What Makes Us Retain Water And How To Prevent This?

The edema is the name for this condition and it means excess fluid in cells and tissues. This results in joint pain and limb swelling and is common for pregnant women.

Edema is also common for those with sedentary lifestyle and those with meds and drugs. You might have noticed this too after a long flight for example.

This is not serious, but it can signal some bad things inside like liver issues, kidney failure or heart disease. Luckily, water retention is prevented and swelling can be avoided with diet changes.

The 6 main causes are:

Too much salt/sodium– eating too much salt makes this problem. To reduce it, use Himalayan or celtic salt and never table salt. Despite opinions, salt is not the only one with sodium. Other sources are veggies of cans, condiments and processed food.

Mg deficit– if you have this deficit, you have edema too. This mineral is vital for many processes and lack of this makes imbalance and edema. Studies shown that to have healthy Mg levels you need 200 mg Mg daily at least. Have supplements or Mg foods like avocado, nuts, grains, dark green veggies, yoghurt, spinach, chocolate, dry fruits.

Potassium deficit-this mineral is also helping for edema. Less sodium foods and more potassium ones. The potassium deficit makes spasms and cramps of muscles and strange weight gain. Potassium lowers sodium effects and stops water retention. Eat more rockmelon, honey melon and watermelon

Vitamin B6 deficit-this is vital for water balance and avoiding edema. Studies said more of this vitamin helps women to cure PMS edema. Have chicken, lean beef, turkey, potato, tuna, banana, dry fruits, pistachios, sunflower seeds

Dehydration– this is made from lack of water and if you lack water get at least 8 glasses per day. If you dislike this, have potassium juices. Also avoid packed juices and coffee.

Too much processed food– they are no good. They are loaded with sugar, sodium and additives. All these make imbalance in sugar and are toxic too for the liver and kidneys. Stop them!

Also not just diet changes but some herbs help too.

These remove edema the best:

Corn silk








Last and not least, always try to workout. Activity makes you free from toxins and healthier too.
