A diuretic herb promotes the production and secretion of urine (and thus water) from the body

The increased rate of urination helps to relieve water retention in the body. Diuretic herbs work by causing the kidneys to excrete more sodium in urine. This in turn causes the body to try balancing out the higher sodium concentration by adding more water into the urine from your bloodstream. Diuretic herbs are also used to treat kidney stones, bladder ache, gonorrhea and scalding urine

Diuretic Herbs:

  • Dandelion leaf (Taraxacum officinale)
  • Corn silk (Zea mays)
  • Bearberry (Arctostaphylos uva-ursi)
  • Parsley (Petroselinum crispum)
  • Yarrow (Achillea millefolium)
