UTIs are caused by bad bacteria growing in the urinary tract. Our products flush out new bacteria introduced to the urinary tract (Target), break up old bacteria that may be hiding from a previous infection (Control), and support the good bacteria in the vaginal microbiome that naturally protect from UTIs (Promote).
Uqora uses ingredients found in nature to keep you UTI-free. No medications, no antibiotics—just simple, effective prevention.
Target flushes out bacteria that travel into the urinary tract. Certain activities, like sex, are more likely to introduce new bacteria, but it isn't always sex that introduces new bacteria. Drinking Target after sex and every three days enables your body to regularly flush out new bacteria before an infection can take hold.
Target works in 4 key ways:
1. Binds to bacteria so they can’t take hold.
2. Gently increases urinary flow at the right time to flush bacteria out.
3. Alkalizes the urine, making it more difficult for bacteria to grow.
4. Boosts the immune system to fight bacteria with your natural defenses.

Control breaks up "biofilm", a tool bacteria use to hide, later causing a UTI. Take 2 capsules of Control daily to break up biofilm and fight UTIs that are actually caused by hidden bacteria.
Control works in 4 key ways:
1. Makes it harder for bacteria to form biofilm
2. Chips away at existing biofilm
3. Slows bacterial growth
4. Binds to bacteria so UTI-causing bacteria can be flushed out of the urinary tract

Promote is a specific probiotic that balances vaginal pH by restoring the good bacteria that naturally protect you from UTIs.
Antibiotics, sexual activity, periods, and other things can disrupt the balance in the vagina and alter vaginal pH, causing it to rise. This rise in vaginal pH can lead to overgrowth of bad bacteria or yeast, causing bacterial vaginosis (BV) and yeast infections. The bacteria mainly responsible for BV (Gardnerella vaginalis) is now known to increase the risk of UTIs up to 13-fold.
Promote includes the only two probiotic strains clinically demonstrated to restore and maintain good vaginal bacteria and pH (Lactobacillus Rhamnosus and Lactobacillus Reuteri). These bacteria are specific to vaginal health, and keep yeast and bad bacteria at bay, which is a key component of UTI prevention.

UTIs are caused by bacteria entering the urinary tract—most often, E. coli is responsible for causing UTIs (about 90% of the time, actually). For a lot of us, UTIs are caused by specific activities as UTI-causing bacteria (E. coli) can be transferred to the urinary tract during these activities.
Sometimes, UTIs seem to come out of nowhere. And once we get one UTI, our likelihood of getting another increases. Biofilm is a tool that UTI-causing bacteria use to hide from your immune system and antibiotics, waiting for a good time to release and start a recurrent UTI. That's why some UTIs seem to come out of nowhere, unlinked to specific activities.
