Why Uqora is different

2 min read

You’ve tried cranberry. You’re sick of antibiotics. So, what makes Uqora different?

Uqora uses science-backed ingredients to keep you healthy. No medications, no antibiotics—just products that work. So, how is it different than all that other stuff you’ve tried?

 

See how Uqora compares to cranberry and d-mannose on its own:

No cranberry

Even though cranberry has become synonymous with urinary tract health, the fact is that cranberry fails to hold up in controlled research.

 

Cranberry juice first emerged as a preventative mechanism in the 1920s, alleged to affect the acidity level in the bladder to help fend off infection. Since then, other theories that cranberry can hinder the formation of a UTI, pointing to the fact that cranberry juice and extracts include A-type proanthocyanidins (PACs). Still, studies have shown conflicting results but the folk remedy stuck anyway.

 

We’ve all been committed to cranberry for too long now. If cranberry worked, it’s hard to imagine that UTIs would still be the second-most common infection in the US. We can do better.

More than d-mannose

D-mannose is a type of simple sugar that is produced naturally in your body as well as in starches of certain fruits and veggies (like blueberries, corn, apples, cranberries, and other fruits). In research, d-mannose has been shown to attach to E. coli, which otherwise could bind to the urinary wall. D-mannose is a powerful mechanism, but it needs to be in the right environment at the right time to fully function. D-Mannose needs to reach the urine to act quickly. Uqora’s includes ingredients that all amplify the efficacy of d-mannose and tackle urinary health from different angles.

No medicine

Our products are not medicine and are free of antibiotics. While antibiotics are key to treating UTIs, we believe they should be used sparingly and reserved for treatment. When it comes to proactive urinary tract health, we’re all about simple, healthy ingredients that your body will not build up resistance to.

 

Overusing antibiotics can have serious consequences, ranging from indigestion, yeast infections, and even antibiotic resistance. Learn more about the risks of overusing antibiotics.

We're obsessed with clinical research

Each ingredient in Uqora was selected for its unique ability to improve urinary tract health. The ingredients in Uqora have been well-researched, and we’re committed to doing even more. We’re underway with multiple clinical trials and are on a mission to expand the body of research available to continue to raise the bar when it comes to urinary tract health.
