Our dental office is proud to announce that we are now carrying Xylitol products available for purchase. Xylitol has become well-known as a low-calorie dioxide and is a natural sugar substitute that looks and tastes just like sugar. Xylitol is in fruits, vegetables, and other natural sources, and is completely safe for children and adults. It is as sweet as sugar, yet contains 40% fewer calories, 75% fewer carbohydrates, none of the health concerns of artificial sweeteners, and has a low glycemic list of 7 , which has minimal effect on blood sugar levels. Xylitol is a white crystalline carb called a sugar substitute for patients, it's safe and even beneficial for diabetics, hypoglycemics, and carb counters.
In addition, Xylitol has been shown in scientific studies to inhibit the ability of bacteria to attach to teeth and tissues in the mouth, nose, and throat.
More than 20 years of clinical research confirms that regular use of Xylitol helps reduce dental plaque the first stage of cavity development, tartar formation, and tooth staining and promotes better oral health.
Numerous studies also have shown that healthcare products containing Xylitol help cleanse nasal passages and sinuses, and wash away bacteria, pollutants, pollens, and other irritants in sinuses and nasal passages.
In addition, it claims to decrease the risk of infections, improving conditions such as rhinitis and asthma. Xylitol goods are much more popular in Finland, where most sweets and candy can be found in xylitol and sucrose sugared varieties. Some Xylitol gum and candy goods are known worldwide, like Trident and Clear. Adverse effects rarely occur in people who consume this sweetener, as it is added to some chewing gums and other oral care products to prevent tooth decay and dry mouth.
Xylitol has been given the FDA’s safest rating and is approved by health and dental professionals around the world, including the ADA (American Dental Association).
We are stocking Xylitol gum and mints in various flavors including peppermint, spearmint, cinnamon, fruit punch, lemon and wild berry. If you are interested in purchasing Xylitol products and want to more about its benefits and uses so please call or visit our office or ask for more information, or stop by for a free sample!
