How D-Mannose Works On UTIs

D-mannose is a naturally sugar which can be found in many different fruits such as apples, blueberries and cranberries ( this may be the reason why cranberries are a popular herbal treatments for cystitis and UTIs). It is a very popular in alternative medicine as treatments for UTIs, or urinary tract infections.

One of the main effectiveness of d-mannose is to prevent and reverse UTIs. These are commonly caused by E coli, E coli bacteria cause UTIs by attaching themselves to the lining of the urinary tract. If the attachment is prevented then this means the bacteria is simply eliminated from the body normally during urination. 
 
How does this work?
To attach themselves to the lining of the urinary tract, e coli use fimbria (tiny, hair-like limbs) which line the bacteria’s inner cell walls. Mannose sugars occur naturally in the lining of the human urinary tract, this means that e coli are very easily able to secure a foothold in the body and cause infection.
 
D-mannose helps take advantage of this natural mechanism to the body’s advantage. Different to other sugars, d-mannose is not converted and stored in the body but differently goes into the bloodstream without changing and circulates through the kidnews into the urine. When the d-mannose has entered the urine it attracts any unattached e- coli and 
 
You can use d-mannose to eliminate UTI’s in as little as 48 hours or sometimes less. They are also used as a prevention method which is not the case with antibiotics.
