Headline: D-Mannose: An Effective Urinary Tract Infection Treatment
The Stats: A study of nearly 200 female college students presenting with symptoms of UTI found that more than 40% of infections were resistant to first- and second- line antibiotics.
Observations: D-mannose, a natural supplement for urinary tract infections, has been shown to block E coli receptors effectively and literally flush bacteria away. D-mannose has also been found to slow recurrence of UTI.
Conclusions: For those with UTIs that would otherwise be treated with antibiotics, D-mannose may be one of many first steps in the war against antibiotic resistance.

Study Stats: 45 women evaluated over a 15 month period to determine whether D-mannose alone is effective in treating acute urinary tract infections in women and its possible use in managing recurrences. (Domenici and colleagues)
Results: D-mannose had a significant positive effect on resolving UTI's and improving patients' quality of life. As a preventative administered for 6 months, it also showed promising results.

OUR OWN RESEARCH SUPPORTS THE NEED FOR NATURAL UTI TREATMENT
A Large Survey And A Big Problem
In July 2018, we surveyed over 1,000 women across the US and found out that 68% suffer from UTI's on an occasional or regular basis. That's about 83 million women. All age groups were equally affected.
And 88% are unaware that there's a natural nutritional supplement that can help alleviate UTI symptoms and prevent recurrences.
