2: Rehydration – Supporting fluid and electrolyte balance
Oralade is a fast-acting ORS containing the precise ratio of glucose and electrolytes necessary to activate and support glucose-stimulated sodium (and water) absorption from the intestinal lumen. Helping maintain normal hydration even during periods of gastrointestinal disturbance.
3: Microenteral GI Support – Helping maintain intestinal function and integrity
Oralade’s unique combination of simple sugars, functional amino acids, and easily digestible prebiotic fibres work synergistically to support normal gut function and a healthy balanced microbiota, paving the way for a return to full enteral nutrition when needed.
Containing zero fat and only 1% protein Oralade requires no digestion, is easily absorbed, and is safe for use during all life stages.
A dual functioning simple sugar acting as an energy source for healthy intestinal cells and as a co-transporter to support and maintain electrolyte and fluid uptake during gastrointestinal disturbances.
Sodium, Chloride, Potassium
Along with dextrose, the perfect ratio of these essential electrolytes is necessary to formulate the perfect isotonic ORS. Enabling Oralade to support normal hydration in dogs and cats even when the usual homeostatic mechanisms may be disrupted.
Metabolised directly by enterocytes, glutamate is considered the most important fuel for intestinal tissue and therefore essential for maintaining normal intestinal motility and function
Important for cell growth, protein synthesis, as a co-transporter, and in the formation of the antioxidant glutathione, glycine plays key roles in the maintenance of normal intestinal structure and intestinal mucosal protection.
Easily digestible prebiotic fibres act as a nutrient source for beneficial microorganisms in the gut, helping to maintain a balanced and healthy microbiota. Furthermore, fermentation of prebiotics by gut bacteria produces short chain fatty acids (SCFA’s), the preferred energy source for intestinal cells.
Purified Water – Oralade Ready to Serve
Oralade contains purified water to optimise voluntary uptake by dogs and cats and support fast, effective hydration.
