2. Leafy Green Veggies

Most vegetables are good for everyone, but some are even better for kidney function and digestion. Leafy green plants like spinach, chard, mustard greens, and kale support the healthy growth of epithelial tissue, which lines the kidneys and urinary tract.

But perhaps even more important for OAB sufferers, these greens are full of insoluble fiber, and that can make a big difference when it comes to bladder comfort: when you’re constipated, full intestines can begin to put a good deal of pressure on the bladder, and that will surely exacerbate OAB symptoms. Upping your intake of insoluble fiber can have a laxative effect, which moves everything quickly and easily through your digestive tract.
