D-Mannose 500 mg - 120 Caps
  • Healthy Urinary Tract
  • Washes Away Undesirable Particles

D-Mannose is a simple sugar that occurs naturally in some plants, including cranberries.  Although small amounts of D-Mannose are metabolized by the human body, much of it is rapidly excreted in the urine.  In the bladder, D-Mannose can adhere to undesirable foreign substances, preventing them from sticking to the lining of the bladder.
Because insubstantial amounts of D-Mannose are used by the body, it does not interfere with blood sugar regulation.

The cell walls of each E. coli are covered with tiny fingerlike projections. The very tips of these projections are an amino acid-sugar complex, & have the unfortunate capability of sticking the bacteria to the inside walls of our bladders and urinary tracts, so they can’t be rinsed out by urination.

Unfortunately for the E. coli, D-mannose sticks to E. coli lectins even better than E. coli lectins stick to human cells. When we take a large quantity of D-mannose, almost all of it spills into the urine through our kidneys, literally coating any E.coli present so they can no longer stick to the inside walls of the bladder and urinary tract. The E. coli are literally rinsed away with normal urination.

Why is rinsing away E. coli with D-mannose superior to killing them with antibiotics and anti-microbials? When an antibiotic is taken, it kills unwanted micro-organisms, but it also kills many good, friendly micro-organisms. Every woman is familiar with yeast infections that follow antibiotic use, as the friendly bacteria are killed off along with the bad bacteria, leaving the antibiotic-insensitive yeast to grow out of control. Long-term or often-repeated antibiotic use can lead to major disruptions in normal body microflora,often leading to major disruptions in health, especially immune system function.
