Waterfall D-Mannose ™ - Questions and Answers
What is Waterfall D-Mannose ™? How does it function on the body?
D-Mannose is a natural occuring simple sugar (monosaccharide). D-Mannose is aborbed eight times slower than glucose, and when ingested, is not converted into glycogen or stored in the liver, but rather goes directly to the blood stream. Therefore, D-Mannose is mostly filtered through the kidneys and directed to the bladder. There, it has the property to bind with E. Coli bacteria.
How does a bladder infection appear?
The bladder lining is comprised of polysaccharide molecules. Finger-like projections on the cell surface of E. Coli bacteria adhere to these molecules, initiating an infection.
What is the effect of D-Mannose?
In the presence of D-Mannose, E. Coli preferentially attach to D-Mannose molecules forming a complex which is expelled with the next flushing.
Is D-Mannose advisable for all bladder infections?
D-Mannose is effective exclusively for infections caused by E. Coli bacteria, which represent 90% of cases. For infections caused by another agent, D-Mannose can prevent a secondary infection caused by E. Coli bacteria.
