Fluid and Electrolyte Replacement for Colds and Flu

Text-only Preview

Shortly after VITALYTE was developed, a runner told me about his whole family being down with the u a few weeks
before. He was so sick he didn’t feel like eating or drinking anything, even if he could keep it down. But, he knew that it
was up to him to do something so he could look after the rest of the family. He remembered that VITALYTE hadn’t upset
his usually sensitive stomach in a marathon and tried some of it (this was the original, almost tasteless, formulation). It
went down easily, seemed to settle his stomach ... and stayed down. A few more glasses and, within a half-hour, he was
up taking care of the rest of the family. With liberal administrations of VITALYTE, they were up and about faster than any
of the other people he knew who had the u at that time.
One of the earliest symptoms of a respiratory virus infection is aching muscles and dry or “gritty” eyes ... you feel as if
you haven’t had enough sleep. As the virus invades the cells, uids migrate into the intercellular medium from the cells
and from circulation ... a “whole-body inammation” ... and the cells of the body are effectively dehydrated. Fever also
contributes to dehydration, as does vomiting or diarrhea ... you can see why the doctor says “Drink plenty of uids”.
The malaise of an illness is basically a dehydration symptom and rehydration can dramatically remedy this. The problem
lies in being able to get the uids into the system; when you are nauseous, usually nothing tastes good enough to drink
even if it will stay down and, when you have diarrhea, everything just goes right through the system. As the water is lost,
it carries with it electrolytes from your body, depleting you even further if they aren’t replaced. Often physicians must
prescribe electrolyte supplements or even intravenous uids with electrolytes, especially for small children and babies,
when they have been severely dehydrated from colds or u.
You can see how VITALYTE can help someone coming down with, or in the throes of, these illnesses. It is designed to be
innocuous in the stomach, buffered to feel like nothing is there, has a light avor that doesn’t offend the palate when noth-
ing tastes good, and goes into the system quickly with the electrolytes so vital to the body’s well-being. As experienced
by thousands of “test subjects”, nothing else is so effective in helping you prevent, survive and recover from colds, u and
many other respiratory and gastrointestinal ailments.
Like thousands of others who have discovered how effective it is, whenever I feel the symptoms of a cold or the u coming on
... dry, gritty and puffy eyes and aching muscles for no other reason or even more advanced stages like congestion, stuffy
nose, headache and cough ... I start a regimen of VITALYTE, perhaps backed by analgesics like ibuprofen (Advil),
aspirin or acetaminophen (Tylenol) and Vitamin C, and am feeling better in a short time and “all well” much sooner!
Try it; you’ll really appreciate the difference Gookinaid’s VITALYTE can make !
