Hi. I've started taking a body building supplement which requires me to drink lots of water. I've been going to the loo well over 10 times a day. Is this normal or should I be concerned?

Some supplements contain ingredients which may have a diuretic effect which will increase urinary frequency. Consult with a professional about the correct amount of fluid you need to take in. Drinking too much water can cause a condition called hyponatraemia. A fitness expert once told me about a solution that can be used to help your body utilize water as best possible during fitness training to prevent dehydration. You add 1 tablespoon of himalaya salt to 1 litre of boiling water. You then use 1-2 tablespoons of that solution per 1 litre of purified drinking water. You can also use tissue salt no. 9 to assist in maintaining the correct fluid balance

If the frequent urination persist, you would need to consult with your medical practitioner to rule out any medical causes

All the best
