Now that you’ve spent the last 6 months climbing stairs for 2 hours a day and drowning yourself in protein powder, it would be a shame to let a few pounds of water weight get in the way of you and that national fitness title. Xtract is a water regulation product designed for the serious fitness competitor and weekend event-goer alike.
Whether you’re dropping water weight to reveal a toned six-pack on a lighted stage or simply want to lose a few pounds of water bloating before a big day, Xtract claims to be the product for you.
However, it’s important to keep in mind that altering your body’s water retention can be a tricky process so we took a closer look at the Xtract formula to determine for ourselves whether or not this process can be done in a healthy manner.
Xtract by Axis Labs contains a powerful combination of antidiuretic ingredients that encourage your body to expel any excess water it’s holding onto. However, Axis Labs has also taken into consideration that possible health problems that can be associated with excess water loss such as: dehydration and nutrient deficiency, so they’ve come up with a 2-step system to help you battle both water retention and the possible side effects of losing all that water.
As mentioned before, Xtract contains ingredients that take a two-sided approach to water regulation in the body. These two methods are:
HyperDry Infusion: By taking advantage of completely natural, herbal extracts that act as powerful diuretics, Xtract is able to encourage excess water expulsion while infusing the body with essential vitamins and minerals.
These diuretic ingredients include: Dandelion Root, Horsetail, and Arctostaphulos Uva Ursi that work synergistically to expel water without completely depleting sodium and potassium sources.
In addition, these ingredients, like Dandelion Root and Uva Ursi are high in vitamins and minerals. This factor is important because while they act as powerful diuretics, they simultaneously deposit essential nutrients like vitamins A, C, D and B as well as iron, magnesium and zinc into your blood stream and tissues.
Electrolyte Infusion: This aspect of the Xtract formula is probably the most important part of the water loss process. Electrolyte infusion replenishes your body with a blend of key electrolytes to help balance water loss with nutrient replenishment.
The ingredients used to carry out the replenishment stage are: calcium, potassium and magnesium. All 3 of these ingredients (plus several more) promote natural fluid balance as well as proper nerve transmission and muscle cell volumization (and no one complains about a little muscle cell volumization).
Although there are no serious side effects associated with Xtract if the product is taken properly, it is important to remember that depleting your body’s water store over an extended period of time can lead to serious health problems.
This product is great for the every-few-months fitness competitor and for those trying to drop weight for yearly events, but this is not a product to be taken over an extended period of time.
Also, keep in mind that Xtract takes at up to 72 hours to reach its potential results so make sure you take this product 3 days before the event you’re preparing for.
We’re impressed with Xtract and the consideration its put into the health issues that can arise while using water regulation products. Because of this, we feel that Xtract is a safe product to take no matter the event you’re preparing for. Just keep in mind, water regulation products in general are not meant to be taken over an extended period of time.
