Does D-mannose Really Work?

Clinical Trials have concluded D'Mannose is an effective treatment for up to 85% of female patients with a history of recurrent Urinary Tract Infection. Patients on the Nitrofurantoin Antibiotic reported significantly higher side effects and had a higher rate (20%) of re-infection.

While there have been many sceptics in the past, a growing body of evidence points to D-Mannose being a natural alternative treatment for a wide variety of ailments and diseases including UTIs, Prostatitis, Cystitis and general Bladder Problems. Many thousands of people have found relief through D'Mannose and we continue to receive dozens of letters and emails every week from our grateful readers.

Here at Sweet Cures , we're undoubtedly convinced D-Mannose does work. Our beliefs are backed up by an NIH funded Clinical Trial, a Journal of Clinical Urology Pilot Study, user reviews and surveys, and our very own Founding and Managing Director's personal story of her battle with, and ultimate victory against, Cystitis.

So How does D-mannose Work?

The E.Coli strain of bacteria is responsible for up to 90% of Urinary Tract Infections. When taken as a supplement, D'Mannose is not metabolised (not processed) by the digestive system. It enters the urinary system where it becomes attached to the E.Coli causing the infection. The unified bacteria and D'Mannose is then expelled in the urine.

The Evidence

In this 6 month long Clinical Trial conducted by the NIH in February of 2014, the objective was to test whether or not D-Mannose could effectively prevent recurrent UTIs in women, which according to the NIH occur more frequently in Women than Men, at a ratio of 8:1.

The NIH Clinical Trial concludes that: "D-mannose had significantly reduced the risk of recurrent UTI". With results showing that D-Mannose patients: "had a significantly lower risk of recurrent UTI episode during prophylactic therapy". A prophylactic dose is simply a dose of D'Mannose taken daily as a preventetive measure.

The Journal of Clinical Urology Pilot Study concludes: "A significant difference was observed in the proportion of women remaining infection free versus antibiotic treatment." And results showing: "Mean time to UTI recurrence was 52.7 days with antibiotic treatment, and 200 days with oral D-mannose". Evidently D'Mannose was much more effective than antibiotics at reducing the risk of recurrence of UTI.

The results are clear, and the conclusions undeniable. What's more, unlike powerful antibiotics with their many, and often debilitating, side-affects, D-Mannose is an all natural sugar already present in our bodies which can be safely taken long-term. This is because D-Mannose does not affect the bacteria in any way. It simply attaches to it. The bacteria crave it, rather than resist it. Because the introduced D-Mannose is not metabolized by the body, the bonded D-mannose and bacteria are expelled with the urine. Essentially flushing away the disease, the excess D'Mannose and all associated symptoms. Leaving the you feel like your healthy self in a matter of hours.

At Sweet Cures , we've known this for a long time, and have refined our products and manufacturing practices to produce 100% contaminant free D-Mannose. Ensuring our customers receive the only highest quality, most effective D-Mannose available on the market today.

For the vast majority of people using it, D-Mannose is a miracle cure. A drug free, natural product, which can wash away your ailments. And for the small percentage of patients not cured, we believe if the following practices are used in conjunction with D-Mannose, they may even find relief themselves.

How to take D'Mannose

  • An hour after ingesting D-Mannose with a glass of water, drink another 2 glasses of water. This will help flush the E. coli bacteria, which has attached to the D-Mannose, from your system and clear the urinary tract of any lingering bacteria.
  • Continue prophylaxis even after symptoms has subsided. Bacteria often embed themselves deep in the bladder wall when escaping attack from antibiotics or D-Mannose and may lay dormant for a period of time. This often leads subjects to mistakenly believe they have been cured.
  • Remember, D-Mannose is simply a sugar which is not metabolized. It simply passes through your system, attracting bacteria like a magnet, then expelled through urine. This makes it safe to use with children as well as diabetics.
  • Keep the urine's pH above 7.5 during the course of your D-Mannose regimen. Bacteria thrives in an acidic environment doubling in numbers every 20 - 40 minutes. Conversely, bacterial growth is inhibited in an alkalized environment.

And remember, we're here to help, because we know what you're going through. Feel free to call or email us for advice or support.
