I need OTC diuretic supplement I can buy at local pharmacy, just something to flush some water out. Don't want lasix or anything that affects hormone balance, just flush out extra water retention. What do you guys recommend as a good over the counter diuretic?
Dandelion root extract is going to be the best over the counter natural diuretic you are going to be able to find. Caffeine and alcohol are also diuretics, but be very careful with using those in excessive quantities.
Over the counter diuretics for water retention are often used as apposed to synthetic diuretics because they can provide the same benefits without the negative side effects of the prescription diuretics. Three well known over the counter diuretics for water retention are Parsley, Dandelion and Buchu herbs and extracts. These natural herbs have been shown to provide substantial relief from high blood pressure and water retention.
