Urinary TractSUPPORT FOR UTI's

Not only do they cause a lot of discomfort and anguish if left untreated infection can track up the Ureters to the Kidneys which is significantly more serious requiring medical interventions. We often hear about the use of Cranberry Juice to alleviate minor UTI's but they can contain a lot of sugar so it makes sense to focus on the key ingredient in Cranberry Juice - a simple sugar known as D-Mannose. D-Mannose occurs naturally in some plants, including cranberries.

Although small amounts of D-Mannose are metabolized by the human body, much of it is rapidly excreted in the urine. In the bladder, D-Mannose doesn't kill bacteria it's role is to adhere to undesirable foreign substances, preventing them from sticking to the lining of the bladder. This way they are simply 'flushed' out.

A level teaspoon of D-Mannose powder is stirred into water and it can be used to support normal bladder health or at the first sign of irritation or burning.   

Dr Jonathan Wright a well known Integrative Medical Doctor in the United States has written an informative article about UTI's and the use of D-Mannose

 

Additional tips for UTI's

Baking soda: Drinking baking soda mixed in water at the first signs of a UTI can quickly neutralize your urine and kill any bacteria living in it. You can mix as little as a single tablespoon of baking soda in water and then drink it several times throughout the day to treat minor, uncomplicated UTIs and thus prevent them from worsening.

Probiotic supplementation: Researchers at the Langone Medical Center at New York University recommend living probiotics supplementation to help keep UTIs from occurring, especially those that may originate in the bladder. Based on the results of a double-blind trial involving 453 women who had experienced regular and recurring bladder infections, probiotic blends containing a unique and harmless strain of Escherichia coli (E. coli) were found to be particularly effective at treating and curing UTIs.
