As a member of SheSpeaks, I was given the opportunity to try out and review a new product called Drip Drop Hydration Powder. I was sent 4 packets of varying flavors to try, for free, in exchange for my personal opinion of their product and review.
Drip Drop is an electrolyte replacement aide that states it is "medical grade." As a nurse, I know how important it is to maintain electrolyte balance. When a person gets sick with vomiting, diarrhea or dehydration, and the person does not have IV fluids or some type of electrolyte replacement product given to him or her, it can become a very dangerous situation for that person. Electrolyte imbalance can affect the function of a person's kidneys, liver, blood production, and even brain function, so keeping electrolytes balanced is a key part of survival.
Drip Drop comes in packets that are opened and then mixed into 8 fl oz of water. (Kinda like the drink mix packets you can buy at the store.) The packets are 0.35 oz each, which equates to 10 grams. The flavors that were sent to me were lemon and berry. You can find out more about this product at their website.
The back of each packet does clearly state to only use this product under medical supervision. It also states that children under 12 mos of age should use this only under the advice of a doctor. Due to the nature of this product, and the fact that this product is for electrolyte replacement and should only be used when a person is sick, my family and I did not have a chance to try the product out. Thankfully, we have been perfectly well during flu and cold season!
I will hold on to these packets for future use, as this sounds like a great product to have on hand for illnesses.
