Cranberries aren’t just great for Thanksgiving dinner. If you struggle with chronic UTIs 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 be as effective as antibiotics for preventing recurring UTIs.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 D-Mannose may be helpful at eliminating stray E. coli before they have a chance to take hold, potentially preventing not just full-blown infection but also reducing the need to take antibiotics.
D-Mannose occurs naturally in both cranberries and corn, and has some super powers when it comes to E. coli. 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
Cranberries are superfoods. In addition to including the D-Mannose compound, they also are loaded with antioxidants.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 sugar is that it slows down white blood cells and impairs the immune system.6 When fighting a UTI, you need your immune system working at full power.
Nested Naturals D-Mannose Plus gives you the natural 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 fight E. coli and extract of organic cranberries for an anti-oxidant boost. D-Mannose Plus is formulated to support your urinary tract naturally and help prevent UTIs before they take hold.
