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.

It works!: Review by Mick - 02-09-2010
My husband suffered urinary infections for several months and had seven different antibiotics, none of which completed the job. After seeing D-Mannose on my computer, I ordered some. Within 24 hours he had relief from the burning sensation. After mixing this with Cranberry juice to give a "double whammy" he has improved dramatically and is now taking one spoonful per day to maintain the effect.
Yes, IT WORKS.
D-MANNOSE: Review by SKYDANCER - 20-07-2010
Brilliant natural alternative to anti-biotics for pregnant women suffering with recurring bladder infections. Acts quickly and is totally safe! A lifesaver for sure.
Great Product : Review by Alison - 13-07-2010
I have had recurrent cystitis for years. I have tried all the over the counter products to relieve the symptoms, but they were very little help and I would suffer days of discomfort until the doctor sent away urine samples and would finally prescribe antibiotics. After so many reoccurances a consultant eventually put me on long term, low level antibiotics, but as soon as I came off them, the bouts of cystitis returned.
My mother read a report about this product and ordered some for me to try.
To be honest I was sceptical, but when I got the next bout of cystitis I tried this product out of desperation. Within half an hour the symptoms had subsided. Within a few hours I had no symptoms at all. I continued to use the product for a couple of days to ensure the symptoms didn't return.
Now I always keep some of this product in the cupboard. As soon as I feel the symptoms come on I take some of this product. It always works. This really is a hidden gem of a product.
Amazing relief: Review by Louise - 02-04-2010
Usually by the time I have got an appointment to see the doctor I cannot go anywhere without being ruled by my bladder. After taking D-Mannose I have not needed to see the doctor for antibiotics. Great to be able to treat yourself as soon as symptoms start, great product.
Recommended to my dad.: Review by Matisse - 25-10-2009
I have had UTI's on and off for years. The constant need to urinate all the time and the accompanying pain have led me to the point of distraction. I tried D-Mannose as a last resort, having exhausted every medical avenue. Not only have I had relief for the first time in years but I've recommended it to my dad, who also has urinary problems. Such a simple, natural remedy and hopefully no more pumping myself full of anti-biotics. Definitely worth buying.
Suffered infection for five years: Review by Anita - 03-08-2009
I am just about to finish my first packet of d-mannose. I feel it's going to turn my life around. I have been almost house bound suffering with bladder infections for the past five years, after seeing doctors, visits to hospitals I thought that I would have to live with this for the rest of my life, they could not give me any answers or contiue to treat me. I have tried everything you could imagine and nothing worked. I then came across d-mannose I made my mind up at that point that if this didn't work I would give up, live with it and suffer. But here I am now ordering my second packet of d-mannose something is working. Thank you so much for giving me my life back.
Works for me: Review by Mjean - 19-07-2009
I have suffered from cystitis off and on for a long time. It goes away then comes back again and is difficult to get rid of. I have tried all the specialists, the urologists, gynocologists and it still comes back. This product was tried by me at a time when a really was quite low with no end in sight and it has helped clear the problem. Although I would always now keep the product in the house and use once a day I feel that I have control of my life back and would recommend it to fellow sufferers.
D Mannose changed my life: Review by Lynda - 08-03-2009
I have suffered from recurring bouts of cystitis for all of my adult life: I am 60 this year. Antibiotics were a short term solution but the symptoms returned very quickly, so most of the time I had to do my best to keep it at bay with cranberry juice and lots of water. After a google search I bought a pack of your d-mannose which was delivered the next day, and after 4 days of taking 3 to 4 teaspoons of it each day, my cystitis was gone; completely. This stuff really works, it has changed my life. I now take a spoonful once a day (just in case) and I feel great. Thank you.
Highly recommend this product: Review by jan - 04-02-2009
I had been taking antibiotics for two and a half years, every time I tried to stop I would only last 2 weeks before another infection. I was diagnosed with Interstitial cystitis as well. A friend recommended D-Mannose and I have been fee from antibiotics and with no bladder irritation for 6 months now. I highly recommend this product as it has help me live a normal life again.
This stuff has changed my life!: Review by Hedvig - 19-12-2008
This stuff has changed my life!
I've given it to friends too (I very rarely get infections now and if i feel any symptoms i just take a teaspoon and a few hours later I'm fine again) and they've all had the same result.
All the antibiotics ruined my digestive tract but thanks to this I'm healthy again!
