D-Mannose 500 mg Caps 120 Caps
Urinary Tract Cleanser. 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 bacterial lectins,
preventing them from sticking to the lining of the bladder.
Bacteria can then be flushed away during urination, thereby
precluding the formation of colonies within the urinary
tract. Because insubstantial amounts of D-Mannose are used
by the body, it does not interfere with blood sugar regulation.
D-Mannose is a simple sugar that cures more than 90% of
all urinary tract infections (most urinary tract infections
are caused by E-Coli and D-Mannose is most effective on
E-Coli) and, best of all, it does this without killing a
single bacteria. Nearly 15 years of clinical experience
has shown that D-Mannose is just as effective as antibiotics
are at curing urinary tract infections. Seems to good to
be true, right? An all natural simple sugar that's completely
safe, highly effective, inexpensive, and available without
HOW IT WORKS
The answer is found in the interaction between D-Mannose
and the bacterium found in over 90% of all bladder infections,
Escherichia coli ("E. coli"). No, not the infamous E.coli
mutants associated with unsanitary food processing that
has hospitalized and killed people. It's the normal E.coli
found as part of the "normal microflora" in every intestinal
tract. But even normal E.coli do not belong in the bladder
and urinary tract. In these areas they multiply and become
an undesirable infection.
Why doesn't the normal flow of urine from the kidneys through
the urethras into the bladder and thence beyond simply carry
the E.coli right along with it? What allows the E.coli to
"stick" to the inner walls of the bladder and even work
their way upward (like Spiderman) in some cases reaching
as far as the kidneys?
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, a "glycoprotein" also called a "lectin".
E.coli "lectins" have the unfortunate capability of enabling
the bacteria to "stick" to the inside walls of our bladders
and urinary tracts, so they can't be rinsed out by urination.
Fortunately, D-Mannose "sticks" to E.coli lectins even
better than E.coli lectin "sticks" 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!
