health sugar mannitose CAS 3458-28-4
100% Natural Health Sugar mannitose is a natural occurring simple sugar that appears to be a safe,
practical alternative for the treatment of urinary tract infections
mannitose is absorbed eight times slower than glucose, and when ingested, is
not converted to glycogen or stored in the liver, but rather goes
directly to the blood stream from the upper GI tract. Hence, seminose is mostly filtered through the kidneys and routed to the bladder.
E-coli are the cause of up to 90% of all bladder/ cystitis and UTI
infections. The bladder lining is comprised of polysaccharide
molecules. Finger-like projections on the cell surface of E. coli
bacteria adhere to these molecules, initiating an infection. In the
presence of D-Mannose, E. coli preferentially attach to seminose molecules forming a complex and they are flushed out in the urine.
Studies suggest that seminose is 10 times more effective than cranberries in dislodging E. coli
bacteria from the bladder wall, and, as such, can ameliorate more
than 90% of UTIs in 24-48 hours.

Storage and Stability
The product would be stable for 2 years from the date of
manufacture in the sealed original container.
It should be protected from light, heat and moisture, keep the
container tightly closed. Reseal immediately after use.
seminose appears to be safe for when used orally and appropriately. As a
sugar widely present in foods, seminose is assumed to be safe. However, the maximum safe dosage has not
been established in healthy adults, nor in pregnant or nursing
women or young children. Very weak evidence from test tube studies
hints that consumption of gigantic amounts of mannose by pregnant
women could conceivably increase risk of birth defects in their
Shelf life:24 months
