D-Mannose Supplement for ‘Urinary Tract Support’
From West Cost Mint
We rarely think of a simple sugar as a protective agent. However, studies are showing that D-Mannose increases healthy bacteria in the gut and improves bladder health, without a negative effect on blood sugar levels. D-mannose is a simple sugar that is related to glucose and acts as an anti-infection agent that blocks the bad bacteria (especially E.coli) from sticking to cells and then flushes them from the body.
The beauty of D-mannose is that it offers a surface for bad bacteria such as E.coli to bind to, keeping it away from the urinary tract and bladder walls, and then they are disposed of during urination. Additionally, D-mannose is classified as a prebiotic because it stimulates the growth of good bacteria in the gut.
D-mannose is a naturally occurring element found in cranberries (don’t worry it won’t bother those with interstitial cystitis). It is believed to have a microbial resistance to antibiotics, which is important because antibiotics are a major disruptor of good gut balance. In this situation, D-mannose can be an effective agent in preventing recurrent UTI’s. Furthermore, a study that was published in Cell & Bioscience ended the report by indicating that D-mannose is considered as a “healthy or good” monosaccharide that can act as a safe dietary supplement to assist in promoting immune tolerance and in preventing some diseases that are autoimmune associated.
