What is D-Mannose?

D-Mannose is a naturally occurring sugar that can be found in small amounts in some fruits, and even coffee.

As a health supplement, it’s used for the prevention of recurring UTIs. Bacteria in the urinary tract bind to D-Mannose rather than attaching to the bladder wall, which helps the body flush out bacteria in the urine before an infection can make itself at home.

Hormonal contraception uses synthetic forms of naturally occurring hormones that work in various ways to prevent pregnancy. These hormones prevent ovulation (the release of an egg from the ovary that can be fertilised by a sperm), thicken cervical fluid to prevent sperm from entering the uterus, and make sure the lining of the uterus stays too thin for a fertilised egg to implant into. It’s all very science-y, but we’ve summed it up nicely in a blog about synthetic progestins.

How to take D-Mannose powder capsules

Based on research evidence and feedback from our community, we recommend taking 4 x 500mg D-Mannose capsules with water after sex as a preventative measure if you’re prone to sex-related UTIs.

For UTI prevention, take 4 capsules in the morning and 4 in the evening for 2-3 days when you feel symptoms starting.

To help prevent recurrent UTIs on a long-term basis, take 4 capsules every day.

An ongoing study by Oxford University is trialling 2000mg of D-Mannose powder, taken daily for 6 months. We’ll keep you updated on progress!

Possible side effects of D-Mannose powder

As research is still ongoing, there are minimal recorded side effects with using D-Mannose. Evidence suggests:

  • Long-term use of doses higher than 0.2g/kg of body weight may cause diarrhoea or bloating

  • However, research suggests there are significantly fewer adverse effects (such as diarrhoea, nausea and vaginal burning) with D‑mannose compared to antibiotics

Can I take D-Mannose with antibiotics?

Yes, you can take D-Mannose with antibiotics. If you have been diagnosed with an acute UTI, you may be prescribed antibiotics by your healthcare professional to treat this. D-Mannose can be used alongside prescription antibiotics.

If you have recurrent UTIs and use D-Mannose as a preventative treatment, you may avoid getting a full-blown UTI altogether; avoiding the need for antibiotics.
