D-MANNOSE FOR THE PREVENTION AND TREATMENT OF URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS
Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) are extremely common,
resulting in more than 8 million doctor visits a year. Everyone is
susceptible to urinary tract infections including men and children, but women tend
to suffer from them the most. UTIs can also be an aggravating, recurring health problem for
individuals with spinal cord injury and dysfunction. Approximately 90% of
all Urinary Tract
Infections are caused by E. Coli bacteria (1).
D-Mannose is a safe, simple sugar that
occurs naturally in peaches, apples, berries, and certain trees. Unlike
antibiotics, D-Mannose does not kill any bacteria but simply displaces
them, thereby discouraging them from attaching to the wall of the bladder
or urinary tract. In addition, because the body metabolizes only small amounts of
D Mannose and excretes the rest in the urine, it does not interfere with
blood-sugar regulation, even in diabetics. D-Mannose can be used by men,
women, children, and even many pets.
HOW D-MANNOSE COMPARES TO ANTIBIOTICS
Antibiotics kill unwanted micro-organisms, but they can also kill many
friendly micro-organisms. Many different bacteria that
live within our digestive system are essential for proper digestion and
good health. By contrast, D-Mannose (available OTC, or over-the-counter) does
not kill bacteria. It simply helps to flush E.coli out of the urinary
tract. As an extra bonus, D-Mannose actually
If you do use antibiotics as a
however, it is important to take a high-quality, high-potency probiotic
to replace the beneficial bacteria that the antibiotic kills.
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). This is not the infamous E.coli associated with
unsanitary food processing that has hospitalized and killed people. It is
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 can multiply and become an
Why doesn't the normal flow of urine from the kidneys through the urethras
into the bladder out of the body 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, in some cases
reaching as far as the kidneys?
The cell walls of each E.coli are covered with tiny fingerlike
projections. The 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 (2, 3,
4). The E.coli are literally rinsed away with normal urination!
WHO CAN USE D-MANNOSE
Who can't? Because it is so effective and benign, even pregnant women who
are susceptible to recurrent UTI's can safely take D-Mannose as a
preventative measure to ward off future urinary tract infection attacks. D-Mannose is
for infants and young children. And unlike antibiotics, one can safely stop treatment in a few
days. An existing urinary tract infection can be completely cleansed in as little as
after which you can stop taking D-Mannose if you wish.
also be an effective UTI treatment for men who have frequent e-coli infections due to
prostate cancer treatment.
What about people
who have diabetes? As with anything new, it is always best to check with
your doctor. Diabetics usually need to limit their intake of sugar.
However, since D-Mannose isn't metabolized, it should not interfere with blood sugar
