Why can’t I just drink water or sports drinks?

DripDrop ORS is more effective at defeating dehydration than plain old drinking water and sports drinks. Here’s why.

Water doesn’t have many electrolytes. That means it can replenish lost fluid, but it won't provide the precise amount of sodium and glucose that your body needs to manage dehydration.
