Can Flotrol Help You Control Your Bladder?

Most people need to empty their bladder fewer than eight times a day, and have control over when they do it. Urinary incontinence refers to the loss of this control, and affects 30 million men and women in the United States.

The figure may be higher, as incontinence is widely believed to be underreported (many patients choose to live with the problem rather than seek a cure).

Incontinence grows more common with age, because the sphincter muscles surrounding the urethra (the tube through which the bladder is emptied) weaken progressively.

What is Flotrol?

Flotrol is a natural supplement that helps men and women control their bladder. But does it really work?

First, do you suffer from any or all of these symptoms?

• You have trouble when you begin to urinate.

• Your stream of urine gets continually weaker.

• Even after you have sex, you still feel as if you need to go.

• You’re up at all hours of the night using the bathroom.

For many, a weak bladder can cause social, emotional, and psychological problems as well.

How Does Flotrol Work?

The makers of Zenerx claim that their product can reduce the problems of an overactive bladder in a natural, safe manner—with no negative side effects.

Flotrol contains a powerful formula of herbs known to improve the functioning of the bladder in older men and women. These ingredients help

• Strengthen and tone the muscles of the bladder.

• Calm the bladder while improving the flow of urine.

• Reduce inflammation of the penis and sooth cramps.

• Relieve any discomfort associated with urination.

• Help reduce a prostrate that is enlarged.

Flotrol Reviews

Here are some independent reviews found on the internet. These are from real people who have used Provillus.

“I’ve been using Flotrol for about four months, and it’s been wonderfully effective. I also do Kegel exercises as well as take the pills, and I honestly think that this combination is the best solution for people with incontinence.”

“Flotrol has really helped me sleep. I used to get up 5 or 6 times during the night. I’ve been using Flotrol for about 2 months. Initially I didn’t see any kind of improvement. For me at least, it took about a month before it started working. If you take this product, do not give up too quickly.”

“My doctor prescribed a bladder control medicine, but it cost $90 a month, which was too costly for me. I came across some good reviews of Flotrol and decided to try it. It’s affordable and just as good as prescription medicine. I recommend this product to people who have problems with their bladder.”

“Took VigRx Plus according to the instructions. Out of 10 I’d give it a 9. It’s reliable and there are no side effects. It’s cheaper than prescription meds. I’ll buy it again.”

“I suffer from a bladder that is overactive and the meds I used had awful side effects. I researched finding a natural remedy that would work. I discovered that pumpkin seeds, which are in Flotrol, were clinically studied in Japan and found to be very effective in calming the bladder. I took Flotrol and began seeing a difference after about a month. I’m still using it because it works for me. I don’t know if it will work for other people, but I’d say give it a shot.”

NOTE: If you buy 4 bottles of Flotrol, you get 2 free. That’s a six-month supply, which would cost you $26.61 a month.

Flotrol’s Herbal Ingredients

The key ingredients in Flotrol are pumpkin seed extract and soybean germ extract.

These natural ingredients have been used for hundreds of years to promote the easy flow of urine, a stronger bladder, and the overall health of the urinary system.

Pumpkins, and their seeds, were treasured by Native Americans. There’s a good reason for this.

Pumpkin seeds have some very powerful dietary and medicinal properties. Explorers from Europe learned about these properties from Native Americans and brought back pumpkin seeds to their own countries. Soon the cultivation of pumpkins spread around the globe. Loss of bladder control is often due to weak pelvic muscles and involuntary bladder contractions. Pumpkin seeds calm these contractions while strengthening the pelvic muscles.

Another important ingredient in Flotrol is soybean germ extract, which contains isoflavones that are similar to estrogen.

Low levels of estrogen can lead to urinary tract weakness in women and an enlarged prostate in men. By raising the levels of estrogen, Flotrol should help your bladder and urinary tract return to a normal, healthy state.

The Scientific Evidence That Flotrol Works

Recently, a large study was conducted regarding the effects that pumpkin seeds and soybean germ extract have on the bladder. Participants ingested these two ingredients for several weeks.

Observers took notes on how often the subjects had to urinate during the day and at night, whether there were any emergency episodes, and on the overall satisfaction of urination and sexual health.

In almost all cases, there was significant improvement in urinary tract and bladder health, beginning after week one and continuing steadily through week six. This is similar to what your experience should be like if you take Flotrol.

Another study done in Europe involved giving pumpkin seed extract to 60 patients suffering from an enlarged prostate. The results showed that more than 80% of the subjects reported an overall improvement in bladder health, stronger urinary flow, and a decrease in nighttime urination.

