Look for Xylitol

There has been a lot in the news lately about Xylitol.

It is a natural occurring sugar substitute found in the fibers of many fruits and vegetables. It is tooth friendly and helps in cavity prevention, and has a confirmed plaque reducing effect. It has 40% fewer calories than table sugar, it is absorbed more slowly and does not contribute to high blood sugar and has no aftertaste.

Bacteria in the mouth use sugar to produce acid and help the acid stick to your teeth. This acid destroys the enamel on your teeth and causes tooth decay. But Xylitol is different than regular sugar, bacteria can’t make acid from Xylitol which means Xylitol can help stop the bacteria in your mouth. Less bacteria means less bad breath and strong healthy clean teeth.

Products using Xylitol include gums, mints, lollipops, candy, oral rinses, and fresh breath products. Always look for Xylitol as one of the first ingredients for maximum effectiveness. Health food stores carry a variety of Xylitol products.
