>We have all experienced at some point that uncomfortable feeling of puffiness like when your rings won’t fit all of a sudden or those same jeans you had on Saturday night don’t seem to fit on Sunday.
The most common reason for this is water retention. Maybe you had some extra sodium in your diet, maybe you didn’t drink enough water or maybe your hormones or electrolytes are off balance. Regardless of the reason, it is not a nice feeling or look to be sporting. On the other end of the spectrum, you may be a competitive physique athlete or someone looking for that extra lean look for a shoot. Many may not know this, but one of the secrets of looking like those physique athletes or the models in the magazines and ads, is to achieve a dry look by shedding as much subcutaneous water as they can naturally and safely.
Our systems always want homeostasis and if we don’t maintain this, we can experience a myriad of problems. Our bodies run on electrical impulses that require a certain level of water and electrolytes such as sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium and vitamin B6. In order to shed excess fluids causing your bloat, you will need to manipulate your body’s electrolytes in a healthful way with a certain balanced ratio. If you have too much of one particular electrolyte, your body may respond by cramping, holding even more water, kidney failure, having heart conduction problems, and so on. So a careful balance of this is important.
When it comes to shedding excess water or going to the level of dryness of the competitors and models, it is important to keep a certain level of fluid and electrolyte balance. The best way to do this is by naturally assisting your hormonal and organ systems. This is also extremely important for those who are experiencing just the everyday bloat. We also need to sort of trick our body’s organs like the bladder and kidneys into thinking that we have a sufficient fluid and electrolyte balance, so it can release any excess and then some.
It is important to do this in such a way that you do not throw yourself into a chemical/electrolyte imbalance with the safest way being supplementation of such herbs as dandelion extract, uva ursi, and parsley and buchu leaf. These herbs have been shown to stimulate the system to release fluids from the body without also shedding the important electrolytes or throwing them off kilter. This is not only excellent for the prevention of the side effects mentioned earlier, but these herbs also have properties to help prevent an immediate rebound effect, while also aiding the healing of certain health issues and the detoxification of the liver.
With additional added electrolytes in the proper balance,you can be rest assured of safety and efficacy all the while achieving the lean and dry look for the show or the shoot or more importantly, simply fitting into your wardrobe EVERY day of the week!
