Herbal water retention tablets for natural relief

Nobody wants to suffer the discomfort and unattractive puffiness that goes with water retention. Happily, herbal water retention tablets can help solve this irritating minor health problem.

How do herbal water retention tablets work?

Fluid retention, or Oedema to give it its medical name, occurs when unwanted fluid collects in the circulatory system or within the tissues and cavities of the body instead of being flushed out of your system. Usually mild, it can nonetheless cause swelling in the hands, feet, ankles and legs, particularly for women just before their monthly period.

If you have ever suffered from water retention you will be aware of just how uncomfortable and debilitating it can be.  It can cause aches and pains, making movement feel a bit more challenging and causing you to feel sluggish and sore. Happily, there are ways to alleviate the symptoms of the condition by eating well, exercising regularly and taking note of the amount of salt you are eating.

Taking herbal water retention tablets can help to relieve symptoms naturally. The natural diuretic properties of Dandelion root and leaf in HRI Water Balance herbal water retention tablets in particular, can help restore your body’s natural water balance and relieve your symptoms.

There are three key herbs that are used to help reduce the discomfort of water retention:

Dandelion root and leaf

Extracts of Dandelion root and leaf are traditionally used for their diuretic and antioxidant properties. Dandelion extracts are sometimes used by herbal practitioners to help treat high blood pressure, which can be an additional risk for those suffering from oedema.  This is because the water-eliminating ability of the dandelion root helps to reduce the fluid content of the blood, which in turn could help to lower blood pressure.

Dandelion root helps to stimulate the body’s production of bile, aiding with getting rid of nasty toxins from your body via your sweat or urine.

Uva Ursi

Uva Ursi, is a small evergreen plant featuring red berries. Its delicate looks belie its efficiency as a herbal medicine.  The leaves of uva ursi are traditionally used for reducing the painful inflammation and swelling associated with oedema.

Uva Ursi contains arbutin and hydroquinone, which both have antibacterial properties. The herb also contains tannins, which help reduce inflammation and swelling, and it has diuretic properties that help reduce water retention.

Buchu leaf

Buchu leaf is native to South Africa and has long been considered to be beneficial for those suffering from water retention.

The active compounds in the Buchu Leaf are traditionally used to help kill germs and also promote urine flow.

Whichever herbal water retention tablets you choose, you should always use THR approved herbal water retention tablets in combination with a balanced diet and regular exercise to prevent water retention and, when it does occur, to effectively and reliably alleviate it.
