Aging individuals frequently encounter a weakening of the bladder and its sphincter muscle that controls the release of urine.
Laboratory and human clinical studies demonstrate that ingestion of water-soluble pumpkin seed extract can significantly improve the structural support of the bladder and the function of the sphincter muscle.
The data supporting the value of water-soluble pumpkin seed extract is particularly strong in studies performed in women. A clinical study of aging menalso demonstrated positive results.
The pumpkin seed has a long history of use in helping to maintain healthy bladder function. Japanese scientists have patented a method to obtain the water-soluble constituents of the pumpkin seed, which are absorbed far more efficiently into the bloodstream. These water-soluble pumpkin seed extracts appear to be the active constituents that help with the urinary discomforts endured by so many maturing women and men.
Clinical studies on women and men have used capsules containing 262 mg of water-soluble pumpkin seed extract and 50 mg of soy isoflavones taken two times each day. The results from human studies show the maximum benefits occurring after six to eight weeks of continued use.
For those who are taking other soy supplements or are allergic to soy, this version of Water-Soluble Pumpkin Seed Extract does not contain soy isoflavones.
