Time To Kick That Recurrent UTI For Good
Up to 60% of women will get a urinary tract infection in their lifetimes. Nearly a quarter of all women will develop a recurring UTI. Urinary tract infections are responsible for more than 10 million doctor visits each year.1
Bottom line? If you have a UTI, you’re not alone.
Some Good News About UTI Prevention
Have you seen this study yet? No?
Researchers led by Thomas Hooton, M.D., the clinical director of the division of infectious diseases at the University of Miami School of Medicine, recently determined that women prone to UTIs who increased their daily water intake by to 2.8 liters total per day were significantly less likely to get another UTI than those who did not.
Let Us Break It Down For You
The research team followed 140 healthy premenopausal women with a history of recurring urinary tract infections (3 or more in the last year or 2 in the last six months). These women self-reported a low water intake of less than 1.5 liters daily. That’s about 6.3 cups.
The group was divided in two: 70 women were instructed to increase their daily water intake by 1.5 liters, and the remaining 70 women were the control group (no change in daily routine).

The researchers tracked the women for one year. In the prevention group, the average daily water increase was 1.15 liters, for a daily total of 2.8 liters (12 cups). The average daily intake was 1.2 liters (5 cups) in the control group.
Bottom Line: Drink 2.8 Liters Of Water For UTI Prevention
At the end of the study period, the group of women that increased their water intake (to about 2.8 liters per day) experienced 48% fewer urinary tract infections than did the control group. The prevention group also had more days before their next UTI: 143 compared to 85 for the control group.
This reduction in urinary tract infections for the prevention group meant that there were also 47% fewer courses of antibiotics prescribed to them than in the control group. This is an incredibly important statistic considering the prevalence of antibiotic resistance throughout the world and the possibility that soon antibiotics may not work as well—or at all—as they have in the past because of antibiotic resistance.
So, your life really does depend on avoiding the use of antibiotics as much as possible.2
You Said The Second Most Important UTI Prevention Tool
Tell Me About D-Mannose
D-mannose is a natural sugar that has been scientifically proven to attach to bacteria and prevent them from latching to your urinary tract or bladder tissue. It is not digested the same way as other sugars such as glucose, so it does not cause weight gain. D-mannose is primarily derived from either corn or birchwood, though it can also be manufactured and is found in trace amounts in some fruits and berries.3
