Otsuka is a leading manufacturer of IV solution in Japan, with 43% of market share. Otsuka knows better than anybody about human body fluid and how to replenish it.
When one of Otsuka’s scientists suffered from severe diarrhea in Mexico in the 70’s, he came up with an idea of creating a nutrition drink that absorbs quickly and last long.
During opertion and surgery, medical doctors have no time to drink and Otsuka found out many doctors were drinking Otsuka’s IV-solution during the operation to keep them hydrated and concentrated. it should be good for consumers, too!
Why don’t we make a drink out of Otsuka’s IV-solution? POCARI SWEAT is a scientifically formulated health hydration drink which helps to manage dehydration due to the loss of fluids through sweating. It contains balanced electrolytes (sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium and chloride) which is a critical factor in the timely absorption to the body, to help you recover from dehydration faster. Refreshing and mild tasting , recommended as a ‘first aid’ beverage for sports, exercise or any physical activities and various forms of dehydration in daily activities.
