Edema Reduction.

What can be done to minimize edema caused by certain AS?

I’m thinking caffeine, ephedrine, saunas/hot temperatures, cardio, sodium monitoring.

what other methods/supplements/drugs cut edema and dry you out?

If you’re prone to edema it might be good idea to minimize the use of AAS that cause a lot of water retention. You can still get good results but without the wonderful “moonface” :wink:

I would be careful with diuretics, even mild dehydration lower your athletic performance quite a bit.

Bro, try increasing h20 intake, eating clean foods, and supplementing with dandelion root…This is of course in addition to an anti-e or an ai.
