New Natural Help for Urinary Problems

June 15, 2010


Whether you are a man or a woman, if you are having difficulty urinating or making seemingly endless visits to the bathroom every night then you know all about the inconvenience and embarrassment associated with this condition. Whether the problems are the result of incontinence, or frequent urination due to an enlarged prostate you might want to consider a new supplement called Pumpkin Seed Extract.

Research confirms that pumpkin seeds promote healthy urine flow, help reduce the frequency of toilet visits, strengthens weak bladder muscles that usually lead to incontinence, and, when used long-term, aid those suffering from Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia.

The use of pumpkin seeds as a natural diuretic aid is not new, but for something so small they are packed with beneficial elements. They contains high levels of amino acids, beta carotene, vitamin E, magnesium, calcium, zinc, potassium, copper, and manganese and are also rich in Omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids, and phytosterols.

The key to their usefulness for urinary problems though is the fact that pumpkin seeds also contain curbicin, a substance structurally similar to testosterone, and oestrogen, which research shows helps strengthen bladder muscles, promote healthy urine flow, and reduce nocturia, regular night-time urination.

If you want to try it then this new supplement comes from Lifeplan and contains 30mg of pumpkin seed extract, equivalent to 300mg of fresh pumpkin seeds, and the recommended dose is to take one tablet twice daily, to either help maintain a healthy urinary system or to help rectify an existing urinary problem.

You should be able to find it in your local health store but if n do not go online to or call 01455 556281 for your nearest stockist.
