XPEL® leads the category by far in the natural diuretics race for competitive athletes.
Every competitor wants to peak on contest day – but no pro will look his or her best if they are “holding water,” which refers to excess pounds that blur muscle definition caused by excess extra-cellular water, or water weight that could be dropped through dehydration. It’s common among competitors to use a class of drugs called diuretics to shed excess water but unfortunately, many pharmaceutical drugs pose risks, from looking flat on contest day to sudden death. That’s why top competitors and coaches trust XPEL®, the most popular and effective natural diuretic, with millions of bottles sold.
The ‘Ripped’ Look
Pharmaceutical diuretics can pull off large amounts of retained water for a short period, providing competitors the “ripped” look. Such diuretics work on the kidney by blocking the return of electrolytes to the bloodstream, causing more water to be passed in the urine, so competitors urinate a lot. This pulled water is taken from the bloodstream and the spaces between cells, or interstitial spaces. Since interstitial water is what blurs muscular definition, competitors using Lasix et al. look more ripped onstage. Sounds simple, right? Not quite the whole story.
Dangers of Diuretics
If you are taking a pharmaceutical diuretic and urinating a lot, your body can lose too many electrolytes (sodium, chloride, potassium and magnesium). In a matter of hours, a person can enter into an electrolyte imbalance that can affect the function of the brain, muscles and heart. The loss of excess potassium and magnesium can cause an irregular heartbeat and sudden death. In fact, the abuse of pharmaceutical diuretics has proven to be the deadliest drug bodybuilding has yet seen.
Fortunately, there is a natural diuretic, XPEL®, with a time-proven formula that amateur and professional bodybuilders, Fitness, Figure and Bikini competitors have relied on to help lose water and dial in peak conditioning for 20 years.
#1 Natural Diuretic
XPEL® leads the category by far in the natural diuretics race for competitive athletes. XPEL® has built a legacy: it’s the bodybuilding and fitness industry’s #1 and most trusted natural diuretic and has been number one in the category for over a decade. It can help eliminate pounds of water in just a few days.
“XPEL® is used all the time by competitors who don’t want to take any chances with pharmaceutical diuretics” said Gerard Dente, founder and CEO of MHP, which makes XPEL®. “It’s very effective, not as harsh, and is not going to put your health at risk. XPEL® is something that a ton of competitors use to get rid of the water right before hitting the stage.”
8 Natural Herbs and Minerals
XPEL® is a researched blend of eight different natural herbs and minerals that assist water loss and is properly balanced with vital electrolytes to help prevent cramping. XPEL® is a potent herbal diuretic designed to eliminate excess water retention to rapidly reduce bloating and support weight loss.
“Some athletes are using different diuretics, but the pharmaceutical diuretics are very hard to predict,” Dente continued. “And they work differently in people and a lot of times, unfortunately, it’s hit or miss with those. Whereas with XPEL®, it’s effective but it’s natural, so it’s a little bit easier for competitors to monitor what’s going on.”
