All ingredients in Uqora Control have been studied in children in the United States, and have been determined to likely be safe following a dosing adjustment (described below).
Mechanism research in Uqora Control's ingredients show its ability to cleanse biofilm in the urinary tract, as well as strengthening the bladder wall. Uqora Control helps keep the bladder clean despite stress, hormonal changes, or having to hold your bladder for extended periods of time.
Due to the amount of Vitamin D3 present in Uqora Control, a dosing adjustment is advised for children. Uqora Control contains 750 IU (international units) of Vitamin D3 per capsule, but the daily requirement for children under 12 is only 400 IU/day. Vitamin D toxicity is rare; recent cases of intoxication involve high total intake in the range of 240,000 IU to 4,500,000 IU3.
In order to prevent excess Vitamin D3 consumption, we do not recommend that children under 12 take the adult dose of Uqora Control (2 capsules per day). Instead, children should be advised to take 1 capsule by mouth per day.
The amount of Vitamin D3 provided by 1 capsule of Control (750 IU) in addition to the recommended dietary allowance (600 IU) is within the upper limits of intake (2500IU) for children 1+ years old set forth by the Institute of Medicine (IOM). It is important that children using Uqora Control do not receive any additional supplementation of Vitamin D3. If your child has any other health conditions, or uses any other dietary, herbal, or multivitamin supplements, we recommend discussing Uqora Control with your pediatrician prior to use.
For children who can not swallow capsules, Uqora Control maintains its integrity when taken out of the capsule if consumed immediately. For example, parents may empty the contents of 1 control capsule into a small serving of applesauce (a serving size that the child can eat within minutes). For best results, Uqora Control capsules should be swallowed intact.
Recommended dose for children under 12: 1 capsule by mouth once daily with a glass of water.
