D-Mannose Powder - 3 oz.
Women of every age can support healthy urinary function by supplementing with this all natural, simple sugar derived from the cranberry. The urinary track acts like a magnet to bacteria. As urine is excreted, bacterial lectins take the liberty of adhering to the bladder?s inner lining. D-Mannose attaches itself to these harmful bacteria, allowing them to be easily washed away during urination. And because of its unique molecular structure, only tiny amounts of D-mannose are processes by the body as sugar, while most are cleansed as they pass. 100% natural and completely safe to take, HealthGenesis D-Mannose Powder is an effortless way to achieve sound urinary health.*
Studies suggest that Mannose may maintain and support a healthy urinary tract by blocking the adhesion of disease causing organisms like E. coli to the surface of the host tissue. In most cases pathogenic bacteria that cause urinary tract infections do so by utilizing tiny hair-like projections on their surface called fimbrium. Protruding from the tips of these fimbrium are glycoproteins called lectins. Its these lectins that bind to certain sugar components like Mannose that are present on the surface tissues that line the urinary tract thereby initiating the bacterial infection process. When sufficient Mannose is consumed the excess molecules of this sugar present in the resident urine act as a sacrificial bodyguards that attach themselves to the lectins thereby blocking the disease causing E. coli from adhering to the tissues of the bladder and subsequent colonization. The Mannose bound E. coli bacteria are subsequently flushed away by the urine through the urinary tract and down the porcelain drain.*
