How Does it Work?
Eating Xylitol Mints after a meal or between meals helps promote dental health in two ways. First, it increases the production of saliva, which helps wash food particles and tooth-damaging acids from the mouth.
Second, xylitol inhibits the ability of bacteria to adhere to 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 reduce the formation of dental plaque and improve oral health.
Unlike most sugar molecules that 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 bodys’ ability to fully metabolize it, making it the perfect sweetener for those concerned with blood sugar balance. Xylitol has also 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 ferment xylitol, which results in less tooth-destroying acid and promotes an inhospitable environment for unwanted microorganisms.
