Why does the risk of bladder inflammation increase in the warmer months?
With the arrival of warmer weather, we all could hardly wait to put away our winter coats, sweaters, jackets, boots and to jump into lighter clothes. However, in warmer weather we often walk around the house barefoot, wear lighter clothes, more open shoes, or sandals, we are more inclined to sit outdoors – on still cold benches, which often leads to hypothermia of the legs and lower abdomen, or weakening of blood supply to the pelvic organs and thus the bladder.
These transitional periods are precisely the most stressful ones for the entire body because very often there is a drop in immunity, which can negatively affect the bladder that is extremely sensitive, anyway.
The summer months, which we all eagerly await, usually cause problems with urinary tract, with wet bathing suits being the most common cause of urinary tract infections and bare feet on colder or windy evenings.
In the warmer months, close attention should be paid to the health of the urinary tract in children as well, especially in girls. From an early age, they should be taught about how to wipe their genitals properly and about the importance of regular emptying of the bladder to avoid the possibility of frequent inflammation. It is also very important to change diapers often, not to leave a child in wet bathing suits for a long time and to dress them warmly in the colder evening hours.
Prevention is important!
For urinary tract health, prevention is very important. Therefore, below are some tips on how to avoid problems therewith:
- Wear cotton underwear
- Learn how to properly wipe the urogenital area from the front to the back part as this can reduce greatly the possibility of E. coli transferring from the rectal area to the urethra
- Empty your bladder often
- Consume large amounts of water
- Replace having a bath with having a shower
However, if you notice the first symptoms in the form of frequent, painful, and difficult urination with a burning or stinging sensation, uncomfortable feeling of incomplete bladder emptying, or frequent urge to urinate with a low urine volume, start treatment immediately so that the condition does not become complicated.
Yasenka URO BALANCE – your immediate relief
It is necessary to react to the first symptoms in order to stop the inflammation on time.
For instant relief, we recommend URO BALANCE from Yasenka, a liquid food supplement (250 ml), which contains an innovative combination of cranberry extract, D-mannose, common knotgrass, and vitamin C.
American cranberry is the most famous plant that is traditionally used when it comes to problems related to urinary tract infection.
D-mannose acts in a simple way by firmly binding to surface sprouts of bacteria E. coli. Binding affinity of E. coli to D-mannose is higher than affinity of binding to the cells of the bladder. Bacteria bound to D-mannose is excreted from the body by urination.
Common knotgrass is an annual herbaceous plant from the knotweed family (Polygonaceae) that contains 1% of silicic acid, 1% of flavonoids and mucous polysaccharides that are traditionally used as a diuretic (stimulate fluid excretion).
Vitamin C contributes to the normal function of the immune system.
Uro Balance is available in pharmacies and specialised stores.
