Uqora

Supplements to help prevent UTIs

Uqora is taking a new approach to an all-too-common problem — UTIs.

  • Efficacy

    Studies show that Uqora’s health products can reduce UTIs but they will not stop UTIs.

    Uqora's "Prevention System" is costly as a whole and most people probably don't need the whole bundle.

Any person familiar with the distinct agony that comes with a UTI has also probably used cranberry to try and prevent or cure the infection. None of Uqora's products include cranberry, and that’s because cranberry juice is not scientifically proven as a prevention strategy. Uqora's "Complete System" consists of three different products — a powder drink mix that gently flushes the urinary tract ("Target"), a capsule option that cleanses biofilm to keep your urinary tract clean ("Control") and vaginal probiotics ("Promote").

Studies show that Uqora’s products (mainly Target) can reduce UTIs, but they will not stop UTIs. If "traditional" UTI prevention methods (peeing after sex, cranberry) haven't been effective for you, then Uqora's options may be worth a shot. It's worth noting that the only proven treatment for a UTI is antibiotics.

Pros

  • If Uqora doesn’t work for you, the company has a 100% money-back guarantee

  • Target's powdered drink mix is pleasant to drink (it sort of tastes like lemonade)

  • Target is vegan and gluten-free

  • Uqora is committed to clinical trials to measure the effectiveness of its health products

Cons

  • Uqora is not approved by the FDA

  • Studies show that Uqora’s health products (mainly Target) can reduce UTIs, but they will not stop UTIs.

Tips

  • It's tempting to buy Uqora's “Prevention System,” but most people probably don’t need the entire bundle (it’s costly as a whole)

  • For those who use non-indwelling catheters, Uqora recommends taking their Control product daily, and drinking Uqora Target following catheter use.

I don't know that I really needed to use this that much but I had gotten a UTI and didn't want to risk it again so I bought the powder you can pour into your water to prevent UTIs, called "Target". It worked in that I didn't get another UTI, but I don't know how much of that was just luck. The taste was pretty good but it did make my stomach feel uncomfortable afterwards. As far as the scientific basis for the formula, I did notice that it has D-mannose, which has been shown to prevent E.coli from attaching to the urinary tract wall, therefore blocking it from causing an infection (E.coli is the number one cause of UTIs). The website also gives you a breakdown of all the ingredients in the product with reasons why they're added which I can appreciate.
