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.

Couldn't live without D-Mannose: Review by Lisa - 12-03-2008
This stuff is a miracle. I suffered from bladder infections/cystitis about once a week - sometimes more frequently. The gallons of water/cranberry juice stopped working after a while and I was continuously going to the doctor and getting antibiotics which messed up my natural balance even further and it always took me a while to get back on track. I tried D-mannose about 4 months ago and have not had to go to the doctor for a bladder infection/bout of cystitis ever since - as whenever the symptoms start to occur, I take the powder for a couple of days every few hours and it goes completely. Couldn't live without this stuff to be honest.

D-mannose so much better than drugs: Review by Carol Ann - 18-10-2007
I tried D-Mannose for the first time in 2005 after having a few bouts of cystitis and getting antibiotics on prescription, but it came back.
I did all the things you are supposed to do, example drinking lots of water, I hate water, but persevered.
I remember looking on the net to see if there was other ways to treat it, and came across this company, I read all the information on the product, and it sounded as though it could be the answer, although I was nervous because at the time it cost more, and I had not bought of the net before, I purchased 50gs
It arrived the next day, and within two hours of my first dose I felt better, and at the end of the day had gone, although I carried on with the instructions, it cleared it up, and it was great.
This is my first attack since, and I now have my D-Mannose, so much better than drugs, and its natural, so thank you for enlightening me in the first instance, and knowing there are other ways than man made drugs
Mannose have given me back my life: Review by Kathleen - 23-09-2007
I have been returning to your site for about 18 months now. Mannose has given me back my life! I know this sounds dramatic but it's true. I was locked into a cycle with Interstitial Cystitis, now it hardly bothers me.
I now take it very occasionally. What a wonderful product.
My 17 year old daughter uses it as well: Review by Karen - 20-09-2007
I received my first delivery of D Mannose on Tuesday morning. Feeling very unwell I took it for two days and all symptoms have gone. My 17 your old daughter has also used it and found it works without the horrible side effects of anti-biotics!
This is my second order: Review by teresa - 03-09-2007
This is my second order for this product and I have to say if it wasn't working for me then I wouldn't be returning to make further larger purchases. It has brought great relief to a long term bladder problem that has baffled other doctors.

My 80 year old father started using D-Mannose last week for a reoccurring bladder infection which antibiotics don't seem to be shifting, seems to be working and going to order some more. Will keep in touch.
