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 tastes good!
