Species nutrition are proud to announce the arrival of AQUALYZE, a scientifically researched diuretic that leaves you not only ‘cut and dried’ but actually produces significant benefits when it comes to boosting your overall health.

With AQUALYZE you will experience:

• Relief from temporary water retention
• Subsequent weight loss of 8-15lbs in as little as 12-15 hours
• Improved kidney function
• Tightening of loose skin
• A healthy balance of electrolytes (crucial to neural and metabolic function)

With the introduction of AQUALYZE we have bridged the gap between cosmetic and functional. The result is a product, which not only makes you look great, but also feel great and function at a much higher level. So what is in this new formula?

Read on and realize for yourself, the potential of this exciting new product…


In AQUALYZE you will find the following key ingredients in amounts specifically designed to give you maximum results in the minimum of time.

UVA URSI EXTRACT (Arctostaphylos Uva-Ursi). Standardized to provide a minimum 20% Arbutin.

Also known as Bearberry, Uva-Ursi has a long history of medical use as a diuretic. It promotes a rapid expulsion of body fluid through the urinary tract, thus relieving temporary water retention swiftly and without putting undue stress on the kidneys.

Glycoside Arbutin, the main active constituent in Uva-Ursi, is hydrolyzed in gastric fluid to hydroquinone. When introduced to alkaline urine, hydroquinone is mildly astringent and displays potent antimicrobial qualities in addition to its noted diuretic effects. This makes it very useful in the case of urinary tract infections, kidney infections, bladder infections and prostate inflammation. So, as you can see, with Uva-Ursi you are not only getting a safe and powerful alternative to prescription medications, you are also receiving significant health benefits and protecting yourself from succumbing to many compromising infections.

DANDELION (Taraxacum Officianale)

Dandelion is an extremely effective diuretic, which does not cause the side effects of mineral depletion, which are prevalent with the use of diuretic drugs. In addition to its diuretic properties it also offers significant health benefits. Dandelion contains bitter compounds that enhance the efficiency of the body’s eliminative and detoxifying functions. It also strengthens the liver, stimulates bile secretion and stimulates the digestive process. In fact, the use of Dandelion supplements actually assist in the removal of toxins created by the over consumption of meats, fatty fried foods, coffee and pharmaceutical medications.

As a good source of potassium, Dandelion also helps lower sodium levels and combats the imbalance of electrolytes, which often accompany the use of any diuretic. By reducing excess fluids and lowering sodium, Dandelion may also offer protection from high blood pressure.

As if all this wasn’t enough, this valuable herb is one of the best blood builders/purifiers available. Its high vitamin and mineral content (especially calcium) also assists in building stamina and endurance.

As a diuretic, Dandelion has been used with great success to treat water retention whilst providing many additional health benefits and is a valuable addition to any supplement program.

POTASSIUM (Potassium Chloride)

Potassium, in conjunction with sodium, is essential to the regulation of the body’s water balance and to nerve and muscle function. It is also of primary importance when it comes to generating the electrical charges involved in muscle contraction and nerve transmission. The maintenance of a regular heart rhythm is also dependant on the amount of potassium circulating in the body. Diuretics (prescriptive or OTT) are notorious for depleting the body of this vital mineral and the addition of potassium to this formula is evidence that we care not just about helping you loose that excess water, but also making sure that your heart is still beating inside those chiseled pecs!

Vitamin B6 (from Pyridoxine HCL)

Vitamin B6 is involved in more bodily functions than almost any other single nutrient. It affects physical and mental health, is necessary for the production of hydrochloric acid and the absorption of fats and protein. It also plays an important role in the maintenance of a healthy sodium/potassium balance. As if all this wasn’t impressive enough, vitamin B6 is also involved in the synthesis of RNA and DNA – which contain genetic instructions for the replication of all cells and normal cellular growth. It is also known as an ‘enzyme activator’, aiding in the absorption of vitamin B12, immune function and antibody production.

Recent research into various B6 derivatives have also shown promise in regard to improving insulin secretion, glycemic control and beta-cell regeneration.

B6 may also enhance the effects of certain compounds taken to preserve kidney function e.g. CoQ10, silymarin, dandelion root.

So, as you can see, AQUALYZE is not only one of the most effective diuretics available without a prescription. It is also a very valuable supplement when it comes to enhancing your overall health. All these things considered it should come as no surprise that it is available exclusively from SPECIES…THE HOME OF EVOLUTIONARY NUTRITION!

Whilst residing in the UK, she earned the reputation of being one of the top female writers in bodybuilding-related media. Her credits included being a contributing editor on all the magazines in production as well as filling the shoes of Ladies Editor and Showbiz Editor on two publications (the later being on Arnold’s sanctioned magazine, ‘Bodypower’). During this time she also competed successfully on four occasions (placing in the top four in all contests).

Relocating to New York in the late 1990s she focused her writing attention to crystal healing techniques and metaphysics – however, she still maintained a five day workout schedule during this time and gained her personal training certificate.

Having also studied pharmacology in relation to sports performance, her writing began taking her in that direction until the present day which sees her embarking on a return to the magazine world, as well as extending her web-related work in the bodybuilding and fitness field.

Leigh has been working out for close to thirty years so she is clearly a writer who ‘walks her talk.’
