D-Mannose is a simple sugar that keeps bacteria like E. Coli, a common cause of UTI’s, from attaching to the wall of the bladder.
To treat a bladder infection, 1 teaspoon (or 2 grams) of D-mannose powder is 2 grams (1 teaspoon) twice daily.
Once symptoms resolve, taking it daily for several more days may prevent a recurrence.
D- Mannose is one of the most effective supplements to cure a bladder infection, according to Earth Clinic readers who have been reporting feedback on D-Mannose for over a decade!
Kiki from San Diego writes Earth Clinic
I used to get frequent urinary tract infections and was tired of paying $100 to go to the urgent care clinic for another prescription for antibiotics. Then, I read about D-Mannose. It’s not an antibiotic because it does not kill bacteria. It is a type of natural sugar that gets excreted through the urinary tract. The sugar prevents bacteria from sticking to the walls of your urinary tract and flushes it away when you urinate. The instructions are on the bottle, but it comes in either tablet or powder form. You take it with a glass of water every few hours. You can use it as a treatment and also as regular prevention if you are the type to get it often. If you want more information, there is a ton on the internet. Many web stores sell it also. This simple treatment saved me a lot of money and a lot of suffering!
Lynn from Raleigh, NC writes Earth Clinic:
The moment I know I have a UTI, I take 1 teaspoon of the powder and drink 4 -25 oz bottles of water for 2-3 hours… I just keep drinking water and urinating it out. I do this from the early morning until 5 pm. Drinking the water each time I take a teaspoon. Lots and lots of water. It is gone by 8 pm. As a maintenance, I take 1 teaspoon once a week followed by 50 oz of water.
