What is D-Mannose?
D-mannose is a naturally occurring simple sugar that your body utilizes to help cleanse the urinary tract and maintain a healthy bladder lining. It’s metabolized only in small amounts, with excess amounts rapidly excreted in urine, so it won’t interfere with healthy blood sugar regulation. Clinical studies have demonstrated that, when taken regularly, D-mannose promotes normal urinary tract function by cleansing and maintaining the health of the bladder lining.

Technically known as D-mannose, this is a simple, six-carbon sugar. Mannose naturally occurs as a monosaccharide, or a simple sugar, in fruits such as blueberries and cranberries, as well as in other plants and fungi. NOW® Pure D-Mannose has a caloric value of four calories per gram, which is similar to other sugars.
Mannose exists in two forms, alpha and beta. The alpha form is mild and sweet, while the beta form is bitter. The natural manufacturing methods for mannose result in a mixture of these two forms, yielding a product that is mildly sweet with a slight bitter aftertaste.
