6 Foods That Can Irritate The Bladder, From A Urogynecologist
Greenleaf does emphasize, however, that if you aren’t having any bladder issues, these foods are completely fine to enjoy: “I’m not going to tell people [to never] eat those things, because if you don’t have a problem with your bladder, there’s a lot of health benefits in those foods,” she says.
But if you are looking to strengthen the muscle, you might want to limit them and see how you feel. “Unfortunately, a great Italian dinner with tomato sauce and wine is probably one of the worst [meals] if you already have bladder problems,” Greenleaf adds. Perhaps focus on other pelvic floor-supporting foods instead.
