Getting absolutely shredded and “stage ready” involves not only dropping body fat extremely low but eliminate excess water weight. You see, when you’re trying to get to your leanest physique every, your body fights you tooth and nail to hold onto that precious water. And, while your mind and muscles certainly need sufficient amounts of the life-sustaining liquid, it’s also covering up the chiseled physique you need to showcase.
The key to beating the bloat and ridding your body of unsightly, stubborn water weight lies in Hydra Steel.
What is Hydra Steel?
Hydra Steel is an advanced, all-natural diuretic supplement to help you shed unwanted water weight while preserving valuable electrolytes that support optimal muscle function and performance. Hydra Steel works quickly, in as little as 10 days, helping you achieve the lean, ripped, chiseled physique you’ve always wanted.
Why is Hydra Steel Better?
Anytime you’re forcing your body to increase water removal, you’re putting yourself at risk for dehydration, cramping, and host of other health complication. This is partly why diuretics, particularly prescription diuretics, have gotten such a bad rap.
Unlike synthetic diuretics that deplete your body of valuable electrolytes, Hydra Steel uses only natural ingredients that safely eliminate unwanted water from your body, while restoring valuable electrolytes. Ensuring that you’re never at risk for cramping, dehydration, or other issues assorted to diuretics use.
Added Electrolytes, too!
Traditional diuretics increase urine excretion of both water and electrolytes. Typical prescription diuretics inhibit electrolyte reabsorption, which enhances water removal from the body, but this puts you at risk for hypokalemia, low potassium.
Deficiencies of potassium can lead to impaired nerve and muscle function, particularly with regards to your skeletal muscles and heart! On top of that, you’re also at risk for dehydration, cramping, fatigue, and brain fog.
Hydra Steel combats the issues of conventional diuretics by including potassium and magnesium, two essential electrolytes that are commonly lost when using diuretics. Hydra Steel also includes vitamin B6, which helps balance sodium and potassium levels in the body and supports the production of critical neurotransmitters including dopamine, serotonin and adrenaline (epinephrine) which govern your mood, sense of well-being, motivation, and focus.
By including these essential nutrients, Hydra Steel not only protects against dehydration but promotes total body health and wellness, all while helping you shed that unwanted water weight!
What’s in Hydra Steel?
Dandelion Leaf (125mg)
Easily recognized by its brilliant yellow flower, dandelion is a plant familiar to us all. Aside from its beauty, dandelion (taraxicum officiale) is also an incredibly powerful natural diuretic due to its high taraxasterol content. Taraxasterols are potent phytochemicals then accelerate water secretion from the body and supports detoxification and purification.
Research notes that dandelion increases the activity of the kidneys as well as the frequency of urination. [1,2] Additionally, dandelion helps remove excess water from the body without dehydrating you, unlike prescription diuretics. Dandelion is able to support hydration due to its high content of potassium, a vital mineral lost in vast quantities when using traditional diuretic options.
Corn Silk (62.5mg)
You know those annoying threads that you have to remove when grilling up some fresh summer corn?
That’s what corn silk is.
Historically, the threads of corn silk were used to treat a host of urinary tract ailments including bladder infections, kidney stones, and bedwetting. Corn silk was even used to combat prostate inflammation, believe it or not!
These days, corn silk is still used by rural peoples to treat these conditions and consumed as a tea. Scientific studies confirm these ancient healing practices were valid as corn silk does alleviate symptoms commonly experienced during urinary tract infections (UTIs), and it may even improve glucose metabolism too, another vital feature for getting super lean [3,4]
Juniper Berry (50mg)
Juniper berry has a rich history of use as a diuretic, with some accounts dating its use back to the Medieval ages! Research notes that juniper berry significantly increases urine volume, helping your flush out unwanted water weight.  Juniper is rich in terpinen-4-ol , a terpene molecule that can increase water excretion from the body without depleting potassium. 
But that’s not all, juniper berry also has been used to provide relief from arthritis, nerve pain, and the common cold.
Nettle Leaf Extract (32.5mg)
Named for the tiny stinging hairs covering its surface, stinging nettle leaf is another pro-diuretic plant that stimulates renal function to increase production of urine (diuresis). [8,9] Nettle leaf also offers a number of other benefits to both men and women. The leaves on the plant contain potent anti-inflammatory properties by limiting prostaglandins and it may even reduce symptoms of hay fever due to its antihistamine effects.  And to top it off, nettle may even be useful for combating symptoms of BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia). 
Caffeine Anhydrous (16mg)
When you’re dieting down and trying to get stage ready, you’re low on calories, and most likely water too, which is the perfect prescription for rock-bottom energy levels and motivation. Unlike other diuretics that include a truckload of caffeine, Hydra Steel contains about as much as a cup of green tea, so as to provide you with a smooth, gentle increase in energy to help you get through those final few days before your big moment.
Guarana Seed Extract (14mg)
Guarana is commonly used by Amazonian natives as an aphrodisiac, herbal remedy, stimulant, and natural diuretic. The plant contains guaranine, which is incredibly similar in structure to caffeine, another proven energy booster. Guarana provides a “slow burn” kind of energy that yields smooth, long-lasting energy to boost the immediate energy rush of caffeine anhydrous. Aside from its energy boosting qualities, guarana has also been used to relieve fatigue, improve concentration, heighten mood, and reduce appetite. [12,13]
Uva Ursi (2.5mg)
Also known as Bearberry, Uva Ursi is another plant traditionally used as a water-ridding agent in the treatment of urinary tract infections. Uva Ursi contains a compound known as arbutin, which has been shown in scientific research to exert strong diuretic effects in the body. Studies show the Uva Ursi stimulates a powerful release of fluid from the body, which reduces unwanted water weight, without putting excessive strain or stress on the kidneys.[14,15] On top of that, the plant may also offer some skin health benefits, as it helps whiten skin due to its inhibition of melanin, a pigment responsible for darkening the skin when exposed to UV light.
