Clinicians Bladder Support contains D-Mannose which is a natural plant sugar which helps support healthy bladder and urinary tract function. The harmful bacteria preferentially bind to the D-mannose, which aids in their removal from the bladder and urinary tract.

Clinicians Bladder Support is a natural, non-antibiotic approach to managing bladder or urinary tract infections.
This product comes as a powder which is mixed with water right before use. Administration as a fluid allows it to be rapidly absorbed for fast results. The pleasantly-flavored concoction is also ideal for those unable or unwilling to swallow pills. The supplement is plant-based and non-toxic if used as directed, safe for use in patients as young as 4 years old. It can also be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding.
Hassle-Free Bladder Health
Clinicians Bladder Support is an over-the-counter product, which does not require the hassle and expense of doctor and pharmacist visits. It is also free of antibiotics and will not produce the unpleasant side effects associated with use of such medications, or contribute to resistant bacteria.
Despite being classified as a supplement, Clinicians Bladder Support does not require regular use. To the contrary, this product should only be used when an infection is present. It works best if treatment starts at the earliest symptoms of an infection---be sure to have it on-hand before you need it.
Each bottle of the supplement includes a measuring spoon which holds 1.25 ml (1/4 teaspoon) of the powder. Dosing depends on age.
For children age 4 and up:
Improvements should be noticed quickly, within the first 24 hours. Improvements should be significant within 48 hours. The final three days of lower doses is simply to clear out any lingering remnants of the infection.
If there are no significant results within 48 hours a doctor should be seen; the infection may not be caused by standard bacteria or it may be very severe.
How it Works
Clinicians Bladder Support contains only one active ingredient; D-mannose. D-mannose is a naturally-occurring carbohydrate sugar which is produced in the body and found in certain plants, such as cranberries---which are well-known for promoting bladder health and fighting bladder infections.
Bladder infections are typically caused by a build-up of bacteria on bladder walls or in the urinary tract. In normal circumstances the pH of urine and the frequent flushing of the whole system when urine is expelled is enough to keep harmful bacteria in check, but sometimes infections develop regardless. Some factors that may contribute to bladder infections are:
While antibiotics kill bacteria, which are then secreted in urine, D-mannose takes a slightly different approach. Many bacteria will bind to the sugar, if present in the bladder, rather than continuing to cling to bladder walls. The D-mannose---complete with attached bacteria---is then excreted in urine. When there is a relatively large volume of D-mannose available---such as supplied by Clinicians Bladder Support---this action is typically sufficient to eliminate the majority of the bacteria.
Not all potentially harmful bacteria are attracted to D-mannose, however; about 10 percent of bladder infections do not respond to the supplement, in which case antibiotics are desirable.
Men, women and children can use this fast acting formula to support healthy bladder and urinary tract function. It is a powerful combination of D-mannose, a natural plant sugar and cranberry extract. They work synergistically together. The combination supports bacterial balance more effectively than each ingredient alone. The formula is further enhanced by the addition of Vitamin C that has been shown to give additional support during pregnancy. Convenient sachets allow immediate use when required.
Adults: Mix contents in a glass of water & stir well. For immediate support take 1-2 sachets daily, thereafter 1 sachet daily.
Children 4 years and over: Take 1 sachet daily.
