You need urinary tract support
You’re looking to balance the vaginal microbiome
Promote is our specialized vaginal probiotic (not a digestive probiotic) which contains the two strains clinically proven to maintain the good bacteria that balance the vaginal microbiome, a key component to optimal urinary health. Control's ingredients have been shown to clean biofilm. Biofilm can build up in the bladder on a day-to-day basis, and cleansing biofilm regularly is key to staying healthy.

Keep your bladder clear on a daily basis
How it works
Control cleanses biofilm, which can build up in the urinary tract on a recurring basis. Control can help keep your bladder clean in the face of hard-to-pinpoint things like stress, hormonal changes and holding your bladder, which can all threaten urinary health.
Each bottle includes a 1-month supply (60 capsules). Take 2 capsules together with water daily.
Uqora Control includes multiple active ingredients, which all play an important role:
Black Pepper Powder
Piperine is the “active” compound in black pepper. Oddly enough, Piperine can increase the bioavailability of curcumin by 2,000%! Typically, curcumin has poor bioavailability, meaning our bodies don’t absorb the ingredient well on its own. Uqora Control includes black pepper powder in a small dose to enable our bodies to better absorb curcumin.
Curcumin is the “active” compound in turmeric, a flowering plant commonly used as a spice that is a member of the ginger family. Curcumin gives Uqora Control its yellowish color. Biofilm can build-up in the urinary tract and curcumin (along with the polyphenols from green tea) has been shown to cleanse biofilm in preliminary laboratory research. Curcumin is also commonly heralded for having anti-inflammatory benefits. The curcumin in Uqora Control is extracted from the turmeric root. Curcumin is not recommended for people taking the blood thinner warfarin as it may interact with the drug.
D-Mannose is a type of carbohydrate that occurs naturally in small quantities in many fruits and vegetables including apples, peaches, green beans, and broccoli, but it is not metabolized like other sugars that impact blood sugar. Mannose is an important part of human metabolism and urinary health. It has been shown to bind to bacteria in the urine. When bound to D-mannose, bacteria like E. coli are unable to attach to the bladder wall and compromise urinary health.
Green Tea Extract
This extract is mostly (95%) made up of compounds in green tea leaves called catechins, like EGCG and EGC. These have been the subject of much research on various health benefits and have antioxidant properties. Along with curcumin, catechins have been shown to cleanse biofilm in preliminary laboratory research. The green tea extract in Uqora Control is from the leaves of green tea plants. The caffeine is removed during the extraction process.
Hypromellose: This is a vegan polymer used to make the capsule.
Control and Target contain different active ingredients. While the two products are complementary, they don’t have the same function. Control is designed to keep the urinary tract clear on a day-to-day basis by regularly cleansing biofilm. Target flushes the urinary tract when you need support, like after sex, with the right amount of effective ingredients.
Biofilm is a tool that bacteria use to stay hidden. Mechanism research on the ingredients in Control shows their ability to cleanse biofilm.
Yes, Promote, Target and Control, can be taken in the same day. Taking all three products provides maximum urinary support, as Target flushes the urinary tract, Control cleanses biofilm from the urinary tract, and Promote balances the vaginal microbiome.
Balance your vaginal microbiome
How does Promote help with urinary health?
When the vaginal microbiome is not in balance with healthy populations of lactobacillus, it can impact the urinary microbiome. To maximally support urinary health, vaginal health needs to be taken into consideration.
How it works
Promote includes three specific strains of bacteria, Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Lactobacillus Rhamnosus, and Lactobacillus Reuteri, which live naturally in a healthy vagina and release acids to help maintain healthy bacteria in the vagina. Promote balances the vaginal microbiome by providing these good bacteria.
Each bottle includes a 1-month supply (30 capsules). Take 1 capsule with water daily.
How is Promote different from other probiotics?
Not all probiotics are the same. Promote is a vaginal probiotic, not a digestive probiotic. Promote supports the good bacteria that are specific to the vagina. You can take Promote alongside other probiotics you might be taking.
Uqora Promote includes multiple active ingredients, which all play an important role:
Chicory root fructo-oligosaccharides
FOS is a “prebiotic”. Essentially, this means the FOS is food for the bacteria when they are consumed and activated to help them survive their journey through the gut. FOS is a soluble fiber found in fruits and vegetables that helps the probiotics survive on their journey into and through the body.
Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Lactobacillus Rhamnosus & Lactobacillus Reuteri
L. Acidophilus, L. Rhamnosus and L. Reuteri are specific types of lactobacillus that live naturally in high concentrations in a healthy human vagina. As part of their metabolism, they release acids that keep the vaginal microbiome balanced. When consumed orally, these bacteria have been shown to travel from the gut to the vagina where they can populate. Promote balances the vaginal microbiome by providing these good bacteria.
Hypromellose: This is a vegan polymer used to make the capsule
Magnesium Stearate: This is a common ingredient in food and supplements to safely keep powders from clumping.
Microcrystalline cellulose: Microcrystalline cellulose is purified plant polymer. Cellulose composes most of the dry weight of most plants. Used as a bulking agent to keep the capsules tightly packed without extra air.
Silica: Also known as silicon dioxide, silica is one of the most common compounds on earth and is found in many plants. Commonly used in food products, in Uqora Promote, silica safely maintains the powder’s texture and keeps it from clumping together.
No. Promote is a probiotic designed for vaginal health, not digestive health. Not all probiotics are the same, and there are many different types of lactobacillus, and they live in different parts of the body. The types of lactobacillus in Promote are specific to the vagina.
Yes, Promote, Target and Control, can be taken in the same day. Taking all three products provides maximum urinary support, as Target flushes the urinary tract, Control cleanses biofilm form the urinary tract, and Promote balances the vaginal microbiome.
