How much do we know about what causes Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) and how to effectively treat them? Fortunately, quite a bit!
Cystitis or urinary tract infection is an inflammation of the bladder often caused by bacteria. In 75% to 90% of cases, Escherichia Coli (E. Coli) is the culprit. Once in the bladder, this bacteria attaches to the D-Mannose present in the bladder wall and thus creates cystitis. D-Mannose is a sugar naturally present in the body, which the body produces in small doses. However, in order to help prevent a UTI from throwing us off our game (think: burning sensation when urinating, pelvic pain, and fatigue), there is a simple solution that women (and men) can add into their daily routines in just 20 seconds a day.
When the D-Mannose powder supplement is added to a glass of water its unique “activation mode” fills the bladder with molecules which bind to the bacteria, eliminating them naturally in the urine.
Clinical trials have also shown that D-Mannose is as effective as antibiotics with fewer side effects when treating E-Coli based UTIs.
D-Mannose is does not enter the bloodstream and therefore does not pose a risk to those who are pregnant, have diabetes or to those with dietary intolerances such as lactose or gluten.
This natural supplement is also safe for elderly Moms who are even more at risk of urinary infections due to a weakened immune system.
And don’t forget the kids: summertime swimming not only causes ear infections, but UTIs too!
A treatment plan can generally follow this regime, which takes less time than it does to brew a coffee!
Relief of active infection symptoms: 1 scoop every 2-3 hours for 2 days
Prevention of infections: 1 scoop per day
With all other health concerns, we must worry about these days, it’s comforting to know there are easy solutions to bothersome infections and discomfort that can strike at any time!
