ANSWER: No, D-mannose is not a probiotic. Probiotics are live microorganisms, typically bacteria, that are similar to the beneficial microorganisms found in the human gut.
They are often consumed in the form of dietary supplements or fermented foods to promote a healthy balance of bacteria in the gut and support overall health.
D-mannose, on the other hand, is a naturally-occurring sugar that has been shown to be effective against certain types of bacteria that can cause urinary tract infections (UTIs).
It is not a living organism and does not provide the same benefits as probiotics.
