Best Ways To Cure Water Retention

Retention is caused by an excessive accumulation of fluid in the body. It occurs in women during menopause or peri-menopause often because they are taking estrogen replacement hormones. Too much water in the body is an indication of weak adrenals or kidneys, the circulatory system, or perhaps the heart.
Waste, liquid and solid, is removed from our bodies with the help of water. Toxins and fat are in this waste. If faecal matter starts backing up in your intestines then you will have more health concerns. Your metabolism is slowed down by a lack of sufficient water and the nutrients that your body needs to stay healthy will not flow through your body easily. With a slower metabolism you will put on weight.

If we consume too much salt (sodium) either by pouring too much salt onto our food, or eating food with a high salt content, or even drinking pop which has a high sodium content, our bodies will retain water to compensate. Our bodies will automatically 'hold on' to the excess water causing weight gain which is not FAT but the weight of the water retained.

Sodium is one of the usual suspects when it comes to diet-related water retention. Those who enjoy eating fast foods and many kinds of processed foods can end up feeling bloated because fast food is more often than not laden with salt (not to mention other less than desirable substances like saturated fat and so on).

Your body stores water just like it stores fat. It is obviously an important part of staying alive as is body fat. Subcutaneous water is what we want to minimize and is caused by a couple of things. When you have too much sodium in your system, water binds to that sodium and causes this water retention. The more excess sodium in your system, the more likely it is that you will have this type of water layer under your skin.

Another of the best water retention remedies is to take potassium supplements, or to consume food that is rich in potassium. While taking supplements might be an excellent way to get enough potassium to stave off water retention, they might be prohibitively expensive for some sufferers, whereas consuming food high in potassium, such as bananas for instance, can be significantly easier on the pocket. In addition, such food can also be beneficial in and of itself - bananas are rich in fiber as well as potassium, after all.

Make it a habit to drink at least 8-10 glasses of water daily. Water helps in getting rid of the harmful toxic wastes and hydrates the skin to lessen the appearance of cellulite.

When the body is dehydrated it doesn't function right, so substances such as alcohol and caffeine should be avoided if possible. Caffeine in very small doses such as what is found in green tea can be useful as a mild diuretic, but it's easy to ingest too much and become dehydrated.

Exercise is essential to the body's normal functions. The lack of exercise will severely affect your circulation and your body's ability to regulate fluids. When circulation is weak, fluids often pool in the ankles, legs and hands as well as other areas of the body.
