How Does it Work?
Chewing Nature’s Sweet Life Gum can help reduce cavities in two ways. First, chewing gum after a meal stimulates the production of saliva, which washes the teeth and neutralizes harmful acid produced by bacteria.
Second, xylitol helps inhibit the ability of bacteria to attach to teeth and tissues in the mouth and cannot be metabolized by bacteria, thus drastically slowing the process that creates harmful, enamel-eating acids.
Regular use of xylitol has been shown to help reduce dental plaque—the first stage of cavity development, tartar formation and tooth staining—and promote better oral health.
Unlike most sugar molecules, which have a six-carbon “hexose” unit, xylitol is a five-carbon “pentitol” sugar. Thanks to its distinctive structure, bacteria cannot utilize xylitol for energy. Its chemical configuration also inhibits the body’s ability to fully metabolize it, making it the perfect sweetener for those concerned with blood sugar balance.
Xylitol also has been shown to improve dental health. Decades of scientific research and over 1,500 papers have confirmed it. Lactic acid, the most damaging acid for your teeth, is formed by the fermentation of sugar by bacteria. Bacteria cannot break down xylitol, which reduces the formation of tooth-destroying acid and promotes an inhospitable environment for unwanted microorganisms.
