Capisette helps with reducing swelling by providing your body with the electrolytes needed to restore proper fluid transfer in your cells. It then gets rid of excess fluid using natural diuretics. Here is how the supplements in capisette may help with reducing swelling: Evidence suggests that using grape seed extract may improve chronic venous insufficiency, which causes swelling when blood pools in the legs. Horse chestnut seed extract is beneficial in controlling pain and reducing swelling. If you use diuretics, your doctor may have you supplement with potassium aspartate, since diuretics flush out potassium from the body and cause a deficiency (Caution: Do not take extra potassium without informing your doctor). Who is affected by fluid retention: The condition occurs when certain forces increase capillary permeability or interstitial oncotic pressure. To simplify matters, the swelling occurs as excessive fluid under the skin accumulates in the spaces within the tissues that are outside of the blood vessels. These spaces may also be referred to as compartments or interstitial spaces. The body's many organs also have these interstitial spaces, or areas between the cells, where fluid can accumulate. However, swelling most commonly occurs in the feet and legs. This type of swelling is known as peripheral swelling. Causes of Fluid Retention: There a multitude of internal and external influences that can lead to swelling in the feet, legs, ankles, and other parts of your body. The cause of swelling can even remain unknown, though this occurs most often in women rather than men. The existing risk factors, underlying medical conditions, and triggers include: Varicose veins or thrombophlebitis (blood clot resulting in swelling), heart failure, cirrhosis of the liver, liver and kidney disease (nephrotic syndrome), low levels of albumin in the blood, standing or sitting for extended durations, excessive salt intake/salt retention.
