  • D-mannose is a naturally occurring sugar that sticks to the E. coli bacteria that most commonly causes UTIs, so it can be effectively “rinsed” out when you urinate
  • D-mannose might also work by promoting the activation of Tamm-Horsfall protein, which plays a key role in your body’s defense against UTIs
  • D-mannose is the active ingredient in cranberry juice, but the amount of D-mannose in cranberry juice is significantly less than its supplement form, making cranberry juice much less effective for UTIs
