Xylitol can aid in the prevention of dental caries, and has been shown to reduce plaque formation. It has about a third of the calories as table sugar, and is a healthy alternative for diabetics. Not only that it has a delicious, sweet taste, with no unpleasant aftertaste!
Xylitol is a naturally occurring carbohydrate, that looks and tastes just like regular table sugar. It is found widely in nature with most of the fruits and vegetables that we eat on a daily basis having small amounts. Xylitol also occurs naturally in our bodies – in fact, an average size adult manufactures up to 15 grams of Xylitol daily during normal metabolism. Xylitol can be extracted from any woody fibrous plant material and is commercially is extracted from resources such as corn cobs, and hardwoods.
Pure Xylitol is a white crystalline substance that looks and tastes like sugar and is easily incorporated into your daily diet. You should aim to get 5 exposures a day and is as easy as swapping out your current toothpaste and mouthwash to one containing Xylitol, replacing your regular sugar in tea and coffee for Xylitol powder, and always having Xylitol mints and gum on hand to chew or suck throughout the day. (Always check that 100% Xylitol is used in these products)
