D-Mannose for Urinary Tract Health
D-Mannose is a monosaccharide hexose sugar, naturally found in some trees, berries and fruits, such as cranberry. It complements the body's natural cleansing process.* D-Mannose is a simple sugar that occurs naturally in many fruits (including cranberries) and plants. It attaches to E. coli bacteria in the urinary tract, and prevents it from sticking to the walls of the bladder and urethra. This action helps to flush out the bacteria and promote urinary tract health.*
D-mannose is often used as a supplement to support urinary tract health.* It is also used as a short-term preventive measure for UTIs.* D-mannose may also be helpful in supporting kidney health.*
How Does D-Mannose Work?
D-mannose is a simple sugar molecule that occurs naturally in certain fruits (like cranberries) and plants. This sugar attaches to harmful E. coli bacteria in the bladder and urethra (the tube that carries urine out of the body), and prevents them from sticking to the walls of these organs. This action allows the bacteria to be flushed out of the body through urination, promoting urinary tract health.*
It is important to note that while D-mannose can attach to harmful bacteria, it does not have any effect on good bacteria. This means that there is no risk of disrupting the vaginal microbiome or gut flora when taking this supplement.*
In other words, D-mannose does not have any negative side effects and can be taken without worry by anyone interested in supporting their urinary tract health.* [If intended audience seeking support for urinary tract health:] The following section will provide more information on how D-Mannose can help support your urinary tract health.
How Can D-Mannose Help Support My Urinary Tract Health?*
D-mannose supplements are often used as a preventative measure against UTIs or as a method of supporting already healthy urinary tracts.* Research has shown that taking 2 grams per day of D-mannose can help significantly reduce the number of UTIs a person experiences over the course of 12 months, compared to taking no supplement at all.* Furthermore, one study showed that taking 2 grams per day of D-mannose was just as effective as taking an antibiotic (nitrofurantoin) at reducing UTI incidence over 6 months.* Not only is D-mannose a gentle way to keep your urinary tract healthy, but it can also be used alongside other treatments for UTIs, like antibiotics. In fact, one study showed that taking 2 grams per day of D mannose along with an antibiotic (amoxicillin) was more effective than taking amoxicillin alone at reducing UTI incidence over 3 months. *
There are many things you can do to keep your urinary tract healthy, but incorporating supplements into your routine is one of the simplest ways to make sure you’re doing everything you can to prevent UTIs.* And among supplements, few are as well researched or gentle on your system as d-mannose.* If you’re looking for a way to support your urinary tract health*, consider giving d-mannose a try!*
