Drainage is a technique used in phytotherapy to relieve organs predisposed to the elimination of toxins and metabolic waste, such as the kidneys and liver.
In fact, in order to function properly, our body must eliminate every day the waste and toxins produced by cellular metabolism or present in the environment around us. When this does not happen, due to poor eating habits and lifestyles, an accumulation of toxins is generated, resulting in the formation of free radicals and premature ageing, as well as the appearance of certain disorders such as swollen belly, water retention, skin blemishes and cellulite.
Water retention means the tendency to retain liquids in the body: when liquids are not disposed of properly, they stagnate, concentrating more in some areas, such as the abdomen, thighs and buttocks. Cellulite, on the other hand, is the result of the accumulation of a gelatinous substance under the skin, resulting from a disorder of the connective tissue and microcirculation. In this case the skin takes on the characteristic 'orange peel' appearance.
Drainage is carried out by stimulating in a prolonged way the organs predisposed to the elimination of toxins. H2O XPELL+ DRENA contains various plant extracts with a draining and purifying action, which help the body to eliminate excess fluids and waste:
- asparagus (Asparagus officinalis L.) and horsetail (Equisetum arvense L.) with draining, purifying and disinfecting properties for the urinary tract, useful to counteract the stagnation of body fluids and metabolic waste;
- green tea (Camelia sinensis (L.) Kuntze) and maté (Ilex paraguariensis A. St.-Hil.) with lipolytic and antioxidantproperties;
- pineapple (Pineapple comosus (L.) Merr.) with draining and purifying properties, rich in bromelain that improves microcirculation, promotes diuresis and counteracts the stagnation of liquids and cellulite blemishes.
- cherry (Prunus cerasus L.) with draining properties;
H2O XPELL+ DRENA is enriched with vitamin C, which contributes to the formation of collagen in the skin and protects cells from free radical damage.
H2O XPELL+ DRENA should preferably be taken in the morning for a period of at least 15 days. The best times to start a drainage and purification cycle are early spring and autumn to prepare the body for the seasonal change.
