1 Cut back on salt When your sodium levels are high, the kidneys hold on to excess water in an attempt to dilute the salt. Cut back on your intake.
2 Drink Coconut water It’s naturally high in potassium, which helps flush sodium out of the body and thereby reducing water retention.
3 Try dandy dandelion tea Also deemed as an alternative to coffee, this weed acts as a natural diuretic that cuts back excess water from the body. Don’t drink it if you have gall bladder issues, though.
4 Take in More H20 Sounds counter-intuitive, but the more water you drink, the more your body will flush out. This is especially important for those whose diets are rich in processed canned foods.
5 Snack on fruit and veg Increase your intake of fruits with high water content and vegetables that may help the kidneys flush out extra fluids. Cabbage, cucumber and watermelon are good options.
