When a strong frequent urge to ‘go’ is accompanied by burning and painful urination, you’re probably suffering from UTI, an infection caused by E.coli bacteria that, if left untreated, causes symptoms such as back pain, chills, fever, nausea, and vomiting. Conventional antibiotic treatments may clear up the infection, but they also kill the good bacteria in your body, which can be detrimental to your health over the long term. Now available in South Africa, DMannose is a pleasant tasting soluble powder that works quickly and prophelactically to stop UTI in its tracks by flushing the E.coli bacteria from your system. thus ensuring that the infection won’t recur.
DMannose has been used in Europe, America and the rest of the world for years and years. It’s simple to use and provides relief within hours. Best of all is that DMannose is 100% natural and can even be used by pregnant women and children.
DMannose is a natural product that provides safe, fast and effective relief from the painful and often recurring symptoms of Bladder and Urinary Tract Infections.Derived from corn, white and sweet potatoes, beech or birch wood, DMannose is a six-carbon sugar that occurs naturally in many plants, fungi, and fruit, including cranberry, which are known for their infection fighting properties.
WHO CAN TAKE DMANNOSE?
- DMannose can be safely used at all times by children, pregnant women and diabetics**.
- See Dosage and directions for use.
- ** Because DMannose is a simple sugar it is processed very quickly in the digestive system. Consequently, the pancreas does not detect it as a sugar that requires insulin in order to be absorbed into the blood stream. It should not affect blood sugar levels, but it is advisable to continue monitoring glucose levels in the blood, just to be safe.
DOSAGE AND DIRECTIONS FOR USE
The recommended dosage for an on-going infection is one teaspoon (1/2 for children) of DMannose dissolved in water or juice every two to three hours, continued for three days. The curative effects of DMannose are usually felt within 24 hours, but if no change is experienced within 72 hours, it’s advisable to consult a doctor, as the infection may be caused by bacteria other than E.Coli.
DMannose may also be used as preventative measure by those suffering from recurring infections. The maintenance dose varies per person, but a good starting point is one teaspoon a day mixed with liquid.
Women suffering from honeymoon cystitis (bladder infections linked to sexual intercourse) may take one teaspoon of DMannose an hour before intercourse, and another immediately after to help prevent infection.
Do not take DMannose with any drink that contains sugar, as this may aggravate the symptoms.
HOW DOES DMANNOSE WORK?
When someone with UTI consumes a dose of DMannose, the sugar is absorbed in the upper gastrointestinal tract, but at a much slower rate than most other sugars. Additionally, unlike other sugars, DMannose is not readily converted to glycogen (and stored) in the liver, but passes directly into the bloodstream largely unchanged.
DMannose does not kill any bacteria – friendly or unfriendly. Instead, it acts as a kind of magnet in the urinary tract, adhering itself to undesirable foreign substances such as E.coli bacteria and preventing them from attaching to the lining of the bladder.
As the DMannose-laden blood passes through the kidneys, a considerable proportion of the sugar is extracted and added to the urine. The DMannose-sweetened urine flows from the kidneys through the ureters to the bladder and on to the urethra, literally sugar-coating any free-floating E.coli it might encounter and preventing them from attaching to any cells. It also dislodges any bacteria which already attached to the inner surface of the bladder and urinary tract, ultimately flushing them all down the toilet.
