What makes AZO Bladder Control a smart, drug-free choice for supporting bladder control?
A lot of good goes into AZO Bladder Control.
A main ingredient in AZO Bladder Control, pumpkin seed extract helps support and maintain bladder muscle strength.* This can help alleviate the fear, worry and potential embarrassment of occasional urgency.*
The other major ingredient, soy germ, helps to relax the bladder muscles while sustaining muscular strength in the pelvic floor - the muscles you use to control the flow.* This ingredient has been used safely and effectively in traditional medicine for centuries.

Healthy Bladder Control Tips
- Cut down on caffeine and alcoholic beverages; both can irritate the bladder.
- Avoid citrus fruits and citrus juices for the same reason.
- Limit soft drinks; carbonated beverages and artificial sweeteners can also irritate the bladder.
- Some people are helped when they cut out spicy food and tomato based dishes.
- Some people report that chocolate is an irritant, try reducing your intake. (Sorry!)
- Eat plenty of non-acidic fruits, such as blueberries, and eat dark green leafy vegetables, such as kale.
- Limit the amount of fluid you drink before bedtime, to avoid bathroom trips during the night.
- Try to maintain a healthy weight; extra body weight puts extra pressure on all of your organs, including your bladder.
- Get into a regular program of exercise, including pelvic floor (Kegel) exercises, which are designed to help improve urinary continence.
- Don’t smoke! It’s bad for everything!
- Try meditation or yoga for stress relief; research shows that emotional stress increases bladder discomfort.
