Overactive bladder affects millions
Every 1 in 6 aging adults is affected by an overactive bladder or urinary incontinence, affecting their quality of life and confidence. While pumpkin seed has a centuries-old legacy as a natural remedy for urinary problems, BladderGuard is the first clinically proven formulation to target both the symptoms and the causes of incontinence and overactive bladder.*
What is overactive bladder?
Overactive bladder is actually a form of urinary incontinence. Symptoms of overactive bladder include an urgent feeling to urinate, increased frequency of urinating during the day and night and incontinence. Urinary incontinence is the accidental leakage of urine. This often occurs when individuals cough, laugh, sneeze, or have sudden urges to go to the bathroom and can't get there in time. Typically, urinary incontinence does not cause major health problems, but it can be embarrassing and affect self-esteem and quality of life. There are different kinds of incontinence.
• Stress incontinence is urine loss during physical activity that increases abdominal pressure, such as sneezing, coughing, laughing, etc.
• Urge incontinence or overactive bladder is an urgent need to urinate that is so strong that individuals often cannot make it to the toilet in time. Also called overactive bladder, urge incontinence occurs when your bladder contracts when it shouldn't. This can happen even when there is only a small amount of urine in the bladder.
• Overflow incontinence is leakage that occurs when the bladder fails to empty properly, due to a blockage or weak bladder muscle contractions. Obstruction is usually related to either enlargement of the prostate or narrowing of the urethra from scar tissue.
