Hi this is Rachael Richardson with Nutrolution in Miami Beach, Florida. In this clip we are talking about what foods are natural diuretics. So I would like to first distinguish between healthy natural diuretics and unhealthy ones. So the ones that we are more aware of in terms of unhealthy ones are your caffeine and your alcohol and those will actually cause you to have more water leaving your body which is what a diuretic is. However, there are also some healthy ones out there and I actually have a list right here for you since there is too many to say but these are all healthy diuretics. In other words they help keep your urinary tract and your system, your water system, your urinary system in your body moving very well and getting out the toxins that we need to. So these are some foods to focus on and so just in a nutshell putting together a nice plate of vegetables, things like celery, carrots, cabbage, brussel sprouts, asparagus, all these foods that help keep our systems moving healthy and serve as natural diuretics in our system. So keep in mind if you have been over consuming your diuretics and I'm talking about the unhealthy ones here things like caffeine and alcohol it is really really important to get in more water through your foods and through your beverages so getting some healthy mineral water, some things like herbal tea and things like that that won't keep water flushing out of your system.
