6 Simple And Effective Home Remedies For Water Retention

Water retention or fluid retention, is the accumulation of excess body fluid in certain areas of the body. It is, in the worse cases, quite the unsightly looking condition.

In milder condition, it can cause someone to look obese despite not being overweight. It can also cause pressure fluctuations and in the worst of cases, even a coma.

7 Science Backed Home Remedies For Stomach Ulcers

Peptic ulcers are small open sores that develop in the lining of the stomach or small intestine. Known as gastric ulcers and duodenal ulcers respectively, this condition affects more than 6 million Americans each year.

The most common symptoms of an ulcer span burning pain in the stomach, heartburn, nausea, and a feeling of fullness or bloating. Less common signs include faintness, changes in appetite, black stools, vomiting, unexplained weight loss, and difficulty breathing. If left untreated peptic ulcers can be life threatening; they can cause complications like stomach bleeding, holes in the gastrointestinal tract, and even stomach cancer.

Ulcers develop when acids begin to eat away at the surface of the stomach or small intestine. Although our digestive tract is covered in a mucous layer that helps protect against stomach acid, if the amount of acid is increased – or the mucus is decreased – it causes inflammation that can lead to the development of an ulcer.

In addition to this potent substance, it also contains a high concentration of two lesser known antioxidants, aspalathin and nothofagin. These polyphenol antioxi…
