Did you know?
ZeinPharma® uses only the best birch mannose in its purest form for its D-Mannose products. Many other producers use maize instead as a low-cost alternative. In the case of maize, however, the origin may be genetically modified. Back in 2012, we were one of the first manufacturers to successfully establish pure D-mannose from birch bark on the German market and we therefore have many years of scientific experience and raw material expertise. It is not for nothing that we are the number 1 with many products in the German pharmacy!
D-Mannose is a bioactive simple sugar (chemical monosaccharide) which is mainly found as a natural component of cell and mucous membranes in our body. Mannose is also found in small amounts in our foods, for example in various fruits. Unlike related sugars, such as the more well-known glucose, D-mannose is not metabolised in the body, but reaches the kidneys directly via the bloodstream and from there unused the bladder, where it is discharged.
Pay attention to the following quality characteristics of D-Mannose:
In addition to birch bark, D-Mannose also has another quality characteristic, the unique taste. Genuine birch mannose has a sweet and bitter taste at the same time. The sweetness is caused by the α-form, the bitterness by the β-form of the natural sugar. When buying D-Mannose, therefore, you should always pay attention to both taste components.
ZeinPharma® stands for optimally dosed monoproducts with the highest degree of purity. Analyses from independent German laboratories confirm that our D-mannose was not diluted with glucose, sucrose or other substances. In addition, other ingredients, such as cranberry, are deliberately avoided.
Our expert tip
If you want to enhance the natural effect of D-mannose, you should keep an eye on your acid-base balance and make sure that the pH value is as acidic as possible. In this case, a simultaneous supplementation with vitamin C or L-methionine may be useful. Here we recommend e. g. 2 g Natural D-Mannose plus 500 mg vitamin C daily.
