D-Mannose & UTI's

Updated: Aug 25, 2023

D-mannose is a type of sugar found naturally in fruits and vegetables. It has been shown to be effective in preventing and treating UTI's or urinary tract infections. This was also confirmed in a study done in 2022. This study concluded that it may be as effective as antibiotics in uncomplicated urinary tract infections.


D-mannose works by binding to the bacteria that cause UTIs, preventing them from attaching to the walls of the urinary tract. This helps to remove bacteria from the body.


There is some evidence that D-mannose is more effective than antibiotics in preventing UTIs. A study published in the journal "Urology" found that D-mannose was as effective as the antibiotic nitrofurantoin in preventing UTIs in women with a history of recurrent infections. D-mannose is also effective in treating uncomplicated urinary tract infections. Another study published in the journal "Clinical Treatment and Risk Management" found that D-mannose was effective in reducing symptoms of UTIs and eliminating infections in 80% of women with sub-acute infections .


D-mannose is generally safe for most people. However, it can cause some side effects such as diarrhea and nausea. It is important to talk with your doctor before taking D-mannose, especially if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.


With any UTI, close follow up and evaluation for potential complications such as kidney infections is crucial. Work with your doc.


Fortunately the evidence on D-Mannose is now seen in published medical resources and the National Library of Medicine as well.


CAUTION: not all D-Mannose products are identical. We encourage you to discuss with your doctor what he or she advises for you.
