D-Mannose from Protocol for Life Balance™ is a simple sugar that occurs naturally in some plants, including cranberries. Although small amounts of D-Mannose are metabolized by the human body, much of it is rapidly excreted in the urine. In the bladder, D-Mannose can adhere to undesirable foreign particles, preventing them from sticking to the lining of the bladder. These particles can then be flushed away during urination. D-Mannose is safe and natural, and since it isn’t metabolized in the body, it doesn’t interfere with blood sugar regulation or create an imbalance in the normal body gut flora.
