Chances are that you might develop an infection and most of these infections are either excruciatingly painful or keeps constantly recurring. UTI’s make the process of urinating painful, giving you the urge to pee again and again. The process of battling such infection with over the counter medicines is common. However, most of these medicines can only temporarily clear out the accumulated bacteria in the bladder lining. It is the leftover residual bacteria that reaction time and again and causes the infection to recur.

Every good medicinal formula not only helps in curing a current disease but also prevents it from further happening. It’s a must-have trait of every good medicinal formula. Now D Mannose is a remarkable urinary health formula that uses glucose to prevent urinary tract infections. D mannose is a derivative of glucose and prevents infections by stopping bacteria from sticking to the walls of the track. Consider the urinary tract to be a ladder; if a person fails to latch onto the steps, there are minimum chances of causing any damage to the walls.
What is Now D mannose?
D Mannose is a natural sugar that occurs in our body and helps cleanse the urinary tract by maintaining a resilient bladder lining. The excess is flushed through the urine, and is metabolized is small contents creating zero obstruction in healthy blood sugar regulations. According to studies conducted this substance helps promote healthy urinary tract functions and maintains a healthier bladder lining.
Bacterial infections are tough to cure, the foremost reason being once it sticks to the walls of the bladder the infection keeps recurring. This always increases the reliability of antibiotics which often cause various side effects. Other than disturbed appetite, consuming antibiotics for a prolonged period can also cause sleep disturbances. Although antibiotics are considered to be the most effective remedy for treating internal infections, it can cause a serious effect on the immune system of the body. Now D mannose improves the quality of life and health by preventing recurring bacterial infections and by reduced reliability on antibiotics.
Why should you take D mannose?
A natural solution to bodily and health problems are always a better option than sticking to chemically treated solutions. D mannose is a type of glucose found in certain fruits including apples and cranberries. D mannose is found in all kinds of cranberry products including juice, however, it is separated from the harmful sugar contents and only the good glucose is extracted for formulating this urinary tract care formula. Why is it important to separate the sugar? It is a known fact that consuming sugar during a bladder infection will simply trigger the bacteria and cause more harmful effects. Now D mannose extracts the sugar compounds from cranberry residues, and only uses the good glucose content for treating bacterial bladder infections.
The most important ingredient used to formulate Now D mannose is the substance derived from certain fruits called D mannose. This is a type of glucose found in certain fruits like apples and most abundantly in cranberries. Another beneficial component used in formulating this product is the extract from cranberries called proanthocyanidins. This is a type of antioxidant derived from cranberries, grape seeds and pine barks and is used in the product in a highly concentrated amount. Proanthocyanidins are the substance that reduces the bacteria’s adherence powers and prevents it from latching onto the urinary tract walls.

When do you develop UTI?
UTI has become a common problem amongst adults; in fact, 70% of America has been a victim of bladder-related infections. The rate of UTI is constantly elevating, and women are more prone to develop this recurring infection than men. Some of the common symptoms of UTI include increased burning sensation, urgency and frequency. Men often face lesser reactions than women, sometimes men may even fail to realize that they have developed a bacterial infection. Although the reactions differ amongst men and women, the damage caused by UTI is the same for both. Women going through menopause are more likely to develop this infection due to the reduced estrogen causing thinning of urethra and balder. The thinning of bladder always makes it more prone to developing conditions such as UTI.
