What is D-mannose?
D-mannose is a type of sugar that is similar in structure to glucose. It is found naturally in some fruits, such as cranberries. The formulation of D-mannose used in research studies is the primary ingredient in Kydella's d-mannose formulation. It is believed to help prevent UTIs by preventing bacteria from sticking to the walls of the urinary tract.
How can Kydella's D-mannose help prevent UTIs?
When a person takes Kydella’s d-mannose, it is absorbed into the bloodstream and eventually makes its way to the urinary tract. There, it binds to the bacteria responsible for UTIs, such as E. coli, and prevents them from attaching to the walls of the urinary tract. This allows the bacteria to be flushed out of the body through urination before they can cause an infection.
Is there any evidence D-mannose works?
Research suggests that d-mannose is effective in preventing UTIs, particularly in people with vaginas who are prone to recurrent infections. Some studies have found that taking d-mannose supplements can reduce the risk of UTIs by up to 85%.
Overall, while UTIs can be a painful and inconvenient condition, Kydella’s d-mannose offers a natural and effective way to prevent these infections from occurring in the first place.
