Most urinary tract infections are caused by E. coli bacteria. This supplement contains D-mannose and cranberry which research has demonstrated prevent adhesion and replication of bacteria.
- This product provides on average 1861mg of D-mannose and 100mg of cranberry powder per rounded teaspoon
- 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. Thus, it does not interfere with blood sugar regulation because it is non-glycaemic in humans
- Cranberry has a similar action to D-mannose and cranberry juice has a long history of use, however cranberry juice is high in sugar
