What is a Diuretic? A diuretic is a medication or chemical that promotes the elimination of fluid in the body. This can lead to an accelerated metabolism that seems to flush out the fatty deposits that may lodge themselves on cells. Diuretics break down fatty deposits into small chunks and makes it easier for your body to flush these nasty little things out of your body.
