Natural Help for Urinary Tract Infections
D-mannose is a sugar molecule and close cousin of glucose. Many alternative physicians have found that it can effectively treat 90 percent of all UTIs within 1 to 2 days. Because D-mannose works by preventing bacteria from sticking to the lining of the urinary tract and not by direct antibiotic action, it does not have any of the potential for negative side-effects that antibiotics do.
D-mannose tastes good (because it is related to the sugar molecule, although it does not raise blood sugar levels). It is so safe that it can be used by pregnant women and young children. It is also one of the few “medicines” that children actually enjoy taking!
Although D-mannose is virtually unknown to conventional medical doctors, many research reports have proven its mode of action and effectiveness against E. coli, the microorganism that causes 90% of all UTIs.
D-Mannose Plus combines D-Mannose with cranberry extract to enhance it’s effectiveness. Cranberry prevents adherence of the bacteria E. coli to the bladder and urethra wall, creates some acidification of urine and decreases calcium excretion (excess calcium loss can be a cause of kidney stones).
Recommended Use: one level teaspoon (4.7 grams) in four to six ounces of cold water. For general urinary tract health, drink once daily. For infection, repeat four to five times daily.
