Most people’s weight can fluctuate anywhere from 5 to 10 pounds a week. No wonder we all have days where we feel more fat and our pants just don’t seem to fit right. There are many products on the market that can help with water retention and feeling bloated. One of those products is Bloat-Less.
Bloat-Less is formulated with the woman in mind. It claims to help you with puffiness, bloating and temporary water gain. It can especially help you during that “time of the month.” I have to wonder, is Bloat-Less safe and can it really help you lose weight?
Bloat-Less has some specific key ingredients which include:
- Potassium- an important mineral for various health functions in your body. One of those key health functions is fluid balance in the body, which when unbalanced causes bloating and other discomforts. Potassium is also key in kidney function and many intra-cellular activities. When you have insufficient potassium in your body you retain more water which leads to you bloating. By putting potassium into your system, you reduce water retention and restore fluid equilibrium throughout your body. However there is risk in overdosing because it can cause tissue damage, as well as gastric and intestinal problems.
- Bloat-Less Herbal Blend Uva-ursi extract (a bearberry extract which is used to clear out bacteria associated with a urinary tract infection) Dandelion powder, Bucha powder, Hibiscus extract, parsley extract.
- Anti-Bloat Berry Blend- Cranberry (proven to help with urinary tract infections), Grape seed, Juniper Berry powder
All of these ingredients are natural and can help with water retention and even bladder function, but BEWARE, these ingredients will not provide weight loss that is permanent.
Just because ingredients are natural, doesn’t mean that there aren’t side-effects associated with them. Some side-effects of Bloat-Less can include: nausea, dizziness, headaches, and the excessive need to urinate. You also need to drink a lot of water with any type of cleanse so you don’t get dehydrated.
On the official website of Bloat-Less there is a very strong warning which says; “(State of California Prop 65) This product contains a chemical known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm.” That is a bit scary, you should probably consult a doctor before using this product!
Does Bloat-Less Work Well Enough to Buy?
Using a product like Bloat-Less can definitely help you lose some water weight and actually help with maintaining a healthy bladder. But, Bloat-Less is not going to remove fat and you will not see permanent weight loss results when using this product. I am also weary that there is such a strong warning on the website concerning Bloat-Less. That warning enough makes me skeptical of using this product.
