What is Vital Nutrients Mannose Powder?
UTIs account for approximately eight million annual doctor’s visits and are the second most common infection in America. Some infections are mild and will clear up on their own but many will require treatment. The most commonly prescribed treatment for UTIs are antibiotics but they are limited in the way that they can only eliminate an existing infection and cannot prevent future ones from occurring. Your body can also build up a resistance to antibiotics and they can potentially cause other health problems like yeast infections. This review is going to take a closer look at Vital Nutrients Mannose Powder. This powder is a dietary supplement that is taken as a way to prevent UTIs from occurring. The manufacturer claims that taking this supplement will help you to maintain a healthy mucosal lining in the urinary tract and will help support the integrity of epithelial cells in the genitourinary tract.
The only ingredient in this supplement is D-Mannose. D-Mannose is a simple sugar that is related to glucose and is commonly found in fruits. It is believed to prevent UTIs from occurring by causing E.coli bacteria to stick to each other, making it harder for the bacteria to stick to the urinary tract walls. D-Mannose also makes it easier for E.Coli to be excreted in the urine. If taken orally, D-Mannose binds itself to flora which offers support for urinary tract health.
Vital Nutrients recommends taking one-quarter or one teaspoon 1-3 times a day, dissolved in water. It can be taken with or in between meals or as otherwise instructed by your doctor.
If you are pregnant, nursing or under medical supervision, you should talk to your doctor before taking this product.

Our Final Review of Vital Nutrients Mannose Powder
This product appears to be a promising tool that can help you prevent UTIs from recurring. It contains a decent dosage of D-Mannose in every serving and it comes in an easy to take powder. However, this product is expensive relative to other D-Mannose supplements on the market and the manufacturer’s money-back guarantee is limited. D-Mannose is a supplement that can potentially be taken daily over the course of a lifetime to ward off UTIs but the manufacturer does not offer any bulk purchasing packages or discounts to make it financially easier to choose this supplement. There are also nearly no consumer reviews on any forum about this product, which suggests that this is not a popular or well-known choice. Taking these factors into consideration, this product is too expensive and risky. You are probably better off choosing a D-Mannose supplement that has a good manufacturer’s guarantee and generally positive consumer reviews.
