Potassium chloride / sodium chloride is an essential component of ORS / electrolyte-containing beverages.
Sodium and potassium salts play an important role in balancing the water and electrolyte balance in the body.
Electrolyte-containing beverages with sodium and potassium salts are used to compensate for electrolyte loss after dehydration. Besides special drinks for athletes, standardized electrolyte solutions are ideal for restoring the electrolyte balance to the necessary equilibrium after severe electrolyte loss (e.g., diarrhea, vomiting, heat stroke).
Potassium chloride and sodium chloride from K+S are used, among other things, for the production of the World Health Organization (WHO) ORS drinking solution.
