What is D-Mannose?
Natural D-Mannose is totally safe to take and has no known side-effects. D-Mannose is a naturally occurring simple sugar, closely related (in chemical terms) to glucose and is found in small quantities in some fruits, such as cranberries. Although small amounts of D-Mannose are made by our bodies; if we consume large amounts, it is promptly excreted into the urine, which is the reason why taking D-Mannose helps heal and maintain a healthy bladder.
Why take Natural D-Mannose?
As a glyconutrient, D-Mannose has many health benefits, but its ability to help maintain a healthy bladder and kidneys is the property most researched. Unfortunately, we are not legally allowed to inform you of these benefits as this would be construed as 'making claims', so we suggest you investigate D-Mannose yourself on the internet as there is much valuable information to be found.
See this Healthy Pages Article which explains how D-Mannose offers cystitis relief.
D-Mannose is a harmless natural sugar, safe for anyone (male or female) as well as small children and pregnant women. Since it is absorbed in the upper part of the gastrointestinal tract and never reaches the intestines, it doesn't disrupt the normal bacterial growth in that area. Also due to the speed at which it is excreted in the urine, it can be safely taken by diabetics.
Natural D-Mannose vs. Synthetic
Up until a few years ago, D-Mannose could ONLY be made synthetically in a laboratory, as no method for readily producing Natural D-Mannose was available. That process was finally discovered and mastered. We now import Natural D-Mannose into the U.K. Why is Natural better than Synthetic? We use a simple analogy as an answer. Nature is generally 'pretty perfect' and our bodies often respond better to just natural substances. Our product is simply pure D-Mannose with no fillers, additives or preservatives and is of the highest quality. The body knows what is natural, so give it the best chance to do what it does best. If you find 'cheap' mannose it may well be synthetic and you can taste the difference - it will generally be slightly bitter instead of sweet after taste.
How To Use Natural D-Mannose?
While D-Mannose is safe for long-term use, it does not necessarily need to be taken for long periods of time. Take one teaspoon every couple of hours until relief from bladder infection is felt, then drop down to a couple of teaspoons per day until you feel back to normal. It can then be taken at a lower dose as a preventative or simply periodically, as and when you feel you need it. The normal dosage is a level teaspoon (approx. 2 grams) at a time.
D-Mannose is available as a powder and being a sugar it has a mild, sweet, inoffensive taste. It can be mixed with juice or milk or tea but is most rapidly absorbed when taken with water. Ensure enough liquid is taken that it is absorbed but not so much that it is too diluted. This is normally around ½ pint.
Each 50 gram supply of Natural D-Mannose comes in a food grade grip seal bag which closes easily for optimum storage.
Probiotic supplements following antibiotic treatment for cystitis
If this is not the first time you've had cystitis, then you may well have taken one or many courses of antibiotics. As you are probably aware, although they do help kill off the bacteria causing the infection, they also drastically reduce your numbers of beneficial or friendly bacteria that live in your gut, vagina and respiratory tract. The loss of these unfortunately leave you more susceptible to future bladder infections, and can lead to digestive problems. To help combat this problem, it is ideal to replace the beneficial bacteria with a probiotic supplement. See here for more info.

Amazing!!: Review by Lorraine - 08-08-2015
I suffered from cystitis on a regular basis since I was 18, antibiotics rarely cleared it for 15 years until I found this website and as a result I have never had a bout in the last 5 years since taking d mannose it is amazing stuff and I'm so glad I found it! I spoke to my doctor when I discovered it and she had not even heard of it, I think they should be prescribing this instead of random amounts of useless antibiotics
Life saver: Review by Caroline - 18-11-2014
I had chronically debilitating bladder problems that manifested itself with recurrent UTIs. I was almost bed bound for 6 months while doctors did lots of tests. In the end, and in desperation, I started to research options on line and found D-Mannose on a web group. I never looked back.
Interestingly, I tried many things (nettle tea, acupuncture even faith healing) but this was the one that continues with me. After a surgical procedure I mentioned D0Mannose to my urinary specialist who had not heard of it. Next time I had a check up he had put details on his website.
Best product, cheapest value on the market!: Review by cillista - 17-06-2014
I've been taking D-Mannose for roughly 8 years now. There was a time when i was on antibiotics constantly, as it was discovered after reoccurring UTIs that came increasingly closer and closer together, I had in fact become (through inherited genes) borderline diabetic as an early 20 something. After forming an immunity to the antibiotics, going in and out of emergency rooms, and giving up on conventional medicine, I did my research and discovered D-Mannose. I went to a local food health store and the lovely store owner could tell what I must secretly have and came and spoke to me. His wife and daughter had similar problems and he highly recommended it, along with pure un-concentrated cranberry juice. Unfortunately when I moved to the UK, pure cranberry juice doesn't exist here, and the first D-Mannose I bought was synthetic, which I didn't realise at the time. I promptly ended up with an awful UTI, I did a bit more research and found this website. Obviously I discovered from the information here what synthetic smells and tastes like, and learned from experience that it doesn't always work. I have been ordering my D-Mannose from here ever since and the consistent quality and price tag are unbeatable. I'll be a loyal customer for years to come and always recommend it to my other female friends too! If you've never tried it, do! It's definitely one of those miracle all-natural remedies.
No good for me: Review by Sally - 02-11-2013
This product did not help my symptoms at all!
Excellent product!: Review by Peter - 18-08-2012
I can strongly recommend this treatment. I was unsure whether it would work, but after a couple of days the symptoms subsided and then departed. I am delighted and am ordering another pack for emergencies!
Excellent product and excellent service: Review by MikeP - 08-08-2012
This was our first use of both the company and the product and were very impressed with both the product and the high level of service. thank you
So glad I found out about D-mannose: Review by Rosalind - 07-07-2012
I never suffered from cystitis until I reached the menopause, when I suddenly started suffering from really bad infections at least once a month. My Doctor prescribed antibiotics, and basically told me it was something that could happen to women "of a certain age" and I would just have to put up with it. But I hated taking the antibiotics because they made me feel nauseous and I've never felt comfortable taking too much medication. I discovered D-Mannose by chance when doing a Google search on natural remedies, and decided I had nothing to lose so I would try it. This was 5 months ago, and sInce then I can honestly say I have not suffered another cystitis attack, whereas previously I had at least one a month. I am so glad I found D-Mannose. It is really great.
Amazing D-Mannose: Review by Queen Elizabeth 1st - 02-04-2012
As soon as I realised I had yet again another water infection I started to take D-Mannose by the next day I had greatly improved. I am now taking it together with anti-biotics prescribed by my doctor. I have been told that the e-colie present in my bladder has become resistant to different anti-biotics I have been taking so I am hoping that this combination will prove to be successful.
Helped by D-Mannose: Review by Queen Elizabeth 1st - 02-04-2012
Took D-Mannose as soon as I realised i had another water infection, by the next day I was greatly improved. I went to the doctor's and she confirmed i did in fact have a water infection and once again I am on anti-biotics but this time I am taking them together with D-Manose. I have been informed by my doctor that the E-Coli in my bladder has become resistant to a range of anti-biotics I have taken in the past so I am hoping that this combination will work.
D-Mannose Powder - Amazing!: Review by Jackie - 13-03-2012
Having suffered from cystitis over many years, the only relief was anti-biotics which, after the lab test result came back and the precription was issued by the doctor, would take about 2 days to work. I have now discovered D-Mannose which relieves the nightmare symptoms within an hour. I keep the powder with me at all times and it really has changed my life!
