Physiological action: Natural food supplement that contributes to normal and healthy urinary system
Mechanism of action: The product contains D-mannose, a simple sugar (monosacharide-hexose) of natural origin which is found abundant in various fruits, such as cranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon).
Only very small amounts of D-mannose are metabolized by the human body (thus causing no interference with blood sugar regulation) which results in the majority of D-mannose to be filtered through the kidneys and routed to the bladder, then rapidly excreted in the urine, where it serves its important role for the support and maintenance of a healthy urinary system, prior to its exit from the human body.
Many studies indicate the role of D-mannose in the support and maintenance of a healthy urinary system by inhibiting the binding of E. coli bacteria to the surface of the epithelial mucosal lining of the urinary tract, with the following proposed mechanism of action: The “cell walls” of each E. coli are covered with tiny fingerlike projections, composed of amino acid-sugar complexes, called “lectins”. E. coli lectins have the capability of “sticking” to the inside walls of our bladder and urinary tract, so pathogenic E. coli can’t be rinsed out by urination.
The presence of D-mannose in the urinary tract helps in the blockade of the E. coli attachment sites (meaning lectins), thus resulting in no binding of E. coli to the lining of urinary tract but excreting E. coli in the urine. In reality, D-mannose does not kill E. coli bacteria which are responsible for causing urinary tract infections (UTI's) but simply removes them out of the body through the urine.
D-mannose appears to be almost 10 times more effective in removing E. coli from the lining of urinary tract, when compared to the effect of equal quantity of cranberry fruit powder. Ninety percent of the time, UTI's caused by E. coli will respond to D-Mannose treatment with significant symptom reduction within 24-48 hours from first intake. It is worth mentioning that D-mannose intake is a natural way to treat UTI's, without using antibiotics, thus guarantying for the absence of any future antibiotic resistance or fungal or gastrointestinal infections which could potentially emerge, thus protecting our body.
The product is considered to be the ideal solution for supporting conditions of cystitis and, in general, urinary tract infections due to E. coli. Specifically, the use of this product becomes necessary in treating:
honeymoon syndrome (also known as honeymoon cystitis)
urinary tract infection due to urinary catheterization or cystoscopy procedure
