Our Editors Review Uqora
You’re stuck in traffic, halfway through an 8-hour flight, or mid-work on a project when it starts: the pressure, the urgency, the dreaded pain and burning. “ Ugh, notagain,” you think. You’ve done it all: dutifully peeing after sex, chugging cranberry juice by the gallon, or an endless merry-go-round of antibiotics over the years that left you antibiotic-resistant. We’ve all been there—stuck in the pesky cycle of UTIs.
In addition to being uncomfortable, UTIs are one of the most common infections out there. It’s estimated that at least one-third of females in the U.S. have been diagnosed with a UTI by the time they turn 24. And UTIs tend to worsen when women begin menopause because their estrogen production drops, which leads to changes in the vaginal ecosystem. In fact, 10-15% of all women over the age of 60 experience recurring UTIs*.
Like the many people out there, Our Women’s Wellness Editors have long yearned for an effective urinary tract health solution. But innovation has been stagnant—until now.
We recently discovered a brand that allows you to take charge of your health. It’s called Uqora and they offer UTI relief products and resources that are trusted by over 400,000 people. They also offer innovative urinary tract health supplements so you can finally get ahead.
Here’s a rundown of everything you need to know:
What is Uqora?
Founded by a chronic UTI sufferer and developed in collaboration with physicians and scientists, Uqora is committed to changing the urinary health landscape. It’s a brand that’s dedicated to providing both UTI education and product innovation via antibiotic-free, research-backed, proactive supplements you can order online.
Uqora has three unique supplements to help you maintain optimal urinary tract health. Each supplement was designed to support a different element of urinary health, ensuring you are covered from all angles. For maximum support, we recommend Uqora’s Complete Regimen. However, you can customize your regimen for your specific needs. Not sure what products are right for you? Take the quiz on their website or reach out to their team for quick and caring support.
How Do Uqora’s Proactive Supplements Work?
Uqora’s Complete Regimen features three products: Flush, Defend, and Promote.
1. Flush is a convenient drink mix that provides a simple, effective way to regularly flush out your urinary tract. It works by using special ingredients to alkalize your urine, making it less acidic. It takes effect upon urination to continually keep your tract clear, and its mild pink lemonade taste makes it easy to drink with meals or by itself.
This product is meant to provide urinary support when you need it most, like after sex, exercise, or traveling.
Directions: Each box contains 10 packets. Mix 1 packet in 8-12 ounces of water. Drink every 3 days, after sex, or up to 3X a day—as needed.
2. Defend is a capsule-based oral supplement that cleanses biofilm to keep your bladder clear and support bladder wall integrity on a daily basis. Defend contains key ingredients, including turmeric root extract and green tea extract, which mechanism research shows have the ability to clean biofilm.
This product is for you if urinary tract health impacts your life 3+ times a year
Directions: Each bottle includes a 1-month supply (60 capsules). Take 2 capsules together orally with water daily.
3. Promote is an oral vaginal probiotic that helps maintain “good” vaginal bacteria, including three specific strains (Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Lactobacillus Rhamnosus, and Lactobacillus Reuter) that live naturally in a healthy vagina. Your urogenital health—in other words, your vaginal and bladder health—are closely related, which means caring for your vaginal health is essential.
This product is for you if you need extra support when it comes to vaginal health. If you are menopausal, sexually active, or have just finished taking antibiotics this product might be best for you.
Directions: Each bottle includes a 1-month supply (30 capsules). Take 1 capsule orally with water daily. (You can also take Promote alongside other probiotics you might be taking.)
How Uqora’s products support different age groups
Uqora’s products are designed to support you through the changes that affect urinary tract health—from periods to menopause all the way through old age, when your urinary health might need more support.
No matter the gender—yes, guys have UT troubles, too—UTIs can become more prevalent as men get older. In fact, many male customers in the Uqora community have found success with Uqora Defend and Uqora Flush.
Of course, your needs will vary based on your age, so we recommend heading over to Uqora’s Reviews tab and using the age filter to see what folks in your range find most helpful.
