The “Big Four” Bladder Irritants

We’ve written about the Bladder Irritants before, but diet cannot be stressed enough when it comes to your bladder and bowel health. It’s true that what you eat can affect more than just your weight, energy, and mood. Food can change how your body works on the inside!

We advise you consume the follow four irritants in moderation based on acidity.

CAFFEINE

Caffeine irritates the bladder and create stronger urges. Like alcohol, our favorite caffeinated breakfast drinks like coffee and tea also act as diuretics, causing more frequent trips to the restroom.

JUICE

Although juice is inherently good because it comes from fruit, a lot of juices are mostly comprised of sugar because they’re the fruit’s sweetness without the fiber of the skin or body of the whole fruit.

If you must indulge in juices, try to do so sparingly and try to avoid versions made from concentrate and added sugars.

TOMATOES

Although tomatoes have incredible nutrients and minerals that benefit your diet, they are fairly acidic and can be irritating for individuals prone to reflux and bladders in general.

Eat sparingly.

CARBONATED DRINKS

These drinks usually have caffeine, as well as carbonation, which should both be avoided.  In addition, many of them contain artificial sweeteners, which are believed to be bladder irritants.

  1. Very informative. Years of suffering. Drinking caffeine and artificial sweeteners
    W/O any knowledge from doctors or perhaps not listening. Now I’m a big water 💧 person with my personal blender that cuts ice and keeps my water cool and fresh. This can only help meage gracefully. A big shoutout if thanks and gratitude.
