D-Mannose for UTIs
D-mannose is a natural sugar, found in a lot of fruits, including peaches, apples, oranges and more that helps prevent Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs). When D-mannose makes its way to your urinary tract, it targets E. Coli, the bacteria responsible for 90% of UTIs. Instead of killing E. coli, D-mannose acts as a competitive inhibitor, meaning it attracts and binds with E. coli so that the bacteria can be occupied and safely rinsed, preventing it from binding with your urinary tract instead.
D-mannose is one of the active ingredients in Uqora's products, Uqora Target, and Uqora Control. When combined with other, proven mechanisms, the effect is even greater. All of Uqora's products take a multifold approach against bacteria, combining the power of d-mannose with other clinically proven mechanisms to develop the most effective UTI prevention products available.
How do I take d-mannose powder?
Uqora includes 2g of d-mannose powder. Mix one packet of Uqora with 8-12 oz of water, and drink it flush out UTI-causing bacteria.

Is D-mannose only for E Coli UTIs, or does it help with UTIs caused by other types of bacteria?
Uqora’s product combine bacteria-fighting principals with mechanical principles to give you multifold defense against UTIs.
Uqora Target combines d-mannose with powerful, UTI-fighting ingredients for maximum defense
Uqora's preventive drink mix, Target, takes a multi-layered approach to combine the power of D-Mannose, the immune boosting and UTI fighting benefits of Vitamin C, the gentle diuretic benefits of Vitamin B6 to increase urinary flow and push bacteria out, and finally electrolytes to replace what we lose during urination and boost our immune system (potassium, magnesium, and calcium). So it's true that d-mannose a key component, but it's just one of the factors at play.
You guys... this stuff is a life saver.
"I suffered from CHRONIC UTIs and have had some pretty serious repercussions from taking mass amounts of antibiotics. I have not had a UTI since I started taking uqora. I drink it after things that are my triggers (sex in particular) and it stops it in its tracks!"

What is the right D-Mannose dosage for UTI prevention?
What is D-mannose?
D-mannose is a monosaccharide simple sugar that naturally occurs in fruits. However, unlike glucose, it is absorbed much slower so instead of being digested it passes into the bloodstream, is filtered by the kidneys and then enters the bladder.
How does it work?
Coli is the bacteria responsible for 90% of UTIs. When E.coli enters the urinary tract and bladder, it wants to bind to sugar (mannose) that naturally occurs on your bladder walls leading to an infection and UTI.
D-mannose is special because if it is present in your bladder when the E. Coli enters, it will bind to the E. coli before the E. coli can bind to you. The E.coli then gets flushed out when you urinate. Think of the sugar in your bladder like money, D-mannose like decoy money and E. coli like robbers. When robbers break into your house (bladder) instead of going to your real money (sugar on your bladder walls) they are fooled and go towards the decoy money (D-mannose) and get caught.
Backed by Science
A study done in 2014 looked at 308 women with a history of recurrent UTIs. The first group of women received 2 grams of D-mannose powder in 200 ml of water daily for 6 months. The second group of women received 50 mg of Nitrofurantoin, an antibacterial agent, and the third group received a placebo. During the six months, the women receiving the d-mannose had drastically less UTIs than the placebo group and significantly fewer side effects than the group receiving the Nitrofurantoin. The conclusion of the study was that D-mannose significantly reduced the risk of recurring UTIs.
How to use D-mannose effectively
The recommended amount of D-mannose is 2 grams per serving and while D-mannose naturally occurs in fruits you would have to eat an unrealistic amount of fruit every day to get enough D-mannose for it to make a difference.
D-mannose is available in powder form which you could purchase and drink with one glass of water, but if you wanted maximum UTI prevention, you could get your D-mannose with Uqora. One packet of Uqora contains exactly 2 grams of D-mannose in every serving along with other UTI fighting counterparts like Vitamin-B6, Vitamin-C, potassium, magnesium, and calcium. Vitamin-B6 slightly increases urination so all of that E. coli can be flushed out of your system. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that supports your immune system. Potassium, Magnesium, and calcium are helpful electrolytes. When you drink Uqora not only are you preventing UTIs with the correct dosage of D-mannose, but you are also getting tons other health benefits.
