What is D-Mannose?D-Mannose is found in fruits such as apples, peaches and cranberries. It has also been used for a long time in as a tonic to support a healthy urinary tract as well as a healthy bladder and digestive aid. Both men and women are prone to urinary tract infections. *
How Could D-Mannose Support My Health?D-Mannose is a stronghold on its own when it comes to the many benefits it offers. We will introduce you to these benefits and the reasoning behind consuming the D-Mannose Powder.
Urinary Tract Health. D-Mannose powder is known for its ability to support a healthy urinary tract (UTI) . A series of experiments and research have been conducted to support this. In 2014, a study was conducted on 308 women with various UTIs. They were divided into 3 groups. For 6 months, one group was treated with 2 g of D-Mannose on a daily basis. Another group was given a prescription drug to take and the third group was not treated at all. After 6 months had elapsed, it was discovered that only 14% of the women who had been on D-Mannose had suffered a recurrence of UTIs. In the prescription group, 20% experienced a recurrence and 60% of those who got no treatment at all experienced a recurrence. The conclusion of the study was that this supplement had the ability to support a health urinary tract . *
A majority of UTIs are caused by Escherichia coli (E.coli) . This is a harmless bacteria found in our intestinal tract. However, problems arise when it becomes plentiful in other areas, such as the urinary tract. When the bacteria gets into the urinary tract, it multiplies and leads to symptoms such as a burning sensation when urinating, frequent urges to urinate, lower abdominal pain, blood in the urine and cloudy urine . These symptoms will not always occur at once. The cell walls of the bacteria are covered with tiny projections that are referred to as fimbria. The projections are an adaptive factor that helps the bacteria attach to the inner walls of the bladder . With these projections, they can work their way up your bladder to the ureter and kidneys, causing irreversible damage. The projections on the bacteria are comprised of an amino acid-sugar complex (lectin). This causes them to stick and you will not be able to get rid of them through urination.
It is a good choice to try out D-Mannose to support a healthy urinary tract. *
- Bladder Health. In addition to supporting a healthy urinary tract, a study has also shown that overall bladder health could be improved immensely with the consumption of D-Mannose . *
Digestive Health. D-Mannose has the ability to improve the health of our digestive tract. It may support the digestive tract especially when health complications arise. A study in 2014 analyzed the relationship between glyconutrients and illnesses in patients suffering from duodenal ulcers and gastric cancer. Patients suffering from gastric cancer were found to have reduced levels of mannose glycans . This was similar to the patients with duodenal ulcers. *
Evidence from in vitro and animal studies also shows that D-Mannose plays a great role in fighting against the effects of lectins . Lectins are a type of protein found in certain legumes and vegetables. Most of the foods we currently consume have this protein. The worst part is that the protein does not degrade in our stomach acid and digesting them is an extremely difficult task. To curb the accumulation of lectins, D-Mannose acts as a decoy molecule for the protein . It is then able to bind to the compounds that would normally bind to the mannose sugar of our body cells. This mechanism protects our body cells from lectin-related reactions. *
Suggested Usage / Dosage
The recommended dosage of D-Mannose varies from person to person due to individual reasons for taking it. However, we recommend a dosage of 1,500 mg per day for general bladder health or 500 mg every 3 hours for urinary tract health. *
