What is Xylitol?

Pure xylitol is a white crystalline substance that looks and tastes like sugar. Studies using xylitol as either a sugar substitute or a small dietary addition have demonstrated a dramatic reduction in new tooth decay.

Xylitol is right here, inside, already. Our bodies produce up to 15 grams of xylitol from other food sources using. Xylitol is not a strange or artificial substance, but a normal part of everyday metabolism.

Xylitol is widely distributed throughout nature in small amounts. Some of the best sources are fruits, berries, mushrooms lettuce, hardwoods, and corn cobs. 

 Xylitol can also be conveniently delivered to your teeth via chewing gum, tablets, or even candy. You can implement our xylitol program anywhere, anytime. It fits right in with the most frantic schedules and you don’t need to change your normal routine to make room for xylitol. Some health regimens require iron willpower, discipline, and commitment. But xylitol tastes so good that it becomes automatic. 

Children love it!
