A urinary tract infection (UTI) will affect about half of women at some point in their lives. More than 90% of UTIs are caused by E. coli bacteria. These critters have the ability to grab on to the lining of the bladder and can even work their way up the ureters into the kidneys — a potentially dangerous situation. Vibrant Health’s U.T. Vibrance may be the perfect solution to help rid the urinary tract of E. coli.
U.T. Vibrance contains D-mannose, a natural sugar found in fruits like cranberries and peaches and it is made in our own bodies as well. Our bodies do not metabolize it, so it will not interfere with blood sugar levels. After absorption, mannose heads for the kidneys and is excreted in the urine, flushing out UTI-causing bacteria while leaving beneficial microbes intact.
A study published in 2014 concluded that patients taking mannose had significantly reduced risk of recurrent UTI, as did the group taking Nitrofurantoin, but the mannose group had significantly lower risk of side effects. The initial findings of this study show that D-mannose may be useful for UTI prevention.
There are also several botanicals in this blend that have been traditionally used to support and restore urinary tract health. It includes whole cranberry and blueberry, both rich in antioxidant proanthocyanidins. Uva-ursi and goldenseal contain berberine, a powerful antimicrobial alkaloid. Diuretic herbs dandelion, parsley and golden rod increase urine output to facilitate the removal of bacteria. Some of these herbs also have anti-inflammatory action to help stop itching, burning, painful urination.
