What You Should Know
Water pills have been in the weight loss market for several decades. One of the first was Dexatrim, which sold the idea that water pills could cause weight loss. Vitamin World Extra Strength Water Pill is stronger than most over the counter diuretics. Water pills work by forcing water out of the body. If a dieter is retaining extra water, this could cause immediate weight loss, but the problem causing the water retention is not treated with diuretics. As soon as the dieter stops taking the diuretic, the weight will return. Diuretics cause kidneys to work harder. When prescription diuretics are given, patients often have to undergo regular kidney tests to assure kidney function is not reduced.
List of Ingredients
Potassium, Buchu Extract, Uva Ursi Extract, Juniper Berry and Parsley.
Four of the five ingredients in Vitamin World Extra Strength Water Pill are diuretics. The sole purpose of a diuretic is to relieve water retention. The fifth ingredient is potassium. Potassium loss is a negative side effect of increased urination. The body simply rinses out potassium with urine. Reduced potassium levels can cause muscle cramping, stiffness and death. Professional bodybuilders often take diuretics before competition. There is at least once case of death associated with diuretic abuse.
One bottle of Vitamin World Extra Strength Water Pill contains 100 tablets for $17.99. If the buyer orders one bottle they receive one bottle free. Diuretics should not be taken long-term.

Diuretics help some dieters relieve water retention, but the effect is only temporary. The root cause of water retention must be addressed for a long-term solution. Weight loss associated with diuretics is not the same as fat loss. While Vitamin World Extra Strength Water Pill may help the dieter feel better by reducing the number on the scale, the effect will last only a short while. The body must retain water for normal organ function. In order to process extra urine, the kidneys must work overtime. Dieters with impaired kidney function should never use this supplement.
