Petasins suppress the synthesis of leukotriene in leukocytes. This helps to reduce effects of rhinitis, an allergic disorder, which is linked with histamine levels in nasal fluids and leukotriene.

Urovex Butterbur Extract Supports Bladder Function
The product helps to provide a healthy function of bladder. This product has scientifically modified Butterbur extract without any toxins. You may use this product in case of urinary incontinence and unusual urinary frequency. People may think that the size of the bladder has an effect on urinary incontinence. However, decrease in the size of bladder is not the cause of urinary incontinence.

Detrusor, a smooth muscle layer around the bladder, is the cause of urination. This muscle expands depending on the urine volume in bladder and contracts, while urinating. Brain sends a message to Detrusor to contract, when the bladder is half-full. However, cortex helps to suppress the contraction of Detrusor at awkward times. In urinary incontinence, cortex finds it difficult to suppress the contraction of Detrusor, which expels urine out of the body. In other words, you may find your pants wet at such moments. Petasins in Butterbur extract helps in controlling the involuntary contracting of muscles due to its spasmolytic properties. Petasins are mainly responsible to suppress the synthesis of leukotriene and increases the extracellular concentration of calcium.
