FEMANNOSE® with d-mannose and cranberry extract. For the acute treatment and prevention of cystitis.
Pain and burning when passing water?
Treat without antibiotics
Almost half of all women will experience cystitis and urinary tract infections at least once in their lives. Burning and pain when passing water are often annoying symptoms, but an increased urge to urinate can also accompany cystitis. All too often, people may reach for antibiotics to treat cystitis.
FEMANNOSE® with d-mannose and cranberry extract is a new treatment approach for cystitis and urinary tract infections caused by E. coli, for the acute treatment and prevention. The main advantage is that, unlike with antibiotics, the pathogenic germs are unable to develop resistance because d-mannose is eliminated with the urine in its original state.

Intestinal bacteria as the cause of cystitis
Why women are affected more than men
E. coli bacteria cause 90 per cent of all cases of cystitis. They are actually established in the intestines. In women, there is only a small gap between the anus and the urethral opening. Plus their urethra is only between 2.5 and 4 cm long. This makes it easier for the bacteria to enter the urethra or even the bladder.
Often, the immune system fails to notice the E. coli bacteria entering the urinary tract. A healthy defence mechanism will generally fight these bacteria straight away. However, if this function is impaired, then the E. coli bacteria can adhere to the mucous membranes and cause an infection.
Danger foreseen – germ banished
How FEMANNOSE® works
On taking FEMANNOSE®, d-mannose and cranberry extract travel to the bladder and the urinary tract in their original state. D-mannose and the constituents in the cranberry extract bind with the tiny hairs (fimbriae) of the E. coli bacteria. This deactivates the bacteria that cause the infection (90% E. coli) and washes them out with the urine. May start to work as soon as it is taken.
