Herbal Water Balance Support
Information about non-medical excess stored water in the body (or oedema).
Many adults, particularly women during their monthly cycle, suffer from non-medical excess stored water, also known as oedema (or odema) and commonly called water retention.
When the body’s natural water levels are unbalanced, water retention can often make you feel uncomfortable and bloated. Common symptoms of fluid and water retention include a bloated abdomen and puffiness of the fingers, eyes, knees and ankles; often making clothing feel tighter and uncomfortable.
Water retention can be caused by many factors, such as:
- Poor kidney function.
- Heart disease.
- Excessive salt / sodium intake.
- Poor mineral balance.
- HRT and other drugs (such as cortisone).
