Bladder Issues [rate]

D-Mannose

Both the D-Mannose and Cranberry have preventive value against bladder infections as well as curative power to fight metabolic disorders that are inherited such as carbohydrate deficient glycoprotein syndrome.

The D-mannose works by preventing harmful bacteria sticking on the urinary tract walls, where they cause infections.
D-mannose is a simple sugar, which is naturally occurring and is chemically, close related to glucose but yet does not elevate blood sugar. The Escherichia coli bacterium is present in every bodies intestine tract. When this bacterium gets into the urinary and bladder, it multiplies uncontrollably, resulting in development of infection.
The cell walls of Escherichia coli have finger like projections whose tips contain glycoprotein, which helps them stick on the bladder wall, thus resisting getting washed down during urination. That is also how they get to climb into the kidney if not treated on time.

D-mannose on the other hand is even more effective in sticking on the bacterium projections than the bacterium sticks to the human cells. Therefore, when D-mannose is taken in large quantity, it is excreted in large quantities from the kidney to the urinary bladder and sticks on the bacterium, make them get washed out.
Just like the D-mannose, the cranberry juice fights the infection by preventing the adhesion of the E. coli of the urinary track because cranberry is high in d-mannose.

If you are experiencing frequent bladder infections, give cranberry extract or D-mannose a try and live free from infection.
