Frequently Asked Questions
Utiva is a great option to prevent UTIs as our product guarantees 36mg of Proanthocyanidins (PACs for short). PACs have a special ability: anti-adhesion as it interferes with the harmful bacteria to stop them from sticking to the bladder wall, minimizing risk of infection. When taking Utiva daily, around the same time this results in natural flushing of bacteria when urinating. It is important to take Utiva around the same time as it works on a 24 hour cycle.
Utiva UTI Control is recommended to be taken as per the following:
PREVENTION: 1 capsule daily at the same time every day
SEX-ASSOCIATED or SYMPTOMATIC: 2 capsules the day of and 2 capsules 24 hours later. It is safe to take 2 capsules a day for a few days if needed.

Utiva UTI Control is safe to take while on antibiotics and can also help ensure PACs are in your system to prevent further bacteria from sticking.
