Control Capsules, 60 ct
Biofilm can build up in the bladder and threaten urinary health. Control is packed full of ingredients that have been shown to clean biofilm in preliminary laboratory research, which is key to staying healthy on a day-to-day 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. Directions: Each bottle includes a 1-month supply (60 capsules). Take 2 capsules together with water daily. Ingredients: 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: 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. In Uqora Control, D-Mannose is in a purified form. 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 are antioxidants. 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.
