Water Retention

Water retention is also known as Fluid Retention. It signifies an abnormal accumulation of fluid in the circulatory system or within the tissues or cavities of the body. Water is found both inside and outside the body's cells. Water retention is a classic symptom of premenstrual syndrome (PMS). For most women, water retention is just a monthly bother — but in some cases, it can be severe enough to interfere with daily activities. 
In order to control the water retention or Salutation for the water retention you should do the following:
  • Drink 6 to 8 glasses of water daily. 
  • Cut back on the sodium in your diet.
  •  Eat a healthy, well-balanced diet that includes a lot of vegetables, grains and other high-fiber foods. 
  • Deficiencies in protein, calcium, magnesium and vitamins B1, B5 and B6 may also lead to problems with water retention.
