Panax Ginseng - Weak Bladder Control
Overactive Bladder (OAB) can result from stretched or weak pelvic muscles,
chronic bladder infections, bladder diseases, diabetes, or obesity. Men
often feel the need to urinate frequently due to an enlarged prostate,
while women tend toward bladder infection and pelvic muscle weakening.
It is estimated that 33 million Americans, both men, and women, live with
OAB, but the real number is probably much larger because people don't ask
for help due to embarrassment. OAB is marked primarily by a sudden,
uncontrollable urge to urinate. Some will experience incontinence
frequently and out of the blue. Those with stress urinary incontinence
(SUI) experience "leaks" while sneezing, laughing or exercising.

Overactive bladder symptoms
Experiencing occasional incontinence doesn't mean you have an overactive
bladder. Urine leakage can happen for other reasons, like if you're

fighting the urge to urinate for an extended period of time.
An overactive bladder is determined by the frequency and urgency of
urination. Symptoms include:
an urgent and uncontrollable need to urinate
frequent involuntary loss of urine
(more than eight times in a 24-hour period)
waking up more than once a night to use the bathroom
Symptoms of overactive bladder can change. They may be different from
person to person, too, which can make identifying the issue difficult
without a doctor's help.
Knowing the symptoms of overactive bladder can help you find better
