Our expert says:
Each HydraChoice sachet should be dissolved in 250ml of plain, clean water. This should be used to replace the amount of fluid that you have lost through vomiting or diarrhoea. As a general rule for every cup lost, replace a cup. If you are drinking this as a replacement for what you have lost there should be no side-effects, however if you drink an excessive amount or when you are not losing fluid through diarrhoea or vomiting, you can take in too much of the electrolytes (the sodium and potassium content). A few cups a day is great and will not harm you at all, but you shouldn't be drinking litres a day, and should rather add plain water to your daily consumption.
