- Naturally occurring monosaccharide
- Helps maintain a healthy mucosal lining in the urinary tract
- Supports integrity of epithelial cells in the genitourinary tract
D-Mannose is a naturally occurring simple sugar found in foods such as cranberries, which may help maintain a healthy bladder lining. When taken orally, D-mannose is minimally metabolized and rapidly excreted in urine, so it does not tend to affect healthy blood sugar regulation. D-mannose appears to help maintain normal genitourinary function by binding to flora and and promoting the health of the mucosal lining of the urinary tract.
