How does Pumpkin work?

The chemicals in the pumpkin seed cause an increase in urination (diuretic effect), which helps relieve bladder discomfort.

Are there safety concerns?

Pumpkin is considered safe for most people. It may cause ejaculation problems in some men.

Do not use pumpkin in amounts greater than found in food if:
  • You are pregnant or breast-feeding.
