Ingredients of Interest:
D-Mannose is a natural occurring simple sugar that removes “bad” bacteria by
attachment and voiding. It’s absorbed eight times slower than glucose and, when
ingested, is not converted to glycogen or stored in the liver but, rather, goes
directly into the blood stream from the kidneys to the bladder. The bacteria
displaced by Mannose is responsible for 80-90% of UTIs, whereas antibiotic
treatment may cause an imbalance in the normal flora.
N-Acetyl Glucosamine or NAG is an important form of glucosamine found
in the body. It is the form that is used for the production of glycoproteins. The glycoprotein layer in the mucosal lining of the
urinary tract has a high content of NAG. This layer of mucosal cells is the protective barrier against acids and bacteria, and it is
replaced every 3-4 days. Due to this high cell turnover rate the GI tract requires increased amounts of NAG to support
structural integrity and functionality.

(Bacillus coagulans) is a gram-positive, spore-forming, lactic acid producing strain of Bacillus coagulans. It
is covered by 13 domestic and numerous international patents with others pending. Research has demonstrated its ability to:
¤ Maintain proper biodiversity (variety of all the strains) in the small and large bowel.
¤ Inhibit overt and opportunistic pathogens that proliferate in high alkaline environments.
¤ Improve digestion by producing a wide spectrum of enzymes.
¤ Utilize undigested carbohydrates and lipids in the small bowel.
¤ Help regulate gut associated cytokine activity.
Cranberry Extract helps to acidify urine. It naturally contains proanthocyanidins or PCO’s that neutralize free radicals and
prevents the adherence of pathogenic bacteria to the a cells that line the bladder and urinary tract. Cranberry has also been
used as a urine deodorizer as it decreases the strong smell of ammonia.
