Life Extension Water-Soluble Pumpkin Seed Extract for weak and ageing bladders, supports healthy bladder function. As we age, we frequently encounter a weakening of the bladder and its sphincter muscle that controls the release of urine. Studies demonstrate that ingestion of water-soluble pumpkin seed extract can significantly improve both of them.
The pumpkin seed has a long history of use for 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 help with the urinary discomforts, endured by so many maturing women and men. The results from human studies show the maximum benefits occurring after six to eight weeks of continued use.
Those taking other soy supplements or are allergic to soy, need not worry. This version of Water-Soluble Pumpkin Seed Extract does not contain soy isoflavones.
