Is excess fluid making you look and feel bloated?
It’s the silent, sneaky ninja of discomfort that can turn your grandest plans into a struggle to button your pants. We have a look at what’s causing your mild fluid retention and how to fix it.
Bloating, that pesky and often underestimated bodily quirk often caused by mild fluid retention, makes itself felt at the most inconvenient times.
And can leave you feeling like a balloon full of hot air, when all you’re trying to do is slip into your favourite pair of jeans.
Fortunately, there’s a simple solution that can help you regain your comfort.
But first, what’s causing the bloat?
Fluid retention, known as oedema, occurs when you accumulate excess fluid in your tissues1.
A common problem, it can lead to uncomfortable bloating and puffiness, affecting your legs, ankles and feet and even face and hands (rings feeling tight anyone?)
Causes2 include your body’s reaction to hot weather, a high salt intake, and hormones associated with the menstrual cycle.
Side effects from medication, poor nutrition and pregnancy are other common triggers.
When your body struggles to eliminate excess fluid through the normal channels, you end up feeling bloated and uncomfortable.
Nature’s solution: herbs to the rescue
Caruso’s Fluid Away is a dual-action formula specially designed for those experiencing mild fluid retention – and, yes, the dreaded, uncomfortable bloat.
The remedy contains a blend of herbs traditionally used in Western herbal medicine herbs – celery, dandelion and phyllanthus, which work together to provide temporary relief from exactly that, as well as supporting your body’s natural waste elimination processes.
Let’s take a closer look:
The dandelion difference
Dandelion, a well-known natural diuretic3, has been used in traditional western herbal medicine for centuries to increase urine output and temporarily relieve mild fluid retention.
By aiding the body’s natural elimination processes, dandelion has also been used in traditional Western herbal medicine to reduce abdominal bloating and promote healthy liver function.
Celery seed: your bladder’s buddy
Celery might be a regular in the kid’s lunchboxes, but celery seeds (Apium graveolens) have been used as a medicinal herb4 since ancient times.
These tiny seeds support urinary tract function and have been traditionally used in western herbal medicine to increase urine output and reduce abdominal bloating.
They may also relieve inflammation and joint health support.
Phyllanthus amarus (stonebreaker)
With a rich history of use in Ayurvedic medicine, Phyllanthus amarus is known for its ability to support urinary tract health, enhance urine output and help to protect the liver, as well as assisting the body’s natural waste elimination processes.
