The natural solution to Bladder control isn't out of reach...

Having an overactive bladder can take over your life...

The pressure of finding a bathroom in time, dreading long journeys, constantly needing to think about going to the loo and not knowing where the available facility is located are all too familiar with so many of us.

An overactive bladder is a condition where the bladder muscles contract involuntarily when filling with urine. The muscle contractions are often without any warning and someone with an overactive bladder cannot control these contractions. The result is an involuntary loss of urine.

So what can be done to help treat your overactive bladder?

There are some simple things you can do to help - for instance some people find it helpful to restrict the amount they drink (especially caffeine and alcohol) to control bladder contractions.

Research has now identified a group of five key herbs and two amino acids which can help to treat the symptoms of an overactive bladder and promote a healthy urinary tract.

Alpinia oxyphylla, Cornus officinalis and Schizandra chinensis are herbs which have been used for centuries in China in a variety of formulas prescribed by herbalists for treating problems with the urinary tract, which include frequent urination, urgent urination and incontinence. They have no known side effects and are safe to take with other medication.

Valerianna officinalis is a tall perennial herb, its key components rovaltrate and valeranon produce an active smooth-muscle relaxant effect on parts of the body which are vital for effective urinary function.

Passiflora incarnata is a herb rich in alkaloids and flavone glycosides. Recent studies have pointed to these flavonoids as having antispasmodic effect which helps with urine control.

L-Arginine is an amino acid sometimes found in nuts. It has been shown to be highly effective at treated bladder problems. The second important amino acid identified is Methionine a principle supplier of sulphur. This helps create ammonia-free urine which reduces bladder irritation. Recent studies show that Methionine prevents bacteria from sticking to urinary tract cells and so encourages a healthy bladder.
