Common urinary and bladder health issues affect at least 10 million people in the United States. Women are especially prone, and half of all women will experience urinary issues at some point in their life. Urinary issues tend to be more prevalent among adults 60 years of age or older, affecting more than 15 percent of older adults who live at home, and up to 60 percent of people living in nursing homes.
Incidence of urinary and bladder issues tends to increase with age for a variety of reasons, including: the normal reduction in the capacity of the bladder, leading to greater frequency of urination; normal weakening of urinary sphincter muscles; and normal decrease in bladder muscle tone. In men, the prostate often enlarges with age. Certain drugs, especially those prescribed for high blood pressure or edema (swelling), can act as powerful diuretics and contribute to bladder issues.
And while pharmaceutical companies have developed a number of drugs to help urinary tract health, none is completely effective, and worrisome side effects are often a concern. Take, for example, the class of drugs called anticholinergics. Common side effects can include dry mouth, dry eyes, headache, constipation, rapid heart rate, glaucoma, muscle weakness, dizziness, drowsiness, and restlessness.
FloControl is a new, advanced herbal formula designed to support urinary tract health and maintain control over bladder functions. FloControl is a proprietary blend of traditional Chinese herbs that have long been known to promote urinary function, including the following:
Cordyceps (Cordyceps Sinensis)
Popular in traditional Chinese healing, Cordyceps is generally used in support of general body health. Cordyceps may be best-known for its antioxidant punch. (1) Cordyceps sinensis is well-known and valued in China, where it is referred to as Dong Chong Xia Cao (winter worm summer grass).
Cured Rehmannia (Radix Rehmanniae Glutinosae Conquitae)
Rehmannia glutinosa, a widely used Chinese herb in traditional healing customs, belongs to the family of Scrophulariaceae. Study results suggest that Rehmannia root supports healthy blood sugar levels already within the normal range. (2)
Asiatic Cornelian Cherry (Fructus Corni Officinalis)
Long used in China, Asiatic Cornelian Cherry fruit is the dried, ripened sarcocarp of the fruit. In studies, it has promoted anti-aging characteristics. (3)
Panax Ginseng (Radix Panax Ginseng)
Panax ginseng is a mainstay of Chinese healing customs. In studies, ginseng has shown to support healthy blood sugar levels already within the normal range. (4)
Lycium (Fructus Lycii Chinensis)
In published studies, Lycium fruit has shown to exert positive effects on energy (5), and to possess antioxidant powers. (6)

What is the recommended daily dose of FloControl?
The recommended daily dose of FloControl is 3 capsules, 2-3 times per day.
How much FloControl can I safely take in a day?
You do not need to take more than 9 capsules in a day to gain the full effectiveness of the FloControl supplement.
How do I know FloControl is working for me?
FloControl is a Tango Advanced Nutrition product that should make a change for you in how you feel. It should promote your bladder and urinary tract health so that you feel better and have less physical discomfort throughout the day and night.
Usually, very clear results show up in the first month of use for most men and women.
The change should be very noticeable. Instead of saying to yourself, “I think this might be helping me”, you really should be able to say, “Wow, I feel a lot better.”
However, many men and women using FloControl report that at 6-8 weeks of consistent, daily use, noticeable and clear results occurred.
Do I have to take FloControl forever?
Everybody has a different set of circumstances that will determine how their bladder and urinary tract health will be promoted when using FloControl. Your response to the supplement will be determined by your individual health circumstances. Issues with bladder and urinary tract health may be long-standing over many years. This may determine how soon you notice positive changes and how long you may need or wish to take the formula.
However, the formula is strong enough so that most men and women who will get benefits should expect them in the first month of use.
When positive changes occur, you can lower your dose gradually by one capsule at a time every 4-5 days and expect to see continued benefits. The reason for this is that, as with all true health-promoting supplements, FloControl provides restorative results.
When should I take FloControl?
The most important consideration in taking FloControl is to use it daily and consistently. Convenience makes regular use possible, so including FloControl in your regular supplement routine is a good idea.
You can take FloControl with or away from meals.
Morning and early evening are the best times to take the formula to spread out its benefits over a 24-hour period.
Some people take FloControl about 1 hour before bedtime to make sure they have beneficial nutrients working while they are sleeping.
Can I take FloControl with other supplements?
Yes, you can take FloControl with and at the same time as you take other dietary supplements.
I take over-the-counter/prescriptive medicines for better circulation. Can I take FloControl with them?
You can take FloControl while you are using other products for your circulation or any other condition. However, you should always take FloControl or any other supplement at least 2 hours away from any medication to reduce any possible risk of interaction.
If you have any questions about using FloControl or any other supplement while you are using medications of any type, ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
Can I combine FloControl with some of your other products like Vital Cell?
You can take 2 capsules, 2 times per day of Vital Cell along with your regular doses of FloControl and expect additional benefits from the promotion of blood circulation.
You can also call one of our product specialists if you have questions about how best to combine our formulas. The toll-free number for product questions is 1-866-778-2646, ext. 2.
Can a woman take FloControl if she is pregnant or nursing?
No, we do not recommend that a woman take FloControl if she is pregnant or nursing. This is not because FloControl is unsafe but because there have been no safety studies performed on the ingredients in FloControl for pregnancy and nursing.
Can children take FloControl?
FloControl is not recommended for children or for females under the age of 18.
Can I give FloControl to my pet (cat, dog, or horse)?
Yes, however, you should contact a holistic veterinarian for advice on the dose you should give to your pet, since animals vary widely in size and speed of metabolism. Both of those factors determine doses for supplements for animals.
Is FloControl tested for contaminants that could harm my health?
Yes, we regularly test batches of our formulas to make sure they meet strict quality control guidelines recommended by government regulatory agencies.
Are there any side effects from taking FloControl?
FloControl does not cause drowsiness or make a person sleepy. It also does not contain any stimulants that might cause jitteriness or lack of sleep.
What do I do if I think taking FloControl is causing me discomfort?
The most common discomforts experienced by a tiny percentage of people when taking any vitamin, mineral, or herbal formula are digestive upset or very mild allergic reactions such as skin itching or irritability.
These minor discomforts usually disappear by taking a lower dose or by taking the supplement with meals.
If you should experience discomfort when taking FloControl and it does not go away with these suggestions, then discontinue use and contact our product specialist for further recommendations at 1-866-778-2646, ext 2. If we cannot determine a way for you to continue use of the product to gain its benefits, then we will arrange for a full refund for you.
I see that FloControl contains licorice. Will that raise my blood pressure?
No, there are less than 5 mg. of licorice powder in each capsule of FloControl.
This means that glycyrrhizic acid, the active ingredient in licorice responsible for elevating blood pressure is about 0.2 mg. per capsule. At the largest recommended dose of FloControl per day of 9 capsules, you would be getting 1.8 mg. per day of glycyrrhizic acid.
Studies have shown that continuous use of 100 mg. per day of glycyrrhizic acid is safe and does not elevate blood pressure.
You would have to take 500 capsules or 3+ full bottles of FloControl per day to even reach this safe amount of 100 mg. per day of glycyrrhizic acid.
