Bladder infections, or urinary tract infections (UTIs) are some of the most frequent clinical bacterial infections diagnosed in women. Accounting for nearly 25% of all infections. With 50-60% of women experiencing at least one UIT in their lifetime, and antibiotics being prescribed for the vast majority, UTIS can have an astounding effect on more than just our bladders. Side effects aside, frequent antibiotic use can lead to antibiotic resistance, which is one reason a whopping 95% of recurrent UTIs are from reinfection.
From this, it is obvious that “modern medicine” is no longer doing its job when it comes to the eradication of UTIs. We need to look to natural substances to see that there are other options out there. These options have shown clinical promise in not only treating but also preventing recurrent infections.

Cranberry is probably the most well-known herbal medicinal treatment for UTIs. Cranberry contains proanthocyanidins, which help reduce bacteria from colonizing. Interestingly, propolis taken with cranberry may be an even bigger blow to the bacteria in our bladders. Propolis is a resinous material collected by bees from plants and mixed with bee enzymes for use in their colonies to prevent bacterial and fungal growth. Propolis’s antimicrobial activities are well documented against different bacteria in humans. In a recent human clinical trial, it was shown for the first time that propolis potentiated the effect of cranberry proanthocyanidins on adhesion, motility, and biofilm formation of uropathogenic E. coli.

WomenSense Cranberry combines the concentrated 36:1 cranberry extract with D-mannose and propolis to help prevent recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs). Cranberry is a source of antioxidants with a long history of use for UTIs. The natural antimicrobial properties of D-mannose and propolis enhance cranberry’s protective benefits, helping to flush out urinary pathogens.

D-mannose is another natural substance useful in treating and preventing E. coli-associated UTIs. This simple sugar is found naturally in certain plants and fruits such as cranberries, peaches, cabbage, and tomatoes. It can bind to the outer structure of bacteria, blocking their ability to stick to the urinary tract wall. In a review of randomized, controlled trials, researchers confirmed that D-mannose significantly reduced the risk of recurrent UTIs with minimal side effects.
WomenSense D-Mannose uses a formula made with naturally occurring simple-sugar D-mannose to stop UTI infections before they start. When taken daily, D-mannose helps reduce the risk of recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs) in women. Each daily dose provides 2000 mg of D-mannose to help flush E. coli from the urinary tract without interfering with healthy blood sugar regulation. WomenSense D-Mannose is also available in powder.

Overactive Bladder? WomenSense Solutions for Overactive Bladder
An overactive bladder can be a symptom of many different things. Speak to your health care provider so they can rule out any possible UTI infections and review any prescribed medications that can also lead to bladder incontinence. Also, keep in mind that After motherhood and menopause, women often begin to have bladder control issues such as stronger urges to urinate, and leakage when coughing, sneezing or laughing. While this is most typically a daytime concern, some women also experience incontinence problems during the night.

With the emergence of antibiotic resistance, finding alternative treatments for UTIs is critical.
