Product Information Menu
Aging individuals frequently encounter a weakening of the bladder and its sphincter muscle that controls the release of urine.
Laboratory and human clinical studies demonstrate that ingestion of water-soluble pumpkin seed extract can significantly improve the structural support of the bladder and the function of the sphincter muscle.58-62
The data supporting the value of water-soluble pumpkin seed extract is particularly strong in studies performed in women. A clinical study of aging men also demonstrated positive results.62
The pumpkin seed has a long history of use in helping to maintain healthy bladder function. Japanese scientists have patented a method to obtain the water-soluble constituents of the pumpkin seed, which are absorbed far more efficiently into the bloodstream. These water-soluble pumpkin seed extracts appear to be the active constituents that help with the urinary discomforts endured by so many maturing women and men.
Clinical studies on women and men have used capsules containing 262 mg of water-soluble pumpkin seed extract and 50 mg of soy isoflavones taken two times each day. The results from human studies show the maximum benefits occurring after six to eight weeks of continued use.60-62
For those who are taking other soy supplements or are allergic to soy, this version of Water-Soluble Pumpkin Seed Extract does not contain soy isoflavones.

Tried this item to help with urinary urgency. Unfortunately, it did not help at all. Again, LE needs to begin paying far more attention to reducing the size of every supplement they sell,...Read complete review

Comments about Life Extension Water-Soluble Pumpkin Seed Extract, 60 vegetarian capsules:
This is a great product. I am 66 years old and as far as I am concerned it is a miracle. In the 10 years that I have been using Pumpkin Seed Extract I have occasionally forgotten to reorder before running out. It only takes a few days for me to regret my procrastination. Fortunately, LEF delivers quickly. I take two capsules a day as directed on the bottle. Incontinence problems are so common in women my age. I highly recommend it to anyone. Too bad LEF does not promote it more.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Health Conscious
It takes 2-3 month for best result, but feels better after 2-3 weeks.
I would buy this product again!
This product has been helpful for male issues! I take it once a day and prefer the soy-free version.
This is a very useful product
This is a very good product for men with prostate issues. I think it is best used in combination with other prostate supportive products and is more for long-term than as a quick fix.

I will keep buying this product
It is great because it does what it says it will and I am very happy that I have found something natural I can take instead of taking a drug that can have side effects and that I need a prescription for.
Performs as expected

My husband uses the pumpkin seed product in conjunction with Ultra Prostate and has had excellent results. He initailly stared using just the Ultra Prostate and then added the pumpkin seed supplement a month later. The combination of the two products was exactly what he needed to get the desired results. We were skeptical at fist that these supplements would not work, but after a few weeks of use, he would not go without them.
Wouldn't be without it

It not only strengthens sphincter muscle but all muscles below the waist. My husband said the same, and he didn't even know I was putting it in his supplement box. I wouldn't be without it. Only drawback is you have to keep taking 3 a day or it quits working.
