In the past, D-mannose has been difficult to obtain due to costs and manufacturing capabilities. The pure, high-quality form has recently become commercially available as a natural supplement and you can get it now in our store.

Produces rapid action in as little as 24-48 hours

D-mannose actually adheres to the receptors on the lining of the bladder that attach to the bacteria. This forces the bacteria to slide right off and into the toilet. It is amazingly effective, but one must remember it is only a band-aid, but a far safer one than prophylactic antibiotic use or cranberry juice.
So I would advise taking Clear Tract D-Mannose once or twice a day as a far superior, more effective, and less damaging alternative to cranberry juice for the prevention of chronic UTIs.
D-Mannose may work for mild UTIs, but it is important to note that if the mannose, or cranberry juice is not working, you will want to consider the use of an antibiotic, as the infection can spread into your kidneys and cause some very serious damage if left untreated.
If you do use an antibiotic it is important to take a high quality, high potency probiotic to replace the beneficial bacteria that the antibiotic kills.
It is also important to recognize that prevention of urinary tract infections is also an important principle.
In the 20 years I have been practicing clinical medicine, it has been my observation that one of the most frequent causes of these infections are less than careful hygiene after one develops loose stools or diarrhea.
It is very easy to contaminate one's fingers when wiping oneself with toilet paper, and if those contaminated fingers come anywhere close to the opening of the urethra, there is a high likelihood of infection in predisposed individuals.
Another pearl is for women to ONLY use white unscented toilet paper as many women react to the dyes and chemicals in the other toilet papers Unbleached toilet paper would be even better to reduce any possible chlorine exposure and to help reduce the environmental contamination that comes from the bleaching process.
