Water retention and PMS-related water retention can be caused by several things and a nutrition deficit or imbalance is most certainly one of them!
There are some good natural ways to reduce water retention and if medical causes have been ruled out it could be time to try a nutritional approach and also to discuss things like Lymphatic Drainage Massage with your healthcare provider. Keep yourself active as being active is key to having a healthy lymphatic system.
TWO important minerals are most important in helping normalise water levels in the body and they are POTASSIUM and MAGNESIUM both of which are found at high levels in that protein’s Blissful Brown Rice & Raw Cacao organic super protein. Bananas are also a good source of POTASSIUM.
POTASSIUM decreases sodium levels and since high sodium levels cause water retention, opposing it with potassium will help reduce water retention.
MAGNESIUM and B6 can help with PMS style water retention.
We’ve created this delicious high protein super smoothie to be high in potassium and magnesium to help with water retention caused by a lack of these minerals.
250 ml nut milk
