What's in it?
All of Uqora Control's ingredients are found in nature, and play a different role in giving you daily defense against bacteria that might already be lurking in your urinary tract.
Uqora Control contains ingredients that target bacteria and biofilm, and also provide a dose of powerful anti inflammatories and antioxidants to keep you and your urinary tract healthy.

How does it work?

Uqora Control gives you defense against recurring UTIs that aren’t linked to specific activities. Uqora Control works in 4 ways:
Breaks up biofilm, the tool that bacteria use to hide temporarily, unveiling themselves later.
Inhibits the growth of bacteria.
Binds with UTI-causing bacteria in your urinary tract so that you can safely flush bacteria out of your system.
Protects the kidneys from the damage of recurring UTIs and provides day-to-day health benefits with anti inflammatories and powerful antioxidants.
Bacteria protected by biofilm
Uqora Control breaks up biofilm and fights bacteria with antimicrobial activity, making it harder for them to grow.
Uqora Control flushes out bacteria that found its way into your urinary tract, and bacteria that may have been hiding via biofilm.

How do we know it works?
New research has shown that Uqora Control's ingredients not only have the power to inhibit the biofilm that bacteria use to hide themselves, but also to prevent the growth of those bacteria, and even kill the bacteria. Uqora Control’s ingredients are excreted in the urine, where they can take action. Once in the urinary tract, Uqora Control’s ingredients can enact their antimicrobial properties and attack the bacteria that might be living there.
In addition to playing a role in reducing the risk of recurrent UTIs, Uqora Control's ingredients can help protect from the damage UTIs can do to the body. Over time, UTIs can cause permanent injury to the kidneys, and the antioxidant properties of Uqora Control's ingredients have been shown to specifically protect the kidneys from damage.
Clinical research also shows other daily benefits of Uqora Control's ingredients, which include improved joint health, reduced free-radicals, improved immune response (curcumin - the active ingredient in turmeric) and improved metabolism, improved cardiovascular health, and potent anti-oxidant potential (EGC - an active ingredient in Green Tea). Typically, curcumin has poor bioavailability, meaning not much of it can be absorbed, but studies show that ingesting it with black pepper (found in Uqora Control) increases bioavailability up to 2,000%.
