  • Quickly refills electrolytes (Na +, K +, CI-) and energy (glucose, lactose)
  • Regenerates and nourishes the intestines (enterocytes) by I-glutamine
  • Restores optimal acid-base balance, due to buffering action (sodium bicarbonate) Can be used with water

Its advisable for Tanzanian situation to dissolve the bolus in 2 liters of water (about 37 C) to prevent additional dehydration. Two times per day one bolus/2 liters of fluid. Administer 2 times a day for 1-7 days

10 boluses per bucket, 50 g per bolus. These boluses are sold per piece as well.
