Originally made for kids with tummy troubles, Pedialyte has captured a new, very different audience.
With celebrities like Miley Cyrus and Pharrell lauding the greatness of the electrolyte-filled beverage (Pharrell claims he drinks it every single day), people have caught onto the trend. It’s especially popular in the party scene, and it’s starting to replace Gatorade and other sports drinks among athletes.
Pedialyte contains salt and electrolytes, which both help rehydrate people who’ve drank too much or who’ve been sweating for an extended period of time. So while it can contribute to a quicker recovery post-exertion, don’t expect it to have any special powers. It won’t get rid of your headache or energize you, and it most certainly won’t erase your unfortunate behaviour at the work party.
Watch the video, above, for the deets on the latest (and rather unexpected) party beverage.
