What is bearberry?
Bearberry is a shrub that is commonly found in the Netherlands and was already known in the Middle Ages for its cleansing effect on the urinary tract.
Why is D Mannose often used to treat cystitis?
When you have a bladder infection, it is often caused by E-coli bacteria. Although E-coli does have a protective function in your intestines, the bacterium causes problems if it gets into your bladder. Scientists suspect that E-coli bacteria can attach themselves to D Mannose, which enables you to get rid of both of them when you urinate. Researchers also believe that the D Mannose type of sugar fights bladder infections more effectively than the active substances in cranberry.
Why can bearberry be effective against cystitis?
The bearberry may potentially have an effect on E-coli bacteria in the bladder. When you consume bearberry, your body converts the arbutins from this berry into hydroquinone which fights E-coli bacterium.
