    What does it do?

    Help Maintain Healthy Water Metabolism

    How wonderful it would be to relieve yourself unobstructed, like a powerful fire hose. Has it been years since you’ve had a powerful urination? Does it seem like your body feels like a full reservoir, retaining water and making you feel very heavy?

    When your body doesn’t metabolize water efficiently, small blood vessels leak excess fluid into tissues, causing uncomfortable swelling. The inability of the body to metabolize and eliminate water is, at best, a nuisance that leads to weight gain, and, at worst, has more severe consequence. Thankfully, there is an all-natural remedy to address water retention and swelling, and restore water balance in the body.

    Ancient TCM Formula Addresses Root Cause of Water Retention

    Wateroff™ is based on the classic formula, invented a thousand years ago, Wu Ling San. This all-natural botanical-sourced blend of five traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) herbs addresses the root cause of water accumulation and dampness in the interior, which is manifested as decreased urine output, water retention, loose stools, and insatiable thirst in which drinking is immediately followed by throwing up.

    In some people, water retention causes unhealthy weight gain, and in more severe cases, it may manifest as sunken skin upon contact on the limbs and face. Even in this situation of water retention, Wateroff™ may be used to excrete extra water from the body, thus reducing excessive body weight.

    The water retention pattern Wateroff™ addresses is due to the failure of the bladder to disperse water accumulation. This water accumulation is a result of weakness in Spleen function and Yang (the warming property of the body), according to TCM theory. When this water retention pattern is present, physical characteristics may manifest as pale in the face, white tongue coating, and a floating and rapid pulse.

    How Does Wateroff™ Work?

    This dietary TCM herbal supplement promotes urination and removes dampness. Additionally, it warms the Yang. In the formula, Fu Ling (Poria), Zhu Ling (Polyporus), Ze Xie (Water Plantain Rhizome), and Bai Zhu (Atractylodes Rhizome) all have a function in promoting urination and draining dampness. Together, they act synergistically in removing excess fluids from the body.

    Fu Ling (Poria) and Bai Zhu (Atractylodes Rhizome) both also work to strengthen the Spleen.

    And finally, Gui Zhi (Cinnamon Twig) warms Yang and thus provides the needed warming effect to dissipate water in the body. It also promotes sweating.

    Does Research Support Wateroff™?

    Poria, Polyporus, and Water Plantain Rhizome are well known in Chinese medicine for supporting healthy urination and eliminating dampness. Studies have identified many compounds from these herbs that support the traditional use of the formula. 1

    How do I use it?

    The standard dosage for Wateroff™ is 6 tablets each time, taken 2 to 3 times daily with or before meals. One bottle lasts 11 to 17 days. The dose may be doubled for a quicker and stronger response as needed (e. g., in an acute phase). Consult your practitioner for precise dosage recommendations based on body weight and other factors.

    Wateroff™ has a mild action and therefore it usually takes time before its effects become apparent. It may take one month or more before symptoms begin to improve. An initial course of treatment is suggested as 4 - 6 bottles taken at the full dose.

    1. Use with caution during pregnancy.
    2. Do not use for a prolonged period as it drains excess fluids from the body.
    3. Keep out of reach of children.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finished morning puffy faces! I used to take amlodipine for help with water eliminating! When I saw the presentation of water off pills I order it! Yes the elimination of water is more natural all day instead of part of other day! For the first time the swollen face I had every morning is gone . My mind is free and alert again!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great I bought these 2 months ago because I had fluid in my ears which sometimes gave me headaches and this REALLY works. I would feel something in my ears so I would take less than the recommended dosage and it works like it says. I am buying more.
