The bladder system, also known formally as the urinary tract, is a system in the body the produces urine. It's comprised of the kidneys, bladder, urethra, and ureters. The kidneys are responsible for filtering water and waste out of the blood. The waste is what constitutes the urine and gets excreted through the ureters to the bladder. The kidneys products about 1 to 1/2 quarts of urine each day, depending on how much fluid a person consumes on average throughout the day. The bladder is responsible for holding the urine until it reaches close to its maximum holding capacity. When this happens, the detrusor muscles of the bladder sends the person an urge that they need to use the bathroom.
The bladder is made up of both the detrusor and its wall muscles. The wall muscles that hold the bladder in place are responsible for the contracting and relaxing of the urethra. The urethra is the tube through which the bladder is emptied out of the body. Basically put, this is where your stream of urine exits your body. The Flotrol control supplement works to strengthen these bladder muscles to help you regain control of your urination stream. In addition, this medicine works to stop an overactive detrustor muscles, which is known medically as an overactive bladder.
