Everything You Need to Know About Water Retention

What is water retention?

Hormone changes, plane flights, and also too much salt can all cause your body to retain excess water. The body is made up mainly of water and when your hydration level is not balanced, your body tends to hang on to that water. Water retention can cause you to feel heavier than normal, and less nimble or active. It might also cause:

• bloating
• swelling
• puffiness

Water retention is actually a known health issue, and may occur on a daily basis. There are a number of factors that might cause it including:

• diet
• genetics
• menstrual cycle

You may be able to help to relieve water retention by making lifestyle changes.

• bloating, more specifically in the abdominal area
• having swollen legs, feet, as well as ankles
• puffiness of your abdomen, face, and hips as well
• weight fluctuations
• stiff joints
• indentations in your skin, not so different from what you see on your fingers when you have been in the bath or shower a long time
