Progressive Laboratories, U-Tract Caps, D-Mannose, 90 CapsulesWrite a Review
Expiration Date: Jan 2017
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

Over 90% of all urinary tract infections are caused by the bacteria Escherichia coli (E. Coli), which is found as part of the "normal microflora" in every intestinal tract. In most cases bacteria enter the urinary tract through the urethral opening, most of which are simply washed away by the down-flow of urine. E. Coli, however, are covered with tiny 'finger-like' projections. At the top of these projections are amino acid/sugar complexes called "lectins" which allow the bacteria to stick to the inside walls of the urinary tract and even work their way upward. D-Mannose, a naturally occurring simple sugar, sticks to the E. Coli lectins even better than the lectins stick to human cells. When a large quantity of this sugar is present in the urine, it literally coats any E. Coli present so they can no longer stick to urinary tract walls and are washed away with normal urination. Only very small amounts of D-mannose are metabolized by the body. Most is excreted through the kidneys into the urine and bladder, so it doesn't interfere with blood/sugar regulation, even in diabetics. Also, since it is absorbed in the upper gastro-intestinal tract, it does not relocate "friendly" E. Coli or other beneficial bacteria normally present in the colon. Other ingredients have been added to the capsules for these reasons: Swedish Pollen Extract: works on the smooth muscle tissue lining in the bladder and urethra to allow for more complete elimination of urine. Cratavin: provides nutritional support for the cases of chronic urinary tract infections, prevention of urinary stone formation, and as a nutritional adjunct to treatment of benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). White Willow Bark: provides pain relieving salicin, an anti-inflammatory agent that is converted by the liver to acetyl-salicylic acid (natural aspirin).
