PanTheryx launches special dietary food targeting diarrhea relief
BOULDER, Colorado — Just in time for the heavy summer travel season and early back-to-school activities, PanTheryx has launched a new innovation for diarrhea relief that is neither a drug nor an over-the-counter medicine. DiaResQ, which is classified by the FDA as a food for special dietary use, is now available at drug stores nationwide and online retailers.
DiaResQ is available in two SKUs, one for adults and the other for children age one and older. Each .74 ounce carton contains three, pre-measured doses of DiaResQ’s powdered formulation and a plastic dosing cup for mixing with cool, clean water and consuming.
Made from naturally derived ingredients such as bovine colostrum and egg solids, DiaResQ works with the body’s natural defenses to sooth symptoms and relieve diarrhea, while restoring key nutrients. The product has no artificial or synthetic colors. The artificial sweetener sucralose is used to make it more palatable.
DiaResQ is currently available at Kinney Drugs, Bartell Drugs, PassportHealth, Meijer and Albertsons, along with Amazon.com and Target.com.
