Many people, especially women, suffer with excess ‘stored water’ / non-medical oedema (water/ fluid retention). Many also find that during each monthly cycle they retain fluid in the body and that bloating of the abdomen causes much discomfort along with puffiness of the fingers, eyes, knees and ankles. This supplement encourages the body’s natural elimination of stored water and waste via the kidneys. Excellent for PCOS and similar conditions.
A combination of 11 concentrated herbals and nutrients designed to support healthy fluid / water levels in the body.
- most cases of (water) fluid retention / oedema
- healthy fluid balance
- breast tenderness and swelling
- body detoxification programs
- the menopause
- a woman’s monthly cycles if water retention increases abdominal swelling, irregulates period and period pains
- swollen ankles.
More about non-medical excess stored water in the body (or oedema)…
Many adults (particularly women), suffer from non-medical excess stored water, known as oedema / odema. Similarly, most people recognise that awful feeling when a favourite item of clothing suddenly feels tighter. Women may find that this is particularly common during each monthly cycle, when they retain fluid in the body and suffer with puffiness of the fingers, eyes, knees and ankles and/or experience bloating of the abdomen, causing discomfort.
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).
WateReg is a specially-designed combination of nutrient-dense and easily absorbed herbs, described in more detail below:
Alfalfa: This nutritious sprout contains alkaloids, isoflavones, coumarins and sterols. It also contains 8 essential enzymes: – amylase (digests starches), coagulase (coagulates milk), invertase (converts sugar into dextrose), emulsin (acts upon sugars), peroxidase (oxidases blood), lipase (fat-splitting enzyme), pectinase (forms a vegetable jelly from pectin) and protase (digests protein). Together with its rich content of enzymes, alfalfa offers a broad spectrum of vitamins and minerals including pro-vitamin A (B-carotene), B6, C, D, E, K and P. Alfalfa yields 10 times more mineral value than average grains. The root penetrate sub-soil as far as 125 feet, thereby enabling it to absorb vital mineral nutrients beyond the reach of other vegetation (including calcium, magnesium, phosphorous and potassium).
Juniper berries: These berries contain volatile oil, resin, grape sugar, diterpene acids, tannins and vitamin C.
Celery: Celery, an alkalising food, contains apiol, coumarins, iron, phosphorus, potassium and sodium.
Dandelion leaf: Dandelion contains active carotenoids, sesquiterpene lactones, vitamins A, B and C and is rich in nutrient minerals.
Kelp: A natural food that is very low in cholesterol and is a good source of dietary fibre, riboflavin, vitamin C, vitamin K, pantothenic acid, zinc, copper, folate, calcium, iron, magnesium and manganese.
Magnesium oxide: Magnesium is a mineral necessary for critical functions of the body. Magnesium oxide (also known as magnesia) is an oral magnesium supplement.
Nettle leaf: This dried herb is high in chlorophyll, vitamins (including vitamin C), serotonin, histamine, acetyl-choline, minerals (including iron), calcium and silica.
Parsley leaf: Parsley is a herb that is one of nature’s richest sources of vitamin C (a powerful antioxidant). It also contains vitamin E, bioflavonoids, iron, folic acid and is a source of a precursor of carotene.
Radish leaf: Not only are radish greens edible, the leaves are the most nutritious part of the plant! They are a significant source of calcium, iron, magnesium, folate, vitamins A, C, K and other beneficial nutrients such as anthocyanins (a type of potent antioxidant).
Vitamin B6: An essential vitamin required for blood and haemoglobin formation; calcium and magnesium metabolism; conversion of glycogen to glucose (to be used as energy); energy production; metabolism of foods (protein, carbohydrates and fats); and zinc absorption.
Watercress: Watercress leaves contain high levels of iron-compound mineral salts, phosphates, potash, iodine, sulphur, folic acid and manganese.
