The Benefits of Xylitol
Xylitol is an all-natural sugar alcohol that is derived from
plants, fruits and vegetables. It also occurs naturally in
our bodies in small amounts. This healthy sweetener is
commonly used as a sugar substitute in many foods,
and to maintain oral and upper respiratory health. Xylitol
is used to sweeten chewing gums, sugar-free candy and
toothpastes. Many dentists, medical doctors, health
organizations and health professionals worldwide recommend
xylitol as a healthy sweetener.
