Xylitol - 75 Packets

Xylitol is a sugar alcohol that is naturally present in small amounts of various fruits and vegetables. The Finnish name for Xylitol is "koivusokeri", or birch sugar, a reference to the extraction of Xylitol from birch bark.  NOW Pure Xylitol is derived from a non-GMO corn source.  Considerable amounts of Xylitol is formed in the body every day as a result of normal metabolic processes. 

Although it is classified as a carbohydrate, this sweet crystalline substance is slowly absorbed from the digestive tract and does not cause rapid rises in blood glucose.  In addition, the caloric impact of Xylitol is typically about 40% lower than other carbohydrates, making it a healthy addition to any diet.  Discovered simultaneously by French and German chemists in 1891, Xylitol has been safely used since the 1970's as an ingredient in gums and candies. 

Dentists and Nutritionists alike encourage the use of Xylitol due to its unique and clinically proven dental benefits.  Xylitol is a sugar alcohol that cannot be utilized by undesirable particles in the mouth.  Xylitol is a safe alternative for your sweet tooth.

Xylitol has a wide variety of uses and benefits, from improving the health of your teeth to maintaining upper respiratory health. When properly used, Xylitol use results in fewer incidents of tooth decay. Many large-scale clinical studies have shown it to be related to having long-lasting dental benefits.

Over 25 years of clinical testing confirms that xylitol is the best sweetener for teeth, which has led to official endorsements by dental associations in Finland, Norway, Sweden, England, Ireland, Estonia and the Netherlands of products containing high levels of this sweetener.
