Natural Bladder Control, Go Less and Live More

Natural Bladder Control, Go Less and Live More
The days of over-active bladder and incontinence for men and women of all ages have come to an end.

A powerful new supplement called Strength24 stops the frequent urges "to go". For some, this means no more adult diapers. For others, it means a full night's sleep without the need to wake and rush to the washroom. It also means a lot less stress and no more travel where the most important landmark is the nearest toilet.

Now, it wasn't developed specifically for this purpose. It started with years of research into the causes of muscle fatigue and a wide variety of other ailments. The result, however, is a supplement that supports a strong bladder, muscle function, brain health and vibrant living.

It All Started with a Mother's Love


Brunde Broady's young son suffered from a variety of chronic health conditions. Some of these included muscle weakness, asthma and swallowing problems. Conventional treatments failed to treat him. In many cases, they couldn't even identify the source of his problems.

After mainstream medicine failed her, she began her own research. In her quest, she uncovered that many of these conditions shared a common factor. The cells of individuals with these conditions had low levels of one specific enzyme.

The Bone Mineral that Regulates the Bladder


You know calcium supports bone health. But that's not all it does. It has another even more critical job.

The human body uses calcium ions (written as Ca2+) to tell every cell what to do next. It's called a signaling molecule. These types of molecules dictate every activity in the cell. They do everything from telling cells when to divide and create new cells to producing essential nutrients to undergoing apoptosis, or cell death.

Calcium ions have a special role in muscle tissue. They help regulate muscle contraction and relaxation. Here's how that works…

When a muscle needs to contract (flex), calcium ions get pumped from a little storage area, or organelle, inside a muscle cell. The organelle is called SERCA (short for sarco-endoplasmic reticulum Ca2+). When it's time to relax, those calcium ions get pumped back into the SERCA.

This process goes for all three types of muscle tissue: skeletal muscle, cardiac muscle and smooth muscle. Skeletal muscles are those that allow you to move, the ones that ache after exercise or effort. Cardiac muscle refers to your heart. Smooth muscle includes the lungs and airways, the intestines and the bladder.

If levels of these calcium ions become unbalanced, cells go haywire. Think of it like what happens when too many programs are open on a computer. It tries to do too much. There aren't enough resources. The computer crashes.

This requires the body to strictly regulate the flow of calcium ions within all cells. A cell without enough calcium may not follow a normal cell lifecycle. A cell with too much will get to excited and die. A muscle cell won't contract and relax as it should.

To control calcium ion levels, the body uses pumps. They're enzymes called Ca2+ATPase. In muscle cells these enzymes resides in the SERCA membrane. In other cells these enzymes can be found in a cell's plasma membrane, the outer wall of a cell.

When the pump works right, calcium flows smoothly as needed and triggers the necessary cellular activity. In muscle cells, it flows out of the SERCA causing a muscle cell to contract. When it's time to relax, the pump reverses and the calcium ions get pumped back until they're needed again.

Problems start when the pump doesn't work right, if there aren't enough pumps, or if the membrane, the wall that keeps the calcium ions "in", is weak and allows calcium ions to escape. When this happens, muscle and organs like the bladder don't work right. Unfortunately today, many factors can create this situation.

Why Bladder and Muscle Problems Can Affect Anyone at Any Age


The human body naturally produces fewer enzymes as it ages. This includes Ca2+ATPase. That explains why for the longest time over-active bladder and incontinence was a condition of "old age."

Today though, new factors can impact an individual's Ca2+ATPase levels. Environmental toxins play a big part. Heavy metals like lead, cadmium, mercury and fluoride disrupt enzyme production. They also alter the structure of cell membranes and interfere with the normal flow into and out of a cell.

Pesticides, PCBs, aluminum and electromagnetic fields can also affect the body's levels of this enzyme.  Plus, many ingredients in pre-packaged, processed foods contain chemicals that reduce the presence of Ca2+ATPase. These include preservatives like BHT, food dyes, artificial flavoring, BPA and BPS.

While some of these can be avoided, others may be more difficult to escape. Combine them and they can create problems for anyone at any age like Mrs. Broady's young son. They can also increase the likelihood of problems like bladder dysfunction.

Researchers have found a direct link between bladder control and the amount of the enzymes that pump calcium ions into and out of a cell.   Additional studies confirm calcium flow correlates to the strength and function of the bladder muscle as unstable levels of cellular calcium directly relates to bladder muscle dysfunction.

Fortunately, nature has a solution.

The Power Behind Strength24


For centuries, people around the world have used supplemental nutrition to offset the effects of aging. Often these come from plants and herbs. Strength24 uses one very special plant to help the body restore the enzyme it needs to pump and regulate calcium ions.

