4. Nettle Tea

This tea is a diuretic particularly known for reducing bloating during menstruation. The tea can be used to treat joint pain, ease sore muscles and manage hay fever symptoms (10).

5. Fennel Seeds 

Fennel seeds act as a diuretic to help expel excess sodium and water from the kidneys (11).

To use, add 1 teaspoon of fennel seeds in a cup of hot water, and let it steep for 10 minutes. Strain and enjoy up to three times a day.



6. Cranberry juice

100% pure cranberry juice is highly beneficial for the urinary tract.

Not only can it help prevent urinary tract infections, it can also increase urine output to relieve edema (12).

Just make sure not to buy cranberry cocktail or juice with added sugars.
