Xylitol is a naturally occurring substance that is crystalline in form and looks and tastes like sugar. Xylitol is all natural, not artificial, and is a normal substance used in everyday metabolism. Our bodies produce up to 15 grams of xylitol each day. Found mostly in fruits and vegetables, xylitol is perfectly safe for human consumption and has been given the FDA's safest rating as a food additive. Because xylitol is absorbed slowly and only partially utilized by the body, it contains 40% less calories than other carbohydrates, about 2.4 calories per gram.

Over 2 decades of Clinical studies and use confirm that xylitol is effective in reducing dental decay and bacterial growth. Sugar free chewing gums and candies made with xylitol have received official endorsements from six national dental associations. Xylitol has also been found to have other substantial heath benefits and serves as a defense against sinus, ear, and upper respiratory infections.

In addition, xylitol serves as a popular sweetener for diabetics and people with hypoglycemia. It has a LOW GLYCEMIC INDEX (7) and has little effect on blood sugar levels, great for keeping net carbs low. Dentists, medical doctors, periodontists, pediatricians and other heath professions and organization worldwide recommend Xylitol. Studies have shown that xylitol chewing gum can help prevent ear infections (acute otitis media); the act of chewing and swallowing assists with the disposal of earwax and clearing the middle ear, whilst the presence of xylitol prevents the growth of bacteria in the eustachian tubes which connect the nose and ear.This action that xylitol has on bacteria in the back of the nose is best explained on the site dealing with the nasal application of xylitol. When bacteria enter the body they hold on to our tissues by hanging on to a variety of sugar complexes. The open nature of xylitol and its ability to form many different sugar-like structures appears to interfere with the ability of many bacteria to adhere. Xylitol can be applied nasally through a saline solution containing xylitol, such as Xlear Nasal Wash.
