If you are one of the estimated 4 million annual sufferers of regular bladder infections, UTIs and cystitis, then this could truly be a game-changer for you!
D-Mannose has seen huge growth in the wellbeing and nutritional supplement world recently, particularly when it comes to the prevention of UTIs and cystitis.
Urinary and bladder infections are simply horrible! Symptoms can vary in both type and severity, but all of them have discomfort, pain and lack of overall wellness in common - some can be downright brutal.
Before we talk about how D-Mannose might help, especially when combined with Cranberry Extract, here are some interesting ‘UTI Facts’ for you.
Did you know?
- Around 90% of UTIs are caused by one single type of bacteria – E. Coli.
- Although women are affected more commonly, men and children also suffer with UTIs frequently.
- One in five women will have at least one UTI in her lifetime. Nearly 20 percent of women who have a UTI will have another, and 30 percent of those will have yet another. Of this last group, 80 percent will have recurrences.
- Besides E. Coli, contributing causes of regular UTIs can vary from dehydration to age, and from sexual activity to the internal structure of your body (and many others).
So, what is D-Mannose and how can it help you?
D-Mannose offers a natural alternative to help prevent infection from occurring and lower the chances of (sometimes frequent) recurrences.
It is a natural simple sugar that is similar to glucose in its structure. It is believed to be the ‘active’ ingredient in cranberries and cranberry juice that helps to minimise UTIs.
You only metabolise very tiny amounts of D-Mannose, and so the impact on blood sugar and overall health is very low.
You can absorb D-Mannose from foods such as blackcurrants, oranges, apples, tomatoes, cranberries (of course!) and other certain vegetables (like corn). Unfortunately, it is unlikely that you could absorb enough from your food to make it effective in preventing bladder infections.
Bodily absorption of D-Mannose is low, so it moves through your body quickly, ready to be excreted in your urine. This is what makes it a little bit magical!
How does it work?
When D-Mannose reaches your urinary system, it is believed to ‘latch’ onto the harmful bacteria there that may otherwise multiply to cause a UTI – namely, E. Coli. By latching onto the bacteria, D-Mannose prevents it from being able to attach to your bladder walls or lining, or your urinary tract.
What’s more, because your body excretes D-Mannose rapidly, the attached bacteria are also excreted quickly from your body, minimising the chance of infection and keeping harmful bacteria levels low.
As we mentioned before, it would be very hard to obtain enough D-Mannose from your diet alone to achieve this. So, by taking a D-Mannose supplement, you are ensuring you introduce enough D-Mannose into your system to do this effectively.
Why add Cranberry Extract?
D-Mannose is believed to be the ‘active’ ingredient in cranberries that helps to reduce UTIs and cystitis. So, if you are taking the ‘active’ ingredient as a supplement (to get the higher amount needed), why do you still want the cranberry, I hear you ask!
Cranberries aren’t JUST fabulous little berries because they produce D-Mannose. They are also a great source of vitamin C, antioxidants and fibre – all of which help boost your immunity and strengthen your physical wellbeing.
Absorbing the cranberry goodness in this way means that you are cutting out the additional sugar that is added to cranberry juice to make it ‘tasty’, so it’s all good!
This kind of additional support, alongside the D-Mannose, means this is a WINNING COMBINATION and supports the specific areas of your physical health that will keep you fighting fit and able to keep bladder infections at bay!
How are you going to benefit from taking a D-Mannose and Cranberry Extract supplement?
- Reduce the harmful bacteria in your bladder and urinary tract
- Support the ongoing good health of your urinary tract and bladder
- Actively and naturally help your body prevent and fight UTIs and cystitis
- Naturally help reduce the need to turn to antibiotics as often
- Boost immunity and overall wellbeing and strength
- Support the good health of your gut
What can you conclude?
D-Mannose is a natural sugar that you don’t metabolise fully. Therefore, it passes quickly through your system, latching onto harmful bacteria in your bladder and urinary tract along the way, and flushing it out of your body.
The addition of Cranberry Extract maximises the effects by boosting your immunity with vitamin C and antioxidants, while fibre helps maintain your good gut health.
Overall, this fabulous combination of natural supplements boasts fabulous benefits for your urinary tract health and can help reduce and prevent nasty UTIs, cystitis and bladder infections that may otherwise regularly bring you down.
