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.

3rd pack of d-mannose: Review by deborah - 07-12-2008
I have just ordered my 3rd pack of d-mannose, it is a good product, and has helped me with my interstitial cystitis. I have had this problem for many years and have been on too many antibioctics. I would recommend this product.
Lessens the pain: Review by Yoshiko - 08-11-2008
I started using this 'cause I've been suffering from a bladder infection for months and months. This year I've been through 5 anti-biotic courses and in the middle of one of them it even came back. So I knew something was wrong. I found this and I've been through one bag so far and it hasn't helped completely but it does lessen the pain by alot. I have seen alot of personal experiences though and for some people it seems to help alot. So it's worth trying.
Ordering more for maintenance: Review by Vivien - 07-11-2008
I have had Uti's every 6 weeks for 2 years have had numerous antibiotics but it always comes back. I took D-Mannose at the start of my last infection 4 weeks ago and have not needed antibiotics so far. I am now ordering some more to keep on a maintenance dose.
Ordered D-Mannose out of despair: Review by Jayne - 09-10-2008
I have suffered on and off with cystitis all my adult life but when the over the counter relief sachets just didn't clear the problem, and countless cranberry tablets and juice didn't seem to be getting rid of it either I would go to the doctor in agony. Sometimes they would give me antibiotics and sometimes urine tests would show that there was no infection, but the symptoms were the same, the agonising need to go to the loo and the sharp pains whilst doing so.
I must say it was out of despair that I tried Natural D-Mannose for the first time about two months ago. After about an hour I got relief from the pain and within a few hours I was able to go to the toilet without much pain at all. I took it for 3 days just to be sure that the symptoms had gone.
Unfortunately I now have another bout of cystitis but I have enough left over from last time to see me through this bout and relief is being obtained straight away this time, which means I can function normally! But i am ordering more to have in for the future.
It takes the edge of the symptoms: Review by Gaby - 25-07-2008
It certainly takes the edge off the symptoms. I always have some in reserve now. How nice to finally find something that actually works, is easy to get hold of and gets here quickly.
Water sample clear after taking D-Mannose: Review by diane - 12-07-2008
Just had a holiday in Tuscany, on my first day I had cystitus, having taken the Natural D-Mannose with me as a standby, because I am a frequent sufferer of cystitus and have adverse reactions to many antibiotics. I took it as directed, over several days, although I felt a little uncomfortable, I was able to go out and about every day. By the end of the fourth day I felt it had gone so discontinued D-Mannose, on returning to the UK I took a water sample in to be tested and it was clear. So I will certainly be stocking up with Natural D-Mannose from now on.
I would certainly recommend it: Review by Leonie - 22-06-2008
This product although not entirely ridding me of cystitis attacks it has helped significantly to lessen the number of bouts I suffer from. I would certainly recommend it.
I am definitely buying some more: Review by Fiona - 04-06-2008
I suffer from ongoing cystitis for the past few months, and I've found that D-Mannose really helps to relieve the symptoms, I'm definitely buying some more!
Coming back to buy more: Review by jean - 10-05-2008
Heard about Natural D-Mannose in one of my magazines and thought I'd give it a try. I've found that it really helps my cystitis and now I'm coming back to buy more!
