GAINESVILLE, FL--(Marketwire - Aug 27, 2012) - Today, based on years of research, Enterade USA LLC brings to market a patented drink made of amino acids and salts for rehydration with a specific focus on cancer radiotherapy and chemotherapy patients. A first of its kind, Enterade - R is a medical food formulated to hydrate and soothe those currently undergoing radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatments.
The normal glucose mediated sodium absorption mechanism that is utilized for rehydration gets compromised during stressful conditions such as radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Enterade - R utilizes amino acid mediated electrolyte absorption to rehydrate patients under such stress. This drink will be sold online as a medical food and has to be taken based on a doctor's recommendation. Enterade - R provides hydration without glucose.
"We created this product to serve a specific patient group that needs rehydration," said Enterade CEO Hari Thrivikramji. "We wanted to make an impact in the lives of cancer patients undergoing radiotherapy and chemotherapy who encounter side effects such as vomiting and diarrhea requiring rehydration. We look forward to expanding our consumer base with a dietary supplement drink and a sports drink that will be launched in the near future."
The recommended dose of Enterade - R is two 8 oz bottles a day for optimal results. To purchase or learn more about Enterade - R, please call 1-855-ENTERADE or visit www.enterade.com.
