The effectiveness of D-Mannose & Cranberry with Probiotics is reflected by the fact that approximately 80% of UTIs result from infections caused by E. coli.D-Mannose with Cranberry & Probiotics also contains proanthocyanidin-rich cranberry (107× concentrate). Proanthocyanidins prevent the adherence of E. coli within the entire urinary tract.The probiotic Lactobacillius rhamnosus included in D-Mannose with Cranberry & Probiotics is a specialized probiotic strain recognized for its effectiveness with antibiotic-resistant bacterial strains. L. rhamnonus is extremely resistant to stomach acids and produces compounds (surfactants) that disrupt pathogenic bacterial strains from adhering to the lining of the urinary tract.
