D-Mannose Attack FAQ

Use this section for any descriptive text you need to fill out your pages or to add introductory headings between other blocks.

D-Mannose is a form of sugar that may prevent UTIs by stopping bacteria from attaching to the bladder lining. It is believed that D-Mannose attaches itself to the E.coli strain, which accounts for over 70% of all UTI-causing bacteria. There have been clinical studies to show that D-Mannose is effective along with feedback from doctors and consumers that D-Mannose helps to prevent UTIs. Even though evidence is limited, and it is not in UTI prevention guidelines, it can certainly help those facing chronic and/or trigger associated UTIs.

D-Mannose Attack is another high-quality supplement for UTI prevention from Utiva which focuses on the E.coli bacteria. We recommend it when someone has complicated recurrent UTIs or has trigger-associated UTIs (such as sex, swimming, travel, etc). It recommended to take at least 2,000mg daily of D-Mannose.

Utiva Cranberry PACs is a clinically proven cranberry extract that binds to most bacteria, including E.coli. PACs are the bioactive molecule of the cranberry and physician guidelines recommend it. Utiva Cranberry PACs is a simple, small, once-a-day pill taken for daily support of the urinary tract to prevent ongoing UTIs. PACs are also the antioxidant of the cranberry and provide other gut health benefits.

For those patients who are chronic and are looking for a stronger approach to prevent UTIs, we recommend taking Cranberry PACs and D-Mannose Attack together.

Yes, you can. They are both safe, natural options that can be effective in stopping all types of bacteria together. With complicated or trigger associated UTI patients, doctors often recommend both products together with a probiotic.

What role does D-Mannose have with IC (interstitial cystitis)?

If you are having UTIs and feel there is a likelihood that the acidity of cranberry can irritate you, D-Mannose Attack is a great option to consider. It will help fight specifically against Ecoli infections and has minimal impact on pH levels causing little to no irritation.

There are no known side effects with Utiva Cranberry PACs unless you are allergic to cranberries. Typically cranberry products are known to have high levels of Vitamin K and Oxalates. These can interfere with blood thinners and aggravate kidney stones. Utiva Cranberry PACs has removed the Vitamin K and only has trace amounts of Oxalates.

Side effects of D-Mannose may include bloating and loose stools. There is evidence that D-mannose may impact sugar levels, so people living with diabetes may want to consult a physician first. High doses of D-Mannose may also cause kidney damage.

Always tell your doctor about any supplements you are taking, including natural ones and those bought without a prescription. That way, your doctor can check on any potential side effects or interactions with any medications.
