  • Preventing urinary tract infections (UTIs)
  • Treating inherited metabolic disorder
  • Bladder infections


Absorption of D-mannose Targets the Urinary Tract

D-mannose is not metabolized like other sugars in the body, it does not alter blood sugar levels and the plant components are filtered directly into the bladder. As D-mannose is excreted it essentially passes through the kidneys, fills the bladder and flushes the entire urinary tract when you urinate.

D-mannose is an Antibacterial

The sugars in D-mannose coat the lining of the urinary tract and bladder as they pass through the body. These sugars not only cover mucus membranes but they surround bacterial cells making it impossible for them to stick to the walls of the bladder or urinary tract. The bacteria remain free floating and are passed out of the body in the urine.

Up to half of all women will have some experience with a urinary tract infection. The main culprit in these infections is Escherichia coli(E.coli). This is the bacteria responsible for about 90% of all UTIs. D-mannose specifically rids the body of E.coli.


D-mannose appears to be safe for most adults. It can cause loose stools and bloating. In high doses, it might harm the kidneys.

  • Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Not enough is known about the use of D-mannose during pregnancy and breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.
  • Diabetes: Some research suggests that D-mannose might make blood sugarcontrol more difficult in people with diabetes.
