Why do you need Easy Teeth xylitol xrystals?

Did you know new research shows that your dental health is closely related to your overall well-being? The health of the oral cavity affects the health of the whole body and the other way around; loss of the health of your teeth may be an indicator that the whole body is too acidic and under stress.

If the body becomes acidic it tries to neutralize the pH value with minerals by extracting these from the bones or teeth. In today’s world, where we eat way too much industrially processed and refined raw materials, our body receives an amount of minerals that is insufficient to balance this acidity.

This is why effective dental care, from the very beginning, is important in order to remain healthy. Healthy dental care guidelines indicate that we should brush our teeth a minimum of twice a day and use floss to fight off bacteria and plaque and remove the food caught between the teeth.

But, even after you have brushed your teeth correctly, the teeth get under attack again during the day. This is almost always the case since during the day we take many foods and drinks that make the mouth acidic. Consequently, the body fails to mineralize the gums and the teeth effectively.

The benefits of xylitol crystals Easy Teeth

To support the teeth during the day we must either brush more often or complete dental care with something else. Xylitol is the ideal choice for this. Xylitol cannot be metabolized by acid-producing bacteria. Xylitol helps keep your teeth and gums strong and helps the body effectively mineralize the teeth in an alkaline environment. However, breakthrough science from the university of Murcia, Spain, shows: to ensure optimum effects, it is important to let the Xylitol touch the teeth and gums for at least 7 minutes.

Xylitol dissolves in the mouth very quickly, and it is difficult to keep it in in the mouth and touching the teeth long enough. Xylitol is often used for instance in chewing gum. These chewing gums have quite a low concentration of xylitol in the first place, which dissolves in several seconds after starting to chew the gum. Therefore the xylitol fails to have the desired effect. One has to chew a lot of these chewing gums every day in order to gain the desired effect The same holds for toothpastes with xylitol. But now there are the Easy Teeth Xylitol Crystals! You eat them like a candy that takes 10-15 minutes to dissolve in the mouth. All this time the xylitol is touching the teeth and helps make them stronger!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is Xylitol?

Xylitol was discovered by the German biochemist Emil Fischer in 1891 but not commercially used initially. When Finland suffered a severe shortage of sugar during the Second World War, in search for a replacement Finnish scientists discovered it was possible to extract Xylitol from birch bark and use it as a natural sweetener in food. Xylitol has the property that it is metabolized in the human body without using insulin, making it suitable for diabetics. Since its discovery at the end of the 19th century, Xylitol is also discovered in fruits and vegetables like corn. It was also discovered that the human body itself produces small amounts of Xylitol. Science shows there is no molecular difference in the harvested end product with regards to its source.

Is Xylitol safe to use?

Xylitol is a natural product that is absolutely safe to use. In 1963 it was approved by the American Food and Drug Administration. It’s glycemic index is low (7) and since it doesn’t require insulin for its metabolism it is ideal for diabetics. After consumption, approximately one third of the xylitol is absorbed into the liver. The other two thirds are digested by the digestive tract, where they are degraded by intestinal bacteria into short-chain fatty acid.

A gradual introduction to xylitol is recommended since it could have a mild laxative effect in the case of excessive consumption. Xylitol is not cariogenic because it is not fermented into acids by bacteria in the mouth and protects the health of gums and teeth.

Caution: xylitol is not for dogs

Because the metabolic processes of a dog are different than those of a human, xylitol poses a risk of toxicosis and hypoglycemia if ingested by dogs. Common symptoms associated with the ingestion of xylitol may include depression, vomiting and hypoglycemia. If you suspect your dog has ingested xylitol, contact your veterinarian immediately.
