What Is It?
D-Mannose is a sugar residue that is naturally present in trace amounts on urinary tract cells and can also be found in minute quantities in certain fruits and plants such as cranberries and birch trees. UTI Cleanse now with Cranberry provides a small amount of cranberry with a large dose of d-mannose in both tablet and powder form for your convenience.
What Does It Do?
Primary Uses: UTI Cleanse now with Cranberry helps prevent recurrent urinary tract infections caused by E. coli. E. coli bacteria attach themselves to the residues of d-mannose that are found on the receptors of urinary tract cells. Supplemental d-mannose provides an alternate binding site for the bacteria, which can then be flushed out. D-mannose has earned the enviable reputation of being able to provide results with exceptional speed, often in as little as 24-48 hours in many cases. Together, D-mannose and cranberry provide a superior solution for the prevention and treatment of UTIs.
Who Should Take It?
UTI Cleanse now with Cranberry is the perfect natural solution for those with recurring UTIs caused by E. coli, especially for those wanting to reduce their use of antibiotics.
Take 1-2 tablets four to five times daily without food, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner.
CAUTION: Consult a health care practitioner prior to use if you are taking blood thinners or have a history of kidney stones. Consult a health care practitioner if symptoms persist or worsen.
