Uqora is a California based health and wellness company which markets a line of women's products aiming to reduce the frequency and treat urinary tract infections (UTIs).
How Does It Work?
According to their website, urinary tract infections are a common illness among women, with roughly 50% of women experiencing at least UTI in her lifetime and 20% of women having issues with frequent UTIs.
Though this is a common illness, it can cause extreme discomfort and further serious health issues, including bladder and kidney infections, and more.
The only treatment for UTIs at this time is prescribed antibiotics, which is important because – as mentioned above – a UTI left untreated can lead to serious problems.
Unfortunately antibiotics kill the bad bacteria along with the good bacteria, and can lead to yeast infections, and women who frequently get UTIs can build up a resistance to the antibiotics, which can result in more serious infections over time.
The goal of Uqora is to be a supplement that prevents the onset of UTIs and is only taken when you have participated in activities that are high risk for resulting in infections, which includes sexual activity, prolonged periods of physical activity, or extended periods without a shower.
Users are instructed to mix the Uqora powder with 8 to 10 ounces of water and take it within one hour of any activity which may result in a UTI.
Ingredients and Side Effects
Their website states that there was a study conducted on the ingredients included in Uqora, in the specific doses used in the study, which showed that of the 308 people who participated, those who took the Uqora ingredients were four times less likely to develop a UTI than those who didn’t take it.
The main ingredients in this product are D-Mannose, Vitamin-B6, Vitamin-C, Potassium, and Magnesium.
Of these ingredients, D-Mannose and Vitamin-C are the two that are supposed to be directly related to preventing the infection itself, while the other ingredients are there to help your body physically flush out the bad bacteria.
A single box of Uqora currently includes ten individual packets and is priced at $25.00 for a one-time purchase, with free shipping.
Customers who have tried Uqora and know they like it can choose to receive regular shipments of Uqora for a 10% discount, or $22.50 per box, and can choose their desired shipment periods between 30 and 90 days, depending on your own personal needs.
Unfortunately at this time it does not appear the Uqora.com website has a published Refund Policy nor does it have a Terms and Conditions that users can refer to.
If you're worried about the ability to receive a refund for any reason, you should contact their Customer Service team in advance of ordering the product to see if they can provide you with any information.

Unfortunately there are not any reviews for this product at this time from women who have used this product to prevent a UTI, likely because this is still a fairly new product. That being said, there are some things to consider about this product.
First, the study quoted on their website used an incredibly small sample size, one that normally wouldn’t be considered representative of a study that has conclusive results.
In addition, of the ingredients that they have listed on their website, none of them have actually been shown to prevent urinary tract infections.
Customers will want to take this into consideration when purchasing this product and should know that much of the effectiveness of this product may have to do with increasing the frequency of urination after the activities which may cause UTIs, and which can be replicated simply by drinking water or other powdered supplements that are intended to boost your immune system.
Competitors and Alternatives?
One of the most popular supplements that are intended to prevent UTIs is cranberry juice or cranberry pills, but these must be taken every day in order to have any effect.
