H20 DEPLETION MATRIX
Celery Seed Extract
Celery seed oil is a supplement containing a high amount of volatile compounds known as phthalides. These compounds, as well as the major component Sedanolide, appear to have general antioxidative properties and have traditionally been used as a diuretic.
- Celery seed extract may help improve overall wellness, joint support, and digestive health.
Taraxacum Officinale Leaf Extract (Dandelion)
Taraxacum officinale, also known as dandelion, is a vegetable that has a diuretic (water loss) effect when ingested.
- It is also a source of potassium and thereby helps replace diuresis-induced losses.
- Dandelion may help ease digestion by increasing the rate at which food leaves the stomach and enters the small intestine.
- A study conducted by Clare et al. (2009) found dandelion three times a day in otherwise healthy subjects reported an increase in urination frequency relative to the same subjects the day before and after supplementation.
Uva-Ursi is an herbal compound which has the effects of a mild diuretic and astringent (anti-inflammatory).
- It helps to reduce accumulation of uric acid in the bladder and help the overall health and productivity of the urinary tract.
- Uva-Ursi may also help reduce high blood pressure and bloating.
- Its anti-inflammatory effects can help to tighten upper layers of the mucous membrane – relieving irritation and improving tissue firmness.
Caffeine Anhydrous is simply caffeine with no water (around .05%). This has been shown to make caffeine anhydrous more potent because the body will absorb it more readily.
- Caffeine acts as a mild diuretic (water loss).
- Although caffeine can affect a wide variety of motor and mental functions it is most commonly used to improve endurance exercise, focus, and cognitive performance, and improve energy levels.
- Caffeine has also been shown to have a thermogenic effect (heating/calorie burning) at rest and may increase the use of fats for fuel during exercise.
- According to the research higher doses of caffeine, in the 250-450mg range, are needed to provide an ergogenic benefit.
- In a study conducted by Astorino et al. (2010), active men given caffeine before resistance training were able to increase maximal torque, power, and volume by 5-8%
Yerba matte is a south American plant that offers the stimulative effects of coffee with the health benefits of tea. It contains caffeine, theobromine, theophylline, and numerous antioxidants.
- Yerba Matte may prevent lipid oxidation, which decreases the number of free radicals produced in the body.
- It has been shown to reduce fat as well as lower LDL cholesterol.
- Human studies have shown a reduction in inflammation when supplementing with Yerba Matte.
- A 2009 study performed by the Federal University of Santa Catarina noted Yerba Mate ingestion for 20-40 days, in healthy individuals, was shown to reduce body fat content as well as lower LDL cholesterol. In turn, the reduction of body fat and LDL cholesterol levels aided in lowering systolic blood pressure.
Green Tea Extract is an herbal derivative from green tea leaves, containing antioxidant ingredients and caffeine.
- This extract contains high amounts of catechins, including EGCG which helps with the metabolism of fat at rest and during exercise performance.
- Green tea also reduces the formation of free radicals in the body which protect cells and molecules from damage.
- A meta-analysis of 11 studies looking at green tea consumption over a period of 12 weeks minimum noted, on average, 1.31kg weight loss.
Throughout history asparagus's most widespread health application has been for the support of fluid balance and cleansing.
- Asparagus is a good source of dietary fiber, folic acid, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin B6, and several minerals.
- Asparagus is used along with lots of fluids as “irrigation therapy” to increase urine output.
- It is also used to treat urinary tract infections and other conditions of the urinary tract that cause pain and swelling.
Watermelon extract is high in vitamin C and citrulline. It is often used to improve hydration levels and replenish depleted electrolytes.
- At the same time, watermelon extract can increase urine output, making it an effective diuretic.
- Watermelon extract also has additional benefits such as soothing sore muscles and lowering blood pressure.
- According to a new study in the Journal of Agricultural Food and Chemistry, drinking watermelon juice before a hard workout helped reduce athletes' heart rate and next-day muscle soreness. That's because watermelon is rich in an amino acid called L-citrulline, which the body converts to L-arginine, an essential amino acid that helps relax blood vessels and improve circulation.
