About D-Mannose

Biosphere Urinary Tract Support utilises the benefits of cranberry in a concentrated and potent way in the form of D-mannose. We have naturally flavoured a strong dose of D-mannose in each sachet that tastes great and mixes with water.

D-Mannose is a naturally occurring sugar found in cranberries that has been shown to prevent and reduce the severity of urinary tract infections.1 It is the active ingredient in cranberries, without the sugar. D-mannose works by inhibiting bacteria from lining the walls of the urinary tract. If the bacteria can’t latch onto the urethra or bladder, it is less likely to cause an infection.

Approximately 85-90% of urinary tract infections are caused by the bacteria E.coli.2 D-mannose is only effective in treating these UTIs caused by E.Coli.

Benefits of
D-Mannose

Prevent and Treat Urinary Tract Infections

D-mannose is a great antibiotic alternative for early stages of a UTI and for UTI prevention.3 Reduced use of antibiotics lessens the possibility of resistant strains in future use when it may be extremely important. Using antibiotics against bladder infections frequently could also lead to more resistant E.coli, thrush, and long term antibiotic-related complications.4

“The problem is that bacteria are immensely adaptable critters. Expose them to antibiotics long enough and they’ll evolve ways to survive the drugs.”
Abigail A. Salyers

If the urinary tract infection has made its way into the kidneys, antibiotics are the go-to treatment. For serve bladder infections, again antibiotics would be the first call of treatment.

Although a course of antibiotics is often prescribed for the treatment of UTIs as a way of killing the unwanted bacteria in the urinary tract, it should only be used as a last resort, as these antibiotics will also kill the ‘friendly’ bacteria in the gut, causing digestive issues and yeast infections.

Using a treatment such as D-mannose, which can be used just as effectively as antibiotics, without any of the side effects, is a long-term solution which won’t comprise other areas of your health.

Antibiotic alternative

D-mannose has amazing benefits for urinary tract health. Primarily, its ability to help prevent and treat urinary tract infections by inhibiting bacteria from adhering to the wall of the urinary tract. By not allowing bacteria, in most cases, E.coli to stick to the wall of the urinary tract, it is must harder for infections to occur as the bacteria gets washed out with urine.5

A study in 2014 with over 300 women that suffered from recurrent urinary tract infections showed that D-mannose was not only effective at treating UTIs but it was more effective than Nitrofurantoin, a common bladder antibiotic. Only 15 percent of those taking D-mannose had a recurrent UTI, compared to 20 percent for the antibiotic group, which were both far lower than the non-treatment group at 61% suffering from a UTI. D-mannose not only reduced the chance of getting a UTI but it did so without all the side effects that come with antibiotics.6

Doesn’t contain the sugar of Cranberry Juice

D-mannose is a natural sugar found in cranberries, but unlike most sugars it is not very well metabolised making safe for diabetics with very little to no impact on blood sugar levels.

Drinking cranberry juice for D-mannose is not worth the large amount of sugar consumed for a small amount of D-mannose. cranberry juice is high in sugar, which adds stress to your immune system and can fuel the growth of pathogenic bacteria in your gut.

Pure D-mannose in the UTI Support is about 10-50 times stronger than cranberry, non-toxic and completely safe.

How D-mannose works

D-mannose has been proved to fight against urinary tract infect ions caused by the bacteria, E. Coli. Unfortunately for the E. coli, D-mannose sticks to E. coli fingers even better than E. coli 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 then rinsed away with normal urination.

Avoiding a Urinary Tract Infection

  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day. This will dilute your urine and increase the frequency the bladder is cleared out.
  • Never resist the urge to urinate as this process helps flush out bacteria before they can cause any ham.
  • Females should always wipe back to front to avoid the spread of E.coli.
  • Shower rather than bath.
  • Cleanse prior to and after sexual intercourse.

Urinary Tract Infection causes

How a UTI begins

Normal urine is sterile, but when bacteria get into the urine an infection can occur. A typical urinary tract infection will usually start at the opening of the urethra where the urine leaves the body. This opening is the most likely place bacteria may enter the urinary tract. Once inside the urinary tract, the bacteria can make it’s way up into the bladder and a UTI starts.

The Bacteria

The most common way the bacteria make their way from around the anus to the urethra is from sexual intercourse or incorrect wiping.
Menopause and birth control diaphragms have also shown to increase the chance of a urinary tract infection.
Females have shorter urethra’s, making them more prone to UTIs.

The Cause

The bacteria can travel up the urethra into the bladder where they can grow and cause a painful infection. If one does not take action early or has a compromised immune system, the infection can spread further up the urinary tract into the kidneys.
Urinating, or emptying the bladder regularly can flush the bacteria out of the urethra before it makes it’s way into the bladder and causes any damage.

Development of the Infection

The bacteria can travel up the urethra into the bladder where they can grow and cause a painful infection. If one does not take action early or has a compromised immune system, the infection can spread further up the urinary tract into the kidneys.
Urinating, or emptying the bladder regularly can flush the bacteria out of the urethra before it makes it’s way into the bladder and causes any damage.

Worst case scenario

The worst case scenario happens when the bacteria make it from the bladder to the kidneys which can cause a kidney infection, at which point you will want to seek immediate medical treatment. In this situation, antibiotics would most likely be required and potentially hospitalisation.

High-risk group

Some people with medical conditions such as a spinal cord injury may not be able to empty their bladder properly and become more susceptible to urinary tract infections.
People with suppressed immune systems and those with blockages in the urinary tract such as kidney stones or an enlarged prostate.
Pregnant women, sexually active women and those experiencing reduced estrogen levels after menopause are at higher risk.
