Cranberry is a low shrub or vine found in Europe and North America. It produces berries that are acidic and bright red when ripened. The berries are eaten and are used medicinally to promote urinary tract health.
D-mannose is a naturally occurring sugar that is believed to attach to bacteria in the intestinal tract, preventing the bacteria from sticking to the walls of the bladder and, therefore, allowing it to be eliminated through urination.

What is one of the most common health issues in women of child bearing age?
By a fairly wide margin, the answer to that question is… a urinary tract infection (UTI). UTIs are generally bacterial infections caused by Escherichia coli (E. coli) that effect various regions of the urinary tract. In the lower portion of the urinary tract, it is properly called a bladder infection, “simple” or interstitial cystitis (IC). When it occurs in the upper portion of the urinary tract it should be termed a kidney infection (pyelonephritis). UTI is the second most common bodily infection of any kind and is much more common in women than men. In fact, a woman’s lifetime risk of experiencing a UTI is greater than 50% and approximately 10% of woman afflicted suffer recurrence at least annually.
Can the right nutrition support a healthy urinary tract and possibly boost the body’s ability to defend against UTIs?
If you’ve had a urinary tract infection in the past and you can remember your mother making you drink cranberry juice, it turns out she was really on to something. Cranberries and cranberry juice enjoy a long standing reputation as helpful treatments for UTI. Now modern research has determined at least two reasons for that success. First, cranberry juice and cranberry extract contain compounds that specifically prevent E. coli from adhering to the mucous lining of the bladder. Secondly, cranberries contain hippuric acid, a naturally occurring organic acid found to have mild antibiotic properties.
But wait; there is one more reason to consider for cranberry’s success. Researchers have found that a simple sugar called D-mannose found in cranberries, apples, peaches, some plants and other berries, may actually be the main anti-adherence factor against E. coli. The mechanism of action appears to be that because D-mannose is not metabolized like glucose and fructose, a large amount of it spills out of the digestive pathway and therefore finds its way through the kidneys and into the bladder, intact. E. coli uses a specialized protein-sugar substance called lectin to adhere to the mucus lining of the ureters, bladder and urethra. When these specialized lectins come in contact with D-mannose, they lose their stickiness and ability to adhere so the bacteria is simply swept out of the system and body with the discharge of urine. Preliminary trials, it’s safety record as a commonly found food compound, additional health benefits and positive results by a growing number of holistic physicians prompted LifeSeasons to include D-Mannose as the lead ingredient in Urinari-X.
If an individual has taken several courses of antibiotics for bladder infections that kept coming back and is now on medication for yeast; can she or he still take Urinari-X?
The medical literature has begun to raise questions about the effectiveness of antibiotic therapy in UTI, especially in the most frequently encountered cases of UTI caused by common E. coli. There is growing concern among practitioner and researchers that antibiotic treatment may actually promote recurrent UTIs. If currently on medication, one should always consult their physician before starting a new therapy or altering a current prescription in any way. That being said and understood, one should also be aware that natural therapies may be a better first line option. Antibiotics and some powerful antimicrobial agents are so broad spectrum that prolonged use or repeated treatment often kills friendly microbes such as necessary and beneficial probiotics leaving the body exposed to post treatment pathogens. Urinari-X is a body eco-friendly supplement designed to support tissue integrity and a balanced microbial environment to help prevent and guard against the negative effects of harmful bacteria and yeast overgrowth.
