How is xylitol good for teeth?
Tooth decay starts with harmful bacteria in the mouth. Sugary foods give these bacteria energy to multiply and produce acids that dissolve the enamel of the tooth and cause decay. Xylitol has the opposite effect, inhibiting their growth, killing the bacteria (they can fall by as much as 90%) and preventing acid attacks. Xylitol also reduces the bacteria’s ability to stick to your teeth so plaque is easier to remove.
What is xylitol?
Xylitol is a sweetener found naturally in trees and plants. The best source is birch and beech trees. It was first discovered in Finland during the early 20th Century when cane sugar was hard to come by, and the dental benefits of this magic ingredient only came to light many years later. Despite xylitol tasting the same as sugar, it’s low calorie and has a low GI of 7, making it great for diabetics as it won’t spike insulin levels.
If xylitol is so great, why haven't I seen it in the UK?
Xylitol is massively popular in other countries, particularly in Scandinavia and Japan where they have a more progressive approach to dental care. Unfortunately, the UK is a bit behind at present, with most manufacturers still preferring to use ingredients like sugar, sorbitol or aspartame as they are much cheaper. In fact, over 80% of mints consumed in Great Britain are made of sugar which is strange really when you consider that they just create more bacteria in your mouth and damage your teeth.
How much xylitol is in Peppersmith Peppermint Xylitol Gum?
Each piece of Peppersmith Peppermint Xylitol Gum contains just over 1g (11g per pack) so you would need to have about five pieces of gum per day to get the full benefits.
Chew approximately 5 pieces of Peppersmith Peppermint Xylitol Gum per day to get the full benefits.
