Ikaria & Tea - diuretics - part two

Ikaria and Tea - part two (see all here)

The other "magic" part of the Ikarian tea is the "diuretic" factor. I found a brief description of why diuretics are important:

Foods like salt and sugar cause the body to retain considerable fluids. They may lead to bloating and water retention. Often inadequate protein in the diet can lead to fluid retention. When the body does not get enough amino acids or B-vitamins, it may accumulate excess fluids...

Natural diuretics are natural foods or herbs that allow increased flow of urine and thereby aid removal of fluids from the body. While natural diuretics aid removal of excess fluids from the body, it may also mean loss of important vitamins and minerals too. It is essential that they are supplemented to prevent loss of vital electrolytes...

Natural diuretics can aid in removal of excess fluids from the body and aid in treating of sciatica, kidney stone, lymphatic swelling, PMS, gonorrhea, liver disorders and high blood pressure...

So, if you didn't feel like making your own tea, but you wanted a diuretic herbal tea a la the Ikarians (though, perhaps, not precisely like them), you could purchase Alvita's Oatstraw Tea for your B-vitamin complex, diuretic herbal tea intake.
