You’re afraid to go out anymore.
No movies or shows. Long car rides are out. No ballgames.
Even quick trips to the store become stressful if you have bladder control issues. And you might limit yourself to places where you KNOW there will be a bathroom within easy reach.
But there may be a way to fix the leaks. And when that happens, it’s like getting YOUR LIFE back. It’s a chance to get back out and enjoy yourself again without having to wonder if you’re going to have one of those embarrassing moments.
And one of the best ways to ease your bladder difficulties… to eliminate the urgency and restore your confidence… comes from one of the humblest sources of all.
It’s a simple seed you can get in just about ANY supermarket or big box store. Millions regularly already enjoy the seed as a snack.
The PUMPKIN SECRET to better bladder control
We might be long past pumpkin season. And all those pumpkin spice products have mercifully been cleared from the shelves and dumped into the clearance bins until September rolls around again.
But there’s one piece of the pumpkin you want to keep around all year. And that’s especially true if you suffer from those uncomfortable and embarrassing bladder leaks.
It’s not the part that goes in the pies. Instead it’s the SEEDS.
It might sound surprising at first. But pumpkin seeds have an impressive history of being used to help ease urinary complaints.
For men in particular, pumpkin seeds have been used for ages to help with the urgency they get from having an enlarged prostate.
But there’s something here for everyone. Because it turns out these delicious little seeds are tops for the ladies battling bladder problems too.
For guys and gals alike, one study found that pumpkin seed extracts could help slash bathroom dashes by up to 68 percent.
Pumpkin seeds help halt the bathroom dash
Experts say an amino acid found in the seeds, called myosin, may be behind their ability to calm a cranky bladder.
Mysoin plays a role in muscle contractions and may help your bladder muscles stay relaxed as it fills up. By slashing muscle spasms, the pumpkin seed compound could help calm those sudden urges that send you running for the restroom day and night.
Munch on about one half a cup of pumpkin seeds a day. Along with helping the bladder they are a great source of fiber, essential minerals, antioxidants, and more.
And if that’s too much pumpkin for you, don’t stress. Pumpkin seed extract is also readily available as a supplement, found both in stores and online.
