About Urox

 “Incontinence is a hidden problem and I was stunned to find that there are five million sufferers in Australia alone. People are expected to put up with it, rely on incontinence pads and many end up sacrificing their lifestyle and suffering in silence. This inspired me to develop Urox®, an effective herbal solution*.” Tracey Seipel, CEO, Seipel Group

Urox® is a unique, patented 3-herb blend of Equisetum arvense (Horsetail); the Ayurvedic extract of Crateva nurvala and the Japanese/Chinese extract of Lindera aggregata. It strengthens connective tissue structure to improve control of bladder and pelvic floor muscles and the urinary sphincter and promotes normal nervous bladder control*. And it works*! It should because it has over 20 years of research behind it!

Research validates the effectiveness of Urox® for all lower urinary tract symptoms including urinary frequency (urinating more than 8 times per 24-hour period), urinary urgency (rushing for the toilet), nocturia (getting out of bed at night for the toilet), stress urinary incontinence (mainly women after childbirth or with age where they have no warning and leakage accident when they cough, sneeze, or laugh etc.) and urgency urinary incontinence* (an accident when not reaching the toilet in time).

Urox® has been assessed in multiple human double-blind, randomised, placebo-controlled trials. These statistically significant results* were seen from 2-8 weeks (Schoendorfer, 2018)*:

  • 75% reduced their incontinence pad usage (to <1/day)
  • 23% of participants were fully continent
  • 60% reduction in urinary urgency
  • Halving of nocturia (the nighttime toilet trips)
  • 65% reduction in stress urinary incontinence
  • 57% reduction in urgency urinary incontinence
  • 90% of Urox® users felt Urox® had benefited them, improving quality of life, being less bothered by their bladder, better coping, less concern and worry, better sleep and improved social interactions
  • No significant side effects with Urox®
  • Results seen by 2-weeks with best results at 8-weeks

Mechanism of Action (MOA) research is extremely rare for natural products. Independent Urox® MOA research (Zapala et al, 2022) confirmed Urox® was highly effective for overactive bladder and urinary incontinence across all 18 areas measured (neuronal, biochemical and cystometric) resulting in:

  • Calming the brain neuronal voiding centre (needed in overactive bladder (OAB))
  • Improving bladder compliance, stabilising the bladder detrusor muscle
  • Reducing permeability and sensitivity of bladder lining (with OAB and cystitis)
  • Improved bladder storage, so can hold more urine (men with prostate issues)
  • Increased bladder pressure, so can hold urine for longer (women post-partum)
  • Increased voiding volume, without an increase in total daily urine production

Better Quality of Life

90% of participants felt Urox® had improved their quality-of-life. Using Urox® resulted in less embarrassment, frustration, nervousness, concern and worry. People coped better and had better sleep and social interactions. They participated in more physical activities, felt more comfortable travelling with others and had improved relationships with family and friends, as well as their partner or spouse. Results were seen in as little as 2 weeks*

What to look for when you are looking for a herbal bladder control product:

  • Formula research as it outweighs individual ingredient research.
  • Clinical trials, the gold standard is the randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled trial (RDBPCT). It ensures that changes in the test group result from the treatment rather than occurring by chance.
  • Peer-reviewed publications for added credibility
  • Independent Mechanism of Action research.

Urox® ticks all these boxes! 

 

We combine our Urox® formula with other prostate-specific ingredients in Prorox®, our specialised product for men's prostate and bladder health, and Urox® Junior is our product to help bedwetting** in children.