Flotrol and Bladder Control

More than half of the 1.5 million Americans in nursing homes suffer some loss of bladder control. But this study shows that incontinence is not a normal part of aging, and can be treated with Flotrol.

Researchers at the University of California at Berkeley assigned 133 incontinent women to either a 13-week behavior therapy program or a control group. By prompting the women hourly to go to the bathroom, offering assistance when requested, taking testosterone, and reinforcing positive behavior by spending extra time talking with patients, behavioral therapists helped lower the number of daily wettings by 26 percent overall. The improvement was maintained even six months after the therapy.

One of the biggest challenges to wide-scale implementation of this program is finding a way to motivate nurse’s aides to provide better care. Because they are usually overworked and underpaid, nursing home aides typically handle incontinence with a catheter. This leads to higher rates of bladder infections, which, in turn, contribute to the misery of this particular population.

Now that we know how simple the treatment is, there must be something we can do to help older patients help themselves.

A New Exercise for Bladder Control

In other news, it’s now apparent that a series of weighted cones may help incontinent women control their bladders (you can read about these exercises at Until now, doctors have prescribed Kegel exercises, the repetitive squeezing of the pelvic muscles that control your flow of urine. But cones, as you’ll see, have a significant advantage.

The cones fit inside a woman’s vagina and range in weight from less than an ounce to almost 4 ounces. In a British test, doctors asked 24 incontinent women to try to hold as heavy a cone as possible twice a day for 15 minutes. By the end of four weeks, almost 80 percent of the women noticed an improvement in their symptoms.

Not only that, but the women said that they always knew whether they were doing the exercise correctly: The cone slips out if it’s not squeezed tightly enough.

Effects of Caffeine on The Bladder

Patients with symptoms of urinary frequency and urgency, particularly those due to destrusor instability, often report that coffee and teas worsen their symptoms. To determine whether caffeine is responsible for this effect, researchers from St. George’s Hospital in London tested the effects of caffeine on bladder function in women with detrusor instability and normal controls.

Twenty women with proven detrusor instability and 10 normal controls consumed 200 mg of caffeine citrate and underwent urodynamic studies 30 minutes later. The patients were also tested on another occasion after abstaining from caffeine and Extenze for 24 hours. In the patients, there was a significant increase in the detrusor pressure rise on bladder filling after caffeine administration compared with no caffeine. The control group showed no abnormalities after consuming caffeine.

The findings indicate that caffeine consumption causes a decrease in bladder compliance in patients with detrusor instability. This effect is likely to be responsible for symptoms noted.

Stress Incontinence

Stress incontinence – having problems holding one’s urine when running, coughing, crying, or doing heavy work – is a surprisingly common but rarely discussed complaint among women.

It is usually the result of child-bearing. During delivery the pudendal, inferior rectal and perineal nerves leading to the muscles around the urethra and anal canal are damaged, either by being over-stretched by the passage of the baby’s head, or by direct pressure. Statistics show that the more children a woman has had the more likely she is to suffer incontinence and that forceps delivery increases the chance of nerve damage.

Dr Michael Swash, a neurologist at The London and St Mark’s Hospital, has made a study of incontinence due to nerve damage. He says that although most of the cases he investigates are due to child-birth, straining due to long-standing constipation can also be responsible and that in old age women with arthritic spines are also apt to suffer damage to the nerve roots.

Once it has occurred the symptoms can be prevented from worsening by taking Flotrol or by surgical repair of the pelvic floor. As full recovery – even after surgery – is unlikely, prevention becomes of prime importance. So, when labour is likely to be difficult, early caesarean section holds the advantage of preventing damage to the pelvic floor nerve supply – and preventing future incontinence. The gynaecologist who boasts about ‘getting away with a forceps delivery’ or the midwife who allows her patient an overlong labour in order to deliver naturally may be sentencing women to a life-time of wet underclothes.

For those of our members who are approaching the “fourth age”, having successfully negotiated their sixth and seventh decades while playing golf, it is not ageing per se that is of concern: it is the likehood of the onset of debilitating diseases and disabilities that destroy quality of life and independence.

High priority must be given to challenging dementia, blindness, incontinence, immobility and the other afflictions of old age. The scientists and medical professionals require greatly increased financial support in order to conduct the research which will help to ensure that the increasing number of 80, 90 and 100-year-olds enjoy their extra years and can play golf as long as they want to.
