Science Behind Pro-Uro™

Pro-Uro page image_updated-01.png

Pro-Uro™ helps in:

Vaginal Bacterial Infection (Bacterial Vaginosis)

Vaginal Yeast Infection

(Yeast Vaginitis/ Vulvovaginal Candidiasis)

Urinary Tract Infection


Vaginal Bacterial Infection

(Bacterial Vaginosis)

Thin, watery, white/grey discharge

No fishy odour

Itch & irritation

Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) is a condition that results from the overgrowth of bad bacteria in the vagina, which changes the normal balance of vaginal microflora & the acidity (pH).

It is the most common vaginal condition in women aged

15-44 years old.

When symptoms are present, Bacterial Vaginosis is characterised by an unpleasant fishy odour.

When GR-1® & RC-14® in Pro-Uro™ is given to patients with Bacterial Vaginosis, 2.2 times more patients had reduced symptoms & was able to achieve a healthier, more balanced vaginal microflora.

Vaginal Yeast Infection

(Yeast Vaginitis/ Vulvovaginal Candidiasis)

Itch & irritation

No fishy odour

Thick white discharge
(cottage cheese)

Vulvovaginal Candidiasis (VVC) is the 2nd most common vaginal condition in females, after Bacterial Vaginosis.

It is more commonly found in women aged 15-44 years old. Stress, antibiotics & oral contraceptives use, pregnancy and diabetes are also risk factors of VVC.

VVC is characterized by itchiness, burning, soreness & irritation of the external parts of the female genitals. These symptoms may be accompanied by burning sensation when urinating or during sexual intercourse.

In clinical studies, it is shown that GR-1® & RC-14® in Pro-Uro can lead to a higher cure of VVC & a reduction of symptoms associated with yeast infection.

Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)

Painful urination

Increased frequency & urgency

Blood may be present in urine

Urinary tract infection (UTI) could occur when harmful bacteria enter into the urinary tract via the urethra.


Menopause, being sexually active, pregnancy and the use of birth controls can increase the risk of UTI.

In a study on the efficacy of Lactobacillus probiotics in UTI, it was found that not all Lactobacillus are efficient in preventing UTI. The study found that GR-1® & RC-14® in Pro-Uro™ is most helpful in urogenital applications.

Thus, GR-1® & RC-14® is the most effective probiotic combination in female urogenital health

How does GR-1® & RC-14® in Pro-Uro™ work?

1. Migration

After oral consumption of Pro-Uro™, GR-1®  & RC-14®  migrate to the vagina and urinary tract where they colonise and adhere to the vaginal and urethral walls.

2. Competition

GR-1®  & RC-14®  compete with harmful bacteria for nutrients and space, hence displacing them from binding sites and promoting healthy bacterial flora.

3. Defence

GR-1® & RC-14®  enhance immune defence by producing antimicrobial agents that kill and prevent the growth of harmful pathogens for optimal vaginal and urinary health
