DripDrop® ORS is a medical grade Oral Rehydration Solution. It was created by a Mayo Clinic trained physician to save the lives of people suffering from life-threatening dehydration. When water and sports drinks aren’t enough DripDrop® transforms your water bottle into a scientifically proven effective ORS. It’s convenient, tastes great and safe whenever you need it.
DripDrop ORS patented formula provides medically relevant electrolyte levels consistent with WHO ORS standards, but also tastes great. Notably, sports drinks only contain about 1/3 the electrolytes of DripDrop ORS and most contain too much sugar.
As a result, ORS has been proven to hydrate better and faster than water or sports drinks, and comparable to IV therapy. By solving the taste problem, DripDrop ORS has made the most highly effective oral hydration solution known to medical science practical for use by anyone who finds themselves with a hydration need where water and sports drinks just aren’t enough.
- DripDrop’s patented ratio of sodium and sugars activate one of the body’s most effective dehydration mechanisms — the sodium-glucose cotransport system.
- When glucose is present in the small intestine, sodium and water absorption is increased by 2-3x.
- Water is transported through the intestinal membrane by diffusion. Conversely water can be transported in the opposite direction (plasma to intestine) with high osmolarity solutions.

Roots in Relief
As a student at the Mayo Medical School, Dr. Eduardo Dolhun witnessed scores of people — many of them children — dying unnecessarily from dehydration while on a relief mission in Guatemala. Miles from a hospital and without enough equipment, he saw firsthand how effective Oral Rehydration Solutions (ORS) were and realised their potential to combat dehydration on a massive scale.
Oral Rehydration Solutions were created by doctors more than 50 years ago to treat deadly dehydration in developing countries. They contain a precise, proven ratio of salts, sugars and other ingredients. Today ORS save over three million children around the world each year and are recognised by Doctors Without Borders and the World Health Organization as one of the most important medical advances of the last century.
DripDrop: An Evolution in ORS
In 2010, Dr. Dolhun had perfected his formula for DripDrop, the first ORS to combine medical grade hydration and excellent taste. After a few years distributing DripDrop in relief settings, we recognised that an American healthcare system that favours expensive, invasive IV therapy to treat dehydration was ripe for disruption.
Today DripDrop works with leaders across many industries to reduce dehydration’s impact on health, performance, and safety. After winning the support of the nation’s top hospitals, we’re now focused on making our breakthrough hydration solution available to everyone.
