How does D Mannose treat Bladder & Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)?
Urinary Tract Infections are treated safely and quickly without the use of antibiotics. The problem with traditional antibiotics is that they kill bacteria indiscriminately. There are over 1,000 species of “good bacteria” in the human body – each with their own “job” to do. UTI Slip D Mannose treats urinary tract infection (UTI) quickly and safely by causing the bacteria to be flushed right out of your body. No bacteria, no infection.
Exactly how does this work?
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”). No, not the infamous E. coli mutants associated with unsanitary food processing that has hospitalized and killed people. It’s 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 multiply and lead to an undesirable infection.
Bacteria, normally present in the digestive tract, makes its way to the urinary tract. This migration typically occurs while cleaning or wiping the remains from a bowel movement, or during sexual intercourse. Bacteria found near the rectum can be inadvertently carried into the urinary tract where it finds its way into the bladder.
Why doesn’t the normal flow of urine from the kidneys through the urethras into the bladder and beyond 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 very 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. The E. coli are literally rinsed away with normal urination!
Mannose is a simple sugar that occurs naturally in fruits such as cranberries and pineapples. The human body metabolizes only small amounts of mannose, while most is excreted unchanged. As mannose is flushed out of the body, it helps maintain a healthy bladder and urinary tract.* Supplementation with mannose should not interfere with blood sugar regulation because very little is converted into glucose
