What's in the Banana Bag Oral Solution (BBOS)?

"We are dedicated to an unadulterated sodium & glucose (dextrose) formula proven to reduce the need for intravenous treatment of dehydration... this means a function-over-flavor approach with no unneeded sugars and sweeteners.  BBOS is a therapeutic, clinically-focused formula of electrolytes and vitamins for kids and adults who desire more than what your typical electrolyte solutions and sports drinks can offer."

Dr. Brian Dery, Pharm.D.

Electrolytes

One packet reconstituted in a glass of water yields 17.8 mEq of sodium and only 18 mMol of dextrose resulting in a low osmolarity range of 120 to 240 mOsm/L.

An effective oral re-hydration solution can reduce the need for IV therapy when treating dehydration, and give the following benefits:

decreased heart rate

increase in blood volume

increase in thermal cooling

restore sense of balance

Vitamins

When very high doses of B-vitamins are dissolved in a watery electrolyte solution and taken in a glass of water, absorption through the GI-tract is left uncompromised.

One packet of Banana Bag contains well over 100% your Daily Value for the most critical of vitamins such as Methylcobalamin, Folate, Thiamine, & Vitamin-C

We also utilizes L-Methylfolate, a naturally-occurring, biologically active form of folate which gives greater bioavailability than ordinary folic acid supplements. 

D-Glucose

Strictly for function, dextrose is added to work in harmony with sodium, activating the Na+/glucose cotransporter system. This transport system, when properly activated, is responsible for a significant decrease in the need for IV treatment of dehydration.
