DiaCare shorten the lifespan of diarrhoea or vomiting should it hit your household, it is also particularly important during the warm summer months when it even easier to become dehydrated from illness.
DiaCare, which is part of the MyPro family; an Irish brand based in Mullingar, is here to help with its innovative and unique scientifically balanced blend of glucose electrolytes, minerals and probiotic fibres in one dual action sachet composition offering two independent benefits - electrolyte oral hydration and also a probiotic which helps to maintain or restore good gut health.
Oral rehydration therapy (ORT) is recommended for children and adults to treat mild to moderate dehydration which can be caused by diarrhoea, vomiting, fever or other conditions which can cause loss of body fluids. When the body is dehydrated water alone is not enough to rehydrate. For water to be effectively absorbed in the body salts and minerals known as electrolytes must be present. DiaCare contains electrolytes sodium chloride, potassium chloride and magnesium hydroxide, which restores electrolytes balance, contributes to normal digestion and enhances the absorption of water.
What makes DiaCare unique is the inclusion of a probiotic too (Lactobacillus Rhamnosus GG). It not only reduces the lifetime of diarrohoea by over a day but it prevents bacterial infections. Probiotic act faster than bacteria and will effectively colonise the gut within 5 to 7 days outnumbering pathogenic species. So, with continued use DiaCare can really act as a barrier in protecting your family against bacterial infections that can cause upset stomachs, diarrhoea or vomiting, while promoting and maintaining gut health.
Speaking about DiaCare, Dr. Lisa Cunningham, Consultant in Emergency Medicine, Prehospital Doctor and Mum of three, commented, “As a Consultant in Emergency Medicine, the dehydrated child is one that causes me concern. Children become dehydrated so quickly, through vomiting and/or diarrhoea. It is essential that the fluid losses are stopped and replenished, as quickly as possible. The fluid losses contain electrolytes which help our bodies to keep functioning. Their depletion can cause very serious consequences. DiaCare has been proven to reduce the duration of diarrhoea, with certain illnesses, by 1 day. The added probiotic in DiaCare, gets to action quickly to help restore the good bacteria of the gut. All of this with DiaCare, helps to reduce the risk of dehydration with children and actively assist the replenishing of their gut bacteria.”
MyPro DiaCare is suitable for adults and children aged 3 and over as well as vegans and coeliacs. The formulation is good for the gut and stomach while the orange flavour makes it appealing for adults and children alike!
DiaCare is priced at just €14.95 for 12 dual action sachets and is available in pharmacies across the country now. For further details log onto www.mypro-biotics.ie.
