Our story: a note from Uqora’s CEO

 

In 2014, I had 8 UTIs. 

If you’ve ever had a UTI, then you understand how the hours between your first symptoms followed by the doctor’s office to the wait at the pharmacy can seem to drag on forever.

I was desperate to get ahead of the problem, and not just rely on antibiotics for treatment. I was told repeatedly that I could take low levels of antibiotics daily to get ahead of the problem, but outside of that there was little I could do.

That didn’t sit well with me or my partner, Spencer. We suspected there had to be a better way to avoid UTIs without relying on antibiotics alone.

Spencer and I were determined to be proactive. With a background in molecular biology from UC Berkeley and experience developing consumer products, Spencer began developing a solution.

Uqora was born in collaboration with industry experts and medical professionals, leveraging the best clinical research available. Uqora is tasty, safe, effective, and natural. Most importantly, Uqora put the power back in my hands and the many hands of women searching for a way to break the cycle.

The only thing more gratifying than staying out of the doctor’s office myself is helping women all over the world avoid UTIs and antibiotics. Join us to get ahead of UTIs and continue the focus on proactive women’s health.
