D-Mannose is a natural occuring simple sugar that appears to be a safe, practical alternative for the treatment for UTI’s caused by E. coli and other bacteria associated with it (Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, Proteus, Klebsiella spp.). D-Mannose is absorbed eight times slower than Glucose, and when ingested, is not converted to Glycogen or stored in the liver, but rather goes directly to to the blood stream. Hence, D-Mannose is mostly filtered trouhg the kidneys and routed to the bladder. The bladder lining is comprised of polysachharide molecules. Finger-like projections on the cell surface of E. coli bacteria adhere to these molecules, initiating an infection. In the presence of D-Mannose, preferentially attach to D-Mannose molecules forming a complex which is expelled with next voiding.
