Aging individuals frequently encounter a weakening of the bladder and its sphincter muscle that controls the release of urine.Laboratory and human clinical studies demonstrate that ingestion of water-soluble pumpkin seed extract (with soy isoflavones) can significantly improve the structural support of the bladder and the function of the sphincter muscle.
The data supporting the value of water-soluble pumpkin seed extract (with soy isoflavones) is particularly strong in studies performed in women. A clinical study of aging men also demonstrated positive results.54
The pumpkin seed has a long history of use in helping to maintain 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 be the active constituents to help with the urinary discomforts endured by so many maturing women and men.
