Description:

D-MANNOSE

D-MANNOSE is a monosaccharide hexose simple sugar, naturally found in some trees, berries and fruits, such as cranberry, and is closely related to glucose. Small amounts of D-MANNOSE are metabolized by our bodies; more than small amounts are excreted promptly into the urine and it complements the body’s natural cleansing process. D-MANNOSE attaches to bacteria better than bacteria attaches to human cells in the bladder and urinary tract. When we take a large quantity of D-MANNOSE, almost all of it spills into the urine through our kidneys, literally coating any bacteria present so they can no longer attach to the inside walls of the bladder and urinary tract. The bacteria are then literally rinsed away with normal urination.

Clinical studies(1) have shown that D-Mannose supplementation had significantly reduced the risk of recurrent UTI which was no different than in the Nitrofurantoin (an antibiotic used to treat bladder infections) group. More studies will be needed to validate the results of this study, but initial findings show that D-mannose may be useful for UTI prevention.

CRANBERRY JUICE EXTRACT

CRANBERRIES have been traditionally used for hundreds of years to support urinary tract health. The pro-anthocyanidins found in Cranberry fruit help promote a free bladder wall surface to support healthy urinary function. CRANBERRY juice extract is rich in pro-anthocyanidins which helps to support a healthy immune system. These molecules compete with the mucosal surfaces for attachment by other cells, helping to promote an uninhibited bladder wall.

PREVENTING UTI’S

NIH-funded research suggests that one factor behind recurrent UTIs may be the ability of bacteria to attach to cells lining the urinary tract. Current belief is that the prevention of UTI is achieved by inhibiting the infecting bacteria, E. coli, from adhering to uroepithelial cells (Sobota 1984; Schmidt and Sobota 1988; Zafriri 1989; Ofek 1991; Howell 1998). Bacterial adherence to these cells is a critical step in the development of infection, without which the causative bacteria are flushed, preventing their colonization of the urinary tract.

There is evidence that Cranberry juiced (or extract) may be helpful in a wide variety of medical conditions as summarized by the Mayo Clinic(2).

Consumption of a cranberry juice beverage (one cup per day) lowered the number of clinical urinary tract infection episodes in women with a recent history of urinary tract infection(3) as published in the Am J Clin Nutr 2016;103:1434–42

CRANBERRY Juice extract containing 25% of the active pro-anthocyanidins is a recommended alternative especially for diabetics as fresh cranberry juice is very high in sugar containing 30 g of sugar per cup, whereas the extract contains no sugar.

SUMMARY:

D-MANNOSE and CRANBERRY JUICE EXTRACT each have demonstrated positive effects in controlling symptoms of UTI.

UTI Relief™ provides these two clinically proven nutrients at the effective dosages shown to help control symptoms of urinary tract infections (UTI) and having both nutrients in one formula promises maximum benefit and without the side effects of prescription medications.

In the United States, urinary tract infections account for more than 7 million visits to medical offices and hospitals each year.

IMPROVED ABSORPTION:

Vitex’s UTI Relief™ formula is provided in the new DRcaps.

DRcaps technology enables the active nutrients to pass through the stomach unchanged, and be absorbed in the small intestine. If consumed in conventional capsules, the nutrients can be destroyed by acid in the stomach.

By using DRcaps, absorption is substantially increased by delivering the nutrients directly to the small intestine for absorption and would approach absorption comparable to intravenous infusion.

DRcaps have many advantages over traditional enteric coated tablets or capsules. This new technology eliminates the costly enteric coating process which requires the use of solvents and heat which can have destructive effect on the active ingredients in the formula.

DRcaps are resistant to moisture and provide a more precise and consistent dissolution rate compared to traditional enteric coated capsules or tablets.

UTI Relief™ containing CRANBERRY juice extract with D-MANNOSE can be used as part of your diet to promote a healthy urinary tract or can be used as supportive therapy with traditional antibiotic therapy.

NOTE: For maximum benefit, take the SOURCE Optimum, SONA based vitamin/mineral/enzyme formula and VEGAN Omega 3-6-9 to provide the body with optimum levels of other essential nutrients necessary to help maintain long term good health.

Packaging: Packed in light & oxygen resistant recyclable PETE (Bisphenol A free) bottles. 
Gluten Free: Contains no artificial preservatives, colours, flavours, starch, sugar, lactose, dairy, salt, yeast or wheat.
DRcaps: Hypromellose polymer, gellan gum (designed to dissolve in the small intestine)
