In brief: Avoid irritants

There are no good foods to slow incontinence, but there are bladder irritants to avoid.
These foods are not damaging to the bladder but affect bladder control: coffee, tea, caffeine, carbonated drinks, acid drinks/food such as citrus, tomato. However, cranberry, blueberry & lingonberry do help protect against uti. Use fresh berries or juice, not cocktail, which is full of sugar & calories.

In brief: Fiber

If you are talking about stool incontinence, increasing fiber can slow it down.
This is usually our first way to decrease incontinence issues.
