Wing Woman: How The Ingredients Work

Wing Woman: How The Ingredients Work

Wing Woman is your go-to girl and your partner in crime. She specifically supports you in strengthening your bladder lining, so that the inflammation-causing bacteria have less chance. But, how does her ingredients actually work to help support you through the frustrations of UTIs:


D-mannose:

D-mannose is a sugar extracted from birch, that is not stored or metabolized by the body (so it has no calories!). Therefore, immediately after absorption into the blood, the body passes the D-mannose to the kidneys and then the bladder, where it can develop its full effect. In the bladder, the D-mannose molecules bind with the FimH proteins on the outer shell of the E. coli bacteria, so that they can no longer attach to the bladder mucosa or to each other. So they are simply flushed out in the toilet.


Vitamin D3:

When you have an UTI, your body needs extra vitamin D3. This fat-soluble vitamin plays an important role in our immune system and helps reduce inflammation in the body. Vitamin D3 also promotes the production of cathelicidin, an antimicrobial protein that helps neutrophils (specialized immune cells) and macrophages (phagocytes) in our immune system eliminate bacteria. Our bodies can produce the "sunshine vitamin" on their own through UVB radiation, but this amount is often insufficient during the darker seasons of the year and especially in cases of an UTI. Studies have shown that taking extra vitamin D3 can even reduce the risk of recurrent bladder infections.


Vitamin B2 (riboflavin):

Vitamin B2 belongs to the group of water-soluble vitamins. One of its functions is to protect our cells from oxidative stress. This means it helps protect lipids (e.g. in cell walls), DNA and proteins from free radicals. It also supports the normal function of the mucus membranes in our body, which are often the entry barrier for bacteria.


Rosemary powder:

The essential oils in rosemary have been shown in studies to have antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory effects. To give you the best effectiveness, we use an organic rosemary powder and not a rosemary extract. This is because powdered extracts are often dried at high heat, which causes the essential oils to degrade.

 

Grapefruit seed extract:

According to studies, our grapefruit seed extract is particularly rich in bioflavonoids, which are also antibacterial and antifungal against a wide range of bacterial species and fungi. The perfect complement to our rosemary powder.