The oil of the beautiful and aromatic jasmine flower possesses extraordinary properties. It contains compounds called jasmonates. Researchers today continue to investigate new ways to use them, but studies confirm jasmonates increase the presence and effectiveness of the calcium transport enzyme. ,   One study found these compounds also helped speed the movement of calcium ions into and out of cells.  

Strength24 features these jasmonates. Of course, if all this activity takes place at the cellular level, how do you really know it's working?

Well, when it comes to the bladder, you go less. You don't need diapers. You sleep better so you feel better. Plus, with fewer trips to the bathroom, you can get out and live more.

Additional Conditions Linked to this Vital Enzyme


It turns out the bladder may be only one condition impacted by the calcium ions that act as a trigger. A cell "knows" the activity it should perform based on coordination of these ions with other molecules. As a result, a broken calcium pump and disruption of the Ca2+ATPase enzyme may be linked to other conditions.

Chronic joint and muscle pain, for example, might be triggered by this situation. Researchers have observed patients with conditions like these have cellular enzyme imbalances and believe restoring the balance may ease the aches and pains of the condition.

The enzyme may also be related to sleep disturbances. A proper flow of calcium ions in brain cells helps to regulate the building and breaking-down of melatonin, the substance your body uses to induce sleep. Studies show that without enough melatonin, sleep disorders occur.  Other factors play a role in melatonin formation but the calcium ion flow plays a central role as it directs the process directly related to sleep and sleep quality.

As important as melatonin is to sleep, it may play a greater role in the brain. Researchers at the University of Houston found melatonin helped to slow brain degeneration in some patients.  Another study showed it decreased the chance of cell death caused by proteins associated with some degenerative disorders.  A lot more research may be needed to confirm the impact of calcium balance on brain health, but so far the results produced have been positive.

Breathing and respiratory conditions rely on calcium balance too. The smooth muscle tissue of the lungs and trachea require contraction and relaxation like skeletal muscle and the bladder. One study noted patients with asthma had higher cellular calcium levels than individuals who had no breathing disorder.  Other studies specifically report patients with breathing disorders do have lower levels of the enzyme Ca2+ATPase. Restoring enzyme levels may address the problem.

All of these conditions share a common link in the form of a disruption of normal cellular function. Beyond these, research continues into other conditions where cells don't go through a normal life-cycle. At the center of cell behavior lies the flow of calcium ions by the enzyme "pump" through cellular membranes. Researchers continue to find that problems in any of these areas leads to serious health conditions.

Ingredients Added for Maximum Effect


While the jasmonates encourage calcium flow by supporting the calcium pumps, the pumps themselves need a healthy membrane to work right. Free radicals created by environmental and food toxins mentioned earlier alter the protein structure and passage of nutrients and minerals through cell membranes.

To encourage the biggest effect, Strength24 includes a few additional ingredients known to restore membrane health and function. These include:
 
L-arginine -  This essential amino acid plays a vital role in many of the body's functions. It's also a vital component of cell membranes. Researchers also note it promotes proper activity of transport enzymes like Ca2+ATPase.  

Taurine -  Another key amino acid, it supports cellular calcium balance. One study found it helps protect against excitotoxicity, or overstimulation of the cell due to excess calcium.
 
Citrulline - This amino acid has captured a lot of attention recently. It is a precursor of L-arginine and helps to increase levels of that amino acid. The reason for the attention comes from the fact it survives digestion better and is more bioavailable than L-arginine.

Who Sees the Greatest Benefits of Strength24:


Individuals who suffer from chronic conditions like over-active bladder, incontinence and muscle fatigue with its aches and pains experience the greatest benefit from Strength24. It may also improve sleep, support additional mental health in aging and help reduce inflammation.

As the human body naturally produces fewer enzymes and hormones as it ages, it may offer substantial benefits to adults as they age, especially the elderly. As the supplement itself was created for a child, it may prove effective for individuals of any age in need of increased Ca2+ATPase levels.

How to Use Strength 24:


Whether for you, for a patient or for someone you love, taking it is simple. Take a dropper full twice daily. Each dropper equals one ml making it a 2 ml daily dose.

Precautions:  

Although Strength24 provides nutrients recognized by the human body, pregnant women and anyone taking doctor prescribed medications should always consult with their healthcare provider before taking a supplement.

Contraindications:  

Oral consumption of supplements with methyl jasmonate are not known to have produced side effects with any conditions. As always, take appropriate precautions and check with your doctor if you have any questions.

Summary:

Bladder control and muscle function rely on a balance in cells of essential calcium ions used for cell signaling. Many factors can disrupt a normal flow and levels of calcium including age, environmental and food toxins. The results of this calcium imbalance have been linked to a wide range of diseases from over-active bladder and incontinence to brain health and asthma. Strength24 provides support at the cellular level to support a strong healthy bladder, proper muscle function and vibrant living.
