How does it work?

UTIs are caused by bacteria entering the urinary tract, and bacteria is more easily transferred during specific activities (like sex, exercise, swimming, and travel, for instance). Each person is different, and you know better than anyone which activities are causing your UTIs. Target works by flushing bacteria out of the urinary tract when you are at risk, that's why it is important to drink Target after these activities. If you're not always sure what causes your UTIs, you should consider adding Uqora Control to your regimen for ongoing defense.

Newly introduced bacteria

Uqora Target binds to bacteria before they can take hold

Uqora Target increases immunity and flow at the right time to flush the bound bacteria out during urination

Target increases immunity and flow at the right time to flush the bound bacteria out during urination
Target works in 4 key ways, giving your body a multi-layered defense to fight off bacteria, especially in those windows of increased risk:

Bacterial Defense
Binds to bacteria to stop the bacteria from attaching to your urinary tract.

Alkalizaes the urine
Alkalizes the urine, making it less acidic. This makes it more difficult for bacteria to grow and increases the function of your own immune cells.

Immunity boost
Bolsters your immune system when you need it most so that you are never left vulnerable.

Urinary Flow
Gently increases urine production, your body's best natural defense against UTIs, to flush bacteria out. Target also includes electrolytes to keep you balanced.

+How is Uqora different from cranberry juice and extracts?
Cranberry juice and extracts are ineffective, as highlighted by the American Medical Association’s study that confirmed: “it is time to move on from cranberries.” You would need to drink gallons of cranberry juice to get close to the effects of Uqora. Uqora’s active ingredients are found in trace amounts in fruits like cranberry but in very low concentrations. Uqora is the most effective product available designed with the best available clinical research.
+Can I mix Uqora Target with things other than water?
Yes. Uqora Target is safe to mix in things other than water, like tea.
+Exactly what activities should I drink Uqora Target after?
Sex is the leading cause of UTIs, but other activities like exercise, swimming, or camping can introduce bacteria. Sitting for long periods without urinating can increase your risk of UTIs by allowing more time for bacteria to travel up the urinary tract.
+Is Uqora Target a medicine? Or a treatment?
Uqora Target is not a medicine or a treatment, but intended for prevention only. If you have a UTI, we recommend you schedule a visit with your doctor.
+Does it work for men?
Yes! While less common, men also get UTIs. Uqora Target works for men the same way it does for women.
+I started getting more UTIs around/after menopause. Is Uqora Target a good solution for me?
Yes. As women age, we become more at risk of recurrent UTIs. With growing age, the immune system weakens, making women more vulnerable to not just UTIs, but all infections. Plus, menopause causes significant changes in hormones. This can affect the makeup of vaginal bacteria, which can protect the urinary tract by making it more difficult for dangerous bacteria to infect the vagina and travel to the urinary tract where they can cause an infection. Uqora helps you flush out the problematic bacteria. Plus, it includes vitamins and electrolytes to boost immune system function which is also helpful for women during and after menopause.

How do we know it works?

Our team leveraged the best clinical research available to create Target's special formula. The research demonstrates how each ingredient is important in reaching bacteria in the urinary tract to help flush them out, keeping you healthy and off antibiotics.

Our scientists and physicians carefully crafted Uqora Target based on what's been proven to work, and not old wives's tales. With dozens of studies around the world over the past 30 years, you can take a look at some of the key findings that show our ingredients can reduce the risk of UTIs by 75% or more.

How does Target work together with Control and Promote?

You can think about it like this: Target stops new bacteria entering your urinary tract, Control fights any bacteria that might already be hidden in your urinary tract from a past infection, and Promote is a specialized probiotic that supports good bacteria in the vagina, which is now known to help prevent UTIs.

Target packs a punch—with higher volumes of UTI-fighting ingredients, a gentle diuretic to increase urinary flow, urinary alkalizers to make the urine less acidic, and immune-boosting ingredients, all at exactly the right time and with the perfect doses. It's there for you during those vulnerable moments.

Control is there for you on the day-to-day, to keep fending off the sneaky bacteria that may be coming from within your body, or hiding in your urinary tract from a past infection (through a process called biofilm). It also includes powerful antiinflammatories and antioxidants to keep you in tip-top shape.

Promote restores good bacteria to the vagina. New research shows that imbalances in the vaginal microbiome increase UTI risk, and daily oral consumption of specific probiotic strains balances the vaginal microbiome. Promote keeps the balance in the vagina that helps protect the urinary tract from UTI-causing bacteria that get in.

+Do you suggest everyone drink Uqora Target and take Uqora Control daily?
The combination of Uqora Target and Uqora Control give more complete protection than either product alone. If you are not always sure what's causing your UTIs, we strongly recommend adding Uqora Control to your regimen and drinking Uqora Target after sex and exercise.
+Can I try just one of the products, or do I have to buy them together?
Of course! You can purchase each product separately. If, for example, your UTIs are always caused by sex, drinking one glass of Uqora Target after intimacy may be a sufficient prevention regimen.
+How do I know if I'm resistant to antibiotics?
If you have gone through a round of antibiotics, and your infection has not cleared, you may be resistant to that antibiotic. We recommend you speak with your doctor if you have concerns about being resistant to an antibiotic.
+How does bacteria stay hidden in your urinary tract?
Bacteria use a mechanism called biofilm to stay hidden. The bacteria group together and form a protective shield inside your cells. Within the biofilm they can potentially avoid your immune cells as well as antibiotics. Bacteria may lay dormant inside of these biofilms until your immune system is weak, at which time they will release themselves and establish a new infection.
