Cytoplan D-mannose 50g
Most urinary tract infections are caused by E. coli bacteria. D-Mannose is a natural sugar that is not metabolised by humans (non glycaemic) that binds to E. coli and prevents adhesion and replication. Cranberry is included in this supplement as it similarly helps prevent the replication of bacteria.
D-Mannose is most notably found in certain plants, Pineapples and Cranberries
Although a natural sugar, D-Mannose is not metabolised by humans and on ingestion passes immediately through to the kidneys and urine
D-Mannose “sticks” to E. coli lectins preventing the adhesion of E. coli to the lining of the bladder and urinary tract thus helping to prevent replication of and flush the bacteria away through normal urination. It is:
- Yeast free, the product is suitable for vegetarians and vegans and people with Candida and yeast sensitivities
- Suitable for men, women and the elderly
- Free from genetically modified substances
This product can be used in small doses daily in those susceptible to Urinary Tract Infections and in larger doses during the infection
D-Mannose is a natural sugar that is commonly found in certain plants and cranberries. It is not metabolised by humans and hence, on ingestion, passes through the digestive tract to the kidneys and urine for excretion. D-Mannose has great capacity to bind to pathogens, particularly E. coli, a bacterial species often identified in urinary tract infections, and in so doing prevents the adhesion and replication of E. coli and other foreign substances to the inside walls of the bladder and the UTI Tract. This supplement also contains cranberry extract ,which in concentration contains not only D-Mannose but also a high level of cranberry alkaloids which collectively amplify the bacterial inhibition throughout the urinary tract.
