They might be available in powder form. Powder supplements continue to grow in popularity for this reason and because they’re easy to mix into a glass of water or juice or a smoothie.

It is one of the main ingredients in shirataki noodles and is used as a thickening agent and emulsifier.
D-mannose is a simple sugar that comes from plants. It is found in cranberry, hibiscus, dandelion extract, and rose hips. D-mannose helps the body cleanse the urinary tract and maintain a healthy bladder lining.* For help maintaining urinary health, D-mannose powder may help.
