Urinary Tract Infections or UTIs is an infection in any part of urinary tract. UTIs are caused by bacteria entering the urinary system and most infections occur in the bladder and urethra. The most common bacteria known to cause UTI is Escherichia coli (E. coli). UTIs are prevalent in women, babies, and older people. Statistically, around one in two women have the risk to develop UTI in their lifetime.

UTIs are inconvenient and unpleasant, though not serious unless infection spreads to the kidneys. Most UTIs occur in the bladder and urethra that are treatable. There are many effective OTC UTI treatment options you can try, such as Nepbio’s (NBI), URICIL, a 2 in 1 urinary alkalizer, and natural antibacterial that can help treat your UTIs quite promptly.

Today, we’ll talk about UTI and our OTC UTI treatment option that is completely natural and powered by turmeric.

What is UTI?

UTI, an acronym for urinary tract infection is an infection that can affect any organs within the urinary system including the kidney, bladder, urethra, ureters. UTI is a public health problem that affects at least 145 million people per year. UTIs in the bladder and urethra are treatable. However, if not treated promptly, it can travel up to the kidneys and cause a more serious infection, known as nephritis - infection of the kidneys. Diabetics, (particularly Type II Diabetics) are also prone to urinary tract infections (UTIs), bladder issues and sexual dysfunction. Diabetes can often make your urologic conditions even worse because it can impact blood flow, nerves and sensory function in the body (Find out how NBI’s Type II Protein Sweetener helps to keep your blood sugar levels in good control)

UTIs are caused by bacteria, the most common being Escherichia coli, which will then cause inflammation and irritation of the urinary tract. UTI for most people is a one-off illness that can be treated easily through proper treatment. However, for some people, it’s a recurring problem (2 or more UTIs within 6 months or 3 or more UTIs within a year is considered recurring), and it is best to have an effective OTC UTI treatment plan.

What are the signs & symptoms of UTI?

Common UTI symptoms include:

  • Burning sensation when urinating
  • Frequent urge to urinate
  • Strong smelling or cloudy urine
  • Lower abdomen pain
  • Blood in the urine

UTIs can also happen to children, but at a lower rate than women. Children will also have the same symptoms, and in addition, they may even have fever, irritability and feeding problem. 

A simple dipstick urine test will reveal the clinical signs of UTI, which includes blood and pus cells in the urine.

Antibiotics vs OTC Treatment for UTI

Patients with UTIs are often prescribed antibiotics as the first line of treatment. However, prolonged usage of antibiotic can result in ‘antibiotic resistance ’meaning antibiotics lose their effectiveness against UTIs. As a result, there has been an increase in demand for OTC UTI treatment among people. So, the next time you visit your GP, ask them about URICIL and how it can help keep UTI at bay.

What is URICIL?

URICIL is a 2-in-1 Urinary Alkaliser and Natural Antibacterial which helps to relieve symptoms of UTI and reduce the occurrence of medically diagnosed cystitis, which is the most common type of UTI. URICIL stands out from the other OTC UTI treatment options, thanks to its main compound - Curcumin, a natural ingredient extracted from turmeric.

Nepbio’s (NBI) URICIL is-

Anti-Inflammatory - Curcumin in URICIL is a potent anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory agent that helps to relieve the inflammation of the bladder during cystitis.

Potent Antioxidant - Curcumin is also a potent-antioxidant which helps to fight infections and reduces its recurrence significantly.

Urinary Alkaliser - URICIL also has potassium citrate, which makes the urine less acidic and helps to relieve the painful burning sensation when urinating, a common symptom of UTI.

Natural antibacterial agent - URICIL is an anti-bacterial agent, which eliminates all chances of antibiotic resistance that arises from prolonged antibiotic usage.

URICIL has become a popular over the counter treatment for UTI and can be found in all good pharmacies all over the country. You can also shop for URICIL, online at www.nepbio.com. Try the medication yourself to believe its effectiveness.
