Magnesium for Urge and Overflow Incontinence
The detrusor muscle is a smooth muscle found in the wall of the bladder. It can become overactive, contracting when you don't want it to, causing urge and overflow incontinence. Magnesium reduces this excessive nerve stimulation, helping to relax the muscle. A double-blind trial found that women who took 350 mg of magnesium hydroxide (providing 147 mg elemental magnesium) twice daily for four weeks, had improved bladder control and fewer symptoms associated with urge and overflow incontinence.
Magnesium is essential in maintaining a normal blood pressure and strong bones, along with supporting healthy digestion and avoiding constipation.
Beta Carotene (Converted into Vitamin A) for Recurring Urinary Tract Infections
Beta Carotene is stored in the liver until needed by the body, at which time it is converted into the more widely known vitamin A. Taking Beta Carotene rather than vitamin A directly is recommended as it avoids having an excess of vitamin A in the body which can cause damage to the bones.
Vitamin A enhances the immune response against reoccurring urinary tract infections, reducing the frequency of them occurring. Vitamin A also reduces the symptoms of urge and overflow incontinence.
Other benefits of taking beta carotene supplements include hair and nail growth, and more recently it is used to enhance natural tanning.
Vitamin D for a Strong Pelvic Floor and to Treat an Overactive Bladder
Vitamin D is essential in maintaining your musculoskeletal health. This includes keeping your pelvic floor healthy and strong. If you are deficient in vitamin D, you will likely experience symptoms of severe urinary incontinence as your pelvic floor muscles are unable to sufficiently support your bladder. Keeping a healthy pelvic floor is essential in preventing other pelvic floor disorders such as pelvic organ prolapses and faecal incontinence.
Vitamin C for Urge and Overflow Incontinence and to Treat Recurring Urinary Tract Infections
Vitamin C supplements have been proved to reduce the prevalence of urge and overflow incontinence. Especially beneficial in young women, vitamin C can treat recurring urinary tract infections.
Collagen for Stress Incontinence and Overactive Bladder
As you naturally lose collagen as you age, you may be mostly concerned about the fine lines and wrinkles appearing on your face. But evidence shows that the loss of collagen in your pelvic area can result in an overactive bladder and the symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
Therefore, for many years collagen has been used as treatment for urinary incontinence, implanted in packs around the urethra during a surgical operation or via injections. This increase in collagen to the tissue around the urethra tightens the urethral sphincter preventing urine from leaking. Collagen supplements can now be taken as a non-surgical treatment, with similar results.
Power Dophilus for a Boosted Immune System, Protection of the Intestine and Treatment of Conditions Such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Diarrhoea
Although not a well-known supplement, Power Dophilus falls into the more widely known category of probiotics which promote the growth of ‘good’ gut bacteria including:
- Lactobacillus Acidophilus – Used to treat diarrhoea and improve the symptoms associated with IBS. It also promotes weight loss, reduces cholesterol and boosts the immune system against cold and flu symptoms.
- Bifidobacterium Bifidum – Used to treat IBS, constipation, diarrhoea and ulcerative colitis.
- Lactobacillus Helveticus – Prevent intestinal infections.
- Streptococcus Thermophilus – Boost immune system and protects intestinal tissue.
