D-mannose is a type of simple sugar, similar to glucose, that is found naturally in certain fruits, such as cranberries, apples, oranges, and peaches. It is also produced in the human body from glucose.


D-mannose is primarily known for its beneficial effects in the prevention and treatment of urinary tract infections (UTIs). Here is how it can be beneficial:

  • Preventing UTIs: D-mannose is often used to prevent UTIs caused by certain bacteria, including E. coli, which is the most common cause of these infections. It prevents bacteria from attaching to the walls of the urethra and bladder, reducing the risk of infection.

  • Supplement in the treatment of UTIs: Although it does not replace antibiotics for established UTIs, D-mannose can be used as a supplement to reduce symptoms and speed healing.


The mechanism by which D-mannose prevents UTIs is well studied. Bacteria like E. coli have filaments called fimbriae on their surface, which allow them to attach to cells in the bladder and urethra. D-mannose binds to these fimbriae, preventing bacteria from attaching to bladder cells and making it easier to eliminate them through urine.

Side effects

D-mannose is generally well tolerated, but it can have side effects, especially when taken in large quantities. These effects include:

  • Gastrointestinal Issues: As with other forms of sugar, taking D-mannose can lead to bloating, gas, and diarrhea if consumed in excess.

  • Blood Sugar Risk: Although D-mannose is less likely to affect blood sugar than other sugars, people with diabetes should exercise caution and consult a healthcare professional before using it.


D-mannose can be a useful supplement for those who are likely to have frequent urinary infections, especially for prevention. However, it is important to consult a healthcare professional before starting any new supplement, especially if you have pre-existing health conditions or are taking other medications.

Feminine hygiene

Preventing urinary tract infections

1. Hydration

  • Drinking enough water is essential to help dilute urine and ensure that you urinate frequently. This helps flush bacteria out of the urethra before it can cause an infection.

2. Personal hygiene

  • Personal hygiene: It is important to wash from front to back after using the toilet. This prevents the transfer of bacteria from the anus to the urethra and bladder.

  • Shower rather than bath: Showers are generally preferable to baths because they avoid prolonged immersion in water that could be contaminated with bacteria.

3. Empty the bladder regularly

  • Urinating frequently and not holding urine can help prevent infections by expelling bacteria before they can infect the bladder.

4. Dress appropriately

  • Wearing cotton underwear and non-restrictive clothing can help keep the area dry and reduce conditions for bacterial growth. Avoid clothing that is too tight, which can irritate the urethra.

5. Sexual hygiene

  • Urinate before and after sex to help flush out potential bacteria that may have been introduced during sexual activity.

  • Using good lubrication and avoiding irritating products can also reduce the risk of micro-trauma and infections.

6. Changing sanitary products

  • For women, it is advisable to regularly change tampons or sanitary napkins during periods to avoid the proliferation of bacteria.

These hygiene practices, combined with a balanced diet and the use of supplements like D-mannose when appropriate, can greatly help prevent UTIs. However, if you experience UTI symptoms, it is important to consult a healthcare professional for proper evaluation and treatment.
