6 Simple Ways to Reduce Water Retention

6 Simple Ways to Reduce Water Retention

5. Try Taking Dandelion

Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) is an herb that has been used as a natural diuretic in folk medicine for a long time (11).

Natural diuretics may help reduce water retention by making you pee more often.

In one study, 17 volunteers took three doses of dandelion leaf extract over a 24-hour period.

They monitored their fluid intake and output during the following days, and reported a significant increase in the amount of urine produced (12).

Although this was a small study with no control group, the results indicate that dandelion extract may be an effective diuretic.

Bottom Line: Dandelion may help reduce water retention, especially when consumed as a leaf extract.
