What is Xylitol and How Is It Related to Reducing Cavities?Twenty-five years of clinical testing have shown that xylitol is the healthiest choice available for a sweetener – both for your teeth and your overall good health. Dental associations in seven European countries have already endorsed its use in a variety of food and dental hygiene products. Typical sugars and starches generate an acid in your mouth that promotes decay. Xylitol is a natural substance extracted from certain fruits and vegetables that does not produce this decay-accelerating acid. It is so natural our bodies actually produce 5 to 10 grams each day. Research has also indicated it is beneficial to people who suffer from allergies. We recommend the use of products containing xylitol for fewer cavities and better respiratory health!
