Stop Retaining Water... By Drinking More Water!

1 |

Many people around the world are constantly dealing with bloating, or retention of water in their bodies. People find their clothes not fit correctly and are negatively affected both in comfort and self-esteem. So, is there anything natural a person can do to help offset a bout of this unpredictable hormonal nuisance? YES!

Slim Water

First of all, we should understand what factors can cause water retention. Surprisingly, not drinking enough water is a main culprit. Water helps your liver convert fat into usable energy. If you don't drink enough, your kidneys are overwhelmed with concentrated fluids, and they will make your liver do extra work. As the liver already works hard to turn your body fat into the energy you use, if it has to do the kidney's work, the liver would simply hold onto the extra fat that would have been burned off if you simply had enough water.

What's worse is that instead of excreting water and waste products, your body retains existing water to reuse. which is the main reason causing water retention and bloating. You are in a famine when you don't get enough water, that your body panics and holds on to any existing water selfishly. Dehydration thus can make you look bloated and fat instead of thin and taut. Not to mention the headache, rapid heartbeat, etc. that comes with dehydration. The best way to get rid of this water retention is to drink enough of it to return your body and its processes back to a normal equilibrium.

By drinking properly, you'll also feel thirsty more often, and this will start a healthy cycle of thirst leading to hydration. But you have to keep it up because if you stop drinking enough water, all the good things you've gained from drinking water (balanced body fluids, weight loss, decreased hunger and thirst) will reverse back to the way they were. In the human body, water affects every aspect of our health. Water lubricates joints and organs. It maintains muscle tone and keeps skin elastic and soft. Water regulates body temperature, filters out impurities, and keeps the brain working properly while transporting nutrients to and from cells.
