Frequently asked questions about cystitis, symptom relief and Ural

There are two types of Ural products you can use if you have cystitis:

Ural Effervescent Powder can be taken as soon as you notice any cystitis symptoms.

This pleasant-tasting effervescent drink helps make your urine less acidic providing relief from the painful, burning symptoms of cystitis. It can be taken up to four times a day – just follow the directions on the pack.

If your symptoms don’t improve within a couple of days or if you feel worse, see your pharmacist or doctor.

Ural Effervescent Powder shouldn’t be taken for more than five days, unless your doctor or other healthcare professional advises otherwise.

Ural High Strength Cranberry Daily Supplement capsules may help if you have cystitis that keeps recurring.

This concentrated cranberry extract supplement is designed to help support a healthy urinary tract and may reduce the risk and frequency cystitis. These easy to swallow gel capsules can be taken daily or as directed by your doctor or other healthcare professional.

You can sometimes manage a mild case of cystitis yourself through simple things like drinking lots of fluids, (especially water), avoiding acidic drinks and foods, and using a urinary alkaliniser such as Ural.

These types of self-care can help relieve burning cystitis symptoms, but do not treat its cause.  So, if things are not improving you will need to talk to your doctor, who may prescribe antibiotics.

Ural can be used in combination with most antibiotics to help relieve painful symptoms while the antibiotic begins its work. Always ask your doctor or pharmacist if you can take Ural in combination with the particular antibiotic prescribed for you.

Remember, if your doctor prescribes antibiotics, always take the full course even if you feel better before you have finished them.

Cranberries have a long history of being used in urinary health. Cranberry supplements will not cure cystitis, but may help reduce the risk and frequency of cystitis by discouraging harmful bacteria from sticking to the walls of your bladder and urethra.

Ural Effervescent Powder contains 644 mg of sodium per sachet and should be taken into account if you are on a low sodium diet. Please refer to your healthcare professional for further advice if you are unsure if Ural is right for you.

Ural High Strength Cranberry Daily Supplement capsules are sodium free.

Ural High Strength Cranberry Daily Supplement capsules are sugar free, and free from all artificial flavours and sweeteners.

When you are prone to having cystitis drinking lots of water is one of the easiest things you can do to help prevent it coming back. You may find that there are certain foods and drinks, products or activities that trigger your cystitis – keeping a diary may be a helpful way of identifying these possible triggers.

If you have problems with cystitis that keeps coming back why not try a daily dose of cranberries with Ural High Strength Cranberry Daily Supplement capsules.
