What are over the counter water pills used for?

This article aims to offer a sort of a last resort solution for the hopeless weight loser who's trier just about anything: weight loss programmes, fad diets, a lot of exercise, and so forth.

Modern medicine has got a backdoor solution to kicking off those extra pounds which make a person feel unattractive and otherwise deal proper damage to the said's general well-being; namely: water pills.

Simply put, water pills are a diuretic of a sort which help the human body rid itself of the excess water it may be accumulating and thus causing bloating and weight gain, and in turn preventing the person to achieve proper weight loss. The pills are designed to flush out the excess water from the system and thus allow the person to feel more energetic.

Nowadays, there are many brands of water pills – most of which are available over-the-counter. Some require prescriptions, others do not. Some are designed for treating high blood pressure, and the particular kind is supposed to flush out excess water, but also salts, and thus lower blood pressure.

The Explanation: How do over the counter water pills really work?

An important thing to note is that OCT Water pills work as appetite suppressants, which means that they will make the treated feel just as full even while on an empty stomach.

It is very important to consult the family doctor before ever engaging in a course of water pills. Obviously, there are some risks involved in taking these. Namely, the human body needs water and salt, and as the pills are designed to expel the very two factors from the human kidney's, "too much of a good thing" may turn hostile against the treated by means of dehydration, dizziness, muscle fatigue and exhaustion.

The two most dominant brands on the market are Diurex and Aqua-Ban.

Another important point is that the weight lost via these pills is merely temporary. This is because the human body is composed of somewhat above 60% of water. This means that the person loses actual weight by consuming the pills, and not merely actual body fat. What this also means is that so soon as the course of treatment is concluded, the person will start gaining weight all over again.

The ingredients present in the pills should normally include: St. John's wort, 5-hydroxytryptophan, and so forth.

Some of the active substances could interact with other medication the patient may be taking (such as blood thinners, etc.), and this is why it is, again, very important to consult the family doctor before ever even engaging in the course of treatment.
