    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, edema, 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 edema on the limbs and face, characterized by sunken skin upon contact. Even in this extreme 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™?

    Most Chinese herbs in the formula, Poria, Polyporus, and Water Plantain Rhizome, are well known in Chinese medicine to promote urination. Studies have identified many components from each of these herbs that have marked effect on urination. 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.

    Differentiation in Usage
    Wateroff™ does not apply to the type of difficult urination manifested as burning sensations in passing urine and dark-colored urine. In such cases, use of UTflow™ should be instead considered.

    Side Effects
    Wu Ling Pian (Wan) has been safely used with few adverse effects when used as directed.
