Oxiwave Ors Powder Description

Oxiwave Ors Oral Powder is an oral rehydration salt (ORS) based on the WHO formula. It is used for restoring fluids and electrolytes in the body that are lost due to dehydration during diarrhoea and

The combination of electrolytes and sugar stimulates water and electrolyte absorption from the gut. It, therefore, prevents or reverses dehydration and replaces lost salts in conditions such as diarrhoea and vomiting. Use Oxiwave Ors Oral Powder as directed by your doctor or pharmacist and read the label carefully before use.
