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 Cherry72 - 29-02-2012
Really impressed by how quickly Natural D-Mannose works. It is so easy to take, and a natural alternative to antibiotics.

At last - something that really works:): Review by Judith - 13-09-2011
Bought this in desperation as I've tried everything to help my frequent attacks of bacterial cystitis. Every self-help remedy known to woman as well as working my way through antibiotics which, one by one, stop working for me. Didn't hold out too much hope for it, but took a maintenance dose for a while (not quite enough for me, it turned out). When I got a full-blown attack, I took the D-Mannose as suggested and to my amazement the symptoms were much improved in a few hours! Continued to take it as instructed for a few days before returning to a slightly higher maintenance dose - thrilled that for the first time I hadn't had to resort to antibiotics. I now take D-Mannose everywhere with me and ensure I always have a good supply. It's not cheap and I really wish the NHS would take it on instead of dishing out increasingly ineffective antibiotics, but until they do, I will continue to sing the praises of this wonderful stuff!
More clinical research is needed as evidence for sceptics - but it has my vote every time!
At last - something that really works:): Review by Hedgecrone - 10-09-2011
I was a bit apprehensive when I ordered this product as I'd tried so many other 'cures' for cystitis. However I decided to road-test it. I took a preventative dose once daily which worked for a while (you have to find out whether one or two daily doses is right for you and I started on the lower dose). After a while I got another infection and then went into 'acute' mode, taking a dose every 2-3 hours the first day and so on as advised. To my utter delight, in a few days the infection was gone - without having to resort to antibiotics! I am now taking two spoonfuls daily as a maintenance dose for a while, but am totally converted and now I make sure I am never without a supply of it, wherever I go. It's not cheap, but when I add up how much I've spent on repeat prescriptions, plus the knowledge that many antibiotics now don't work for me, it's money well spent for peace of mind and knowing I am in control of it at long last. Highly recommended!
A Miracle Powder: Review by Roxy - 31-05-2011
This product is amazing. I had a bad recurrent urinary infection about 6 months ago and that's when I googled for natural remedies for UTI. At that time, the infection last for about 1 week on antibiotics, with such a slow recovery... I bought 5 packets of this (based on the good reviews only) and never regreted as it just works miracles. Everytime I had the slightest symptom I would take 1 or 2 servings and everything is clear. A few days ago I started having severe symptoms and I started panicking and although I took a dose of d-mannose and an hour later drank about 1 litre of water, I still went to see my GP, who confirmed I had an UTI. He prescribed me antibiotics, but, to my amazement, by the time I got home, the symptoms were gone!!! So I didn't even bother collecting my prescription, as I kept taking d-mannose for another 3 days and drank lots of water. I would always have 1-2 packets in my house, as it's soooo good!
nothing to lose!!: Review by fluffy - 22-05-2011
After 7 courses of antibiotics for a persistant uti and a prescription for a further 3 months worth from a urologist ( for low dose therapy) I came across this product whilst scouring the net for a non antibiotic solution to my problem.
I started taking the powder a few times daily whilst on my last full antibiotic course and carried on taking it ( now a week later) so far so good. I will buy more to continue the prevention and if this works I will not be taking the prescription of antibiotics given to me. My urine cultures have rarely shown any bacterial growths anyway although I can get white blood cells with a test stick-since taking d mannose I have had no white cells. If you are in doubt just try it you ve nothing to lose!

D-Mannose better than anti-biotics: Review by RitaViolet - 16-02-2011
I had cystitis 3 times last year and each time my doctor prescribed anti-biotics. I was then pleased to hear about D-Mannose, a natural remedy and gave it a try after I developed my last attack. I was very pleased with how quickly I obtained some relief (less than 24 hours) and even more pleased when it even cured my problems. I have been singing its praises to my friends ever since. I think it is much preferable to the population taking so many anti-biotics.