Ginger is a spice that can reduce nausea and ease digestion quite effectively.
- It is commonly used to treat a myriad of stomach problems. It helps to reduce everything from heartburn to gas and diarrhea.
- A meta-analysis conducted by Ernst et al. (2000) found ginger was able to reduce nausea induced by seasickness, morning sickness, and chemotherapy induced sickeness.
Juniper extract helps fight inflammation and various GI issues including upset stomach, heartburn, flatulence, bloating, and loss of appetite.
- Juniper extract has been used as a diuretic. This activity is most likely due to the action of terpinen-4-ol, which is known to increase renal glomerular filtration rate.
Buchu is harvested from the dried leaves obtained from three species of Barosma.
- Historically, buchu has been used to treat inflammation, kidney and urinary tract infections; and as a diuretic.
Taurine has a myriad of benefits. From helping the body to metabolize fat, improving insulin sensitivity, raising testosterone levels, as an antioxidant, higher performance and quicker recovery during athletic training and increasing cardiovascular health… it goes without saying that Taurine is a great ingredient to have in your wheelhouse
- Zhang et al. (2004) found that individuals who supplemented with taurine for 1 week before an exhaustive exercise bout significantly improved time to exhaustion, VO2 max, and maximal workload. It also decreased exercise induced DNA damage.
Astragalus is considered an adaptogenic herb that helps protect the body against various stresses, including mental, emotional, and physical stress.
- Astragalus also demonstrates the capability, via adipocytes (fat cells), to improve glucose metabolism and diabetic symptoms through a variety of mechanisms.
- Astragalus can enhance exercise endurance and performance. Studies using the herb found that supplementation reduced exercise-induced accumulation of the byproducts blood lactate and ammonia. This resulted in less fatigue and translates into improved exercise performance.
Chromium is a mineral our bodies use in small amounts for normal body functions, such as digesting food.
- Chromium helps to move blood sugar from the bloodstream into the cells to be used as energy and to turn fats, carbohydrates, and proteins into energy.
- Chromium also helps regulate fat and cholesterol in the body and may reduce food craving.
- A study conducted by Anton et al. (2008) found that subjects supplementing with chromium over an 8 week period reduced hunger, cravings, and lost more weight compared to a placebo group.
ELECTROLYTE REPLENISHMENT MATRIX
Potassium is a mineral found in varying amounts in almost all foods.
- It is needed for building and keeping strong bones.
- It also helps control the amount of calcium in the body and urine.
- If potassium levels get too high or too low, the heart and nervous system completely shut down. Many people in the U.S. often fail to obtain optimal amounts of this nutrient and pay a health cost for it.
Calcium is an electrolyte that is necessary for many functions, especially muscle contraction.
- Therefore, the level of calcium in the blood has to be kept in a narrow range at all times.
- If the blood calcium level drops, then the bones will release calcium until an optimal level is once again achieved. However, this compromises the strength of the bones.
- Importantly, calcium is lost in sweat, so prolonged exercise requires calcium replenishment.
Magnesium is an essential mineral and electrolyte. It is involved in protein synthesis, ATP formation, metabolism of carbohydrates and fats, and bone strength.
- Magnesium deficiencies are the second most common deficiency in developed countries. A lack of magnesium will raise blood pressure and reduce insulin sensitivity.
- Increases in free and total testosterone have been noted in sedentary and athletic populations when supplementing with magnesium supplementation. It also acts as a muscle relaxer and may improve aerobic performance.
- Brilla et al. (1992) discovered 26 untrained subjects who participated in a 7-week strength training program in conjunction with magnesium supplementation were able to increase testosterone relative to baseline.
Q: What is the best way to take H2O Revolution?
A: As a dietary supplement, take 1 Serving (3 Capsules) in the morning on an empty stomach & 1 serving before your mid-day meal.
Q: What is a diuretic?
A: A diuretic is a substance or ingredient, such as the ones in H2O revolution, that promote the expulsion of body fluids via urine. Higher urine output lessens total body water retention.
