Are you in the market for an incontinence supplement? Well, there’s really only one way to go: healthy food. Incontinence is caused by a weakening of the pelvic floor muscles. That just means they need to be strengthened. Who better to know about strengthening muscles than body builders?
Bodybuilders take all kinds of supplements for energy, recovery and muscle growth. They take steroids (legal and illegal) and all kinds of Asian herbs and nutrients. But in reality it’s the protein, carbs and exercise that grows the muscles. The rest just help to make sure they can work out every day for maximum growth. And they do – daily.
I did come across a “bladder control” incontinence supplement today that had all kinds of stuff in it, like: Asian ginseng root, Chinese yam rhizome, Chinese peony root, Deer antler velvet, Astragalus root, Poria sclerotium, and about 20 other things. But if you take this and expect your pelvic floor muscles are going to fix themselves – you’ll be waiting a long time.
Muscles need exercise. Your pelvic floor muscles, for example, are contracted all the time. They get tired, weak and leak. It’s natural. And doing kegel exercises is what helps them – not an incontinence supplement.
So don’t waste your money on that unless your doctor tells you to. Instead get your kegel exercises in gear and fix yourself today.
