You know the feeling: You need to find a bathroom, and fast. Have you been stuck in traffic, desperately needing “to go”? Do you wake up two or three times during the night just to get relief? Strength 24 can help. Many users have reported improved bladder function within 30 days, feeling back in control like they used to be.
Strength 24 increases Ca2+ATPase in the bladder muscle which:
- Supports bladder function and control in men with benign prostrate hyperplasia
- Supports bladder function in menopausal/perimenopausal women or other individuals with reduced hormone levels
Although not widely known, the bladder is composed of smooth muscle tissue. The detrusor muscle contracts when urinating to squeeze out urine. Otherwise, it remains relaxed to allow the bladder to fill. The internal sphincter muscle of urethra is the primary muscle for preventing the release of urine.
As with all muscles, muscle contraction and relaxation is controlled by calcium. Calcium is released from a cellular storage vesicle (sarcoplasmic reticulum) into the cell which then triggers muscle contraction. After the calcium is released and the contraction has occurred, the calcium then must be pumped back into the storage vesicle so that there will be adequate calcium for the next contraction. Ca2+ATPase is the pump that moves calcium out of the cell and into the storage vesicle. As we age Ca2+ATPase levels decline resulting in reduced muscle control, i.e. overactive bladder.
Ca2+ATPase levels are approximately 40% lower in bladders of men with bladder dysfunction as compared to men of similar age with normal function. In fact, the severity of the bladder dysfunction correlates with reduced Ca2+ATPase levels. In other words, the greater the symptoms, the lower the Ca2+ATPase.
In women, alterations in the female sex hormones are believed to play a major role in bladder dysfunction. There is a direct relationship between estrogen levels and blood flow to the bladder. As a result, there is increased free radical generation which leads to decreased Ca2+ATPase. Decreased Ca2+ATPase results in reduced bladder muscle function and control.
By increasing Ca2+ATPase levels to normal, Strength 24 can improve bladder function in both men and women and give them back the freedom they deserve!
