ANSWER: D-mannose powder is commonly used as a dietary supplement to help prevent and treat urinary tract infections (UTIs).
When bacteria attach to the urinary tract and cause an infection, D-mannose can help to flush the bacteria out of the urinary tract and prevent them from attaching to the bladder or urinary tract walls.
This can help to reduce the risk of developing a UTI and can also help to clear an existing UTI. D-mannose powder can be mixed with water or other beverages and taken orally. It is also available in capsule form for those who prefer not to mix the powder with liquids. Consult with your healthcare provider to determine if D-mannose is appropriate for your individual needs and to determine the appropriate dosage.
It is also been used for helping Animals such as cats and dogs with UTI infections.
