It is a “simple” sugar extracted from larch and birch woods. Once ingested, it is absorbed in the upper part of the intestine and, after about 60 minutes, arrives unchanged in the urinary tract. Escherichia Coli, through lecithins, attaches itself to D-Mannose and is excreted in the urine.
D-Mannose is not metabolized, converted to glycogen, nor stored in the liver.
The D-Mannose also inhibits the formation of Biofilms of many bacteria, making them weaker to antibiotics and body’s immune defenses. It can be taken by diabetics, children and hospitalized patients.
Making anti-adhesive the surface of the mucous membranes, the Cranberry helps to inhibits the adhesion of bacteria to the epithelial cells of the bladder mucosa. It is very useful to prevent the “relapses”.
It has essentially antiseptic properties thanks to its active ingredient, Hydroquinone, which inhibits adhesion to the urothelial walls of Escherichia Coli, facilitating its elimination through urine. Furthermore, Hydroquinone has shown an excellent anti-inflammatory action in the presence of infections caused by most of the E.Coli and Streptococcus strains.
VITIS VINIFERA AND RESVERATROL:
They are used for their specific anti-inflammatory activity even in presence of relapsing inflammatory processes.
