Cranberries aren’t just great for Thanksgiving dinner. If you struggle with urinary health you’ve probably been told to drink lots of cranberry juice. This is because cranberries include a nutrient called D-Mannose which research is showing might help maintain a healthy, clean urinary tract to support the body’s defenses against occasional UTI’s .1,2
Most UTIs are caused when E. coli, a very common bacteria, finds its way into the urinary tract, sticks to the lining and multiplies.3 We like to think of D-Mannose and E. coli as star-crossed lovers, like Romeo and Juliet. Once they meet, the E. coli is so attracted to the D-Mannose, it lets go of the urinary tract lining to embrace its new paramour and together they make a quick (if not poetic) exit through your urine.1,2,4 Our formulation is designed to help promote your urinary tract health and normal cleansing of the urinary tract lining.
Cranberries are superfoods. In addition to D-Mannose, they also are loaded with other beneficial compounds.5 But cranberries are extremely tart and hard to stomach without adding piles of sugar—just check out the label of your favorite cranberry juice. The problem with added sugar is that many people aim to eliminate, or reduce, added sugars from their diet. D-mannose, on the other hand, is a simple sugar, but is not fully metabolized by the body and is excreted in the urine so it is less likely to spike your blood sugar – unlike the added sugar in cranberry juice!
Nested Naturals D-Mannose Plus gives you the benefits of an impossibly huge serving of cranberries in one potent capsule. It’s much more concentrated than cranberry juice and there’s no added sugar. We include both D-Mannose naturally sourced from non-GMO corn to aid urinary health and extract of organic cranberries for a nutrient boost. D-Mannose Plus is formulated to support your urinary tract health and help your immune system clear occasional UTIs before they take hold. As usual, if a UTI develops and becomes problematic, please see your healthcare provider as soon as possible.
