Most cranberry juice is loaded with fructose, a monosaccharide (simple sugar) that can potentially lead to health problems like blood sugar instability, stress on your liver, and increased uric acid levels that can raise your blood pressure.
The active ingredient in cranberry juice responsible for its benefit to you has been identified and isolated—and that is D-mannose.
It can be derived from peaches, apples, berries and some other plants. Pure D-mannose is 10-50 times stronger than cranberry, non-toxic and completely safe, with NO adverse effects.
D-mannose can help cure more than 90 percent of all UTIs within one to 2 days and it does NOT produce the metabolic stresses that fructose does because it’s more like glucose, which every cell in your body is designed to use.
It also helps to nourish your healthy flora because it doesn’t affect “friendly” bacteria. It doesn’t kill any bacteria—it just renders them unable to stay in your urinary tract.
Studies show that frequent consumption of products containing probiotic bacteria can promote good urinary tract health—fermented foods such as sauerkraut, kefir and other fermented vegetables are great for your overall health—including your urinary system.
