Description

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are the second most common type of infection in the body. Women tend to suffer from UTIs far more often than men. More than 50% of women will develop a UTI during her lifetime. For 20% of women, infection becomes recurrent, occurring 3 or more times per year. Certain female subgroups, especially female multiple sclerosis patients, show a greater tendency for chronic, recurrent urinary tract infections. Conventional therapy for these UTIs consists of antibiotics. However, the danger in using long- term antibiotic therapy is the risk of developing antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria, and the adverse effects to friendly micro-organisms and gut flora from the usage of antibiotic therapy.

D-Mannose

UT Support is an all-natural supplement with D-mannose for supporting a healthy urinary tract. More than 90% of UTIs are due to Escherichia coli (E.coli), a bacteria that is normally in the intestinal tract. When E.coli seeps into the urinary tract and multiplies, problems may arise and cause various symptoms of urinary and abdominal discomfort.

UT Support contains a simple but unique sugar, D-mannose, which absorbs primarily through the kidneys and excretes rapidly through the urine. This MOA helps to explain the efficacy of UT Support in addressing UTIs. E.coli possesses small, fingerlike projections that contain an amino acid-sugar complex called lectin that makes them stick to the cells that line the urinary tract. If left untreated, UTIs can escalate into kidney infections. Studies have shown that lectin readily binds to D-mannose, and E.coli ”stick” to D-mannose as it passes through the urinary tract. The result is that D- mannose causes the bacteria to be rinsed away in the urine. It has also been suggested that D-mannose works to support a healthy urinary tract by promoting activation of a specific glycoprotein called the Tamm-Horsfall protein, which specifically assists the body in fighting UTIs.
