The following review is for a product called Swanson Premium D-Mannose. This product claims to support urinary tract health and nourish the healthy flora that colonizes the membranes of the urinary tract. You are most probably suffering from a UTI if you experience burning during urination, lower abdominal pain or aching, frequent urges to urinate and possibly blood in the urine as well as urine that appears cloudy. This product will help with this.
Found inside this supplement is 700 mg D-Mannose. D-Mannose is a simple sugar found in many fruits related to glucose. Other names for D-Mannose are D-Manosa, Carubinose Seminose and Mannose. This supplement also contains gelatin and it may contain one or more of the following: microcrystalline cellulose (plant fiber), magnesium stearate as well as silica.
This supplement is to be used as a dietary supplement. One capsule is to be taken twice daily with water. For maximum benefit, two capsules should be taken twice daily. This recommended dosage seems like the average recommended dose usually given for such a supplement. Do not drink your first dose of D-Mannose with too much water as it dilutes the concentration of D-Mannose in the bladder. Take the dose with no more than half a glass of water. Proceed to drink lots of water after 45 minutes to an hour.
Possible Side Effects

Let your doctor know if you are taking this supplement.

Conclusion Of Our Swanson Premium D-Mannose Review
This particular supplement offers a great low cost with benefits if more than just one bottle is purchased. It has many positive customer reviews. However, there is not enough information stated on the product on the possible side effects of what too much intake of such a product may do to you. There are also other very beneficial natural key ingredients that help support urinary tract health that this supplement does not provide. We have found that there are other products on the market that seem to offer more for a similar price.
