Every year millions of people (mostly women) suffer with urinary tract infections (UTIs). Nearly 90% of these infections are caused by the bacteria E.coli. Overuse of antibiotics can encourage the mutation of bacteria, creating antibiotic-resistance strains. Good news is you may never need an antiobiotic for a UTI again! D-Mannose is an all natural product which may prove just as effective as an antibiotic. It serves as a kind of “magnet” in the urinary tract, attracting any present E. coli bacteria and keeping it from attaching to the bladder lining and dislodging any bacteria which are already attached! The bacteria “cling” to the D-Mannose molecules, and are flushed out with the normal urine flow. Bingo!
D-mannose is a naturally occurring simple sugar that has a structure similar to that of glucose. Only a small amount of D-mannose can be metabolized; any excess is excreted from the body via urine. Escherichia coli, the most common UTI-causing bacteria, produces chemicals that enable the organism to cling to epithelial cells where they proliferate and cause infection. When taken in large quantities, excess D-mannose that spills into the urine adheres to any E. coli that is present in the urinary tract, dislodging the bacteria from the cells that line the urinary tract walls and excreting them with normal urination.
