NOW® Cranberry Mannose Packets is a women’s probiotic formula with cranberry and D-mannose, which are two well-researched ingredients for urinary tract care. Our immune-supporting blend of 10 probiotic bacterial strains assists in the maintenance of a woman’s delicate microbial balance. Cranberries naturally possess flavonoids and other bioactive components that can also promote normal urinary tract ecology by helping to maintain a healthy mucosal surface within the bladder.
D-mannose is a naturally occurring simple sugar that is metabolized only in small amounts by the body, with the remainder being rapidly excreted with the urine. Because insubstantial amounts of D-mannose are used by the body, it does not interfere with healthy blood sugar regulation. In the urinary tract, D-mannose complements the body’s natural elimination process by maintaining a healthy environment in the bladder. Clinical studies have demonstrated that when taken regularly, D-mannose can help to maintain the health of the urinary tract.
