BANa Hydration Drink Becoming a “Must Have” For Parents

Doctor Approved “IV” in a Bottle Helping to Curb Dehydration in Kids

PRLog - Aug. 8, 2012 - TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Charleston, SC (August 8, 2012)---Dehydration in children is a major concern during the summer months.  For years, doctors have prescribed an oral solution to rehydrate.  But Dr. Benjamin Yoo, an ER Doctor in South Carolina, wasn’t pleased with the solutions that were available.  So he came up with BANa hydration drink, developed with a simple idea that a beverage drink similar to an IV bag would produce the maximum rehydration property needed for optimal revitalization.

“As a physician working in the ER, I have seen far too many cases of dehydration-- a condition that is both preventable and easily cured,” Yoo said, “Based on these experiences, I created BANa -- a next generation hydration beverage that takes the properties of a saline IV and offers them as a needle free, oral hydration alternative. “

According to a study published by the Mayo Clinic, ““Children don’t adapt as well as adults do to exercise in hot, humid weather. They produce more heat, sweat less and may be less likely to drink enough fluids during exercise —all of which increase their risk of dehydration”.

Vomiting and diarrhea are potentially dangerous in young children because they can quickly become dehydrated. To guard against this, doctors often recommend that parents use oral rehydration solutions…which replace not only fluids, but also electrolytes like sodium and potassium.  But nothing on the market has come close to the effectiveness of BANa.

Yoo added, “BANa is formulated similar in concept to an IV normal saline solution given in the ER for dehydration episodes.  Normal saline solution has the most important electrolytes for fluid retention, NaCl (salt) and H2O(water).  BANa is formulated in the same fashion.  Whether given PO (per oral) drink or IV(intravenous) solution in the ER, the efficacy of absorption rate into the body is very similar, as long as the hydration properties of a drink are similar to the normal saline.”

Sodium and water are the fundamental components needed to retain and rehydrate the body. BANa also incorporates potassium, vitamins and minerals - all which assist in a more effective and efficient recovery during dehydrated episodes.

BANa has no sugar, no calories, 1 carb, and no preservatives. While water may seem to be a good source of rehydration, it does not contain the one essential electrolyte, sodium, to help contribute to normal cell and organ function.  BANa is geared towards both athletes and medicinal consumers in combating dehydration.
