What is a water loss supplement?

Water makes up approximately 60% of the adult human body and is an essential nutrient for every cell. It plays many vital roles, including transporting substances in the blood, such as protein and carbohydrates, flushing waste, regulating our internal temperature, and lubricating joints. Therefore, it is essential that we maintain the correct levels of hydration for both health and performance, as too little or too much water in the body can be problematic.

Some people may need to carefully reduce their water content for short periods, such as athletes  competing in weight category sports, e.g, boxing and MMA, and bodybuilders wishing to optimise their muscle definition in preparation for a competition.

To achieve this, some form of diuretic, commonly referred to as a‘water tablet’, is often used. These are substances that help the body to eliminate excess water.

There are a variety of diuretic medications on the market, which are used to treat conditions such as high blood pressure, heart failure and swollen tissues. However, these are only available on prescription and are associated with a number of unpleasant and potentially dangerous side effects, ranging from headache, skin rash, muscle cramps and diarrhoea to electrolyte imbalances, kidney failure and irregular heart beat.

A water loss supplement is a combination of natural substances which produce a diuretic effect without the side effects associated with prescription medications. For example, the plant ‘Horsetail’, has been shown to be as effective as the diuretic medication hydrochlorothiazide without causing significant changes in the elimination of Electrolytes (1). A number of these substances, such as Dandelion and Green Tree Extract, have been used by women for many years to help reduce premenstrual water retention.

What are the benefits of a Water Loss supplement?

The key ingredients of Time 4 Water Loss have been shown scientifically to have a natural diuretic effect and so enhance fluid loss (1,2,3,4,5,6).

Why Time 4 Water Loss?

Time 4 Water Loss is a high strength natural diuretic formula designed to eliminate excess water to aid the reduction of bloating and body weight, and enhance muscle definition. This combination of ingredients work synergistically to help the body to shed water beneath the skin whilst preventing the muscle cramps associated with some diuretics.

 Note: Time 4 Water Loss will not reduce your levels of body fat and it should only be used as a way to eliminate water from under the skin to achieve the ‘ripped’ appearance and to help you make weight in preparation for competition once fat body levels have been reduced sufficiently.

If you experience sudden or severe water retention, you should seek medical attention immediately, as this can be due to a condition such as heart failure or kidney disease.
