Description

Benefits of Water Soluble Pumpkin Seed Extract

  • Helps to support a healthy bladder.
  • May help to reduce urinary incontinence episodes by up to 79%.
  • Has been indicated in strengthening the pelvic floor muscles.
  • German health regulators approve pumpkin seed as a treatment for irritable bladder.
  • Does NOT contain soy.

Many individuals suffer from incontinence and the reduction in bladder strength as they get older. The majority of individuals are women that are post-menopausal, but men can lose bladder strength as well. Urinary frequency becomes more frequent and many are unable to get a good nights sleep, due to having to get up several times throughout the night. The increase in bathroom visits may make a person feel socially embarrassed, afraid of traveling, nervous, and stressed, resulting in depression or a drastic reduction in fluid intake in order to gain some sense of bladder control.1

A breakthrough discovery by Japanese scientists have uncovered a natural plant extract combination that has been shown to reduce incontinence symptoms up to 79%, daytime urination by up to 39%, and nighttime urination by up to 68%. There is strong data that supports the use of pumpkin seed extract as beneficial in both men and women.1
