What is NOW D-Mannose?
A UTI is when an infection occurs in any part of the urinary tract. It is estimated that 1 in 2 women will experience a UTI and for 20% of them, UTIs will be recurring. Some infections cant heal themselves but depending on the severity of the infection, if it remains untreated, it can potentially be fatal. Symptoms include painful and frequent urination, fever, pelvic pressure, shaking, and chills, leaving anybody experiencing these symptoms in the market for relief and prevention to keep them from recurring. This review is going to take a look further into NOW D-Mannose. D-Mannose is taken as a preventative measure and is believed to work because it attaches itself to UTI causing E. coli bacteria, causing them to stick to each other and stopping them from sticking to the walls of the urinary tract. Relief from symptoms is believed to be seen as fast as within 48 hours of treatment.

Our Final Review of NOW D-Mannose
This product appears to be decent. It offers a good serving of D-Mannose and comes in a big bottle. However, the price per bottle is exorbitantly high relative to other brands of D-Mannose. When researching a product, we always look for a quality manufacturer’s guarantee that offers consumer protection and this product does not offer any sort of guarantee. Considering the high price, without a guarantee, the consumer is at risk of a significant financial loss. D-Mannose is a supplement that can be taken over the course of an extended amount of time but they do not offer any bulk purchasing options or discounts. One bottle offers approximately a one month’s supply of D-Mannose powder so if taken for a full year it can come out to $720 a year! We have come across several other brands of D-Mannose that offer secure money-back guarantees and are available for more reasonable prices. Purchasing this product is too risky. With many products available that offer relief, additional health benefits and offer UTI prevention benefits, we are inclined to inquire further into other products before putting ourselves at risk for a significant financial loss by purchasing NOW D-Mannose.
