Water Retention

What is Water Retension ?

Plane flights, hormone changes, and too much salt can all cause your body to retain excess water. Your body is made up mainly of water. When your hydration level is not balanced, your body tends to hang on to that water.

Usually, water retention may cause you to feel heavier than normal, and less nimble or active. It can also cause:

1) Bloating

2) Puffiness

3) Swelling

Water retention is a common health issue, and can occur on a daily basis. A number of factors can cause it including:

1) Diet

2) Menstrual cycle

3) Genetics

You can help relieve water retention by making lifestyle changes.

Symptoms of Water Retension:

1) Bloating, especially in the abdominal area.

2) Swollen legs, feet, and ankles.

3) Puffiness of the abdomen, face, and hips.

4) Stiff joints

5) Weight fluctuations

6) Indentations in the skin, similar to what you see on your fingers when you've been in the bath or shower a long time
