Xylitol Chewing Gum gaining in Popularity  Prevents Tooth Decay

Xylitol Chewing Gum

First researched in Finland, Xylitol has shown in numerous studies to prevent tooth decay.  Other research conducted in Brazil and Michigan also show that Xylitol in chewing gum helps to prevent cavities.  Xylitol is a found in plants, trees, fruits and vegetables.  The more the chewing gum contains Xylitol, the better the benefits to preventing cavities.

The benefits to chewing gum with Xylitol are many.  It helps to prevent tooth decay.  It will replace minerals in the tooth decayed lesions.  It reduces the number of cavities and reduces the amount of plaque build-up on teeth.  Chewing gum with Xylitol will increase saliva production preventing dryness in the mouth.


Other sugar substitutes are better than sugar sweetened gum,  but research showed that the more Xylitol that was in the gum the better at preventing tooth decay and repairing the teeth by replacing mineral that were lost.

ABC 7, Los Angeles news, reported that there is also mints available that contain the Xylitol sweetner.  Their report said that you would need to get 6 grams of Xylitol per day by chewing gum or taking a mint containing Xylitol.  That would be around 3 mints per day if they took Smint Xylicare which contains 2 grams per mint.


Epic Xylitol gum contains around 1 gram of Xylitol per serving.  Carefree Koolerz gum also has Xylitol in their gum.  It can take 4 6 sticks of gum to get the 6 grams of Xylitol per day.  Look at the sugar free gums label for the ingredients the ingredients list the most first this should help to alert you on the gum with the most Xylitol.
