Company History

anna sawkins sweet cures

Sweet Cures was founded back in 2003 by Anna Sawkins after discovering the benefits of a then little-known ingredient called D-Mannose. Personal experience of cystitis and kidney infections over 30 years and the adverse effects of antibiotic therapy led Anna Sawkins to research an effective and safe approach to bladder health. The side effects that Anna suffered from antibiotic therapy are the motivating force behind our commitment to 100% purity and safety and we will never betray these values at any point in production or in the way we treat our customers.

Sweet Cures was one of the first companies in the UK to produce and sell D-Mannose. This flagship product has since gone on to win coveted industry awards and commendations from all over the world.

As the Sweet Cures brand has grown, so has our passion to make an impact on our customers' lives: the product range has expanded, and Sweet Cures now offers several unique products.

Quality Control

Our products are made from the finest ingredients available on the market. As technology increases we are dedicated to further refine products to ensure product purity is always ahead of our competitors.

All our products are formed without unwanted excipients, binders and fillers. All our products are gluten free, NON-GMO and are allergy-friendly. And in early 2018 Wild Oregano Oil C80 achieved Soil Association organic certification.

Our Way of Doing Things

Sweet Cures is not just a business; we aim to provide an excellent service to our customers.

We are dedicated to providing the highest quality products available, and unlike many other companies who 'drop-ship' other people's products and are thus not in control of either quality or deliveries, Waterfall D-Mannose is produced and packed here in York, in our 'clean room' facility, and immediately dispatched directly to you. It is a pure grade product, and we firmly believe there is nothing better on the market. With Waterfall D-Mannose soluble powder, you just get pure natural 100% bio-active D Mannose.

Nobody knows more about using D-Mannose to help urinary tract, bladder, and prostate problems than we do, and we share expert information on our sites.

We have resisted passing over phone calls to a call-centre to 'take orders'. If you call us, you'll get through to someone at Sweet Cures who knows what you are going through, and who will talk to you person to person. If you need to know how to use Waterfall D-Mannose for your baby, your cat, your grandmother, or your prostate problem, we are happy to help.
