AN OUNCE OF PREVENTION
Antibiotics can be a useful tool to treat UTIs, but they come with a price:
⬦ The gut microbiome takes up to 6 months to recover from antibiotics.
⬦ Antibiotics can disrupt the balance of vaginal flora, making you more susceptible to yeast infections.
⬦ Antibiotic-resistant UTIs are on the rise.
The purpose of Happee is to prevent UTIs, minimizing the need for antibiotics and their risks and side effects. Your body will thank you!
Acerola cherry is one of the richest natural sources of antioxidants such as vitamin C, carotenoids, polyphenols and specific bioflavonoids. These powerful antioxidants boost immunity by protecting and strengthening cell membranes, making them less susceptible to infection. The antioxidants can also promote healing and reduce bladder inflammation caused by certain foods or the beginning of an infection.
D-Mannose is a simple sugar that occurs naturally in berries, apples and other fruits and vegetables. It is not easily broken down by the human body, so most of it is filtered through the kidneys into your urine. As the sugar passes through the urinary tract, it attaches to E. coli bacteria, preventing the bacteria from sticking to the lining of your urinary tract. (Fun fact: E. coli bacteria are responsible for 90% of UTIs...pesky little buggers!) The sugar-covered bacteria then gets flushed out when you pee. Magic! Clinical research shows that D-Mannose is as effective at preventing UTIs as antibiotics.
We believe the best way to treat a UTI is to prevent it from developing in the first place.
Happee empowers women to manage their urinary health in a way that is simple and effective. We're over the recurring pain and hassle, and we deserve UTI prevention that actually works. No, it's not too much to ask and YES, we are worth it!
UTIs are the worst. I know, because I got them for years. And if you’re reading this, then you know too.
I chugged cranberry juice, but all that did was increase my trips to the bathroom. While antibiotics cured my UTIs, they resulted in yeast infections and other side effects. I was determined to find a better, more natural choice. With a little help from my (doctor) friends, I created the solution that I wanted to see in the world.
You know what they say: if it doesn’t exist, make it. I made Happee for me, for you and for us.
I hope you love it!
