(Newswire.net — March 9, 2018) Orlando, FL — When it comes to D-Mannose, we often associate this natural alternative with urinary tract infections. However, this natural ingredient may have more to offer than its potential UTI-health effects.

D-Mannose is believed to offer lectin-fighting and GI health-enhancing benefits. D-Mannose can be found in cranberry juice, which is a popularly consumed beverage of individuals with urinary tract infections.

Lectins are a type of protein that are sugar-binding and are found in grains and raw legumes. These proteins serve as a defense mechanism of plants against microorganisms, insects and pests. 

One of the things to know about lectins is that they are resistant to human digestion. They can even enter the blood unchanged.

There are certain types of lectins to avoid, such as the phytohemagglutinin. This type of lectin has been found to cause red kidney bean poisoning.

Lectins can also cause damage to the intestinal lining, which often leads to GI distress. Consumption of excess lectins may encourage the human body to evacuate gastrointestinal contents. This may lead to symptoms such as diarrhea, cramping and vomiting.

D-Mannose is believed to work wonders in improving gastrointestinal and digestive health. In some studies, it was found that this natural alternative has the potential to be useful as a prebiotic, which may significantly promote good bacterial growth in the gut.

According to some experts, this natural substance may offer support to health by simply increasing the levels of beneficial bacteria. Some evidence further found that it may help to bind and block lectins, which are resistant to digestion.

Through D-Mannose, lectins may be potentially stopped from reacting with as well as damaging the intestinal wall. More studies are still underway to validate the effects of this natural alternative on the gastrointestinal tract.
