Advantages: Work and are easy to take and won't break the bank
Disadvantages: None at all
Ok I'm a bloater! I retain water like a good un particularly around that dreaded 'Time of the month' which is what brought me on to the purchase of a product such as this.
I have always noticed around the time of the month that my belly feels rounder and my tight fitting clothes look to small for me. I never realised why really until not so long ago and I spotted an article about such matters and the woman talking about it mentioned these and that is what prompted me to buy a couple of boxes on impulse to try!
White and light blue box (the blue bit on the box looks like water lol) and I'm told on the front of the box that they are indeed Aqua Ban Tablets 'Helps reduce pre-menstrual bloat, puffiness and tenderness by eliminating excess pre-menstrual water weight' and then I'm told that my box contains 30 tablets within in. Other information given on the box includes tells me a little bit about the product, the ingredients are listed and directions for use are given and of course contact details for the company that manufactures the product are also listed. Inside the box there is a leaflet fully listing warnings and some of the information given on the box all over again and then inside the box there are 2 'trays' of pills that you simply push to pop the pills out of. Easy enough to understand all the information given and the pills are easy enough to remove out of their foil and see-through plastic trays of course.
A Bit About The Product According To The Information Given On The Box:
Each month up to 2-3lbs of excess water can be trapped in your body tissue just before your period. AquaBan diuretic tablets work to gently help your body eliminate excess water.
All you do is take 2 of these light blue and round tasteless tablets four of five days before your period is expected. You take them 3 times a day and after meals.
Easy to take, simply take them with a glass of water or whatever. They are only the size of a standard round paracetamol and for that reason easy enough to take.
Do They Work?:
For me yes they do actually. I started to keep a record of when my period is/was due and found that all I needed to tide me over was one box of tablets.
I wasn't sure what to expect from them though really. Reading that they are/were a diuretic I thought maybe they'd make me pass more water and I'd be spending my life on the toilet. That for me simply isn't true and I haven't noticed any change in my passing water habits at all which is a good job as I have been doing a few car boot sales of late from 5am till 2pm and toilet facilities haven't been good!
I have noticed that I'm not so bloated as I used to be and that my clothes are no where as tight as they once were. I'm also not as tender and all round more comfortable. These do not combat pain as such but for sure, if your not feeling so bloated and/or tender they are great and you do feel a bit better even if you get cramps.
I really do like and appreciate these and always have a few boxes of them knocking around my house. You take them with pain killers etc too making them a great extra product to take to help you through tender women's times! Excellent and a must try for women with period issues!
At about £3.59 a box (in Superdrug and Boots and all good chemist and supermarkets) these are also available in herbal option.
