Natural Diuretics

I recently wrote about green tea being a natural breath freshener. Another benefit? It’s ability to balance fluid levels as a natural diuretic. Some other options include cranberry juice (the pure, unsweetened is best) and dandelion root tea. 

In the solid food arena, the following are known to balance fluid levels and reduce bloating:

  • watermelon
  • parsley
  • tomatoes
  • cucumbers
  • celery
  • asparagus
  • cantaloupe

Load up on this list to help flush out the bad stuff and let some H2O and nutrients in!

  1. this is good to know but just an idea…how about natural food that helps you lose weight or maybe even build muscle?
    I just thought it might be a good idea for another piece on here

  2. Great tips! I know that eating more fruits alkalizes your body (that is what I need!) So I am juicing every morning. I’d love to see some juicing recipes on here too. Thanks!

  3. Annie,
    Girl, I went and bought everything on this list. Thanks for the tips. Keep them coming! I just bought that Montel Williams blender machine, and I was wondering if you had any good veggie combo ideas to blend together for a smoothie? Talk soon! :)

    God Bless,
    Charmaine

  4. Annie thanks so much for this awesome post. I strive to live a healthy, balanced and as natural as possible life. Green tea is a favorite of mine (all tea actually) and the other info is so helpful!!
