Dear Reader,
If you’re here, it’s probably because you’re fed up with cystitis, or maybe it’s the first time it’s taken hold in your life.

Bacterial cystitis is commonly treated through the administration of antibiotics.
Today, however, I want to talk about a completely natural remedy and without any particular side effects to deal with attacks of cystitis or to hinder the onset: the D-Mannose.

Let’s leave now and get to know him together!

What is D-Mannose?

D Mannose is a simple sugar, that is, formed from a single molecule, naturally occurring in our bodies and in some types of plants. D-Mannose is recognized for its unique ability to block the proliferation of certain types of bacteria within the urinary tract thus allowing for the treatment and/or prevention of infections.
D-Mannose also prevents bacteria from sticking to the walls of the urinary tract, hindering inflammation of the same.

D-Mannose, unlike antibiotics, does not create resistance from bacteria sensitive to it, thus resulting in a remedy also valid in the long term.

D-Mannose: How it works

D-Mannose has a conformation compatible with the filamentous appendages (the legs) of certain types of bacteria, such as Escherichia Coli. This compatibility allows D-Mannose, which arrives almost entirely in the bladder, to adhere to the bacteria rather than the mucous membranes of the urinary tract. By urinating, the bacteria will be excreted along with the D-Mannose.

Unlike the antibiotic, therefore, D-Mannose does not kill the bacteria but accompanies them out of the urinary tract. This feature prevents the bacteria from strengthening, becoming resistant to the action of D-Mannose.

The bacteria currently found to be most sensitive to the action of D-Mannose are:

  • Escherichia Coli
  • Klebsiella
  • Shigella
  • Salmonella

Side effects and risks

Before proceeding to take D-Mannose, it is good to know its few side effects.

If you suffer from diabetes, you need to take into account that D-Mannose is a sugar and, as such, has an impact at the glycemic level. Although scientific studies have shown that this impact is minimal, it is important to check with your doctor or a specialist before approaching this remedy.

Some of the possible side effects of D-Mannose include:

  • Slight bloating and/or meteorism
  • Diarrhoea (minor episodes)

Urinary tract infections, such as cystitis, should not be underestimated: D-Mannose is a remedy that has been shown to work but discussion with your doctor is essential to prevent cystitis from getting worse.


The dosage to be followed may vary according to:

  1. to the purpose for which we decide to take it (hinder the recurrence of cystitis or treat its acute phase);
  2. the chosen D-Mannose (there are many types available on the market, often combined with other ingredients).

D-Mannose dosage in Dimann products

Acute phase of cystitis

As mentioned earlier, D-Mannose helps us expel the bacteria that cause cystitis.
During the acute phase (when cystitis suddenly arrives), it is essential that D-Mannose is taken in its pure form and that its intake is spread throughout the day so that the urinary tract is always well protected.

The most useful Dimann product at this stage is Dimann Puro, made from only pure D-Mannose extracted from birch.

The dosage starts at 3 grams of D-Mannose per day, divided into 6 doses, and gradually decreases as the symptoms improve. Consult the Dimann Puro sheet for more information.
Pure D-Mannose should be taken with an empty bladder in order to optimize its distribution along the walls of the urinary tract. One hour after each intake, you can drink plenty of water to allow the bacteria to be expelled through the urine.

If you wake up during the night to urinate, you should take an additional dose of pure D-Mannose.

Post-acute phase and prevention

When the acute phase is over or when we want to hinder the appearance of cystitis, D-Mannose is the remedy that can help us to “keep clean” the urinary system day by day.

To strengthen the natural defenses of the urinary system and rebuild tissue damaged by bacteria, d-Mannose alone is not enough.

The most useful Dimann product in this phase is Dimann Daily, based on:

  • GAG and MSM, ingredients that support the repair of damage caused by previous cystitis
  • Xylitol, an ingredient that acts on those bacteria less sensitive to the action of D-Mannose
  • Quercetin, an ingredient that reduces inflammation still in progress
  • Magnesium and Potassium, ingredients that support the relaxation of the walls of the urinary tract, in case they were contracted
  • D-Mannose, extracted from birch

The dosage provides for the intake of 4 grams of Dimann Daily powder or 5 grams of Dimann Daily Tablets (including about 1 gram of D-Mannose). The dose is split half in the morning and half in the evening. See the Dimann Dail fact sheety to learn more.

Although not only D-Mannose, Dimann Daily is also recommended to be taken with an empty bladder and hydrated not earlier than one hour after intake. This will optimize the action of D-Mannose within the bladder.

Check out all the Dimann Product Kits to treat and/or hinder various types of cystitis.

I want to be honest, D-Mannose is not the magic formula that will make cystitis go away forever.

I want to tell you that D-Mannose is the beginning of a journey where you will have to arm yourself with patience,

but will bring numerous benefits to your life in the long run.

You may be wondering how other women who have already tried it will have found it?

What benefits has D-Mannose brought to their lives?

If you are curious, I invite you to read the real stories of women like you,

who have decided to share with us the story of their journey.

I hug you,
