More info

  • Xylitol is a five-carbon sugar. This means that it is antimicrobial and can help to prevent the growth of bacteria. Unhealthy bacteria in the mouth has been shown to increase cavities and periodontal diseases like gingivitis. Contrary to refined white sugar, xylitol helps protect teeth from cavities and boosts the regeneration of gums. It is so beneficial for teeth after brushing and flossing just before bed because the sugar will heal your gums and teeth as you sleep. It has antibacterial properties that can prevent middle-ear infection in children. It does this by blocking bacteria from attaching to cells within the body.
  • Studies have also shown that xylitol is beneficial to bone health with scientists speculating that this is a result of xylitol aiding in calcium absorption within the intestine.
  • It's a natural insulin stabiliser. Xylitol assists with the bodies immune system and helps protects against degenerative diseases, further to being anti-ageing. First discovered in 1891 by a German chemist, xylitol was re-discovered during World War II by the Finnish who were suffering from sugar shortages and looking for a viable alternative. Conveniently, Finland has dense forest areas with Birch trees and, with the discovery that xylitol can be metabolised without insulin, the alternative was well received. Since the 1960's, xylitol continues to be used as a sugar alternative for diabetics and those with impaired glucose tolerance or insulin resistance.
